I’m hoping someone out there can possibly relate to what I feel right now.
I found what I thought was THE dress in May I couldn’t wait had to have it bought and I have put it on 3 times since the day I bought it and I don’t feel as pretty as I did during the 6 months I obsessed over it.
I recently (within the past 3 days) started looking at other and found one I love love love!! I mean I know I can’t exactly keep on purchasing dresses. I’m a big girl i love my dress but I have a huge bust and I’m just afraid its not going to make me look beautiful.
I just bought my undergarments over the weekend in hope that when I put my dress on again my dress regret will subside. It didn’t help that I made my impulse decision without my mother and on top of that my grandmother pointed out the dress i SHOULD have picked….
I really don’t want this to be a mistake…:(
I’m posting a picture of the dress I bought as well as the one I love now….

Oh, you poor girl! That is something I worry about A LOT.
I think the top dress is really beautiful.
If you’re worried about falling out, which I can totally relate to, perhaps they can add some lace caps to the dress or another similar alteration.

I totally understand what you’re saying. Both dresses are beautiful, ultimately you have to decide which dress you really want to wear on the big day. Have you tried on the dress you think you want? Maybe try them on back to back and see how you feel. 🙂

I appreciate the comments ladies cause this is one thing I didn’t think would be hard and I’m like look where I am now!
I was thinking cause my colors are espresso and tealness from Alfred Angelo and I ordered my dress with an ivory sash in worst case scenario cause they are taking the ivory sash off the dress I can use that and do some sort of a 50s style type halter around my neck which may help with the bust issue.
I just hope it all works out and I guess what they say is right once you make your decision let it be and stop looking! Its like everything else in this world, there will be something newer and better out in a week or month.
I just got a little self conscious about the strapless thing my mom thinks I should cover my arms and that combined with a big bust has got me paranoid.

Oh…so sorry to hear you’re stressing!! You are not alone… I went through this, too. After engagement, I started looking at dresses and got obsessed with one (Allure 8700). I went by myself, tried it on, and bought it. I had tried a few other dresses, but I was convinced I wanted this dress because it was so fun and fabulous… and it is! But after a few weeks, I just wanted to look at more dresses. (Well, ok, I admit, truth is that I also put on a few winter pounds and wanted to see other dresses that could accomodate my extra inches, lol!) This opened a pandora’s box! I went looking at dresses over and over all over the place… I began to realize that I also wanted certain other people to be involved in the experience and help me with the choice, so I had friends, stepdaughters, mom, dad, and fiance come with me (not all at the same time but on different dress visits). This turned out to be so awesome! I did end up letting go of my first dress obsession (which now I have to try to sell), but I also ended up finding a dress I feel really good about and that I don’t doubt one bit (Allure 8815).
Both dresses you picked are gorgeous! Ultimately, though, you need to feel good about your dress decision. Try on both and get pictures of yourself in each so you can see them side by side and even post on here and do a poll (if you’d like strangers’ opinions). It helped me a lot. Hope this helps you! Good luck 🙂

what is it that you dont like about the first dress? both are beautiful but you need to decide which one you want to wear on your special day. it sounds like the 2nd dress is the one you really want. you dont want to have regrets about the dress because it is the centerpiece of the wedding. but you need to do what is right for you. you can always sell the 1st dress online if you choose to go with the second one.

oo i love the first dress too!! i too have dress regret but i look at it as, i got a hell of a deal, im not buying another one. yes its the most important dress of our lives but at the same time whats more important…having the dress of your dreams or being in debt because you bought 2 dresses…you could always see if you can sell the one you bought to replace the one you want but it will be rough.
