I have found my dress. My wedding however, isn’t until 2014 (October to be exact). I want to hear from all the Bees who’ve already married or bought their dress and hear their experience. Please answer the poll!

I voted Other.
I regretted the dress I bought from Etsy because it didn’t fit perfectly when it arrived (despite making sure the measurments were exact). I tried to sell it (it was even featured on the main page here on WB!), but no one wanted it.
Since then have grown to love it more and I realized it just needs a little alteration and it’ll fit me like a dream. 🙂

My wedding is December 2012, I found my dress July 2011. Lots of people said it was too early and I’d change my mind so I didn’t buy it and kept looking for fun, in Dec 2011 I bought that same dress – still to this day I love it and I try to find one I like better and I cannot. I love it so so much and plan to wear it after the wedding to clean the house and dance around, hahaha.

The dress I really wanted cost way too much money and I went fo a replica and it turned out horribly! I ended up getting a completely different style of dress that I got NWT off eBay.

I got caught up in the beauty of the dress and didn’t realize that it was alittle too much for my venue. I should have gone with something more practical.

I knew when I found the dress, but I didn’t buy it right away to be sure. I tried on other dresses and hoped it would still be there… That solidified my decision.

I have lots of dress regret, my wedding is this Decemebr and I purchased in September. I feel like I purchased to early, I didn’t look around enough, I didn’t bring enough people tbetide other opinions, only Maid/Matron of Honor. I am not excited about my dress at all but I have just accepted it.

- Wedding: July 2012 - Baltimore Museum of Industry
@canadianplum: ha! Me, too! I’ve had to store it at Mom’s (I have a cat and the dress has feathers, plus I don’t want Fiance to see it)- I’m going to want to wear it ALL the time after the wedding.
@Missloveknot: that dress is gorgeous!!

I haven’t bought mine yet but I have changed my mind a lot since I started shopping. The key is definitely to stop looking! Id even suggest stop reading the dress boards because that is where lots of my indecisiveness came from!

I had a teeny bit of regret- but only because I lost a fair chunk of weight, and dresses that would have looked average on me before would have been options at the end of my weight loss.
I still loved and rocked my dress. I ordered it 2 sizes to small, despite being told i was crazy at the time!

While I still think it looked okay, I only tried on 3 dresses before I bought mine. I really wished I had looked around more because I discovered lots of things I liked better. But I couldn’t really justify buying a new dress, especially since from start of my ceremony to when everyone left the reception was like 2.5 hours.

I tried on many many styles of dress and end up purchasing 3 gowns. I think I mainly had dress regret due to my indecisiveness and the fact that I was trying to figure out exactly how I wanted to look at my wedding and was not absolutely sure. I started off wanting lace, because that is what I love but ended up purchasing first a blinged out ballgown (I felt like a princess) and then a tulle dropped waist ballgown with lace bodice (getting closer) and ended up with a lace fit and flare gown which I love! Simple and elegant is more my style. It just took me a few dresses to figure it out.
