I don’t have dress remorse. I love my dress and feel like a million dollars when I slip it on, however I look at a picture of myself in the sample dress and I cringe. Is this normal? Does anyone else feel this way?
Here is a picture of me in the sample dress. I ordered it in Diamond White and had the train detailed, and obv in my size. I don’t have any pictures of me in my dress, just me in the sample.

I do the same thing! I LOVE my dress but when I look at the pictures of me in the sample -yuck.
You shouldn’t cringe though! It’s a gorgeous dress! And if the sample looks that great on you, you’re going to look stunning!

I know exactly what you mean. In person, the dress is great, but in the photos, I am not so sure. here is a picture of me in the sample.

@corgitales- Thanks! It’s 100% my FI’s style way more than mine so I wonder if I chose it with that in mind.
@mimi06d- I guess we have to go by how we feel in the dress and the pictures will come out amazing!
@kmystery- That dress looks amazing. I think it’s all in our heads, I don’t know about you but I pictures this big over the top ballgown so when I look at it it doesn’t match the picture in my head.

Oh … me too! I doubted my dress after studying pics of myself in it. Then I went back to try it on since I was having major 2nd thoughts. I LOVED it again and felt totally reassured. BUT …. then more time had passed and I started staring at the pics again and started doubting again. If I don’t love it in the pics, then will my wedding day pics come out well? Ugh!
You look absolutely gorgeous in that sample! I can imagine how beautiful you’ll be in your actual dress. I completely understand how you feel, though!

You look amazing in the dress and yes, I know exactly how you feel!! I went dress shopping this past weekend and I only tried on three dresses before I thought I found the one! We didn’t have enough money to hold the dress, but as soon as I told everyone, “I found it!” I started to second guess my decision and wonder if I should shop around a bit more!!
However, the sales associates and consultants say that a lot of women think they’ve sold themselves short and go out in search of another “more perfect,” dress just to end up right back where they started with their original pick!!
Stick with what you have! It’s beautiful and if you feel as great as you say you do in it, it’s perfect 🙂

I feel kind of the same way. I had found a couple dresses I liked and taken pics that I liked of them. The dress I found, I bought the day of and loved it, then when I got home I wasn’t sure if it looked as good as the others in the pictures (too shiny, too heavy…?)

Omg…all of you ladies look AMAZING in your dresses. Honestly, the three dresses you’ve posted are some of the prettiest I’ve seen on the bee, and they all fit you SO WELL. Please get rid of your doubts!! You look REALLY stunning.

@ksnow- You look gorgeous! I don’t think the dress is too shiny at all and with the right lighting and cameras you won’t see any type of shine.

I think you look fabulous in that dress. I don’t understand why you think it’s looks bad.

I love all of your dresses! I wouldn’t worry about how the pic that you took of yourself came out because a lot of other factors may come into play with that (ie lighting). I would just go off of how you felt in the dress.
When I look at the stock pic of my dress it doesn’t really look the same to me mainly because of the color. But I remember how I looked in it and how I felt in it so I don’t regret it..
