@mssmiley:  Okay, so I say that if you can afford to get your dream dress, then you should do it.  I don’t think you should do it if you can’t afford. That said, I wish I would’ve gotten a different dress when I had dress regret during the engagement. I still struggle with dress regret after the wedding.  It sucks.

And I love your dream dress, btw.

@howtobeawife:  I too had dress regret.  Several people tried to talk me out of it and the second I put on my dream dress for them to see everyone realized I had purchased the wrong dress.  With a lot of luck and even more “Devine Intervention” I was able to cancel my order with no penalties and purchase my dream gown.  There is a reason you’re feeling like this.  I must say you look so pretty in both but you should really go with your heart!!

@mssmiley:  Just breathe and do what feels right to you!!!  The most important thing is that on the day you say I Do you feel great and comfortable.  It will reflect in all of your photos and always be in the back of your mind.  Keep us posted my fingers are crossed for you.

I had dress regret also!  I tried on my first dress and it was the first one I actually looked good in and liked.  They were very high sales and I felt some pressure.  I really didn’t feel good in it and couldn’t wait to take it off.  I guess that should of been a hint but I ended up purchasing the gown anyway.  I decided that I would keep looking after just to see if there was something better.  I ended up seeing a sales girl putting a dress away and it was so far from what I thought I wanted but thought what the heck why not….well I feel in love with it.  I really didn’t want to buy it when I already had a dress I couldn’t return but I would be really upset with myself if I didn’t get the dress I REALLY wanted just because I was scared that I wouldn’t be able to sell my old one.  Currently I have had my dress for sale on preownedweddingdresses for about two months with several offers.  I would say if you are willing to sell it for cheap then you are in luck and will be able to sell it.

I bet you can sell your first dress on oncewed.com fairly fast, I would try there! You made a good choice, you are going to feel like a million bucks on your wedding day and that’s what really matters!

That’s AMAZING how everything worked out for you!! The power of intention– I tell ya. When I saw the 1st dress, I thought that it was the dress you had regret about buying, and I thought “no way, that is BEAUTIFUL on her.” It definitely flatters your figure and it has a very unqiue top. Love it!

I too had a change of heart and I’m so glad I went with it… I have a dress online for sale here in the classifieds, on craigslist and on oncewed and preowned wedding dresses as well-I get a lot of inquiries, but I’m not ready to drop the price, just be patient and congrats on getting your dream dress!!

I actually think the empire waist looks better on you than the natural waist. I say if you have the money to get the original one you fell in love with, then go for it.

@mssmiley:  That first dress is so rich and elegant, wow! IT is truly stunning, I can see why you love it.

But your dress, the one in photo#2–I like that style a lot. To me those criss-crossed bodices that dip in a sweetheart on top of a ballgown skirt seem very “now” but also traditional. It’s not too trendy. I think that photo isn’t all that great (as you say) and I’ll bet IRL it is flattering and lovely. You can bling it up with accessories.

The first one is so slimming and gorgeous. I’m glad you were able to go back for it and get a good deal! You’ll be so happy on your wedding day 🙂
