@JaneRachel:  You look lovely and not like a meringue at all! Seriously, this dress is perfect and so beautiful on you! I haven’t started looking at dresses yet so forgive me if I’m wrong, but if you really hate the dress can’t you just buy another from a local store? I mean there’s more than a month until your wedding so that should be enough for alterations right?

@Carlasgettingmarried:  lol. Not usually. Alterations are months before the wedding. Some places even 6 months is cutting it close.

First of all the dress is gorg, but you already know that right?

So the thing is, no matter what dress you picked you’d probably be feeling some sort of “dress regret.” I feel it a little every time I walk into the store for my fittings. And I feel venue regret every time I pass another venue we looked at and didn’t choose.It doesn’t mean I don’t love my choices, but with so many choices out there how do I know I really picked the right one??

The truth is, you are going to be a beautiful bride no matter what. Enjoy your day, enjoy your dress, and don’t worry about what could have been! You picked the right one and you’re going to have an amazing wedding!

OMG! I wanted to try on the dress so badly, but I could find anywhere in my area that had it. Obviously I love it!!!

The dress looks wonderful on you.  Perhaps you aren’t used to wearing a dress with so much going on, but it’s your wedding day and the dress is supposed to be fancy and different.  I’m sure you’ll look great on your wedding day and that your husband will love it!

I think the dress is perfect! It fits you so well and I love the silhouette. Personally, I like that it has some poof at the bottom too! If you really don’t like the poof, I’m pretty sure the alterations people could take out some of the material. It might not eliminate the poof but could potentially make it smaller. Have you looked into that? Just be careful you don’t change the dress too much because you might realize how much you like it as is 🙂

Hugely not a fan of the bottom. It looks unfinished to me. The rest looks lovely.

The bottom half is really not my style, but it does look good on you.

O girl. Im so sorry you are feeling that way. Dress regret is the worst. I still have it too. BUt out of alll seriousness…. I love your dress. The top is form fitting and wonderful. The bottom just as nice. I love the poof. Maybe thats the princess in me. But you will look beautiful, stunning, romantic, and most of all, Im sure your Fiance will not be able to maintain his composure as you walk down that isle 🙂

Your wedding is in a month! It is the final crunch time and you are just stressing…. and there is no need! You look stunning in the dress. I like the bottom- it is different.

If you are really hung up on the bottom being the focus of attention, I would add a really blingy belt to draw attention to your small waist, or a statement necklace that draws the attention up near to your face.
