    @LadyBear:  Actually, my experience was similar to yours. I bought my dress, and after about a week it sunk in how different that dress was from what I had originally been looking for. There were so many freaking beautiful dresses out there! It wasn’t regret in the sense that I wanted to get a different one, just stress that I should have picked the runner up.

    And then I went back to see it later, and each time I fell a little more in-love-again, and then recently I felt so sad when I dropped it off at the alterations shop.

    I did too.  I bought my dress the first day I went shopping.  My (then) fiance got teary-eyed when he saw me in that particular dress, so I bought it (yes, I took Darling Husband shopping with me!).  Once my dress got in, I brought it home and kept trying it on and feeling remorseful about it. I felt like a big, white blob!  There were no other family members around to reassure me, so I was majorly second-guessing.  My husband kept reassuring me that it was beautiful.  I hated it up until the moment my alterations were done.  Then I was head-over-heels all over again!!

    Yes, yes I did.  And I wasn’t expecting it either.  It’s only when I saw it on a bee’s blog (she called it dress doubt disorder DDD) that I realized it was pretty common.

    I picked out my dress the first time I went dress shopping back in the fall.  It was totally different from what I had on my “list of favorite dresses”.  When I tried it on, and felt emotional, and I could see myself walking down the aisle to marry Fiance with this dress. I was beyond happy about my choice… for a few months.  Then, watching too many wedding shows, I started to get doubt…what if my dress looks cheap, what if I sweat through it, what if it’s not comfortable and I look awkward all day, etc.  I went through a bunch of on-and-off doubts, until, it actually came in a couple of weeks ago and I tried it on again.  I got the same initial love feeling, “it’s perfect for me” and that was that.  I’m fine now.  Thank goodness because with less than 6 months to go, I have other things that need to get done!

    Yep. I bought my dress pretty early on and I started to get antsy while it was being made. Once it came in and I got to try it on again I remembered why I loved it in the first place 🙂
