its pretty- i chose my dress after 5 dresses on the first shopping trip so no you didnt choose too quickly dont let anyone make you second guess yourself. there is a reason you fell inlove with the dress . just keep your brain off dresses and dont go into any more bridal stores and try on any more so you dont end up having mutiple dress regrets. start working on other wedding items that need to be done

Agreed with a PP! You love your dress and that’s what matters. When you find the right dress, you just know. Don’t let anyone discourage your choice. You did not choose too quickly if it’s the dress you fell in love with! 

Avoid looking at any other dress boutiques, and for me I had to stop watching “say yes to the dress” and other shows like that or I started having the same doubt’s. Congratulations on picking a lovely wedding gown!

You look amazing! I’m sure you’d look great in other dresses, too but clearly you’ve already picked a winner!

megan.mcginley.587:  I chose even faster than you 🙂 sometimes you know what you want! I had a little second guessing too for the same reasons but at this point I am really happy and can’t wait to wear my dress soon! If you love it that’s all that matters!

It’s beautiful on you.

Don’t second-guess yourself. And don’t try on any more dresses. When you find “the one” it’s time to stop shopping around.

I chose my dress after trying on about 7 dresses. I was in and out of the store within 2 hours. Btw, I love your dress!

Okay, that dress is seriously stunning! I completely understand what you’re talking about though. In fact, it bummed me out for about a month. Like the poster above, I also tried on about 7-8 dresses and didn’t have a “this is IT” moment either but I love my dress. Everytime I looked at other dresses that I possibly loved more weren’t in the budget I was willing to spend nor was that much better than the one I got.

Nope, not at all. If it’s the right dress then it’s the right dress. Doesn’t matter if it’s the fifth dress you’ve tried on or the fiftieth. And that dress looks fab on you! My dress was only the third one that I’d tried on!

megan.mcginley.587:  No way! If you love the dress, you really just know. You’re lucky that it didn’t take you too long to find the dream dress. By the way, you look great! This dress is so beautiful! Congratulations on finding the one!

megan.mcginley.587:  I have been wondering the same thing too! I went to my first store, two months ago, with pictures in hand of my favourite styles. The dress I thought I would love the most couldn’t be found and if it wasn’t for my Mum looking at the last second I wouldn’t have found it! I tried that dress on first and loved it, I tried on a couple different styles and designers but I kept coming back to that first dress. Finally, I put the dress back on and she glammed me up with accessories and I just knew. Now I am going through regret, I had such love for it, but now I wonder if I picked too soon and if I got the wrong dress. <br /><br /><br />I think the issue is that we have this huge expectation about “the dress.” At the end of the day it is only a dress. You will wear it for a few hours but the marriage will last a lifetime. Once you are all dolled up with make up and hair and are walking down the aisle to marry the man of your dreams it won’t matter what you are wearing! Another theory, maybe you are feeling a little sad that this exciting aspect of finding the dress is over. After all, that is the first thing I wanted to do after getting engaged and to have it over so quickly kinda sucks, especially if you watch lots of Say Yes to the Dress.


But I have to say, I love your dress! Yours is quite similar to mine and it fits you great! Just forget about the dress now and focus on other things 🙂

megan.mcginley.587:  Being decisive is NEVER a bad thing. I only looked at one wedding venue. I knew what I wanted, and I wasn’t afraid to make my decision. Don’t listen to people. That’s just one thing you can check off your list.
