Hmm… that sucks.  If you can sell it and rebuy, I say go for it.  If not, just think about how much more you can eat at your wedding without worrying about getting a food-baby in a more fitted dress?? 🙂

Both are gorgeous gowns!!!! I was looking at the ambrosia one for myself. 

its tough to say without seeing you in both.  What is your wedding style/ venue theme? What is your body frame?  Curvy or thin?

I am only 5’2 and 100lbs and I am wearing a ballgown. Once it is fitted to you and you have some heels on you won’t regret it. You bought the dress for a reason… YOU LOVE IT. I will post my dress and you can see how it looks on me. You may feel like it is too much dress on a tiny person. To each their own! But maybe it will help seeing someone else and make you feel better about your own dress.

Trying it on again will defiantly help you remember why you love it and settle those regret feelings.  I actually got the Maggie Bernadette dress and while I love it I kept asking myself if I might have missed out on something.  We all go through those feelings so try it on and remember why you love it!

Try it on again. If you still feel this way, try to re-sell it. if it sells, look for another. If not, keep it. I agree though, that once the dress is fitted to your body and you have your heels on and hair and makeup all done up, you are going to look and feel amazing! Any chance we could get a picture of the ddress ON YOU? They are both totally gorgeous, By The Way

I think the dress you chose is gorgeous! I’ve seen it on another bride on WB and loved it. I don’t know if this will help you with your dress regret or not, but here is something to consider:  Although fit-and-flare and other more fitted styles are beautiful, you can wear those types of dresses to special events for the rest of your life. Your wedding is likely the only opportunity you will ever have to wear a ball gown. 🙂

Can you find a store that carries it near you? You have to put it back on to make a decision.

It’s totally gorgeous! Try to remember there will always be other gorgeous dresses but that doesn’t mean yours isn’t, too!

You look lovely. I agree some crinolin will make it look more like the picture on the website.

If you still feel iffy, try to pinpoint what you dont like or what you want and perhaps alterations can be made.

Very pretty! I actually think it looks awesome without the crinoline!
