I think most of us 2nd guess the dress!  It’s perfectly natural, but it can also make you insane.  I think at some point you pick your favorite and move one.  Once it is fitted & accessorized the way you want it, you will become even more confident of your choice.

It is such a process it is nerve-wracking!

You definitely need to go back and try them on again – there are so many emotions involved! I think it would be good to have an honest opinion come with you as well!

Good luck and can’t wait to see pics!

I bought a dress and second guessed it for a month and it was driving me crazy! I think I just had too many people with me giving too many opinions and I ended up with a dress I wasn’t in love with (although I thought I was completely sure at the time). It bugged me so much that I grabbed my best girlfriend who is brutally honest and went back to the store to exchange it for another. I absolutely love my new dress and highly recommend looking some more if you’re not totally sure.

I second guessed a dress after purchasing it and seeing the photos at home. I ended up cancelling the order for a fee. I would suggest taking photos the next time you try them on, even if they don’t let you and you have to do secretly. I’m like you, sometimes I think I like a dress in the store but I start to question it the minute I get home, especially since I don’t have a clear image in my hand. If you’re a perfectionist, having those photos in front of you to study carefully definitely helps. You can see it from different angles in the comfort of your home, away from the pressure of salespeople or friends waiting for you to make a decision. It’ll either reenforce your opinion that it’s the right dress, or if it’s the wrong one you’ll know before it’s too late.
