    Same here! Bought my first dress at an off-the-rack pop-up bridal show and just felt like I had to pick SOMETHING, so chose the firat one based on the color and the flower detail. It was my first time dress shopping and I had no idea what to expect. Got it home and really regretted it once I realized how much alterations were going to cost, as that meant I hadn’t gotten a discount after all ๐Ÿ™

    After a month, I decided to go dress shopping again at bridal salons. Went to three small local stores and still couldn’t find a tea length dress or a lace dress (my two favorite styles) in my price range at all. Didn’t see one tea length dress and all lace dresses were $1200 +

    Decided to check out David’s Bridal yesterday and finally got to try on an affordable lace dress AND a tea length dress! decided to go with tea length as it was what I kept imagining all along. Everytime I worry that I won’t feel “bridal” enough, I remind myself how much more comfortable I’ll be at my outdoor ceremony in August in a tea-length dress ๐Ÿ™‚

    Here is the first dress and my final dress

    littletigers:  I absolutely LOVE both of your dresses, but I also love tea length. I tried on what looks like the same dress as your second dress yesterday and unfortunately it was way too long for me (I’m just under 5’3″). I’m going with another tea length instead (fmom DB).

    I definitly had a dress regret moment ! Thank Goodness I was able to put my order on hold and make an appointment to reselect a different dress (which I fell in love with). I’m so excited and can’t wait for it to come in already!
