I like your second dress better, too!! Surprised 

This happened to me also.  I went to a Maggie Sottero Trunk Show and ended up buying Cambria – the sample was in Pearl.  I absolutely loved the fit and it went with my wedding theme & venue.  I ordered Diamond White without seeing it in person.   I started getting a nagging feeling that I should have bought SaBelle-which I had tried on the previous day at another salon.  Long story short, even though over a month had passed since I had placed my order the salon checked on her computer to see if the dress had been cut, which it showed it hadn’t.  The owner of the salon said she was 99% sure it could be cancelled.  She was able to cancel it and applied my deposit to my SaBelle.  I know I was lucky that I worked with an honest store owner–she could have easily lied that it had been cut and then could have told me I would lose my deposit or even have to pay for the first dress in full – I am SO glad I spoke up and feel much better about my second choice!!  Good luck to you!

I started to change my mind about my dress after seeing all those stupid dress shows on TLC, but I’m going to “make it my own” and change it up a little bit. I know I’ll still be happy w/ it, but.. there will ALWAYS be a dress you like more than the one you eneded up with. I guess I’m just trying to think of it that way!

I totally know how you feel how about this.  I got my dress the night after the proposal (over a year before the wedding).  It was 3rd dress-out of the 24… yes I said it, 24 dresses that I tried on.  I drove the boutique crazy.  But I had to be sure.

Even after all that I still got a little anxious.  So what did I do?  My wedding planner was amazing and even had me go in and talk to my dress.  Try it on, play in it.  Change my veil…. my shoes… anything I wanted to be sure that it was the one.

All is said and done and I look back on the wedding pics and I’m still in love with my dress.  So much so that once one of my friends gets married in April we are all (6 of us former brides) going out in them for a night on the town photoshoot!  Awesome ha?  I can’t wait to wear it again.

Congrats on falling in love with your dress again.  I’m sure you will be stunning in it.

I like the second dress much better.  Try calling the store.  I have friends who have transferred their deposits to other dresses.
