@Mazza:   it was her second choice 

What was her first choice? Can she sell this one and get another dress “off the rack”?

Is there an alteration she could have made to make her like it more? I only ordered my dress about a month ago and I am having some second thoughts, especially when I watch wedding shows and see all of these beautiful gowns, but it really helps me when I think back to all the different styles I tried on and how much I disliked they way they looked on me, and remember how I kept going back to my dress after I tried on several others once I found mine.

Can you try adding accessories like a bolero or a sash? Would alterations help? If not, could you buy a dress used locally or a sample dress that wouldn’t require major alterations?

I’m curious to see her dress. I’m sure it’s beautiful! Do you have a photo?

You could try going to a bridal salon and buying a sample off the rack or adding something extra to the dress (sash, bling), changing up her accesories. Also, why dont you have her do a trail run of her wedding day look with make up/hair/jewelry/dress and see if she still feels the same way. 🙂

@Mazza:  I was right…..it was gorgeous! Insanely gorgeous!! So it looks like she obviously went through with wearing it on her big day. I hope she was happy with the choice? She looked truly stunning, so she should have been!
