I think dress regret is very common. I had major dress regret and changed out the skirt on my dress. It wasn’t my ideal dress ony wedding day, but it still looked nice. Is there any alterations you can make to this dress to make you love it more? And do you have a picture? That might help

Bee, I can relate. I have a pretty long surgical scar that runs straight down my back. I’ve had it for so long that I’m comfortable in my skin, but I would be prettt hurt if someone commented on it while dress shopping. I can happily say my scar is visible in my dress and I’m not ashamed. You should get a dress you love and embrace who you are — you can’t change it!

rosieposie3 :  If  you want to change your dress because you think you might find another dress that you’ll really love, go ahead. But please, don’t base your decision on whether your scar is visible or not. Padma Lakshmi, an actress and model, comes to mind. She has a large scar on her arm, and I dare anyone to say she’s not a beautiful woman, scar and all.

rosieposie3 :  For what its worth, I think that dress is gorgeous on you. But sorry to hear you are feeling insecure. It’s not fair for anyone to make you feel that way when dress shopping!!

Looking at this, I’m pretty sure they could remove the illusion back and mesh front and have it strapless, as this was offered to me an an option a few times dress shopping when I didn’t like the back etc, I don’t know if you’d prefer it strapless? The illusion is lovely as well πŸ™‚

Do whatever must be done for you to feel amazing on your day.

First of all, how freakin rude of anyone to say something like that about your scar. Don’t let people like that deter you from things you want. I went through dress regret for sure. I put a 50% deposit on one, cancelled it, lost the deposit (not cheap either, like $800), but it really didn’t feel right. I purchased another dress, and even then felt like a different one could have been better. I liked my dress, I never had a “moment” feeling like any of them was THE ONE, so it wasn’t necessarily about that. I have some body image issues, so it was more of which one I felt more comfortable in. You choose for YOU (and maybe your husband too haha), no one else.

The dress is beautiful on you. But I can understand how you might feel it isn’t what you dreamed of. Maybe they can make it strapless and add something under to make it flare out a little more? I would see what they quote you on alterations asap and decide if that will give you what you want out of the dress, or if you should cut your losses and try to find a new one. No matter what you decide, you will be gorgeous on your wedding day. Good luck to you!

I think it’s a gorgeous dress, but if it’s not what you want, I’d suggest you keep looking. Have you contacted the shop to see if they’ll let you choose something else? Maybe they’d make some deal with you to give you part if your deposit back if you promise to order your new dress from them? You can always try selling your dress 2nd hand and recoup some money – especially if it’s never been worn / altered. 

The person who mentioned your scar really made a huge mistake. Unless it’s a brand new scar that’s still all red and swollen, it’s not likely to be noticed much on the wedding day anyway. As well, if you don’t want it showing, there are cover-up make-up brands made to cover scars, birthmarks, and tattoos. Get the dress you want and worry about your scar later.

The dress is actually stunning on you. I love the illusion back and neckline. Perhaps wait until it comes in…try it in your size and take it from there. You may love it more when it’s fit to you πŸ™‚
