Just go try it on again!!! I did like 4 times:)) maybe to see what veil or shoes would look good? Or if you have your jewelry:) I ordered mine in white and they only have the ivory sample but I still love it! DO NOT go try on other dresses!! It’ll make it worse. Mine is coming this month and I know I’ll be trying it on a lot!!

Stop looking at dresses! I’ve seen lots of ladies on here who keep looking at dresses and eventually decide to get a second one. I think it’s natural to second guess your choice. Why not go try it on again to make yourself feel better, then stop obsessing. How about moving onto another research item like centerpieces?

If I were you I wouldn’t try on other dresses hoping that they WON’T look as great. That’s a quick way to fall in love with a new dress and regret buying the first one at all. I bought my dress about two years ago (we had to push our date back at one point) so I went through a lot of feelings you have. My dress is kept at my FMIL’s house where it would be safe from my pets. I don’t try it on for fear of ruining the lace or beading. What’s helped me is looking up pics of the dress on real brides. I’m not sure if that would help you at all, but it’s worth a shot.

Now if you are having major regret I’m not sure if it would maybe be worth it to find a different dress. Somebody who’s bought a different dress and lost the previous deposit would have to help you on that.

I went back to my bridal salon after I had ordered my dress.  I asked them to try the sample on and take some photos of me in, which they were more than accomodating to do seeing as I had already ordered it.  They told me they get that alot.  I did not try on any others, just the one I had ordered.  I refuse to become a 2 dress bride.

Go back, put her on, and make sure you take some photos from as many angles as possible.  So next time you become unsure, you can look at the photos and remember what it was like.

AND STOP LOOKING AT DRESSES!!!!!!!!!!!!!  No matter which dress you pick, there will always be another one different, with a detail you like.  Go back, get some photos, and just concentrate on her.  July will be here before you know it

Yes I did, I was having dress doubts and went back to try it on again. I also tried on a few veils as well. It made me feel much better about my dress and reminded me why I had chosen it in the first place.

@bump:  I would go to the salon under the pretense of picking out accessories. Have a friend take more pictures of you in the dress, and try on a few veils while you’re there. Then you can move on to obsessing over finding the perfect veil for your dress (it seems simple, but just like dresses there are a lot of options out there). Don’t try on other dresses, it won’t help.

I just went back today to see the dress I bought again. I started to have regrets and foggy memories of it. The photo of the model looked awful and I started second guessing myself. My consultant said this is more common than not and that every bride experiences some form of regret and second guessing. She says a lot of people come back to try on their dresses again and actually encouraged me to come back in. When I tried it on again, I remembered why I fell in love with it the first time. It’s the perfect dress and I’m no longer going to look at any other dresses!  Im sure you would be able to go back and try it on. Just say you want to see how it looks with earrings or something. I think you will still love it!
