    No, STOP looking! You picked your dress for a reason, it's just a dress & will look great either way : (13 votes)

    Keep looking until you find THE one, who cares about the complications of reselling the first one! : (16 votes)

    I did the same as you  I bought a dress on my first shopping trip and never got to properly try on any other fits and styles.  I intended to, but just never made any appointments to.  I also wanted a slightly more fitted dress than the A-line I got, so I ended up having it altered to be a little tighter though the hips.  At the end of they day, I loved my dress and am glad I didnt spend more time/money on a new one.

    My advice would be to go shopping again. Try on all those dresses you didn’t get a chance to before. If you find something you love and think it’s the one, sell your other dress. But maybe you will find you don’t love the mermaid or other type dresses and already love what you have.

    Do you have a photo?  I’m sure it’s beautiful.  If my nan had bought the dress, my decision would be made – I’d make up my mind to love the dress no matter what.  I’ve gone through the ups and downs of dress regret, too.  But at the end of the day, I know everything will be fine.  I’ve noticed many times on the Bee that brides who are having second thoughts/dress regrets often look better in their initial dress than a second one that has caught their eye.  Try not to stress. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Go shopping again and find your dream dress. If you find it then I’m sure she will understand.

    I bet this looks better on you than you think! It looks like the detail is made well, like the waist ruching is in the right place and the top would make your bust look great!

    I also happen to really like the plain smoothness of the skirt. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Sometimes simple is better, and if it helps, men tend to usually prefer the simpler dresses vs the flashy over the top ones women like.
