I am a Bridesmaid or Best Man in a friend’s wedding, so I went wedding dress shopping with her today. After spending 6 hours looking at tons of beautiful gowns, I’m now feeling as if mine isn’t up to par.. 🙁 I know I shouldn’t compare my dress to others, but it’s really hard not to when your friend is trying on stunning $2000 dresses and I go home to my $250 DB dress that is not nearly as jaw dropping (my dress budget was larger than that but I was happy with the DB dress when I bought it, and the low price really sweetened the deal).
I feel horrible for even thinking this way… I can’t tell if I’m crying more about not being sure if I love my dress anymore or from embarrassment that I’m even having these thoughts. I had had a couple of thoughts along these lines before I went dress shopping with my friend but had never dwelt on them.. but now I can’t get those thoughts out of my head…
Can you all give me your honest opinions on my entire ensemble? I’m posting below my dress, my veil and hair flower (my hair will be up), and my jewelry.
The above picture does not show my actual tiara or veil… this is what I’ll be wearing (hair will be in a loose up do, and sorry for the sideways pic!):
My wedding jewelry (I didn’t think I could wear a necklace with the dress so I just bought earrings and a bracelet):
Is my dress and ensemble too boring??? Do I need a do-over to find a more “WOW” dress? And am I a horrible person for even thinking about it? I feel like one. 🙁

NO KEEP IT! I think you look fabulous in your dress (even better than the model pic)! I think that the accessories will look great!

OMG LOVE IT!!! You know why? Cause it’s DIFFERENT!! It’s not all sparkly and poofy and you don’t look like a glitter cupcake 🙂 The neckline is awesome and it’s very flattering on you! Focus on the fact that you loved it at the beginning!

That dress looks great on you. That waist! OMG!!! I think once you add all the accessories it won’t feel as “boring”. Besides why would you want to spend more? Sweet dress at a sweet price = SUCCESS! I think most people have a little dress doubt so don’t feel bad. Try to focus on how happy you were when you first tried on your dress and how you felt when you bought it.

I LOVE your dress. It is very flattering on you and the neckline is interesting and different. Not the same, usual strapless dress.
I think there are a lot of brides that would have the same reaction that you did. You are in love with your dress, but how could you not second guess your decision while watching another bride try on dresses, especially more expensive ones. Even if you tried on some of those same gowns you might not like them on you as much as the gown you bought.
On the other hand, if after a little while you still have these feelings, you will need to re-examine your dress decision. You could always try to sell it and buy aother one- or buy another anyway and be a 2 dress bride!

That dress is amazing on you, way better than on the model. I love the earings and the braclet, you can go with a necklace, but I would keep it simple like a dainty cross or heart.

I think your dress is lovely, classic and timeless AND elegant to boot. You shouldn’t really worry like that. Everyone has dress envy but such is life. You are going to look beautiful on your day. Just keep remembering why you bought the dress in the first place and how you felt trying it on.

First, your dress is beautiful, simple, and elegant. Also, I LOVE your jewelry and hair accessory choices.
BUT–if you want to bling up your dress a bit, you could probably add a beautiful beaded belt around the middle for relatively cheap.
Do I think it needs it? No. But it definitely couldn’t hurt if you’re having these feelings!
