I settled on a dress because I just wanted to be done with it (not a shopper), and now I have dress regret. I didn’t want to spend a ton, because I have a $1400 Paloma Blanca gown with the tags still on it that I am not wearing ( planning on posting to rehome it a bride with need). I let everyone talk me into this and I settled. It is a beautiful dress, but I am not in love with it. Advice?
I am not sure the link uploaded, so I am posting it below too.

It is a beautiful dress… I would love to wear a dress like that 🙂
Maybe you’re just not the type of person who falls in love with their wedding dress? I think there’s a bit of a cultural pressure to find a dress that makes you feel like it’s “the one” right now, especialy with shows like SYTTD that depict dress shopping as a more emotional experience than it is for many women. I really like my dress, but not that “in love” feeling that some women get. I’m just not that sort of person.
I think you should go with your gut… if you’re okay with just having a dress that simply looks gorgeous than stick with this one. ‘Cause it’s very beautiful and classic. If you feel you’re the sort of woman who willl have that emotional reaction to their dress, then maybe see if you can sell/return this one, and pursue a dress that you do fall in love with. Could you try shopping alone or with friends? Or with your Fi, if you’re not traditional in that way? Or try looking online… that may make the shopping experience a little easier?
Goodluck, whatever you choose 🙂

So, after major agonizing over dress regret, I went shopping for bridesmaid dresses today, and decided to try on dresses. I am so glad I did. I found THE dress. It was everything I wanted, and everything the first dress wasn’t. Vintage feel, all lace, champagne color (I married my husband at the courthouse in a champagne cocktail suit, so it was important to find that color), trumpet silhouette. Perfect,
The first dress

I like your 2nd dress much more than your first. Its always important to trust your instincts.
