I think the dress is very pretty but if you are doubting it this much then I think you may want to look a little more. Don’t sell the dress yet because after looking you may not find anything you like as much as the dress you already have. Don’t worry about telling you mom and Maid/Matron of Honor, I guarantee they want you to be happy and will support you no matter what!

Firstly, I don’t think that its too much dress for an outdoor wedding. Too much dress, in my opinion, comes from overwhelming embelishments or detailing that doesn’t belong outdoors. Also, I chose “less dress” for my outdoor wedding and started second guessing myself because I thought maybe I should have “gone for it” since it is the the one and only chance I’ve had to wear a formal gown. 

What made me finally relax and enjoy the dress I purchased, though, was looking around and realizing how much  a) I didn’t like the other options and b) didn’t want to spend a ton of money on a dress I “kind of” liked more than the one I already had fallen in love with originally. So, I would suggest poking your head in a few salons and if you fall in love with something else, so be it. If not, you’ll know for sure that this is your dress! 🙂

You can’t cheat on a dress, afterall.

OMG. Just sell it. it sounds like its not what you really wanted. Don’t worry about hurt feelings. Myself, and so many other ladies on here know exactly what you are going through and have been there before! It’s okay, you need to be comfortable and happy and feel like a million bucks! You still have plenty of time to try on dresses, and you’ll find just the right one. Maybe you grab it on discount at another sample sale, or nab some savings by buying off the rack, or a discontinued dress that’s perfect. Or maybe you buy from someone on here or another site! 


(PS-Incidentally, PM me if you are interested in tea-length dress perfect for an outdoor wedding that’s a bit more casual feeling. It was my first dress, same story as yours, almost!)

By The Way, I agree with the first response that said don’t sell this one till you find another one, because you might look around and realize that it really is what you wanted!
