So this past weekend, I went dress shopping with my mother and grandmother, this was the second time I went (different store this time tho). I tried on so many dresses and my consultant brought one in, and she told me to just try this one on for fun. It was nothing at all like I had pictured, but I tried it on and I really really liked it, loved the skirt, loved the way it flattered my figure etc etc. but I still wasnt sure so I tried on more dresses. Then I decided to put that dress back on, and I just had this moment looking in the mirror that this was my dress. I was having a hard time accepting that since it was so different from anything that I had pictured and not something I would have selected myself, but my gut instincts are usually right lol! So I got measured up and put money down on it!! I was so excited.
But bee’s now on to my question, did anyone else have this fear of what if this isnt the right one, what if I didnt look at enough dresses, when the dress is on I know this is the dress, but looking at it in retrospect it doesnt feel that way.
It probably also doesnt help that I dont have any pictures, I am going back later on this week to try it on again and take some pictures of it 🙂
Anyway I just wanted to see if any of you bee’s had felt this way too.
Thanks Ladies!! 🙂

Um… I worry a little bit about that, just becuase of what I hear on TV and from other girls… LIke, “if you don’t have that A-ha! momment and cry a little, it’s not the one!” but I didn’t have either of those, I just felt so comfortable with my body and that dress and I know how beautiful I look and feel in it, that I wouldn’t change a thing. Yeah, I could have tried on 100 more, maybe found something else, but I don’t want to, I love my dress. That was a 6 months ago, a whole new line of dresses came out, I think about new ones occasionally. But I am set. I hope this helps and it isn’t to scatter-brained.

I went dress shopping for the very first time this past weekend and had a very similar experience. I ended up trying on a dress that I would never have considered and everyone including the dress consultant and owner told me it was the “dress”! I loved it too, but I was just confused at that point b/c it was my 1) first dress shopping experience 2) not a dress I’d remotely considered in the past 3) everyone was telling me it was perfect. I ended up leaving the store without purchasing the dress b/c I needed to clear my head and decide on my own it was my dress and not because everyone else was telling me it’s my dress. Now I can’t stop thinking about it and will most likely end up buying it. Each time I look at other dresses online I keep comparing it to the last dress, so I know it’s the one!
I’m sure you made the right choice if your gut told you to buy it. I bet if you looked at other dresses you would find a reason why none of the dresses are as awesome as the one you bought (I might not suggest doing this if you think this will confuse instead of help you). Also if you think you wouldn’t want to hear anyone tell you negative things about the dress (not that they would but for example) and you find yourself defending the dress then you know you’ve chose the right dress. I’m sure you will look beautiful on your wedding day!
