I am so sorry you are dealing with this. As a person who has had multiple dress regrets and multiple purchases, I know that it is hard to be okay with a decision that your heart is just not in. I hope it works out. And please post pics!

I bought my dress 3 weeks ago and have MAJOR DRESS REGRET. So bad that I went back to the store and told them last week.  They agreed to exchange the dress to something more that I love. Everything you just said is exactly what i said.  I bought the dress w/o family and only a co-worker and honestly bought it b/c of the excitement and everyone at the store loved it on me.

I’m bringing family this Thursday to help me choose the right dress.  If you don’t feel like it’s “Your Dress” that’s normal.  I hear and read posts here about dress regret and apparently it’s normal.  I thinks its us brides to be too.  We so much contradict our decisions, esp. when it’s a huge decision.

I’m sure it looks good on you but definitely YOU will need to feel good in the dress no matter what others say.

^ I found thess on another brides thread, I hope she doesn’t mind I borrowed them. They are better that the “model” pictures –  I think the dress is beautiful, are you doing a veil or head peice? and can you talk to Future Mother-In-Law and ask her to not act like it’s her wedding (steal the monster in law speach!) everyone will be looking at you, because you are the bride and if anyone sees your Future Mother-In-Law in bridal attire they will just be thinking how tacky of her it is that she is trying to steal your thunder. I would think that anyway. I’m sorry if i have a little hate for your FMIL, but thats how i read your post lol

Your dress is beautiful, it really is but you have to love it and that’s what matter most. Do you think the issue is that your FMIL’s dress is similar or that you simply do not like your dress? I would have a serious issue if someone was wearing a dress similar to mine at my wedding. You still have a some time left to change dresses if you want. But I would only pick another dress if the issue is truly that you do not want your dress. You can sell yours and check preowned dress sites for another one you prefer or see if the place you bought the dress will let you exchange.

 

edit – okay yeah I see the pics of FMILs dress. If you decide to pick another one don’t bring her.
