aubreyanne:  You look like you love it in the pics. I get it, I put a deposit down on a dress and when I look at pics I second guess myself. I try to remember how I felt in the dress… I felt wonderful  in the dress & my bridesmaids loved it too. Confession… Last week I made more dress appointments at 2 different salons, I’m so ashamed, I haven’t told anyone else and I’m going by myself…believe me I get it lol

As a chick who has two dresses and can’t make up her mind, if its not the one, then get a new one. I spent months freaking out about my purchase!

You look gorgeous and your face looks like it’s saying you found your dress. It looks beautiful on you! Do yourself a favor and try on the dress you picked again and picture yourself wearing it at the wedding. Also, keep in mind alterations will change the look of your dress (if you even need any) and you will feel even more like it’s yours! Trying it on again will give you a better idea if you love it and are freaking out over nothing or if you purchased too soon. If you decide you don’t love it and won’t be thrilled wearing it at your wedding, then I second @mrsfiddlesticks. I decided my first dress wasn’t the one after purchasing it way too soon and bought another. Now I’m obsessed with my new pic. I can’t stop looking at it! You can always sell your dress if you change your mind.

My Fiance had to make me go back and buy the dress I fell in love with bc it was $1000 over buget, I fought with myself for weeks about spending that much on a dress I would only wear once but when I went back and tried it on again I knew that it was the ONE.

You look absolutely gorgeous in that dress and your face says its the one, Just go for it. You won’t regret it!

$10 over budget sounds totally reasonable! If you love the dress, go for it!

You look so happy and glowing and beautiful! I definitely think that is your dress.

First of all you look so incredibly beautiful in that dress. 

Second, I hear many women fretting and second-guessing themselves over the money they’ll potentially spend on a dress they’re only going to wear once. All I can think is… one of these days you’ll look at your wedding pictures, see yourself in an incredible dress, how beautiful you looked… think of the memories you made with the ones you love while wearing it… and that dress is going to be priceless. Not only to you but also your future (or present) children and grandchildren.

Given that perspective it’s money well spent.

First of all it is a lovely dress and I think it will be fine for an outdoor ceremony, it is light and flowy looking. Second stop looking at other dresses and stop nitpicking it. We can all talk ourselves out of a dress. I had put the deposit down on mine but told them not to order it for a month and I kept second guessing myself, still do now, but I remember how much I loved it when I put it on and ready or not it is my dress!
