I totally had second thoughts. But then I tried mine on again and fell in love. Go with your gut. And stop looking at other people’s photos! πŸ™‚ Yours is gorgeous. And it’s YOURS. Enjoy it!

I agree.  I think everyone goes through a second guessing moment after they get their dress.  I definitely had one!  Your dress is super cute, though, and I’m sure you’ll look very bride-y in it.  Plus, you don’t want something frilly and lacey and with a big, long train for an outdoor wedding, right?  Your current dress is perfect!

P.S.  It’s so cool to see that you’re from Red Lodge!  I went to school in Helena, and one of my best college friends is from Red Lodge.  Where are you getting married?

I LOVE that dress! I think for the type of wedding you described it will be perfect. Short dresses have always held a spot in my heart and I so wish I was wearing one (or could wear one for the reception). If you’re looking to jazz it up, maybe add a cute white belt. I think all brides go through that "Oh gosh did I make the right decision?" phase. In your case, you have a beautiful dress and I don’t think you have anything to worry about πŸ™‚

I’m having second thoughts too- but my wedding is like 7 months away. I’m getting my dress custom made and a dress from an episode of a Disney Channel show is the one that is making me have second thoughts. Disney Channel?- I know.

I’m going to stick with what I have but its not uncommon for brides to have 2 dresses. A girl I went to high school with wore one dress for the wedding and the other for the reception.

Your dress is gorgeous!!

I think it’s really easy to have second thoughts about anything wedding, but especially the dress, just because there are so many beautiful options out there. I had to make myself just stop looking at other people’s dress pics because I was having too many second thoughts! Just remember that this is the dress you picked when you went with your gut, and you wouldn’t want a huge frothy dress for an outdoor wedding anyway–it would get annoying.

If you want to look more "bridal" maybe think about a bigger veil or fancier bouquet? But this dress you already have is perfectly beautiful and bridal!

You’re fine! We all have freakout moments and you’ll look great in that.

I totally sympathize. I am having 2nd thoughts too, but that’s because I ordered my dress 1.5 yrs before my wedding, right when I got engaged! It will come in about 1 yr before my wedding. I am just hoping I will fall back in love when I try it on. I think it’s totally normal. Plus, if you do want another dress, you could get a long, more fancy one for the ceremony and wear this one for the reception, or vice versa. Either way, I think this is a very classy dress and I approve. πŸ™‚

I think a lot of ppl have second thoughts! I know I did πŸ™‚  Its hard to not obsess over the decision and I went back and forth a million times, but ended up very happily wearing the dress I originally bought!

I think your dress is really pretty – but that said, if you feel like you might want to go a more traditional route, why not go and try on some longer dresses and see how you feel about sticking with the original vs. trying to find something new….if there is a  sample sale, then you def. have time to get a new one if you want it.

i had second thoughts, especially since my dress was the thing we splurged on most. but each time i went back for a fitting, i re-realized that it was just what i was looking for.

 your dress is gorgeous. its so beautiful for an outdoor wedding and you have a lot more freedom to spruce it up with some non-traditional jewelry and other accessories compared to if you had a standard ball gown or something, you know? i say stick with it πŸ™‚
