    Hey, I voted not to change the dress. And do your best to stop looking. BUT you could always see if the bridal salon would be willing/able to let you make an exchange. Then at least you won’t be buying a 2nd dress.

    What about a mermaid slip with your dress? It would give it that flare at the bottom you are looking for. My dress issues were solved by a mermaid slip (my dress is actually an a-line but it works perfectly. I absolutely adore your dress!!

    I voted to not change your dress – you look fantastic in it, and there is a reason you chose it!  There are hundreds of other beautiful dresses out there, adnwe’d all go crazy if we tried to try them all, but there is a reason this is the ONE for you 🙂

    I think your dress is gorgeous, and if you do go back, try your dress on with a crinoline underneath to give you more of the flare you want on the bottom 🙂

    @bakerella:  I agree 100% about the crinoline. 

    I think you look great in your dress, and I definitely don’t think keeping it would be a mistake. TBH though, I like the style of the other dresses better, and I think you will look good in those too.

    I love you in your dress and I don’t think you will look like the model at all– she is more of a pear and you are an hourglass. I think if you add a slip and work with the alterations team you can match your vision perfectly.

    I also think that if you tried on your dream dresses you would feel better. I think you will see that while they are beautiful, they won’t be so beautiful on you because your shape lends itself to a more fitted dress. I know when I went shopping I ended up with a slim dress because everything else made me look bigger than I was.

    Your dress is great.  A lot of brides pick something that isnt part of their original vision, myself included.  Your feelings are natural.  If it would ease your mind to try on more than do it, but honestly, there will always be another dress and you look absolutely fantastic in yours.

    I love your dress, it looks great!


    And stop looking at dresses! Just like rings, you’ll always find something you like and will question yourself. Tongue Out

    I agree with Bakerella!  Your dress is gorgeous on you, and I think a crinoline to poof out the flare will appease your feelings!

    @BellaDee:  Your dress is absolutely gorgeous in its simplicity but boy do I feel you. I am currently on my dress number two since I could not get over my dress regret. I also purchased WAY too soon and exactly two days after i put down money on it I knew i made a mistake…However EVERYONE has dress regret and I do LOVE your gown (HONEST TO GOD I DO). Don’t change it it is a very classic look

    I agree with pp, your dress looks fantastic on you! For peace of mind, I would go back and try it on. Try the crinoline slip underneath (I know you said you are worried about it looking stiff, but you never know).

    I went through exactly the same thing as you after I bought my dress. I didn’t go back to try it on, I just left it, but as soon as my dress came in and I tried it on in my size I fell in love all over again.

    I hope it all works out for you 🙂 Keep us updated.
