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!

wow! I’m suprised to see this post come up again. Here’s what happened. And I think this happens to alot of brides. She got engaged in the fall and decided to get married in May. she started a new job, I started a new job! we live 3 hours apart and with christmas and our jobs and family things, we couldn’t go dress shopping february. When we did go, the consultant said when is your wedding? when we said may…. she said…. Of this Year????? so right away the pressure was on to pick a dress and order it. so we only went to the one store without really searching out where else we could go. Long story short, we signed on the dotted line and the dress was ours. We both really thought it was pretty. but because we made such a quick decision, when it came in, she had completely changed her mind about what style of dress she really wanted. so the moral of the story is. when shopping for a dress, it is easy to “fall in Love with a gown and feel beautiful” but don’t be pressured. step back, sleep on it and if possible take pictures!!!! go home and look at them. ( this really iritates me about the wedding dress industry, not allowing pictures until you have purchased the dress. really????? ) Try on more dresses and make sure that you are sure!!!! as a mom, it is hard to hear that your daughter is not as happy with her dress! overindulgent yes. we learned our lesson. She also helped pay for the second dress. But I don’t think that we are alone! look at all the dresses on preowned wedding dresses web site! that’s why there are some great deals to be had on those sites! How many of you have bought something you thought you loved, only to get it home and discover that maybe it wasn’t what really worked for you. unfortunately there is no return policy for wedding gowns! It is a major purchase with no room for error! By the way, here is the first dress, which is still beautiful! Try not to juge and never say never!
this gown is for sale on preownedweddingdresses.com for about half of what we paid for it!
