I don’t know if this will help you or make your dress regret worse. However, I have had dress regret since I had my first try on after my gown arrived, and I’ve been married for three years. I had never even seen SYTTD until AFTER my wedding, and, once I did, and once I saw some of the spectacularly beautiful gowns there and on weddingbee (which I didn’t become a member of until after my wedding), I really have struggled with dress regret.
HOWEVER, I can honestly say that, at the time, I think I probably selected one of the best styles for my figure and budget, and it met so many of my criteria (sweetheart neckline; lots of bling on the bodice; 100-percent silk fabric; lightweight; as figure-flattering as possible for my plus-sized, hour-glass shape; elegant, etc.) that, when I objectively evaluate my choice, it likely was a good choice for me, based on what was availble to me, in my area, at that time, and in my price range (gorgeous, blingy, corsetted, totally-out-of-my-price-range Pnina Tornai dream gown notwithstanding! haha) And, so, I’ve tried to make peace with myself over that choice.
Also, since seeing SYTTD, I’ve seen many gorgeous gowns that I thought, “Wow, that’s one I would have seriously considered!” Yet, weeks later, on another episode, I always seemed to find another one that captures my interest. So, even if I had chosen a DIFFERENT gown, it’s likely that I STILL would have some dress regret, do you know what I’m saying? There is always going to be something more stunning, more figure-flattering, with more of a “wow” factor “out there” at some point before you walk down the aisle.
Sometimes brides will buy a gown that just is not flattering on them at ALL. And they realize this, and they find another gown — at the last minute — that they love. I’ve seen several bees post about this, and in those select cases, I believe they made the right choice to switch to another gown. Usually, they had to chose an after-market purchase of a pre-owned dress to be able to do this, but the “new” (to them!) gown was much prettier on them, and I think they made wise choices.
However, in your case, I see an absolutely beautiful Enoani gown that has so many beautiful features, and it looks fantastic on you. Although there MAY be a gown that you would love better, is it worth it to lose a couple of thousand dollars on this gown and then spend another couple of thousand dollars on another dress just to have that “It’s Perfect!” feeling? I’m thinking that the answer is no. Because it’s only a matter of time until you see something ELSE that you may wish you had chosen instead.
I hope that this all makes sense! 🙂
