i think dress regret is normal, so try not to stress too much.  If you are convinced its not the dress for you, I would call the salon without telling your parents and see if there’s any way you could put your money towards another dress.  I wouldnt mention it unless it’s a possibility.  But remember, there’s a reason you chose the dress in the first place!

Its a big commitment and I think dress regret is normal. Go back to the store and try the sample back on, put on a veil and possibly some jewelry and see how you would look “bridal”. It may change your mind about your dress and make you remember why I purchased it to begin with.

I think it’s totally normal.  Even though in the big scheme of things it’s not that big of a deal, to a girl it’s a big commitment.  Any big commitment is scary.  Just know there was a reason you fell in love with it and that you’ll be totally beautiful on your big day.  I went through the same thing, I bought a dress that wasn’t what I originally had in mind, then when I got home I kept seeing the style I thought I’d get in pictures online.  I thought I had made a mistake until I remembered how much I disliked those in person and how I fell in love with the one I picked.  Just go with your first instinct, ladies always overthink everthing. 🙂

It’s normal to feel a little sad after such a big decision. Even if you love your dress, you just closed the door on all those other choices. Try not to worry about it. You love your dress and that is what’s important.

I felt exactly the same way after getting my dress! I think we build up “THE DRESS” way too much. There’s so much pressure to fall in love with it, to “know”, cry, blah blah freakin blah. I almost returned mine too, and felt bad because family loved it.

The dress is important but not THE most important thing about your wedding. Sit on it for a while. I bet you will learn to love it!!
