I don’t really see anything good in going to try it on because your wedding is already over.  If you do love it, then you’ll just be more upset!  I am sure that you were beautiful and if your husband said that you were exactly how he envisioned you, then I think you have no worries!  🙂

I would just take a deep breath and try to let it go. You could buy a dress in a similar style (though short, probably!) and wear it for another big family event. Trying it on now is not going to help you in any productive way unless you hate the dress. 

I’m sorry you’re feeling this way. I’m sure you looked amazing on your wedding day!

I’m sure you looked beautiful!

As there is no rush now, the wedding is over, give it some time and think about whether it really matters to you to try on another dress. After several months, if you are still thinking about this, think about what benefits you could gain from doing so. The only thing I can think of, if you can afford it, is that you could buy that one as well, and get some shots with you in the new dress and keep those as part of your wedding album. Your husband may have a difficult time understanding this, as it would be rather unusual, but you know him best, and he may actually be very supportive if it’s what would really make you happy.

But a big part of me is saying… are you being too perfectionist about the dress? You got married, you have your new husband and your whole life ahead of you…why look back at an item of clothing, rather than forward, at your whole life? What’s the next big step you’re excited to take? Maybe you’re just still caught up in thoughts about the wedding because it was so recent. In a few more months you may realize you aren’t interested in thinking about wedding dresses anymore.

I’d say go and try on a mermaid because it will likely put you at ease that you made the right choice.

Also, I’ve noticed you are in Belgium. In many parts of Europe mermaids are seen as quite tacky, is it not the same in Belgium? I’m quite sure your Fresno made a much better impression on your guests than any mermaid could have.

Hey ..post a pic and we’ll no doubt give you our honest opinion. I have a feeling we will love your dress. You chose a classic/timeless shape – the mermaid would look dated pretty quickly i think.

Go try the other one on if you want, but WOOOW you look AMAZING from all sides!  That dress is stunning and you make that dress!  I think that you have nothing to regret as you are just stunning.

You look beautiful and classy in your dress and it makes your waist look soo tiny! You should not have any regrets – your dress is perfect!

Your dress looks amazing.  I don’t see any point in going to put on the other one, especially since your wedding already passed!

Girl, you look like a wedding dress ad- everything about those pictures is perfect!  Accept that you looked beautiful on your wedding day, and then go buy a tight (not wedding) dress and take your husband out on a date.
