    What do you mean it’s not unique?

    I love it!

    And it looks awesome on you.

    But ultimately, it has to be your call. If you’re not happy with it, then you’re not happy and you need to find something else, but personally, I think it’s stunning.

    The dress is beautiful. When I first bought my dress, I loved it. Then I hated it a month later and I felt that I should have waited and tried on more dresses. I only went shopping twice and bought a dress that was nothing like I was looking for.

    But the thing that gets me motivated is, it is your wedding day. Are you going to feel like that special princess on your wedding day if you are not happy with your dress. Do you see yourself walking down the isle in that dress? You can always sell the dress if you find a gown that makes you feel like that special bride that you are.


    Let us know what you choose.

    Wow, your dress is amazing and you look amazing in it! the dress looks well made and the material is gorgeous! what do you think it is that you dont like about it?

    think about it, but if your really dont like it, your not going to be a confident bride, go look for another. shopping for another might reassure you as to how beautiful your dress really is.

    I love your dress. You have a stunning figure and look great in it, but only you know if this is “your”dress or not.

    Please remember there are not very many “unique” dresses. There are only so many types of necklines, dress shapes , waistlines etc. Everything has been done before and will be done again.

    I LOVE this dress on you!  If you’re really not feeling it, what about changing the sash to something else, like a colored sash or something? But really, it’s gorgeous on you!!

    I happen to think that dress is gorgeous! But you need to feel beautiful.

    Don’t think about whether it is unique or not- very few dresses are- it matters if you feel great in it. I was looking for a dress that was unique and ended up with a more generic A-line that made me feel like a princess.

    Your figure looks amazing in this dress and the detailing is so great.

    Its really pretty, and pretty unique.  Don’t look at it for a whole week and then look at it again.  No pictures, no nothing.  I looked at my dress to long and then started to second guess it.  I eventually took a break from looking at it and now I love it again.

    I didn’t cry when I 1st got my dress.  My Maid/Matron of Honor did and I just thought my dress was gorgeous.  However @ my 1st fitting 2wks ago, I had to hold back the tears.  I looked damn good in Her.  Your dress is gorgeous.   So, my advice to take a break from dress looking.  Time to obsess about some other wedding detail.

    I absolutely love that dress, you must be crazy 🙂   It looks perfect on you!  Some people just have these expectations of having this crazy over the top moment, but that doesn’t happen for everyone.  With that said, you don’t sound too excited about it though.  Maybe you could try some more shopping just to make sure.  Are you prepared to sell that dress and take a loss possibly if you decide to buy another dress?

    @squeak35: I did the same exact thing last week!!


    You picked the dress bc somewhere inside you really loved how it felt and looked on.  I went back and forth with my dress I dont know how many times.  Totally bit the bullet and had my fittings done and the had my moment when I had a few things changed.  I almost broke the bank on another dress when inside I really loved mine all along…it just didnt fit me right. Get yourself a great tailor and fall in love with it again~!
