I think more than half of the bees here have had dress regrets, whether they have acted on them or not. Your daughter is lucky you agree with her! They’re both lovely, but that Amy Michelson is stunning! Honestly, it is just about everything I am looking for in a dress except price (and straps) haha.

I’m with Amaryllis! I second guess my dress all the time. It was super cheap but I can’t ask my mom to buy another one. She might go ballistic. In the end I feel great in the dress I have and it won’t really matter. I really love your daughter’s new dress though!!

They are both beautiful dresses! I know a ton of other gals here who have been 2,3,4 dress brides! And most of us who stick with our one get cold feet occassionally I think. She will definitely be happy with those fears settled.

Well, I think it is a bit crazy. If you buy a dress, you should know it’s “the one” and stop looking at that point. Sounds like the first one was an impulse buy, or is this one?? But I would definitely suggest selling one of them to get some cash back.

I love it!  what does the other dress look like? so we can compare?

I agree after u find the dress that is the one you should not try on any more that will set u up for failure and more money spending!

@brittanymarie: No need to be so harsh and judgmental.  Like Amaryllis said, it seems like the majority of bees have had dress regret!  Unfortunately, preferences change and beautiful new dresses emerge after soon-to-be-brides make their purchases, and it can be easy to become convinced that the person you wanted to feel like on your wedding day would be better suited to a different dress after the deposit has been paid, or even after you’ve taken your dress home and gotten alterations!  It happens.  All I know is, thank goodness my engagement is so long.  I was in love with a gorgeous dress for a solid eight months and was certain from the moment I laid eyes on it that it was the one.  But this month, just when I was about to buy it, I began to realize that I wasn’t in love anymore, and now I’m taking on the task of getting one custom-designed just so I’m certain my dress is everything I want!  Outside of this scenario, it’s hard to believe there is one, and only one–“the” dress–for a bride.  After all, she didn’t hand-pick every last detail so it’s perfectly plausible that other dresses on the market will delight her just as much.  Noteveryone has the kind of time, or is willing to spend as much on their dress as it costs for a custom design.  So the almost-inevitable happens.  The first dress certainly needn’t have been an impulse buy for dress regret to occur.  Looks like things turned out well for this bride, and what they choose to do with the two dresses is really their decision. 

PS: Just hope everyone recognizes that this thread is three months old!
