I apologize in advance if anyone else has this dress I don’t mean to offend anyone.
I’m a little sad tonight because I’m starting to hate my dress. I called about ordering the skirt that goes under it for fullness because I didn’t do that when I bought my dress and they didn’t know which fullness I tried on so I went on-line to look at pictures of the dress to try to determine what I needed. In the process I’ve come to despise the dress. I think its just awful and don’t know what I was thinking. It’s way too modern for me and not my style at all. I think I probably just go caught up in the fact that everyone else loved it on me, even strangers coming and going from the salon were giving me compliments. Now, I think I’m stuck with this dress and don’t know what to do. My Maid/Matron of Honor said everyone questions their choice and if it’s really that bad we can have alterations change the skirt (the part I hate the most).
Is this feeling really normal? Do you think alterations could really change it? Or should I try to sell it and get something else if I hate it this much? So confused…

You look beautiful in it! That said, if YOU dont love the dress, get a new one! You need to feel comfortable and happy in the dress on your big day and if this dress is not doing it for you, then you should keep looking. I know what you mean by feeling pressured because of all the people around you loving the dress and complimenting it, this is why I went by myself to try on dresses. I didnt want to be swayed into a dress thats not me! I hope you find something you LOVE!

I agree, you do look stunning in it. But if you really don’t like it, get another one.

My daughter disliked the dress we initially bought. She said she was too rushed.She got another one which I have to agree fits her better. She feels more confident and I wouldn’t want her to feel any other way on her wedding day.
Go for it.

Lots of brides have dress regret. Myself included. In my opinion the dress looks great on you! You have a great figure for the dropped waist dress. It won’t hurt to try the dress with a crinoline underneath to add some fullness to the skirt if that is what is bothering you. If the dress continues to bother you and you have it in the budget, you could try on other dresses. You could also ask the salon if the deposit can be applied to another dress, it never hurts to ask.

I really like the dress, I think the skirt is stunning and the shape looks very flattering on you. I also agree that most brides suffer from dress regret (myself included), but if you’re really HATING it that much and the thought of wearing it literally upsets you, then maybe you should start the process of selling it…

I think it’s stunning! For the record, I had MAJOR dress regret off and on for the first couple months after I ordered my dress (to the point where I couldn’t sleep). I finally settled down. It came in last week and I’m happy I stuck with it! Just look at the “related topics” at the bottom of your post…. Many bees have had this feeling!!

You look awesome in that dress. You could try to sell it and get another one but you would probably lose some money on it, if you are able to sell it at all. I have a 2nd dress I bought for a reception dress at a really good deal that I am now trying to get rid of and I am not having any luck selling it. So consider it a plus if you could. That said, if you really want something different go for it, but that one is really beautiful.

Did you have a vision of how you want to look on your wedding day? I knew I loved lace. I tried on different styles and fabrics but finally settled on a lace dress that felt like me and fit my vision

I’ve been having dress regret too, but then I go back and look at pictures of my dress and I know it really is the one for me. Of course I still have a year before the wedding…
and your dress looks absolutely stunning on you.

Everyone does question their choice, how could they not? You get one wedding dress. I adore your dress, it looks spectacular on you. The skirt on your dress does not strike me as being the modern part of your dress. The drop waist, ruching, bling, and sweetheart neckline part does.
Honestly, I think you should be very happy and comfortable in whatever dress you wear on your wedding day because that is important! But don’t make a decision on this too quickly and don’t do it without talking to a seamstress about what alterations they could make for you. The veil/accessories/bustle will make a big difference, too.
I think it’s easy to forget that you’re not picking your ideal dress for you wedding, too. You’re sort of… picking from what is available. A lot of those dresses are crazy and just don’t work well on each person that tries them on. I think yours looks fab on you.
I apologize for being rude, but you look like a short girl. I don’t know how well a different skirt would work on you.

After hearing that a lot of people really do question their dress choice and talking with my Maid/Matron of Honor some more I think I’m going to wait until it comes in and go try it on with all my accessories and my hair and makeup done. Maybe seeing the whole picture will help me remember why I fell in love with the dress in the first place. I really don’t want to have to look for a new dress so I’m hoping I feel better after putting it on again.
