@TogetherThroughLife:  Did you not try your dress on prior to buying it?

I thought I knew what I wanted in a dress.  I just wanted a simple a-line, strapless dress, with pockets.  Nothing too crazy.  I did not want beading, I did not want straps, and I did not want lace.  I just wanted simple.

My dress wasn’t anything crazy elaborate or anything, but it is very different from what I had envisioned!  The key is to keeping an open mind!!!  This is what I ended up with

@TogetherThroughLife:  There are many fish in the sea or in this case many gowns to be tried on.  Send it back and forget it. Your dream dress is out there waiting for you.

When I was pre-dress hunting, I was dead set on something plain in a trumpet style.

What I bought was neither, because trumpets looked like crap on me, and I fell in love with an ornate lace ballgown. Ballgowns were the dresses I was 10,000% dead set against because, well, I’m not the princessy type.

Go dress shopping with an open mind and something will jump out at you.

Is your dream dress really that bad? Can it be altered? Or do you just not like the style?

Definitely don’t keep it if you really don’t like it… I’m sure another bride out there would be happy to buy it from you!
