I have a somewhat simple dress, and I’m totally regertting it already. I’m a jeans and t-shirts no fuss kinda gal, so I always thought I would wear something really simple and flowy, with no veil, and flat sandals, but lately I’ve been thinking, this is the ONLY time I’m ever getting married (hopefully), I deserve to feel like a princess for a day!

 

I bought my dress about a month ago, and it fits me perfectly.  Due to the beading in the back, it zips up at the side, and can’t be taken in, so I’m now furiously dieting so that I can buy a ballgown and not feel bad about it.

My dress is simple but its right for me – I can’t imagine myself in a big poofy dress. Why don’t you try on some princess dresses and see how you feel in them. At least then you’ll know what you really want

@aliciaspinnet: +1, yes – try things on before you make up your mind!

I was dead sure I would want a simple dress. I don’t want to feel like I’m playing dress up on our wedding day, and a big dress just wouldn’t be me. I got the Corrina gown from JCrew and was absolutely certain it was it, until I tried it on… I felt so “Meeh”:

A quick change of heart and I ended up with this dress from Davids Bridal. It’s way more weddingy than what I had ever imagined, but I’m so happy that I did change my mind. While at it, I did also try some more traditional dresses – which wasn’t for me, so I’m glad I don’t have to worry about that any more!

@Laurenplusalex:  I like the dress you posted, but if you’re concerned that you’ll regret not doing something bigger or more elaborate, then I think it’s important that you at least try on some other dresses.  The one you posted would make for a great reception or rehearsal/rehearsal dinner dress as well!

I tried on so many ball gowns but in the end I felt like I was a little girl dressing up in my mums clothes. I kept thinking the same thing thought “this is my one chance to wear one” but I just couldn’t do it. They do look stunning on some women, but it just wasn’t for me. Plus, my sister said I looked like I was drowing in dress in some of them and looked much

My dress is simple and fairly non-bridal but I found it and fell in love and have nevver looked back.  Maybe that’s the way…don’t look back  If you need to look forwrd, like a reception dress or other party dresses.  I’m going to be wearing so many dresses the week  of our wedding lol!

@Laurenplusalex:  That’s very similar to my dress! I went with : http://www1.macys.com/shop/product/xscape-dress-cap-sleeve-lace-evening-gown?ID=749685&CategoryID=5449&LinkType=PDPZ1 and have almost no regrets. I originally purchased a gorgeous Sottero and Midgley dress. It’s not a ball gown, but more of an A-line shape. Unfortunately, due to some health issues I lost some weight, adn I’d already had the gown taken in a lot. Plus we decided to elope and I didn’t want such a fancy or large dress. Once I had my dress altered, I was extremely happy in it, and it was so comfortable! Have you tried on a ballgown or more traditional dress? I suggest trying a few on and seeing what feels right on you. If you really love how a ballgown fits and looks, go for it

Mine is simple. Much more simple than what I had initially planned on getting. I tried on several different styles, and most of which I felt were pretty “me”.. but when I put on my dress I just had this feel of it being capable of being that vintage feeling dress I was looking for. I just felt very “soft and romantic” in it, if that makes sense. 

Here’s the bigger gown, which was my 2nd pick:

 

And this is the more simple dress I chose for my wedding:
