I felt the same way. I didn’t enjoy trying on dresses as much as I thought I would, so once I found one I liked I committed to it very quickly (surprised both the sales lady and my mom LOL)  Then for 5 months the only picture I had to look at was of a model in the dress – who happened to be about 5″11, 100 lbs, and have a 23 inch waist!  When I had my first fitting I was disappointed. Somehow it wasn’t what I envisioned all these months, and I got carried away looking at all the THOUSANDS of dresses I could have/should have bought. But I have since done a 180. First, the alterations people can work miracles- just let them know what you want. Make sure you have the proper undergarments – it can make a huge difference. Second – others who have seen my dress disagree and think it’s lovely – as is yours!! There is a reason we picked the dresses we did. They suit our personality. We can drive ourselves crazy looking at all the dresses out there – but at the end of the day people will notice us, and our smile and happiness, more than the dress. All brides are beautiful!

@zandra898 – what a great post! I keep second guessing myself on my dress, but you know what, everything that I look at that I kind of like, I know would look “odd” on me. My dress is the right one for me, even though I may still get dress envy!
