My mom and I went dress shopping back in December. I never really felt any dress was the ‘one’ so we chose this one based on it being the best choice out of our options. It was an important day b/c my mom lives on the east coast and I’m in the midwest so this was the one time we could get together. Now I’m second guessing my dress choice. I just don’t LOVE it. But I’ve never really seen a dress I loved. You all look beautiful in your pics on here… I just don’t feel beautiful. I’m excited more about the accessories than the dress. Help? Should I go with a friend and choose another? Or just know that I’m okay with this one and am just not one of those ‘I LOVe it and am crying’ type of people? I’m so confused. LOL.

I know how you feel! I never had that ‘love’ relationship with my dress. I really have dress envy sometimes. But then, I’m not really a Say Yes to the Dress, boo hoo, reaction type person either. I just wanted it to be pretty and look good.
Your dress is so pretty! I really liked one almost exactly like it and almost chose it but alterations were too much.

Did you spend a lot on it? Maybe you can consign it and get something different?

Hmmm….I like the simplicity of this dress. Accessories will compliment it well.
What I really find beautiful with brides via pictures and past weddings that I have attended is when the Bride her beauty shines though….and not the DRESS shines. This is one dress that will allow you to be the centerpiece.
Imagine yourself all done up with hair, makeup, accessories and shoes and your whole look will change. Also your happiness and glow on that day will add beauty as well.
Hope this helps!

Your dress is lovely. If you want to make more of a statement with it, you could try adding a sash and/or a brooch.

I think the dress is lovely. If it were me… I’d probably go with a friend and try more one just to see if something made me more excited. Even if you’re not a crier or anything, it just seems you should feel better about it.

It must be hard not loving your dress. If it helps any, you look very beautiful in it. Try and see if you can sell it – there are probably a bazillion websites online which sell dresses, not to mention the classifieds here on the hive.
Good luck with whatever you do!

DB said that I could exchange it if I wanted since it hasn’t been altered at all and still has the tags on it. Tilapia, that’s exactly what my mom said! LOL! She said I should wear the dress, not have the dress ‘wear’ me.

I just bit the bullet and ordered another dress online. If I don’t like it, I can return it. And with tax and shipping it came to less than $300! So we’ll see, this way I’ll be able to tell if my dress is really the ‘one’ or not.
