I did, but between the time that I bought it and the time that I picked it up again, I fell in love all over and now I wouldn’t change a thing. 

So it sounds like you have another dress, right?  I would try to sell the dress that you don’t want.  I’m sure there must be someone out there who would love to own it.

Have you tried contacting the store that you purchased it from?  Maybe they can help you find a new home for it. 🙂

Don’t sweat it!  This is common.  I personally am a basketcase because I pretty much went through TWO dresses before I landed on the third.  It was nuts!  Just wear what you feel right in.

I was trying to be budget conscious when we were planning our wedding, and I jumped early to buy a used dress that I thought would work fine. Later on, I knew I didn’t really like that dress, but felt guilty about wanting to get a different one. I decided that it was important to be comfortable in what I would be wearing, so I got a second dress, and sold the first one. I lost a bit of money reselling that first dress, but I don’t regret not wearing it for one second.

Try to resell the dress – with the interest in vintage-style weddings, you might be surprised at what you can get for it!

I was in this situation, and I have to say, I think it’s pretty common!

I bought a wedding gown a year before our wedding because it was a good price, and I was sick of looking because I wasn’t finding what I wanted. I kind of gave up. Six months before our wedding, it hit me that I really didn’t like the dress I bought, and I had a freak out moment about it. My sister and husband (then FI) told me I needed to go find another dress. I actually wanted a short dress, and so I started to look at Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses that came in white, and found one. It was perfect for me. I was SO relieved.

I kept my other dress because it was bought and paid for, and tried to sell it for a long time. I could never get a buyer, so I sold it to a consignment shop for a small fee (about a quarter what I paid for it). So, I ended up losing some money, but my second dress was so cheap that it didn’t matter to me.

You HAVE to at least like your wedding dress. You made the right call!
