I am having a dilemma! I looked at hundreds of dresses online and visited 4 stores, tried on 8 dresses and chose this one. I went a coupe of weeks ago and just wanted to finally get a dress and stop looking. I looove how the top fits and am adding a belt to add sparkle, but now I’m not sure if I like the bottom part. I already charged it! Sometimes I feel I love it, sometimes I get scared that I don’t know if i LOVE it.
Has anybody else felt like this?

Welcome to the Hive! I think you made a wonderful choice and I think the bottom is beautiful and so unique.

I think your dress is stunning! I love the unique-ness of the bottom as well.
I had some second thoughts about my dress because it was SO different then what I thought I wanted when I started dress shopping.
However, when the dress came in and the wedding day came, I loved it again and knew I had made the right decision.
I never had a “this is the dress” moment, but went back and forth between two dresses several times (and got several opinions) before deciding.
I think it’s only natural with a purchase so large that you will be wearing on such an important day of your life to think about it a lot and possibly second guess your choice.

Thank you! I’m glad I found this site! Has so much advice!!
I said “yes” because I wanted something different and something that made me feel my age 23 y.o. and I was so excited! but now I’m so nervous about it. I’m also planning on having it altered to a sweetheart neckline (if I don’t change my mind!)
Thanks for the welcome!!

I have this feeling as well, mostly because:
i) my dress is possibly too plain?
ii) it’s a mermaid and I’m afraid I’ll look fat and short in it
iii) my ‘audience’ (guests) are the sort who would prefer A-line or ball gowns
iv) my SO told me he hates mermaids
I do like my dress and like you, I’m not sure I LOVE it but I must say that I did have a feeling that it was the right one (no tears etc., just like yes, this is it.).
I’m sure once you put it on again, you’ll understand why you chose it in the first place:)
P/S: I think your dress is very pretty!

@redband: My mom did not approve of this dress when she and my sisters went with me, but I loved it at the moment. My dad I think almost hated it when I showed him the picture because like your family, his choice would be an A-line or ballgown. Maybe that’s why I’m having seconds thouths also.
P.S. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a dress that is too plain. (Even though I haven’t seen the dress) Im’ sure once you wear it with your hair, make up and jewelry it will look ELEGANT and STUNNING and that’s great that you are going for what YOU want and not what everyone else wants!
@Bellabell: No, I’m not a chinese company. I got it at a bridal salon, it’s Tera Keely. Why do you ask? Oooh I did google this dress when I got home and found it for A WHOLE lot less from China, but definitely did not feel comfortable ordering it that way or at any website.
