My dress is arriving in the middle of August but I’m having some regrets I keep looking at the pictures I have of it and I feel like I coul have gotten something so much better I have also look at how this dress looks on the model online and I don’t like the way it looks on her. Are there any real brides that also have this dress???

You are crazy. That dress is fantastic and you look fantastic.
ETA: I’ll add one thing. Probably the main difference between you and the model is not size but height. I think the dress is flaring out from too low down, because it’s built for someone 5 foot 10. If you can raise the dress so it flares out from higher, like about where your hands are when they’re by your side – that’s probably going to be more flattering and closer to how the dress is supposed to look. (It will be more expensive than just hemming it though.)

Your dress is gorgeous! It fits you so well and once yours is fitted it will look even better! Do you really have dress regrets or more like dress “what-ifs”? I thought I had Dress regrets but it really was just dress what-ifs because my dress just came in and i loved it!
What dont you like? Do you have a dress in mind that you like batter?

Lokie85 : +1
That’s exactly how I felt. I tried on so many dresses and each one was like “yeah, this would work..” and I finally picked one. After that, I felt like I made a mistake. I kept looking at it on the model and wasn’t so sure, but when it came down to it, I loved my dress!
PS – It looks AMAZING on you!!!

clairebeebear : thank you! That is really helpful and I will keep the changes in mind. Here is what the dress looks like on the model. I’m not too fond of how the bottom looks in this picture

Lokie85 : thank you! I think it may be more of this was the 5th dress i tried and I’m wishing I would have kept trying on more now that I have time to think about it. I was in love with this dress when I bought it but seeing the pictures j feel like I could have gotten something better

FWIW, I felt the EXACT same way about my dress. It looked nothing like the model, and I am really glad because I didn’t like it on the model. I ALMOST went back to look at dresses again. I am glad I didn’t because I loved it on the day of. Go through your alterations and fittings, and I bet you love it again too! Mine was an Allure dress to. Don’t worry. You will feel beautiful on your wedding day.

You look stunning. Don’t regret it. As for how it looks on the model, remember that they took a ton of photos of her in that dress and picked only the very best ones, and then Photoshopped the crap out of them. The model photo isn’t real life.

I actually think the bottom looks better on you than it does on the model. You look amazing!

futuremrsroark : it looks beautiful on you! what about it don’t you like? as for the way the bottom looks on the model – they used a petticoat to get that look. that’s not just the dress.

Agree with what PP have said about it looking different on models – I felt the same way about my dress! I was super nervous about the way the modeled looked in it but it all worked about. In other words, it will look like what you tried on!
