From someone suffering from her own unique bout of dress regret, I say you’re doing the right thing! Giving your seamstress the chance to get it fitting right is a good decision. You never know, it might be amazing. Plus with all of your accessories added, I’m sure the way you feel IN the dress will change.

You loved it once! It just has to become YOUR dress again.

I had dress regret, so I sold my dress and bought another one that I loved! I would recommend the same thing to anyone, brides are under so much pressure to find “the dress” early to allow time for it to be made, etc, then when you have more time to research and look, other ideas seem better! I’m glad I got a new dress!

@happilyengaged4:  I know the feeling, I’ve been there, with added pressure. Don’t worry, it will look perfect with your makeup done (sometimes, without bridal make up, you tend to look paler with the overpowering bright dress without realizing what’s wrong – we had the problem at my friend’s wedding where I was Maid/Matron of Honor and makeup artist at the same time), with your shoes and accessories.

My dress was 3 sizes too big. And the seamstress managed to fit it. Don’t pressure yourself. There’s a reason why you fell in love with it in the first place and why you chose to wear this exact dress. Try to remember 🙂

A dress that doesn’t fit- will always look really bad!. Give the dressmaker time to make the dress fit you. You will be surprised how much better it will look!. Also, think back to why you choose the ivory?,

I know when I make important decisions, there are usually value reasons behind these decisions. So when I questioned these decisions, I think back on these reasons.

After all in the big rainbow of colours- there is only a few shades between ivory and champagne. I think that I would save my money for the moneymoon!!!
