I’m sorry! Have you tried Craigslist or other sites of the like? Maybe Ebay?

This is a bad situation to be, and I’m sorry you’re going through this! You may have already thought about this, but what do you not like about the dress you have? The neckline, or detail, or fit? There may be some things you can change via alterations like adding/taking away straps and beading, etc. And I think once it truly fits you, you may feel different. Being in a dress that’s too big will do nothing for your figure and I can understand why you don’t like it.

Maybe post a pic of your dress and say what you don’t like?

Does the store that you originally tried it on at still have it?  Maybe if you tried it on again in a size that fits you better you would see why you originally wanted it.  Also you could try it on with a veil and everything so you could get the complete picture.  I’m sorry you are so stressed.

coming from a bride who had serious dress regret just hang in there – if you want to continue to try and sell it go for it but I bought my dress 5 months before my wedding – i was torn between my dress and a Mori Lee that was about 150 bucks cheaper. i bought my dress..i really loved it in the store but when i got home and had it in my hands i had serious second thoughts – i couldnt get the other dress out of my head! i cried to Darling Husband and my sister several times about my dress, i mean i liked it enough that i bought it but then i found the bee and started to really get into wedding planning and i saw all these beautiful dresses and that made my fears worse. selling it or purchasing another wasnt an option for me, i just didnt have the time so i delt with the fact that i would have to wear this dress.  its impossible to get the full look when you are standing in front of a mirror with your hair in a ponytail and a sad look on your face because you dont like the dress..fast fowrad to my wedding day – i could not be happier with the dress i picked-i put it on and seriously started to tear up – (never thought i would be one of those girls because no dress i tried on moved me) maybe it was the excitedment of the day or that my hair and makeup looked awesome but i loved my dress and if i had to choose again i would probably pick the same dress.
