I totally understand your panic and being unsure about everything. I myself am stil doubting after a very several months.
But I have to agree with the other bees; I like the one you picked the best. As they said, see a seamstress about the length of the train. And try not to look at other dresses anymore. There are endless options on the internet and you’ll just go crazy
Stay calm and remember why you chose it, why you like it. And the minor things you can see with a seamstress.

bellabelle12 : Thanks for the kind & reassuring words. It’s so funny that I never imagined I’d be that person, you know? I am usually super low key and this whole wedding thing is more FH’s idea, than a dream I’ve had my entire life. Sometimes I feel like we should elope and call it a day! haha
I just called a local seamstress and sent some photos of the dress. Let’s see what she says.

I don’t like the last one at all…. I’m sorry 😬. I love the second one but it’s difficult without seeing a pic of you in it (but I bought my dress without dptrying it on, lol). The first one is stunning on but I did end up voting for #2 because it seems you’re looking for reasons not to get the first one… if that makes sense. Any of them will look gorgeous so no worries there 💕

I think you made the right choice! But I am completely obsessed with the poppy stardust omg! So I think either or will be beautiful.

acarolnc87 : I can totally feel you! Some years ago I wasn’t even sure if I want to marry hahaha
And it has been a crazy time for me too. I wanted something low key as well and we’re still keeping it simple I guess, but with all the impressions, ideas and pictures you can find online you just start to question everything and – in my case at least – think about the dress too much and get sooo confused. I felt like it was even a bigger decision picking the dress then my husband And there’s this pressure just jumping at you, of it being such an important day and therefore it has to be perfect. And this although before I didn’t even really care about all those wedding things.
And I normally like organizing, but like 3 months ago I was like: let’s just go to the beach with our parents and sisters and brothers and a few friends and forget about everything. Now I’ve come to the point where I think, whatever, this day is going to be great, because there’ll be the persons I care about celebrating with us and the rest doesn’t really matter.
I know it’s easier said than done, but try to remember what is really important for you on that day and that there’s a solution for everything.

I accidentally hit #2 but I meant #1–1 is amazing!! You can always bustle the train if it’s too long.
Also your venue sounds absolutely amazing.

I love the first one! I think you picked the right one. You look gorgeous. Also you can shorten the train in alterations 🙂
Post # 25
Yep, the first pick the best one on you!
Post # 26
Definitely the first one! It looks absolutely amazing and elegant and gorgeous on you! 🙂

There’s absolutely no question you made the right decision! Your dress is gorgeous on you! I agree about either shortening the train or bustling (even if you aren’t fond of it, it would allow you to have the train for the ceremony and to dance, too).

The first one , without a doubt . The train looks perfectly manageable to me, but you could consider a wrist loop if you don’t like bustles , I don’t either, so i do understand

First one by a mile. You were right about how well it will fit it with the setting. The Alhambra is amazing. IMO the other two dresses don’t even come close. Not fond of the third one at all.

Thank you bees for all insights and comments! I am more confident about my decision now. I will confirm the first one on Wednesday so they can start production. This forum is so so helpful, it’s good to know we’re not alone and we experience all same anxieties and doubts – that makes me feel less crazy. Hehe 😜
Much love ❤️
