It’s beautiful and looks great on you… now stop second guessing yourself and get off of Pinterest.

Wow that dress is stunning! I think it looks amazing on you and I’m sure if it’s everything you ever wanted in a dress you wouldn’t regret it! My only question is are you willing to stop looking at dresses? Because I think the key to avoiding dress regret is to stop looking after you purchase. Also have you considered that new styles will come out between now and your wedding date. I waited until November last year to purchase my dress because I wanted to see previews of the 2016 styles from all the designers I liked to make sure there wasn’t something new coming out that I would like better & when I realised there wasn’t I was 110% keen on buying my dress and stopped looking. I would show it to your friends and mother in law and before that appointment decide if you are really ready to stop looking at dresses if you purchase this one! Hope this helps and I think it might just be your dress!! It’s amazing.

This dress is gorgeous! I’d snap it up and then stop looking at other bridal dresses (except for on the weddingbee forums).

P.S: You might actually want to find out when that model’s collection was first started because I fell in love with another dress a bit aways from my wedding date and it got discontinued before I was ready to order.

sweetpea1002:  it’s a beautiful dress and it looks beautiful on you. I don’t know much about dress regret I had an idea what I wanted and I hope I am getting exactly that. If you envisioned this to be the dress and you found it I would imagine you wouldn’t have dress regret?

sweetpea1002: It looks amazing you. It looks perfect on you, like it was made for you. It’s exquisite. I don’t think you’ll top that and if you do get dress regret with this dress one and find me and I’ll slap you around the face with a big wet fish LOL. You’ve started in plenty of time and not too soon at all, infact I wish I had started sooner. I would say the more you try on, the less chance you have of dress regret, so you could do some more shopping in between time.

What is the rush? Seriously, they probably won’t stop making the dress unless it is already a few years old….

If you love it, get it. I think the other bees are right though. Once you purchase it, don’t try on any other wedding dresses.

I think differently, Ive seen brides secondguess and buy another one. As long as they still have the dress later and your family dont mind to shop more, I would wait. Trend changes and designers have new collection every year. I think you should sleep on it more.

You are so stunning!  I think waiting until March sounds like a great idea, especially since you have time.  Dress regret can become so real, especially when you buy something that someone else likes but you aren’t so into… or if you keep looking online!  But you look so, so amazing and I think you have a realistic approach to it, and will make a great decision 🙂

I placed my deposit on my dress in Nov 2015 and my wedding is February 2017. I had originally found the dress in July and went to 6 or 7 different stores before finalizing my decision. I’m sure dress regret is real, but what’s helped me is that I unfollow all wedding dress related instragrams and remember that it’s just a dress!!! 

Good luck to you!
