You are, indeed, just driving yourself nuts. There is so much choice out there on the market that, no matter how happy you are with your dress, veil, caterer, whatever, well, there’s always going to be something that looks a little bit better to you.  

The best advice I can give is once you’ve made a decision on something, then stop looking at any more of that “thing.”  Bought the dress? No more online dress shops or bridal shops for you.  Got the veil? Then if you get within 10 feet of a veil, close your eyes. Just.Stop.Looking. 

There’s a lot of marketing hype over weddings. Vendors KNOW brides-to-be are emotional, excited, and easily parted from their money.  They also KNOW you are a bride-to-be because of your Internet cookies, so when you’re online at least, you’re going to get bombarded with more stuff to buy. Tune it out, be happy with your choices, and consider it a done deal. No need to torment yourself!

I went through the same thing. I think the problem is that there are so many choices out there and when we are planning we are planning with the mind set that this will be the only time we will ever get to wear a wedding gown, or a veil, or pick out bridesmaids dresses, and hopefully that’s the case. It’s not like buying a new pair of shoes or jeans. You can always buy another pair next week or next month or even a few months from now. You so much pressure to make the right decision because this is your only change to do so. I’ve driven myself crazy doing the same thing and in the end I always came back to my original choice and all the extra stress was for nothing. Just stick with your first instinct and you should be good, if not you will make yourself nuts.
