I feel like I’m going crazy. I am a real “instant gratification” person, and having to wait 4 months for my dress is killing me. I’m already second guessing it just because I can’t see it in my mind. I look at the pictures everyday, is that normal? I want to just forget about it so I can be surprised and excited when she comes in, but I’m freaking that what if I picked too soon? What if its the wrong color? What if she doesn’t look like I remembered?
I’m sorry, I’m crazy…

OMG I have the same issue!!! To make matters worse a couple of bee’s have pictures of them in the same dress and they look amazing! I am afraid I won’t look as good as they do in their dress lol. I am also afraid the stupid veil I got wont match my dress!

Me too, I’m just over analyzing every bit of it! Will I look too short? Is it too white? Does it have too much bling and not enough lace? Is it too formal and not enough rockstar? Jesus why do we do this to ourselves!!

I look at my pics all the time. Sometimes to see if my accessories will match. I can’t wait to wear it!

The very next day after I ordered my dress, I was already second guessing it! Eek! I constantly look at pictures of my dress and remind myself that this is my dress – no matter what and try not to cheat on it.

OMG, I am so glad you are all doing this as well! Have been looking at my picture almost daily, photoshopping accessories into the dress, adding top parts of me in veil to it…the list goes on. I am constantly second guessing myself about everyhting, but the veil has become a particular focal point – to the point of me bidding on another one on e-bay, just because I think it might match my dress better, even though I haven’t actually seen the first one with the dress yet. Hope I will be going back to normal soon…

it is completely natural to second guess, i just shut my eyes and think back to trying it on and remember how i did not want to take it off! i looked at it daily for about 2-3wks, now it is less frequent 🙂

The dress has been the most difficult decision in my wedding planning. Gosh, I wish dresses were just in stock in our sizes so that we didn’t have to imagine what it would be like after alterations and wonder if it’s the right one, etc. I’m going crazy too and just wanted to let you know that you are not alone. I’m pretty sure lots of brides have 2nd guessed themselves many times.
Gee, I wish I wasn’t one of them! Well anyways, there’s a reason why there are many brides with multiple dresses.
I hope you feel better!

I look at pictures of myself in my dress all the time, but no second guessing, just happiness 🙂 I love it and know I made the best decision, I just look to admire my choice!

I only have a sketch of my dress and i look at it all the time. I am ALWAYS second guessing because i had 2 dresses put into 1 so i dont really know what it will look like!

I am exactly the same way. I just bought my dress and I spend hours looking for pictures of other brides in it to try and visualize how it will look on me. I am second guessing always and driving myself (and everyone else) crazy. Glad to know I am not the only dress-crazed bride around!

well, let me tell ya…I wish if I could be like some of you guys that the more you look at your dress the more you like it…..my big problem is that I have changed my mind thousand times because looking at the dress I want so many times makes me get tired of it (the dress),lol! later, I pick another one and it is the same problem. So,after placing my order, Im not looking at my dress anymore until arrives and when fittings so whe I look at it again after so long will be like the first time I see it

I look at mine every day!
I’m lucky that the sample fit, so I know exactly what it’ll look like. Apart from a slight wobble in the first couple of days, I’ve been totally sure that I love my dress, and that it’s the most beautiful dress.
Like with my Engagement Ring – I know it’s right because if I won the lottery tomorrow I still wouldn’t change it. I bought it back in Feb,and it still gives me butterflies to look at pictures of it. Can’t wait to wear it!!!
