Hi all, my wedding date is October 5, 2013 and I started my bridal gown search this past July. I thought I found a designer to work with at a specific bridal gown store, but it fell through due to lack of professionalism and false advertising. I still have yet to find “THE” dress or make a decision on what I’ve found thus far. I’m wondering if my bad experience has hindered my feeling of excitment and caused my indecisiveness. Does anyone have any advice from their own experience? I’ve gone to 7 stores and can never find a complete dress that I love, I find myself saying, “I love the top, but not the bottom” and vice versa. I wanted to order my gown by the end of this October to avoid any mishaps in the ordering process. I’m staring to wonder if I will ever find the perfect dress. I need some tips and or opinions because as much as I want to take a break from the whole search, time is ticking away… Thank you in advance!

Firstly, the dress search will certainly end because your wedding day will make it end! That’s the good news.
The bad news is, you have to stop looking for the perfect gown. There are many, many gorgeous gowns. The designers make sure of this, or else they wouldn’t be in business. If you can accept the fact that it’s not gonna be possible to see every gown in the world by your wedding date, then you might be able to bring yourself down from the bridal fantasy of the perfect dress search.
Also, Randy on say yes to the dress says that you didn’t date every single guy in the world before finding the perfect one, so let it be the same for the dress. I hate to say this, but with 6 billion on the planet, you probably don’t have the perfect guy. Now, I’m sure you’ll come back with saying, but he’s this and that, and it’s what I want in a man. Okay, let that be so for the dress, too. Look positively at the dresses and let them be “good enough.”
I have a problem with dress regret also, but I keep telling myself the reasons I chose my dress. With anything you choose, be it a house, a car, a job, it’s not gonna be “the perfect,” but it will be good enough.
