I had it too! But when I tried it on again, I knew why I loved the dress in the first place. It will be beautiful!!!

I’m sure you nailed it on the head the first time. Your Fiance is going to love your wedding dress because you’ll be in it! If you’re really in doubt, instead of thinking, “Did I make the right decision?” think about all the things that you made you love the dress to begin with.

Other thing that helped me was to think “it is just a dress”, no matter what people going to think you are beautiful because YOUR ARE THE BRIDE!

Your Fiance will think you are the most beautiful woman in the world because he loves you! With all the emotion going to, I think he would care for the dress less. If was going to chose my dress based on what my Fiance thinks its hot I would walk in church with a mini shirt. 

My dress has lots of lace and layers and I know that if he saw a picture of my dress he would think its ugly, but wait until he sees me in it with hair and make up and all the 9 yards.  I think his jaw will drop~ (it better drop!!!)

Girl, I have the very same feelings..!  I bought the Mori Lee 1802, and even though I love it.. these lace dresses I keep coming across are stunning..!  I’m sure your choice will be gorgeous – it’s already pre-approved by the Fiance too!.. You can wear a lace one if you decide to renew your vows 🙂

I feel your pain! I wish i had gotten a lace dress as well, but sometimes it is just best to stick with your original plan. Maybe you could wear something lacy to the rehearsal so you can still get some of your lace fix in?

I think dress regret is probably pretty normal. There’s all this hype about the “one day” and you’re supposed to make a decision on ONE dress—THE dress. But in reality, when I tried on dresses, I could envision myself wearing a multitude of different ones! I could see myself in something sexy, something lacy, something poofy… all were so different, and it was so hard to pick just one! I had dress regret for sure. I thought I ended up with something way more fancy, and not as sleek as what I had imagined. I felt afterwards like I had been swayed into purchasing something that was not what I had in mind, and it made me feel like maybe I wasn’t being true to what I really wanted! But in reality, when I picked the dress, I was being true to some part of me that really liked it. It’s hard sometimes to reconcile your initial thoughts with your ultimate choice. Sometimes your choice changes, and you obviously really liked something about the dress to buy it! Maybe it was the idea that your fiance would just adore the dress, and it’s okay if that was a deciding factor. I have changed my mind on almost every detail of my wedding because so much influences each decision!

@sweetpeony:  I like this idea! Why not get a few styles in since it’s so hard to decide on just one!

I also agree with PPs on here. I love the weddingbee and SYTTD etc. but I think they can also be harmful b/c there is so much obsession and emphasis on THE DRESS.  You only get one chance so make it perfect!  In reality, I think you will look gorgeous no matter what and the dress (though important!) really should not make or break your wedding.  If you are comfortable and can find things you love about the dress you should be fine.  If you think that you will be miserable, get a new dress.  Good luck! 🙂
