I understand!!! My Fiance doesn’t want to see my wedding dress or anything until the day, but I did show him some pictures of ones I like, and he told me what he liked, then I bought a different one! AND mine was on a whim! I haven’t even tried dresses on, and saw this one on the internet and bought it!!! But, you have to remember, since you knew that this was the dress when you bought it, then your Fiance will LOVE it on you!!!! And he will think it is the best dress that you could have bought ๐Ÿ™‚ POST A PIC THOUGH!!!! WANT TO SEE IT ๐Ÿ™‚

You look SO AMAZING! No really. Nothing to worry about. It’s perfect on you. Now you just have to stop looking at wedding dresses until your date or else you will get even more anxious

But I am lol-ing @ “I’m not a whim kinda gal…..I’m an accountant”

That dress is so beautiful and it fits you *perfectly*!! I love the low back. It’s totally normal to have anxiety, especially since you bought your dress so far out. The key is to stop looking at dresses. You’ll just torture yourself if you don’t. Again, great purchase and congrats!!

You look absolutely beautiful! It looks like the perfect dress to me–I mean, obviously I don’t know you, but you have such a beautiful glow and smile on your face, and it fits you great. I don’t think it looks too plain at all–it’s got all that sparkle and such a pretty train. Maybe your FH says he likes ball gowns but he is going to be like, “Ball gown? Whaa?” when he sees you looking so perfect walking down the aisle.

I totally had anxiety the next day after buying my dress. It was the first one I tried on and it was just too perfect that I couldn’t believe I had already found my dress – literally the first one I picked up and tried on! 

My suggestion? Put it in your closet. Don’t look at it for a couple weeks. In a few weeks get some time to yourself and pull it out again and look at yourself in it. In the meantime don’t get wistful about other dresses – that’s just asking for trouble!

Your dress looks gorgeous. Anxiety or not, you definitely picked a winner. You probably are feeling it more so because there is so much time but if you “step away” for alittle while and come back, you will probably feel much better.

That dress looks gorgeous on you and it is not too simple at all.  A lot of brides get the anxiety after buying the dress but keep reminding yourself of how happy you were in that dress.  You look great!

I had anxiety too. In fact, I still am, somewhat because I am adding sleeves and a little poof (not full on ball gown) to mine. So I’m nervous I might hate it when I am done!

your dress looks fab on you!
