You look so happy in your photos! The dress looks great on you too! I have my dress put away in my closet so I don’t look at it everyday.

I think that getting it altered will make a huge difference. I also agree with the others, you look so happy in your pics and BEAUTIFUL!! I also LOVE and firmly believe in what Magenta said…we are all guilty of wanting to look more and what-if’s.

BUT, At the end of the day- you need to be happy. Good luck girl!!!

I agree with Magenta. There’s always gonna be another dress out there for you, just like there can always be another man out there for you. Stop looking! You look amazingly happy in all of those pictures. It looks like you really love that dress!

Exactly.  Each day a new designer will appear and there will be another fabulous dress out there.  I’m in the looking part and will be getting my dress soon and it’s a bit overwhelming..and underwhelming at the same time.

You look gorgeous in that dress!

I think the dress looks fabulous on you, but having been in the same situation myself, here are my thoughts:

Like me, you probably bought your dress too early. I bought my dress 18 months before my wedding and had doubts right away. They passed but then they kept coming back and my mom said the same thing. I ultimately found another dress and fell in love with it. Because I didn’t want to be impusive or risk falling in love with yet another dress, I shopped around until I was sick of looking at dresses. I still loved the second dress and my parents did too, so I ended up buying it. I haven’t tried to sell dress #1 yet but I’m sure I won’t be able to make 100% of the money back. But I don’t regret buying dress #2 because I love it, it’s more me, and I knew I’d always have slight regret if I stayed with my original dress.

I think there’s nothing wrong with going on and trying some dresses if you’re having doubts. The experience will either a) reaffirm that Dress #1 is the right dress, or 2) that there is a more perfect dress out there for you. I just don’t want you to have regrets on your wedding day!

Your dress is beautiful and you look beautiful in it!  Have you tried it on recently?  I had a MAJOR case of dress envy, but then I tried my dress on again and fell in love with it all over again.

My biggest advice is to STOP looking (which I think the pp’s have told you to do as well!).

Good luck!

That dress is really beautiful, unique, and looks very “you”!

don’t worry about having second thoughts from buying early.  I bought my dress super-early (like last spring) and I started to worry about it too.  I hadn’t been planning on buying, but a good opportunity came along and I went with it.  I think everyone worries a little bit.  Relax, it looks great :o)

It’s a beautiful dress!  It looks great on you! 

Honestly, I’ve had similar thoughts about mine, but whenever I’ve tried it on, I’ve loved it again.  So, I stopped looking at other dresses.  My dress is gorgeous, it fits me and my personality, but if I keep shopping for dresses, of COURSE I’m going to find other dresses I love!  So, in my experience, it was much better to stop looking at other dresses than to buy another one.

Stop looking. It looks awesome on you!

I looked at other dresses, too, and it’s easy to want what you DON’T have. And those magazine dresses are in the thousands of dinero…how could you NOT want them? That’s what these companies do…tempt you and lure you with pretty dresses to fork over your money!

You look great, seriously
