After about a month of deliberating, I made my dress choice last weekend. It was down to a choice between two and after lots of flip flopping, I finally decided. I’m very excited, as I love the dress that I chose. However, I’m also finding myself looking wistfully at other dresses that resemble the one I didn’t choose. I’m not regretting my decision.. I just really liked both choices. Each represented a different aspect of my style and personality and I guess I’m just sad that I don’t get to show the other part off.
Did any of you go through something similar? Did you find yourself mourning the dress(es?) that wasn’t chosen?

I went through the same thing. I had my dress option narrowed down to two choices, and I ended up choosing the one that was NOT the dress I stared at forever online and thought I would get. I did at times miss the dress I didn’t choose, especially when I saw other pictures of it, but I was ultimately happy with the decision I made. I found that any dress envy or doubts I had usually passed rather quickly and I am relieved I stuck with my choice. I just chalk it up to the fact that there are so many beautiful dresses out there, but we can only have one…it’s just the way it goes!

I’m really starting to feel like most brides go through this, even just a little. The important thing is just to remember why you chose the dress you did! 🙂

I think this is completely normal. I has serious second guessing right after ordering. It happens.
As soon as I tried my dress on again, I had no doubts about it.

Oh gosh, me too! Same thing with me! Two dresses, but…you can only wear one, right? Don’t fret!

Thanks girls. Yeah I’m totally happy with my choice. I don’t feel like I’m second guessing really.. I don’t regret getting the one I did over the other. I love it! I feel powerful & beautiful in it. It had far more wow-factor than anything else I tried, runner up dress included. I’m just sad for the other dress because it was beautiful, too. I could imagine myself in it as well, and the feelings that it evokes are different than the ones that my dress of choice creates. (The one I chose is more sassy/sexy/fitted, the other is more A-line/demure/classic.) I almost feel like I’m betraying that dress/that side of myself by going the other direction. Silly to anthropomorphise like that, I know.. but I seem to be in a funk of it at the moment and wanted to vent.
