So in the beginning planning stages I was super excited and went out and made a bunch of decisions on things for the wedding, but now that my choices have had time to sink in I am second guessing or regretting almost everything! 🙁 I fell inlove with a dress online but no stores in my area had a sample for me to try on so I ended up buying another dress which at the time I loved but now I am very unsure and can’t stop looking at the picture of the one I never got to try on..I paid $2000 for my dress so its too late to change my mind anyways but I cant help looking at the other one.
I had a fight with the bridesmaids about what dress I wanted them to wear and in the end I gave in and let them choose the dress but honestly I hate the dress..it is very plain and boring and I hate the color! I wanted a deep coral and the dress they chose is a light coral..more towards peach even and it just screws up my whole vision!
This is really just a rant because nothing can be done to change these things now but I just wish I had stood my ground and not made so many decisions in the heat of the moment 🙁

@MapleCreekBride: I second guessed almost all my decisions too, but you have to learn to just move on. I’m sure your dress is beautiful, so stop looking at the other picture. And as far as the bridesmaid dresses go, just let that one go. In my opinion, its more important to have happy bridesmaids than to fight over a dress. It seems like one of those big decisions while planning but on the day of my wedding the BM’s could have been naked and I wouldnt have even noticed. My head was spinning all day. The pictures will look perfect and your vision won’t be ruined.

@Bostongrl25: Thanks! Im sure you are right..maybe once they come in and I can see the color in person I will feel better…and the same will probably go for my dress..when I put it on again I will remember why I chose it…I hope

@Bostongrl25: She’s right!
I had a period of maybe 2-3 months where I was questioning everything. Was the dress okay? Did we pick the right colors? Maybe the invitations should have looked X instead. What was I thinking about the bridesmaid dresses? It’s human nature to question things for a day that has so much emotion and exciting packed into it.
Don’t go backwards. Play the hand you have right now. Worrying or trying to change things will just stress you out.
As for the dresses– lighter and darker variations on a single color seem to be a growing trend. Maybe find a sash and necklaces several shades darker than the dress to bring in the darker color. It’s good to give in on some things, and don’t drive yourself crazy with “what-ifs” you could play that game forever.

Try to remember that most dresses aren’t as beautiful or as ugly in person as they appear in model photos mean to sell the dress.

@MapleCreekBride: I definitely know how you feel. I posted about Bridesmaid or Best Man Dress Regret earlier today… I wish someone would just come and make all my decisions and they would magically be within my budget!!! haha…

I started second guessing all of my ideas at the 6-7 month mark…which is exactly where you are right now. Trust your original feelings.
