I bought my dress a couple weeks ago, and ever since I left the store I’ve been second guessing myself. I went to five different shops, tried on a bazillion (real number, I swear) dresses, and just had such a terrible time. I finally found one that I liked on, and just went with it. As soon as I paid I started thinking I’d made a terrible mistake.
I’ve dreamed of a romantic, rustic, outdoor wedding since I got engaged, and that’s what we have been going with. I just keep thinking that the dress doesn’t fit everything else. Here is a picture of my dress (just the stock photo)…
And a picture of part of my venue (you can see more at http://www.springhillmaine.com)

If you love your dress, it will go! 🙂

Considering that the model in the stock photo looks like she is in some sort of a field/grassy area I would say that your dress would look great at your venue.

I think it’s perfect! It’s ok for the dress to be classier than the surroundings, it’s supposed to be the nicest thing at the wedding 😉
Don’t worry about it, it’s a GORGEOUS dress and I can just imagine how beautiful you will look at that location!

I think my biggest issue is that this is NOT what I had always seen myself wearing.
I realy wanted antique lace w/ little to no sparkly bling… but I just couldn’t find a lace dress that I liked ON me.
I never had the AH-HA moment when I was trying dresses on and I REALLY wanted that, but I guess it isn’t for all of us. Hopefully when I go in for my first fitting I will fall in love with the dress.

I also had major dress remorse when I bought mine so I know how you feel.
I had something different in my head (different style, different fabric, different everything) so I had a major freak out that it also didn’t suit my wedding style the second I walked out after paying for it in full.
However, when I let that go I’ve started to appreciate my dress for what it is – beautiful….Just as your dress is! And I agree that I think it definitely fits your venue!

I know the feeling. My venue is a New England lodge looking place with wood pillars and stone walls. My dress is a poofy ball gown, completed with an up-do and tiara. All I can say from my experience is wear what you want. Whenever somone says something bad about it, remember it is your day, not theirs. You have to like it, not them. By the way, that dress is GORGEOUS

I think that dress would be fine with your venue (as in, I don’t think any of your guests will be thinking, ‘wow, her dress doesn’t work with this venue’) but at the end of the day, wear what you want. If you’re really having doubt about whether the style is for you, then I would keep searching for your dream dress. I’m sure you can find a dress with the elements you love (lace, romantic style) that is also flattering.

I’m not regretting (other than a little doubt about it being too poofy) but I’m also wearing something I never would have thought to even try on.
Honestly, I think it will look romantic and lovely in your setting.

your dress will certainly fit your style! if thats the only reason you are worried – stop!
it’s a lovely dress!
besides, who says you have to confirm – who says a certain dress fits a certain style, you make that rule!

I bought that dress and returned it today. I had major remorse after I bought it. However for your venue I think it would be great! The only reason I returned mine is because my fiance doesn’t like mermaid which he didn’t say until after I bought it. It is a beautiful dress.
