- Wedding: September 2013
Hi everyone I am new to weddingbee. I joined here because I have no one to talk to about wedding things. Right now I am having a mini freak out. I have read a bunch of posts about dress regret and I have been experiencing it for a while now. I got engaged on July 28th 2012, I randomly went dress shopping with my mom at the end of August and tried on dresses in the styles I liked (fit and flare,lacy tight a-line), but I still had 25 pounds of baby weight to lose and felt uncomfortable in them. Then a consultant brought me a princess ball gown type dress that I would have never picked out myself but I gave it a chance. Well long story short, I bought the dress, it hid my muffin top and sucked in the top half of my belly wonderfully. The bridal shop had to special order the dress in a size eight, when I went to pick it up I had lost the 25 pounds and I put it on and hated it. I want something that will show off my post baby body, something I will feel sexy in. The problem is my mom paid $1,700 for the dress and the bridal shop said it is none returnable or exchangeable. AHHH what am I going to do. I can’t afford to buy a new dress, but selling a wedding dress that has never been worn for half the price would not be okay with my mom. Sorry this post is so long I am just so sad. Has anyone else experienced this? If so what did you do?
