I recently bought my dress and I fell in love with the dress! So without thinking further I bought it on the spot. Now I am somewhat sad that I did not take more time to look around. Also, at times I feel like I bought the dress out of impulse. Has anyone felt this way about their dress? Like you want to cancel the order and look around more?
I cannot afford another dress and I certainly cannot cancel the order. I am just wondering if this is one of those things that brides go through….

Yes, this happened to me! My dress was a sample, marked down 50% off and they could not hold it for me. As such it was a bit of an impulse buy. I then looked at the photos my mom had taken of me in the dress (she used flash and her bad quality camera) and began to doubt my purchase even though I had loved it so much at the boutique. I know yours is on order so you can’t try your exact dress on, but what changed my mind was trying on my dress again. I tried it on this weekend and remembered exactly why I had chosen it (other than the price tag!). I feel so much better. Could you possibly return to the boutique and try on the sample again? It might help!

Post a picture. I bought my dress about a month after I got engaged after trying on probably a hundred dresses. It was the dress I liked the best by far…..BUT I still look at other dresses online and in pictures and wonder if I choose the right dress. I just tell myself that there is a reason why I chose it. I’m sure it will work out for both of us.

I got cold feet because I initially wanted a Maggie Sottero dress which I always loved. However, the one I found was not Maggie Sottero. Also, I started seeing “prettier” dresses and I started having doubts.
I am going this saturday to try it on again. So I can remind myself not to cheat on my dress! 🙂

OMG this is so me right now. I fell in love with an anne barge dress (lf 145 to be exact…) and would not even dream of looking at another! everything was ugly compared to her! haha. but due to the excessive price of the dress and veil i had to keep looking. i ended up purchasing a watters dress a few weeks ago which i loved the day i tried it on (it was the only one that had ever taken my mind off the anne barge one)! but i just saw a fellow bee post that she had purchased the anne barge dress i weanted so badly and now i can;t stop thinking about it again! ahh! its making me dislike my dress 🙁 i guess i need to go try it on again and fall back in love!

It’s funny that I came across this ((well…maybe i was searching)). I just bought a dress yesterday at David’s Bridal and boy is it ever poofalicious! I tried on a lot of the hot gowns that are big sellers now with the drop waist and the pick ups or lace up bodices…you name it. Nothing really jumped out at me though until I decided to try on a poofy one. The moment I looked at myself in the mirror and my mother and mother-in-law to be saw it, they were smiling and crying and I loved it.
The other mothers in the store had a hard time focusing on their own daughters because they were looking at my dress…… . . .
So we bought it…
THE NEXT DAY:
OMG, it’s so poofy, the pictures online don’t really look anything like I remember, blah blah blah…
The only things that helped me get through the jitteres were:
1.My awesome fiance who didn’t care what I wore as long as I was going to marry him and head off on our honeymoon together in it.
2. The consultant (who after I told her I wasn’t sure about the poof vs. my fiance) told me that he would be so enchanted and so excited to be marrying me it wouldn’t matter.
3. My common sense that said. It’s only one day and this dress won’t help us out of our first fight, or create more hours in a day when we figure out that we suddenly have lost time for date night a few years from now…
what really makes a marriage and happiness in it are the people and their attitudes…don’t stress about the dress, it honestly isn’t worth it.
Look in the mirror, know you are beautiful and he thinks so too.

Yes I had those feelings. I ended up purchasing the dress I loved 3 months before the wedding! I made the right decision for me…
