@goingtotherooftopoflove:  +1 to the before and after threads. I had major dress regret but stuck with my original and it was the best decision ever. I loved my dress again and it was perfect for me and my venue!

I ordered my dress, got home, and FREAKED that maybe I had picked the wrong dress.

I got to my first fitting, and loved it more than ever! The bridal salon ended up remembering me as “That girl who loved her dress more than any other bride, ever.” (I’m a little enthusiastic.)

@goingtotherooftopoflove:  Thanks for this! Since joining the Bee my vision of my dream dress (which I’ve already bought) has been changed as I’ve probably been oversaturated here and regret has been nagging at me ‘if only I’d waited…’but I’m sticking with it and I hope it’s the right choice!!

I saw that episode! How could she not notice that really distinctive one shoulder strap with the big flower?

Thanks for this! I don’t have dress regret per se, but since I had to try on dresses for the first time and make a decision in the same day, I was really overwhelmed and had a hard time feeling confident in my pick. I still kind of feel like there might be a style out there that I would have put on and said THIS IS IT, because I never really got to try anything like what I pictured in my head. But when I tried on my dress, I could feel my face light up – it was just so fun, and totally perfect for me. Just have to take deep breaths and remember that!

Going to go check out the before and after boards now. I didn’t even know that existed!

@goingtotherooftopoflove:  OHMYGAWD I CANNOT THANK YOU ENOUGH FOR POSTING THIS! I think I got a whopping 3 hours of sleep last night because I had major dress regret.  My dress was pulled from the closet last night so I could at least try it on again – I had to hold it up of course, needs alterations still and I certainly can’t lace up a corset back by myself.  I feel a bit better but there’s a lace mermaid on the Bee that had me second guessing myself.  I’m telling myself alterations will fix my doubts but I don’t need to, and shouldn’t, start them for several months yet which is part of the worry.

@goingtotherooftopoflove:  I was having dress regret after buying my dress two months earlier.  When parents came to visit they insisted on seeing my dress.  I reluctantly got it out of storage and tried it on.  It was love at first sight all over again! This time I made my dad take a bunch of pics with his really good camera that way anytime I start to have regret I can look at them (instead of the really bad pics taken on my cell phone).  Now I can’t wait to put it on again!

For me the easiest way to combat dress regret is to have a bunch of good photos handy to look at.  What really killed my excitement over my dress was looking at the not so good photos.
