I recently said yes to the dress. I very recently elocated halfway across the country to be with my fiance after several years of long distance, due to this I decided it was best to go dress shopping alone. I want to surprise him on our wedding 🙂 I also haven’t shared pictures of my dress with anyone I know because I’d like to surprise them all at once. But now I’m not sure how I feel about the dress. I loved it at the store, but I’m not really expressive or the type to have that tearful moment so now I’m doubting whether or not it’s the right dress. Especially now that I’m waiting for it to come in! Please help! Please keep in mind that it’s not yet fitted. I’m sorry for the large picture!

It looks lovely on you. I love the lace on the bottom. Many people aren’t super emotional about dress shopping (I wasn’t. And I also went shopping alone). I think it’s easy to second guess yourself now that you’re waiting. I bet once it comes in, you will realize why you chose it and be happy.
That being said, if you are really unsure and unhappy, you can always go shopping and try on different styles. Hopefully it confirms what you already bought.

It’s beautiful! I never had the crying bride moment, and had some doubts up until the morning of my wedding when I put it on with veil and makeup. Not everyone cries over their dress, that’s totally normal. It’s very pretty and you look stunning!

I think you made a fabulous choice for your dress. Once it’s fitted to you it will look even better. Congratulations.

it’s not my style (not really into ruching), but it looks very flattering and lovely on you. i *know* my dress is my dress, and i didn’t get all teary-eyed either. it’s not a requirement. all the matters is that you like it an feel beautiful.

Another thing to consider is accessorizing the outfit and that can become fun. Start thinking if you want a sash, cathedral veil, jewelry… that may take the dress you feel “meh” about to being over the top.
Another idea is you can go back to the store and try on the sample again with those items (look at their jewelry, veils, sashes). I would suggest “practicing” your final look. I knew I wanted my hair teased and up in a low bun and did my best hack job on that, wore makeup heavier than normal and bought cheap Target earrings in the style I wanted to “get the final package” feel. I tried veils and placed them where I knew I wanted them on my head and tried on 10 different belts.
If you get excited about this and love the look- than you’re great!
If nothing inspires you either the salon has an ok selection or you may start to realize it’s not the overall look you really wanted.
But I think you look fabulous!

I didn’t have that tearful feeling either. But I couldnt stop thinking about my dress and trying it on again- so thats how I knew it was perfect for me. Also, don’t look at any other dresses. This dress looks amazing on you! And I’m sure you will look amazing in any other dress you try on- so to help reduce any regret, don’t do any more shopping or searching!
I also agree that getting the whole look (veil, belt if you want it etc) will help!

The dress is fabulous! I didn’t cry when I found my dress, but I still adore it!

I think your dress is absolutely gorgeous. Some people aren’t tearful though-nothing wrong with that at all. Every time I watched Say yes to the dress on tv, and the girls found “the one” I always wondered if I would have that feeling-knowing it was the one. Well after trying on 8 dresses, I tried on my dress. The dressing room I was in has no mirror, because they like their brides to be surprised when they walk out to the big mirrors. Well, after putting it on, I knew it was the one, just by looking down at the bottom of the dress. I went out to the mirror, stood on the podium, and that was it. I didn’t cry, but I got a flutter in my heart and almost teared up. Then she put on a veil on me, and that’s all she wrote!

That dress is so gorgeous and looks fabulous on you. I didn’t get the tearful bride moment either. Also, I didn’t feel like a “bride” in it until the day of when I could see the whole picture (hair, hair accessories, makeup, jewelry).
