I literally bought my wedding dress TODAY and I too think I’m having regrets already…but I’m not sure either. I don’t know if you’ll love your dress after the fitting, I hope you do (and I hope I love mine too!), but I think you and I have to remember that it’s just one day of the rest of our lives and we’re marrying someone we love, and once we’re all prettied up on the big day we’re going to be so happy that we will just be glowing and because of that we could be wearing paper bags and still look gorgeous!! But since we’re wearing beautiful dresses even though we’re not sure we love them, we’ll look even more gorgeous. I hope that you end up loving your dress and your wedding, goodluck friend!

I would love pictures too.  But I’m sure it looks great on you, which you’ve even admitted it does. The issue is that you are not sure you love it.  I would suggest you trying on the style dress you feel is your dream dress.  Either you will love it, and know the answer, or you will realize it’s not as flattering as you’d hoped and want to stick with what you have.  I had a ton of dress regret with my dress, even though I do love it, and there are things that bother me to this day about it – top was too big, alterations made it seem a bit “funny” to me, and did I buy too soon and miss out on something better.  I have tortured myself off and on but honestly, this is how I am with big decisions (except Darling Husband, thank god!  lol).  I always second guess myself and think “what if”.  Know that whatever decision you make, new dress or old dress, you will love how you look and feel the day you get married.  The day really is so magical.  Sorry for your dilemma and hope you find the right answer.

Oh wow. I think it looks absolutely stunning on you. It is so flattering, and the ruching…just WOW.

That being said, YOU are the one wearing it, so if you don’t love it then yes, I vote look for another pre-owned dress…..you only get to do thi sonce, and if there is a way you can feel like a princess, I think you should take it! Have you tried the WB classifieds?

Honestly, I think it looks so so gorgeous on you. I would not change it!

 I think you can still give it a 50’s/60’s feel with the accessories, wheather it be a birdcage veil or maybe some really dramatic, dainty gloves.

I also really love this veil:

I had dress regret when i first bought my dress, i loved it when i first tried it on, but after buying it i was second guessing,  i stored it at my sisters so i didn’t get to try it on again after the first time.   Well i went to my sisters a couple of weeks ago and tried it on, and i knew then, it was the one.    now i have no doubts.  

 

You look amazing in the dress…. it’s so perfect for you!

From your description, I was expecting a totally different dress.  You look very bridal (and beautiful)!

It is hard to choose just one style for your wedding day when your personality encompasses so much more, but you chose Emily because it is the most like “you.”  I tried on Mori Lee 4808 and it is very pretty.  But based on what you have said about yourself (not your age/figure), I don’t think it would suit you as well as Emily does.  I hope you fall in love with Emily again.

I think you look great!  I think most people get a bit of dress regret here and there.  There were a few different “looks” I thought about for my wedding, and sometimes wish I would have chosen another dress.  I would probably just try to make it more 50s/60s with accessories and makeup.  I think there is a ton of pressure to look and feel like a bride, and to be 100% confident in your dress choice.  It makes us second guess ourselves too much. At this point, it might be more stress than it’s worth for you to try to find another dress… but only you know for sure.
