I LOOOOOVE it!!! I’m always all for lace, but that is stunning! I say keep it and spend some of the 2nd dress money on a beautiful veil and accessories!

Absolutely beautiful!!  And I think the champagne color looks great with your skin tone (much better than white) and it’s perfect for a fall wedding.

Honestly I wish I had gone to one place and been done with it. It took me 3 1/2 months to find my dress and I really thought, I didn’t care I’d find a dress easy I wasn’t picky no big deal . . . I had a terrible experience it just wasn’t fun nothing felt right. They all looked nice nothing just felt like “this is it” and I felt like all of a sudden there was more pressure on me and it came out of no where. It was a really weird thing because the dress wasn’t one of my bigger priorities. I finally did find a dress and I have a great story now (My flower girl picked it out and I would have sent the dress back had she not been with me but I LOVED it when I tried it). Here are a couple of things to think about, a lot of places require about 4 months to order so you may be cutting it close. Talk to your mom about how you’re feeling she’d probably want to know, then maybe once you start trying some things on you’ll know if you should be looking again or not.

By the way that dress is really really stunning on you so if you get “stuck” you have a really gorgeous dress and the color is amazing on you!

I think that a beautiful dress! It looks so great on you, lace is so classic and the fact you need no alterations is amazing. If you truly feel you love the dress then I say go for it. I can understand missing out on the experience and I agree that maybe you should kinda talk to your mom.

I have to agree, that dress really is beautiful on you, both lace-wise and color-wise. I also agree that you should splurge a little on an amazing veil and accessories. I love my dress, but I actually felt more “magic” when I tried on my veil. I think it’s because the veil is really and truly unique to just brides. So go veil shopping! It will be fun and might give you that “trying bridal things on” feeling that you’re missing.

And really: I love the dress.

It sounds to me more like you feel you missed out on the whole dress shopping experience, rather than really disliking the dress. The dress is stunning on you, so timeless with the lace and the colour really suits you…so ask yourself, why are you feeling like this.  Is there any way you could go try on lots more dresses, to re-coup part of the dress shopping experience? this might also show you that the first dress was the right one…or the opposite, but at least you’d know and not keep second guessing yourself. I understand your feelings about your mum – my mum went ballistic when I bought a second veil (long story), but eventually came round. As will your mum…Smile

Wow! That dress is amazing! I love it!!!

Many brides find their dresses the first time out. So don’t think that makes you weird.

In the end, you need to love it. But I agree with other posters that it may help to have a veil, etc.

That dress is beautiful on you! I agree with the other bees that you could maybe go shopping and splurge on accessories like a veil! That way maybe you will maybe feel like you are getting the shopping experience.

I was nervous scrolling down thinking what dress could you possibly have found but that dress is amazing on you.  The fit and color are gorgeous and you’ll feel less naked when you put a necklace on and especially with a veil.  AMAZING!

Honestly, you look amazing in that dress! If you truly feel naked in it and it’s making you uncomfortable, you could always look for a pretty bolero or something like that to wear with it.

I love it.  I really love lace.  In a way it is similar to mine.

You can probably talk to a seamstress about adding cap sleaves if it makes you more comportable.
