So ever since I bought my dress, I’ve had some regret about it. Mainly about the beading and the lace isn’t exactly what I liked in dresses….Anyway, I’ve looked at so many dresses online since. I haven’t actually gone in to try any on since though…but when I was looking before I went to 8 or 9 stores….must have tried on over 100 if not more dresses. Nothing looked good on me because I am 5’4″ 205#. This one was the first one I thought I didn’t look like a whale in so I got it. I sort of regret not trying on any dresses from a certain designer that I was in love with a million of their dresses and I think that is what is bothering me too. Anyway, it’s been about 4 months since I bought it (hasn’t come in yet)….and I am freaking out because I keep thinking I should go buy something else. The fact that I cannot find one single real bride in it is bothering me too. On top of it all, I was talking to my sister and she says she doesn’t like the color… Ugh why didn’t you tell me you didn’t like it before when you went with me?!….anyway, it’s gold with an ivory overlay…looked ivory in the bright lights in the store, in the event lighting it looked more gold/champagne….this is it below in the “event lighting” in the store. Anyway, let me know what you think in this poll. FYI: Obviously it is the sample…and since I am a bigger girl it’s a bit tight/not right size. Oh and I can’t go try it on again (or not anytime soon) because it is 5 hrs from where I live right now.

You look amazing in that dress. I went through dress regret waiting for my dress that took forever to come in, but when I put it on again I remembered why I bought it. Also, if YOU like the color, that’s what’s important, not your sister.

You look great in that dress! And no worries, I haven’t seen one person with my dress on…and truly I’m okay with that!
p.s. you are not a whale…or look remotely like one.

@August252012: hey there this it litterallymy first post so bare with me but that is my dress too! it was not at all what i was looking for when I tied it on. Mine wont come in until July so I have been having a lot of dress regret too but theres not too many people out there with it and i havent seen any other dresses with that diagonal lace pattern. You look amazing in it and itll prob be a dress none of your guest have seen. I a bias but i say quit looking is amazing!

I can relate to not having a dress twin, and starting to doubt your decision! But it just means you are an original bride! I love your dress, it is beautiful! Wait until it comes in, try it on, and I bet you will fall in love with it all over again 🙂

I think your dress is stunning and fits you perfectly! To be honest, if you hadn’t said anything I wouldn’t have even known you were “bigger”. You don’t look it!

love the dress….you look amazing in it!!! the color goes beautifully with your skin tone!! I love the diagonal lace panels…they are very unique!!
Don’t worry every bride goes through the dress doubt stage…when you put it on again you’ll go aahh I LOVE IT!!! Ignore your sisters comment….she cant of disliked it that much otherwise she would of told you on the day. (I have lots of sisters…she probably told you that to peee you off for some reason!!!…hehehe)
you tried on lots of dresses so you know what was good or bad on you…..trust your instincts…they were right on the money…you look gorgeous in it!!

I really like it too and think it looks good on you. The only I want to do is rip off that bling near your cleavage though. 🙂

I had to re-read your post because you said you were a bigger girl…totally don’t see that. But at the end of the day, you have to be happy. If you are regretting your dress, go try on other ones. But you look great! 🙂
