Don’t get me wrong. I fell in love with this dress! I just had to have it when I saw it online. Then I saw it in the store and fell in love with it there. BUT!!!!!!! I never tried on a single ball gown style cause I felt my mind was made up. Now after countless hours of wedding shows, I am having second thoughts. I will NEVER get the chance to wear a ball gown ever again. I don’t feel like a princess in this dress. I love it! I feel like a sexy bride, but I just don’t feel right.
I just want to fill this post with 4 letter words!!!! Worst part is my dress came in 2 weeks ago and I’m going to pick it up on Saturday. anyone else have this feeling? What helped you cope? I’ve attached a pic of my dress which I still love, but I’m getting cold feet about it. 🙁

I would wait until you try it on again when you pick it up on Saturday. Remind yourself how you feel in it. Don’t try on a ball gown until you have your dress fresh in your mind again – and ONLY try another dress on if you KNOW your dress is not the dress you want to wear anymore. Also consider cost-wise if you can afford another dress, even if you are planning on selling the one you have. Sometimes it just isn’t feasible to buy another dress if you have already purchased one. You are the only one who knows whether it is the dress for you or not. Good luck!

I chose a similar style and YES, have had the same feelings. But take into consideration budget and remind yourself that you went with your gut the first time and women’s intuition is very powerful.
This past weekend, Fiance and I were shopping for a rehersal dinner dress. I tried on a short navy blue lacy number that reminded me of my dress (just not white and with a train). My Fiance LOVED that blue dress out of all of the ones I tried on. Ended up deciding on another rehersal dinner dress but left confident knowing that my gut told me Fiance would love me in my wedding dress.
Cheer up ! It’s gorgeous !

I felt the same way about my dress. It is also a mermaid cut, then I decided I wanted to do a choreographed dance at the reception and the style isn’t exactly dance-able in. My Fiance suggested I get a 2nd dress for the reception. Is this an option for you?
If not, your wedding is not for a while so maybe you can sell it and get the ballgown you originally wanted.

I’d agree that this could be your reception dress and you could wear a ballgown for the ceremony if you think you’ll regret passing up the chance to wear one. Or, you still have plenty of time to sell this dress and get a new one.
I had a variation of this situation: I wasn’t going to wear a wedding dress at all. I was fine with it, but then got really sad thinking that I’d never have another chance. My mom asked, “Will you regret it later if you don’t?” and I had to admit I would. Now I’m wearing an ivory gown, veil…the whole deal. But no train…that’s where I draw the line 😉
Since you love your first dress, a ‘costume change’ might be the best solution for you. That way you don’t have to choose and you get to rock both looks on your wedding day. Good luck!

I’d say go with your gut instinct about the situation. Like you said, it’s a gorgeous dress… Maybe your just stressing about all the planning. It’s understandable.. You want your wedding day to be perfect! If it helps any, I went through the same thing.. I bought a Galina Signature SY9501 on clearance for $200… which was 80% off. I started worrying what my intentions were at the time though when i did buy it… you know? Like, did i really like this, or was it the price? I had pictures taken, but the quality is pretty terrible.. Whenever I doubt my decision, I put it on, and those unsure feelings fade away. Honestly, If your situation is anything like mine, its just nerves and stress. Plus, I can’t imagine your fiance not thinking you’re beautiful… regardless of what dress you chose to wear on your wedding day.

I think it’s a pretty/classy/elegant dress. There’s no reason to doubt your selection.
