I probably tried on 10 dresses over the three months since I got engaged. I wanted a natural or empire waistline, slightly ball gown tulle, with a beaded or lace sweetheart neckline. I figured that style would be great on a larger bust and small hipped person like myself.
I didn’t like any of the dresses until I put on the Casablanca 2035; it was eactly what I wanted! It is just so beautiful and I feel like a princess in it. The other pro’s to picking this dress is that it isn’t too ball gowny for a garden ceremony (I think).
I loved it so much I went back to the bridal shop and bought the dress! The only problem is now that I bought it I wonder if I made the right decision especially when I see other dresses. Is this normal?
I’m considering making the neckline more sweetheart. What do you think?
Here I am in the dress:

That’s beautiful! So sparkly. You made a great choice!
I hear you on second guessing yourself… I’ve been doing so for months. I still think about what-might-have-been, but I am super indecisive anyway. I love my dress. I actually watched my first episode of Say Yes to the Dress yesterday, after MONTHS because I am finally over the fear of seeing something better. It was kind of a problem. I avoided looking at any dress unless it was totes different than mine out of fear that I would have dress regret. Ultimately, I realized that while there may be a super tiny itty bitty slim chance that there is a better dress out there for me, I am happy with the choice I made. I liked a lot of dresses, but I love mine.
Your dress is beautiful, and you are beautiful in it. That’s all that matters. 🙂

Thank you ladies!
@Fanciful: Glad to know I’m not the only one. I keep questioning if I could have given a fitted style or mermaid style a chance.

@NadiaN: As much as LOVE WB, after I bought my dress the dress boards drove me crazy! Sometimes it’s not a good thing to have so much choice. There are soooo many different dresses out there and unfortunately we only get to pick one. I’ve learnt that it’s Ok to like other dresses too. I ordered my dress in April and she came in Friday. When I tried her on yesterday, I fell back in love with her! She’s beautiful!
I really like your dress. I think it’s very flowy and romantic. It suits your figure beautifully. You should definitely be happy with your choice! It is the PERFECT dress for a garden ceremony. I love it!
My advice would be to avoid the dress threads as they only confuse us and make us second guess ourselves.
Enjoy your dress!
