    Well…can you afford to buy a new dress?  Kleinfelds is pretty expensive.  If you can afford it and don’t mind spending the extra money, then go for it, but otherwise, I think it’s probably a mistake to keep the appointment.

    There is so much inspiration and so many beautiful things out there, that it’s really easy to keep changing your mind and second guess yourself out of any decision you’ve made.  Sometimes it’s best to put on the blinders and stop looking. 

    Could you post a picture of yourself in the dress?   It might help to get some feedback from other people.

    I did that–i bought my dress for $400, then went to a really nice, fancy store ($5,000 dresses) just for fun. I knew I could never let myself spend that kind of money on a dress (my money, not my parents…it makes me more frugal lol) so I did it for fun. i just knew it wasn’t going to happen so I figured why not, try them on. But if you’re tempted to pay for it, well….that’s another story.

    Woozers, that’s a gorgeous dress. I love it. What kind of fabric is that?

    I think your dress is beautiful!  🙂  I love the neckline and the color is really flattering.  Is there anything specific you’re hoping to change?  You can always change the feel with your accessories.

    I was IN LOVE with my dress and stayed away from bridal stores anyway, and about 2 months before my wedding, went to a bridal show and happened to browse a sample dress sale there and saw one dress I loved…it was $400, a steal for a very pretty Maggie, in my size, and I was soo tempted…but that was $400 more on top of the dress I already bought – so I snapped out of it, and rocked my first dress and loved it.  I cannot even remember what that maggie looks like now, to be honest.

    In retrospective, my situation involved a relatively low price, but what if that happens to you, esp with Kleinfelds, imagine what might happen?  It’s definitely your decision, but prepared to find yourself facing more decisions if you decide to go.

    I love your dress, it’s perfect in its simplicity! I would cancel the other appointment, unless you’re after a completely different style, but for a simple, classy gown, I’d say this one is definitely a keeper.

    Keep that dress! It’s gorgeous!

    By the way, I’m already a 2 dress bride and I STILL don’t love my dress! I just have such a hard time making decisions!

    Your dress is absolutely gorgeous. I am envious. I think buyers remorse is very normal.  Do not make any decisions at Kleinfield’s today.  Come home and try on your dress or go to the store where it is and try it on.  Three months after buying my dress, I went to another store and tried on a bunch more, I even found one I loved.  But when I retried mine on, I knew it was the one.  So go, have fun, but re try yours on before you make any decisions.
