You could always wear two dresses: one for the ceremony and one for the reception. I did this and I was able to wear both styles I liked (modified mermaid and ball gown).

You should look around for other dresses. If you don’t find anything else you like, then great! You’ve already got a lovely dress to wear. BUT if you do find that perfect dress, then you should go for it. While it’s only a dress and years from now it won’t matter, it’s clearly bothering you now and you want to enjoy getting married, not spend your time being bummed you settled on a dress. You should feel fab, not worry what other people think. And if anyone gives you crap for switching dresses, again, it’s not the end of the world. It’s just a dress and they aren’t the one wearing it, you are. 🙂

Do what makes you happy. I bought a dress because it was a good deal and the next day felt a buttload of regret, and did until I gave myself permission to choose another dress. I feel silly for caring this much, but I do; you can’t change how you feel. 

Well-meaning friends and family did the same thing to me and told me the dress was beautiful and I looked amazing in it, and why did I want another dress? They didn’t stop this until I put my foot down and told them it wasn’t about how I looked in the dress, it was how I felt in it, and that wasn’t going to change. It’s your wedding and your decision, you have to listen to yourself.
