@Kld9284:  I was in the exact same situation except I was with brother’s Fiance (her and I aren’t that close at all and she was only with me cause she was shopping for her dress too). I didn’t expect to find anything but the good deals were overwhelming. That’s what got me. Everywhere I looked all the dresses were not under 1K when my budget was $800. The first dress I purchased was $453 before taxes. I liked the way my first dress fit. I had JUST had a baby so none of the other dresses I previously tried on fit me well. I put a deposit on the dress. When I came back with my mom to show her and try on the dress again, I didn’t like her reaction to it which made me second guess the dress and eventually take another look at it. I hated the dress. I knew I was going to have an outdoor wedding. Well this dress was more appropriate for a church wedding (very long heavily beaded cathedral train). I actually went thru dress regret twice so I understand how you feel very well. It’s upsetting but don’t worry you still have time to find the right one. I suggest bring very trusted ppl with you if you can. When I purchased THE ONE I was with my mom, her sister (my aunt) my Maid/Matron of Honor and Bridesmaid or Best Man (my cousins and my aunt’s 2 daughters). If it wasn’t for my Maid/Matron of Honor, I would have walked away with the wrong dress AGAIN cause my mom started tearing up at the 2nd dress I tried on (I didn’t too much care for it, I gave it an 8 she gave it a 10). My Maid/Matron of Honor helped keep me grounded and true to myself and I got the right one!
