I think your David’s Bridal dress is beautiful!!! I think it’s a great choice!
I completely understand how you feel, I haven’t chosen my dress yet but I’m torn between a ball gown and a more fitted gown. But someone made the comment to me that I can always wear a more form-fitting gown to a special occasion but how often can you wear a ball gown??
It’s the one day we can get away with the ball gown-type dress, right?
anyway, that’s my 2 cents. 🙂

My dress is VERY similar to the one you chose. I chose Pronovias’ Megan.
That being said, Both the dresses to me have the same shape… so the main difference is the tulle and draping…
I think I even tried that Maggie on and I felt that it was like a “less special” version of the one with the tulle.
I think you made a great choice! And yes, alterations will help!

I think it’s gorgeous. I agree with PP…you have got to stop looking. Once you haev made up your mind, don;t look anymore..you will just keep confusing yourself.

I have the same dress as you and am having doubts as well. I never tried on the first dress I fell in love with and can’t get over this nagging doubt so I’m trying that one on this weekend. Happily, I haven’t ordered any dresses yet.

I think we’ve all felt this way at one point or another. You have to remember how you felt in the dress when you decided it was your own and how beautiful it made you feel. Everyones right–youre always going to see dresses that are gorgeous, but when it comes down to it, are they any better than yours?? No way! they had the special magic of making you feel like the most beautiful bride in the world!
When you stand there on your wedding day, you’ll know you made the right decision. Your dress is much more gorgeous than the Maggie, and definitely more detailed. You are going to look stunning!
SO STOP LOOKING 🙂

I have a similar build to you and ended up choosing between a more form fitting dress and a fuller dress as well. I chose the more form fitting gown, and I occassionally had dress regret that I didn’t choose a fuller dress 🙂 Your dress is gorgeous! If you really want it to be more form fitting, take it to a good seamstress and see what she can do about making it a slimmer a-line.

I love your dress! The Maggie one is beautiful too, but I just love the top of the David’s Bridal one. The sweetheart neckline will look fabulous, and I just plain love the bottom off it better than the Maggie one. I think you made the right choice. Stop looking! You’ll drive yourself crazy!
If it helps, I decided to wear my mom’s dress. I altered it to make it my own, but I kept thinking, “what if I just take a sneak peek and look…” I didn’t. I would’ve drove myself crazy with a new, modern dress. I was honoring my mom and loved what my seamstress did with her dress for me. I was ridiculously comfortable the day of the wedding, and now have no regrets. Wear your dress the same way and don’t look back!

I almost got this dress. It is beautiful! I loved it the moment I saw it in their magazine but I ended up getting my other choice but would have been very happy with this dress. I would stick with it. And yes, after you get it fitted to you it will look 10 times better, it sounds like you have the right kind of body for it too. Anyway, its gourgeous, keep it!!!

Been there as well (and occassionally still am)! I just have to push all doubts of my head and stare at MY dress and just say this is THE one I will be wearing and close the book! Tough, but gotta do it! The DB dress beautiful though! It’ll fit your figure amazingly!

my feeling is that you HAVE to love the dress. But…are you the type that is frequently indecicive?
If yes, then I think you may be overthinking the choice. I bet you will look amazing!
If you normally stick to your first choice, and you are having REAL second thoughts (not just rethinking the same details over and over again) then I think you might want to try on a few more to be certain.
Personally, after I bought my dress, I never had a second thought about it. Sure I had thoughts like “maybe I will looks terrible” or “maybe i should have looked at all my options” but then i remember what the dress attendant told me:
“When you try on the right one, you just know!”

@love2lol – you are right about it being the only day where we get to wear a real “princess dress” 🙂 My Fiance actually expected me to get a short dress since we are having an outdoor ceremony. I told him no way because I wanted an beautiful wedding gown!
After reading everything It’s really calming my nerves about having the dress doubts. I am usually really indecisive so I’m just going to tell myself to shut up (haha) and enjoy my princess dress 🙂
Thank you so much for all your advice! It means a lot.
