I just got a call from the bridal store that my dress is in, yay! I am excited because it’ll be in my size and fit properly. I had really bad dress regret right after I bought it and everytime I looked at myself in the pictures of me wearing my dress, I would get so upset and mad at myself for saying ‘yes’ way too soon. I HATED my dress. Now I like it more, but not sure about *love* yet.
SO my question to all of you bees out there who have had dress regret, did it go away once you put your wedding dress on in your actual size?

Mine did, but it didn’t.. I love my dress, don’t get me wrong, but I am madly in love with Belle from Alfred Angelo, she was well out of budget (I tried her on anyway), but I still dream about her.. *sigh* I do love my pretty though..

@bells: I really hope this happens to me.
@hiroshymatetrastar: I totally get what you mean. I have a feeling that I might be the same way. My mom absolutely loves me dress so much, and that kinda makes me think I’ll keep my first dress even tho I dont totally love it.

@raisedonrobbery: OOH no! I do love my dress, it’s unique and very me, but Belle is very romantic, very bridal to me, my dress is not as *bridal* as I thought it would be…

- Wedding: July 2012 - The Gables Inn, Santa Rosa, CA
When I found my dress, I knew it was perfect…
When I ordered my dress, I was worried I had spent too much…
When I waited for it to arrive, I hated myself for buying so quickly…
When it arrived, I cried for 3 days because it was awful (and way too small!!!)…
When I took it to the seamstress to be altered, I started to think it would be ok, but wasn’t in love anymore…
When I tried it on at my last fitting, I fell in love with it all over again.
On my wedding day, I felt like the prettiest girl in the world.
Dress regret stinks– but for 95% of us, it goes away. Have faith! 🙂

@juliette.eliza: This really helped me, thank you for the postitive journey! Everything you said is exactly how I felt and feel at the moment. My fingers are crossed that dress regret will bugger off when I put my dress on. Not a sample but my actual dress, in my size.

Yes I had major dress regret as well. I even started to secretly shop for another dress. Then I got my dress in my size and the consultant suggested that I tried it with a crinoline. It just added something I can’t explained to the dress. I just fell in love all over again.
So give yourself a chance, the dress regret will probably go away!

@goodgenie: OMG I was also secretly shopping for another dress!! I went to a bridal store to try dresses on, but didn’t tell a soul. I have been on kijiji, and used wedding dress websites. I will try a crinoline, I hope it helps my dress too.
