    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.

    @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.

    Im having dress regret mainly because none of my family or people that I have shown (about 10) like it at all 🙁

    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. Tongue Out
