Very elegant. It’s funny how life goes sometimes, isn’t it? It’s good to keep an open mind. If you love it, then go for it. Great price too!

There are a lot of threads on here where brides mention how surprised they were by the gowns they fell in love with. I think it’s pretty common to go in with an idea about a certain silhouette/feature/fabric, etc., and then discover that actually you look really good in a style you never even though of before.

Try on other dresses before you buy this one. I’m sure it’s gorgeous, but the #1 way to avoid dress regret is to try on a wide range of dresses. I had glimmers of regret, but the one thing that I knew was that I tried on a lot of dresses and none of the others felt like “me”.

If you love it, then go for it!  Lots of brides fall in love with something unexpected.  (See the poll I put up last week!)

Don’t rush into anything! I’m a relaxed bride too and haven’t stressed about anything … until

I couldn’t get excited about dress shopping so bought a great dress over the internet, not traditional at all and it was a bargain at £350. Then about 6 months later, I started feeling tht I’d missed out on the whole shopping experience and then became really indecisive as I liked loads of different styles.

So I ended up selling the first dress and buying something more bride like – strapless (I never wanted strapless, too common!) a bit blingy (I hate bling normally) and wearing a tiara! Can’t get more traditional than that

It’s a beautiful dress though (yours I mean) – love the one shoulder look as its different. It will look dated in photos in years to come, but I guess you won’t be strssed about that .. right?!

@kariface:  I love the dress.  I hadn’t seen this dress at DB’s; otherwise I would’ve tried this one on!  If you love it, I’d buy it.  I bought the first dress I tried on and didn’t have any dress regret.  I’m the kind of person who hates given too many options; having too many options creates doubt.

I wouldn’t have picked this dress to try on but my mom picked it out for me.. and I ended up buying it!!!  I love it!  Very simple but very flattering.  And yes, the price seemed crazy!
