I wish I could tell you what to do.  I think some level of dress regret is normal.  There is a ton of pressure on brides to find the perfect dress. 

Do you genuinely not like the dress anymore?  Or are you just wondering if there is something better out there?

I would say dress regret is normal..but maybe not to the extent you are feeling it 🙁 Maybe talk to your bridal shop and see if your deposit can be used towards another dress? Is there something specific you don’t like about the dress? maybe you can post a pic and we suggest ways to fix it.

Welcome to my world.  I’m in this exact place right now and am going looking tonight for another dress.  Specifically one I tried on early in my search that I passed up and I don’t even know why.  Well, I think I do know why.  I tried it on at a trunk show but didn’t want to commit right then and there.  Then I find out that the dress was part of the show so I couldn’t try it on again.  Well I found this same dress is in another store and I’m going to try it on tonight and see how I feel about it. 

I wound up buying a dress at DB that is beautiful and everyone loves, but I think I was pressured into buying it because it was being discontinued so it was on a really good sale plus it was pretty.  But it’s really not me at all.  Sure it will be beautiful on the day of the wedding but I just don’t know if it’s the right one.  So tonight I’m going to see how I really feel.

I dont know what your experiencing is dress regret, maybe just doubt?! I feel that way from time to time when I look at my dress! Was I in over my head?  Caught up in the moment? Is it going to look good on me?  So many doubts! But until it gets here and back on your body, in your size, dont doubt! Be confident! Because it might just blow your mind! And I hope it does! Im sure there is a reason you fell in love with the dress in the first place!! Post a pic! We’d ALL love to see im sure! BEST OF LUCK! And I am sorry for all your losses! It must be so hard! ((HUGS))

My mom passed away 2 years ago, 2 days before my sister’s destination wedding, so I know how depressing it can be to plan a wedding without your mom. I loved the dress I’m getting online and i do like it, but I never cried or got that “this is the one” feeling with it. So, then I was second guessing myself. I think that there is always something better I could find, but at some point I just had to stop looking and stressing out. The more dresses I looked at the more confused I became. Do you tend to be very indecisive? I am really bad. And I know for myself that I would just be stressing myself out more to try and sell my dress and look for another one. 

I think it’s hard, too, when you don’t have your mom there to get her opinion. Just try and go with your gut feeling!
