    The thing that stands out to me most is that ALL the previous posters look GORGEOUS in their new dresses. BEAMING! I think that’s the look you are supposed to have when you find YOUR dress!

    @ifheaven:  The first dress is Dominica (Blue by Enzoani). It’s actually a fit and flare/trumpet (it looks like a mermaid in the photo)

    @sweetpeony:  Me also! Like I said, I had overlooked that dress thinking it might look strange on me. But now I’m thinking it might not! You really rocked that dress and it was very gorgeous!

    @cherryblossomlove:  OMG I love the second one on you – you defintely made the right choice.  I read your other post and you said in that that you are petite in height – but that dress makes you look tall. 

    P.S. The dark hair color is also fantastic on you and really suits the dress as well.

    @sweetpeony:  That second dress is so gorgeous, and I love the way the jacket frames your beautiful face and chest – so classy and flattering. I am a plus size bride too and that outfit is just inspirational, showing how good someone can look (and hell, I love that your facial expression says that you KNOW how good you look LOL).

    @happybbbeee:  Definitely the right choice. The second one really flatters your features and skin tone, and you look so happy in it!

    @clairebbbear:  Thank you so much! I was so worried that i was going to feel frumpy. A lot of my family members said that i should not wear the bolero because it made me look bigger. I am glad i decided to ignore their comments. I felt so beautiful and confident in how i looked. Thank you so much for your kind words! Have you gone dress shopping yet?

    @sweetpeony:  No, and I’m not sure if I’m going to since I’m not looking for a typical bridal dress. I want a blue or red dress so I’ll either be buying an evening or bridesmaids dress online, or (most likely) having something made by a dressmaker. But your dress makes me want to go shopping all of a sudden LOL.

    The only thing different about my dress was the first was Taffeta with beading/crystals. The second is lace with a belt. Same designer, same sillouettte. Below are pictures.

    I’m a newbee and I love these boards! I’ve been lurking since I got engaged and have felt so comforted by reading others brides’ experiences:)

    Totally relate, I had dress regret too and I’m not a wedding-y kind of gal! I bought my first dress right after I got engaged. It was an impulse purchase and I should’ve tried on more dresses. The dress was gorgeous but after I showed my mom, she really didn’t think it flattered me. I realized she was right and I sold it. I initially felt guilty because I lost some money from changing my mind.

    After more searching, I eventually found a great tiered dress and put a deposit on it. The dress was nice but it was heavy and stiff. It was my second choice–I’d actually seen a beautiful dress in that store but it was on hold for another bride. Deep down, I wanted a more flowy and romantic dress but I felt guilty about being indecisive so I just told myself to stop thinking about other dresses. 

    A week later when I went back to pay the balance of my second dress, I saw my first choice still there. The owner said the other bride changed her mind! The moment I tried it on, I had no doubts. I felt gorgeous–something I didn’t feel when wearing the other two. Thankfully, the owner let me transfer the deposit from the other dress to my current dress. 

    I’m so glad I took my time to try on many more dresses because I found a dress I truly love. If I had any advice, it’d be to sleep on it for at least 1 night before putting any money down, don’t feel pressured by anyone to buy a dress you don’t love, and listen to your heart!!!

    THE DRESSES

    First dress (mom didn’t like this, didn’t like the high neckline for me)

     

    Second dress (liked it but not what I envisioned for myself, felt heavy)

     

    Third dress, the one I will be wearing and truly love!
