To echo all the PP, I think you look absolutely gorgeous in your dress.  It’s timeless and I don’t think you’ll be regretting it as much as you do today when you look back on your wedding photos 20 years from now.  I say, just be happy that you’re married to the love of your life and that you looked gorgeous on your wedding day. =)

Speaking from a person who had major dress regret, your wedding is over. What good would come from going back to try on another dress? Would you buy it and have a photoshoot? If you did end up liking a mermaid better you’d probably just be more upset. FWIW, your pictures look great and I think what you need to do now is come to terms with what was and stop dwelling on what could have been.

Your dress was Amazing! It looks great on you too! Don’t sweat the small stuff.  You’re married have fun with it. Why not down the road get a different wedding dress of your choice And renew your vows in it If its still a Concern.

If you can’t give up on it, then go try on the dress, buy it, and wear it to your vows renewal next year. Yeah, you need to plan another event. Otherwise, let it go because you can’t redo your wedding. It can only happen and happen the way it happened once.

The dress is such a small part of the overall meaning of what you did that day. Please don’t lose sight of this. You should have been willing to marry him in a burlap sack. I suggest you remember the meaning and feelings you experienced in that dress, because that’s what matters–not how you look from the side.

In 10years time those super tight-needed-a-shoe-horn-to-get-it-on dresses are going to look silly and dated in photos (hey, it happens, it was fashionable at the time) and yours is still going to look very elegant. You can wear a tight dress to any old occasion, you can only look as beautiful as you did on your wedding day

Are you kidding? You look STUNNING!

I wouldn’t try it on, but whatever you decide, you can’t change the past. You look great in that dress and I can’t see the point in going and trying on a dress after you’re married. If you love it, it won’t change the fact that you wore your dress, if it doesn’t look good you’ll probably be happier, but there will always be other dresses that you love. You did look very nice, the dress is beautiful and I wouldn’t have known you had it altered.

you look amazing in your dress!!!  i really wanted a mermaid to begin w/ but ended up with a drop waisted a line.  i noticed many of the mermaids really didnt have a great shape to them…i looked like a long pole, not attractive.  there was one mermaid i was in love with from martina liana, but in the end i went with the enzoani dabra because it had more of a wow factor!  

and like you i doubted my choice after i ordered it because i kept looking at all the gorgeous mermaids on this board and looking at the pic of when i tried on my enzoani.  i totally wished i had gone with the martina, BUT that all changed when my dress actually came in.  in my size my dress is amazing it fits perfectly!!  

i’m also a huge fan of lace and i hate beading!  i think you made the right choice!  plus you can’t really walk in a mermaid!

You looked amazing in your wedding dress.  Don’t regret your choice.  What are you going to do if you try on more dresses and fall in love with one?  You only get married once (hopefully).

don’t do it- what happens if you love it? You will have even more remorse. The only way you should consider this is if you would consider having an additional bridal photoshoot and you would be looking to purchase the dress.
