I bought my dress in November and there was a dress I really wanted to try on the day I went to buy my dress. They didn’t have a size I could even squeeze into so I went ahead and bought my dress. Now I still think about the other dress i couldn’t try on. Im in the same boat as youFrown

Hi Ladies,

 

Well here is my “regrets” story….

 

I went dress shoppng with my mom, aunt and bff…we went to 3 stores on Miracle Mile in Coral Gables,Fl.  I tried on like 7 dresses or so before i found what I THOUGHT was the one… it was the Pronovias White One Style 411

As I was leaving the store I told the lady I wanted to think about it….she offered me $200 off the dress and my BFF was like “girl, you better take it”…so I did.  The minute I got home I was regretting my dicision…did I try on enough dresses, did I just chose it becuase it was the best of what I had tried on?  Anyway, for months I tried to ignore all the negative feeling I was having, hopiong that when I put the dress on again, I would feel differently.

 

Fast forward 4 months…I go for my first fitting….I put on the dress, the belt, the veil, hoping to get THAT feeling…..and….NOTHING!!!!!  but then I try to rationalise againg…its a pretty dress, it looks nice on you….etc….anyway, its time to walk out and show my entourage….I walk out, stand on the pedestal…and what do I get…SILENCE!!!!!!!  Not like a good silince, with jaws dropped etc…nope…JUST SILENCE!!!!!  right then and there I knew…I needed another dress.

 

The very next day, my mom and I went back to the Mile and I teid oun about 10 more dresses…I REFUSED to settle this time…

THis time, I absolutely fell in love with the Justin Alexander Style 8486

 

AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH…….I ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT!!!!!

 

This pic just doesnt do it justice….the buttons on the back are made of Swarosvki crystals…it hugs me in all the right places…just so you have an idea, I am a size 14, my measurements are 39-30-47…I’m kinda hippy…lol

I thought I needed a mermaid dress, to show off my figure….buu this ballgown shows of my figure perfectly.

 

Ladies, my advice to you is…DONT SETTLE…if you have even a 1% doubt…keep looking….dont let your family and friends sway you away from what your gut tells you.

 

I finally said yes to the RIGHT dress and couldnt be happier.

 

I will pick up my dress in January and post some pics then.

@bisaZZa:  I agree with some other PPs the dressis gorgeous but it’s a bit much for a small outdoor wedding. I would try to sell it and wait to buy another one.
