You should post a picture…it’s hard to give feedback without seeing it on you first

@Dawn1234:  Honestly, I don’t think anyone can tell you it doesn’t look amazing on you (from what I can see), but the bottom line is you have to do what will make you happiest and most comfortable.

 

I, too, had dress regret.  I did buy a second dress at David’s Bridal online (with the ability to return it if I didn’t love it), but ultimately, the guilt of buying two dresses and the fact that I didn’t love the replacement dress caused me to return it.  I was left with my original dress and lost over 15 lbs and tried it on again.  All the reasons I originally loved it came back to me and my dress regret is gone. 

It’s not a dress I thought I’d wind up with, but I’m reeeeeally excited to wear it now.  The whole wedding planning and dress process can be overwhelming and personally, at one point, I knew I was obsessing over it, but I didn’t know how NOT to. 

You have a LOT of time.  I’d recommend putting the thought away for a little while.  Wait a couple of months – stop looking for other dress.  Try to picture your day with you in the dress you bought.  In a couple of months, go back, try it on again.  If you hate it even more, then it might be time to try to find a replacement dress.  If it’s not as bad as you remember and you find yourself recalling the reasons you fell in love with it in the first place, you may want to keep it!

I hope you find peace in whatever you choose.  It’s such a happy/exciting time!

I think it’s a gorgeous dress!!! and if you don’t like your arm and chest to be covered up how about removing that part and making it a bolero? or just removing it completly? As for the bottomg i think that’s what make the dress different. Your dress is gorgeous girl. Maybe you are having doubts because your wedding is so far way and you have looked at other dresses in the meantime. Did you like another one more?

I had dress regret and major anxiety after I bought my first dress, but was able to beg and pleed and the store gave me credit towards the purchase of a new/different dress. If you really don’t like the dress see if the store can do this for you? Expecially since it was off the rack? And the 2nd time around make sure to sleep on it. My instant decision was a disaster and the dress I ended up with was total opposite! I LOVE the dress I ended up with.

I think it’s a beautiful dress and I love those sleeves. With that veil, it just looks so perfect…but it is all up to you.

I think it’s pretty. As for the sleeves, take it to another seamstress to get another opinion. And the zipper back can be made into a corset if you really have your heart set on that.

There’s a reason you loved it to begin with and more than likely you will fall in love with it again!

@Dawn1234:  I know how you feel. I bought my dress in September (over a year before my wedding date) and sometimes I feel like I should have tried on more dresses, like I didn’t get the “full experience”. But then I tell myself to STFU, I picked my dress because nothing else topped it and nothing ever would. Stay positive and everything will work out πŸ™‚
