Did you get any pictures because there has to be a reason you bought it in the first place? If you felt pressured I’d say go ahead and look around, but if you made the decision on your own then I would wait for it to come in. I was watching SYTTD tonight and the girl came in for a fitting all worried about if she liked her dress or not, but as soon as she got it on she fell back in love.

I’ve bought two dresses so far and both look nice on me and I feel bridal, but I don’t feel like they are “it.” I keep thinking about another dress that I love, but haven’t been able to even try on… Maybe I’m not the best to give advice on this 🙂

@countrybride2be:

Ah don’t worry, by the looks of other posts, you’re not on your own. You obviously loved it to have bought it, would it be worth going to the bridal shop and trying it on again so you can get that feeling? I think your anxiety is stemming from it’s not the dress that you imagined yourself to wear, which again happens alot. I fell in love with the first dress I tried on but am having doubts because it’s not what I wanted. Have you got a picture fo yourself in it? I’m sure you look beautiful in it.

I would agree! I compromised a little on my dress as well. I love love love lace and wanted an all lace dress but my mom and my fiance both hate all lace dresses (he didn’t see my dresses but he’s commented over my shoulder a few times while I was looking at dresses). So eventually I got a dress that was only half lace (Enzoani Casablanca) and everytime I seem images of all lace dresses I feel a HUGE sense of regret but then I realize that I will look beautiful and if it will make two people (who are really important to me) a little bit happier than its def worth it!

So I agree.. you should try to remember why you picked that dress and figure out if those reasons are still true. The truth is, there are a lot of decisions to make and you will drive yourself crazy if you keep second guessing yourself.

I just looked it up, and I think I can see why you picked it (I’m a ballgown girl, myself). The dress isn’t a ballgown, but it has a really full skirt for a mermaid, and I’m guessing that those darts on the bodice and the dropped waist are super flattering on you. It looks like a couture gown, and it’s just gorgeous.

I would go to the shop you bought it at and try it on again. I think you’ll remember why you thought it was the one :).

@countrybride2be: Do you have a picture of the other, ballgown-style dress that you also love?

I don’t like pick ups, but I remember seeing that Piccione dress and thinking how beautiful it is. I would go try it on again and see how you feel.
