The Reem Acra looks so much prettier on you than the model! Gorgeous dress!

I’m sorry, but there is NO WAY IN HELL that a China Pnina could ever look as classy, elegant and wel-made as the dress you got. The dress looks amazing on you, and while I’d say something that flattering would be a bargain at any price, keep in mind there’s nothing you can do about your regret now. You probably aren’t going to be able to get all your money back, and any dress you get will have to be incredibly inexpensive to both be cheaper than what you paid, and to absorb the loss you’ll incur when you (probably) don’t get your money back.And it definitely won’t look like an 8k dress.

Cut out the extra expenses for a couple months, work some extra shifts/find some freelance/whatever, or cut your floral budget. Do what you have to do to make it work, and enjoy the fact that you got an amazing dress for an amazing deal. If you have a Reem Acra, you’re pretty much living the dream. Enjoy it.

I love the Reem Acra on you.  You made the right decision and you got a great deal on the dress and veil.  Congrats

I actually search for a thread with this exact title. I am having the same feelings! I spent $2,450 on my gown and then also bought a $450 gown to do my trash the dress shoot in and I am feeling like I spent too much. 

I went to Kleinfeld’s and ordered a dress from an exclusive designer they only sell there and I think I got caught up in the whole Kleinfeld’s experience. 

I thought I was going to get something sleek, sexy with ruffles on the bottom (what my TTD is) and instead got this huge poofy ballgown. I do love the dress but I’m feeling such remorse about spending that kind of money. My parents were helping to pay and my Mom kept telling me not to worry about it but I’m still freaked out. 🙁
