@Day_In_The_Life:  I totally get you, I did he exact same thing. I bought my dress, had dress regret and then I didn’t knew what to do since the one I have is beautiful and mad mee smile but to be honest, the empire waist cut does not flatters me as much as the dropped waist.. So idk if I should sell it and get a new one or adjust the one I have to be a dropped waist, gosh! It’s killing me 🙁

Its so great that the mr. Supports u! 🙂 I hope you sell your gown too! Good luck lady! I know you can find “the one” tho not all brides have that “wow” moment you know? I think it all depends on you.. If you see yourself walking down the aisle with it, then that’s it! 🙂

I’m right there with you ladies!  I’ve found many posts about this.  A week after I ordered mine dress regret started to creep in.  Then I found out my friend wore the same dress for her wedding!  So I felt my dress was no longer, ‘original’ (even though it is impossible to not have a dress twin you still don’t think it will be someone you know.)  My dress came in last week.  I tried it on praying I’d be pleasantly surprised and nope, not really!  Although the dress is beautiful I want that feeling every bride is supposed to get.

I plan on putting my dress on craigslist and my brother has convinced me to put it on ebay as well.  He has sold a car to someone in Europe without a test drive!  I’m certain someone out there will buy our dresses.  We probably won’t get the full amount paid but we can try!

Put it on as many websites as possible!! Have you tried ebay or any of the used wedding dress websites? If you do a google search for used wedding dresses, you will find quite a few. Try not to panic, you have time to sell your dress and get (some of) your money back. In the mean time, can you still shop for a new dress before the other one sells?

@Day_In_The_Life:  Yeah, craigslist gets freaking ridiculous spammers, I got those with my dress too! I ended up actually selling it through a preowned wedding dress site, I think it might have been oncewed.com.

Can we see the dress that makes you smile?
