    Very well written and stated πŸ™‚

    And you are very correct. I think some ladies drive themselves crazy when they keep looking. All they have to remember is how they felt when they tried it on.

    After I chose my dress I banned myself from trying on any other dresses.  That way, no dress regrets!

    I was just saying how despite all the hundreds of dresses I have seen on this site, I can’t even find one I have an interest in trying on. I love my dress so much but I still thought I would like others seeing all the ones on here but nope.

    I doubted my choice until my dress came in and I fell in love all over again.

    Thank you for posting this! I bought my dress last week and I’m not getting married until next summer. I just keep thinking about how many dresses I may come across over the next year and a half and I’m so nervous I’m gonna find one that I like better. I hope I react the same way you did when I finally get my dress. Thank you πŸ™‚

    I doubted my choice and didn’t buy it. Then I tried on like 40 more dresses and eventually realized that dress was the one. And bought it. The next day I had serious dress regret–only because it’s hard to spend so much $$. But it’s mine and I know how amazing I FEEL in it. Even though the photos don’t really do it justice, I know it is perfect for me because of the feeling I get when i wear it.

    @iloveflowers: Ditto.

    I love my dress and I’m totally psyched to post it in a million years when I wear it (okay, I exaggerate) because I have NEVER seen my dress on here. I love that. πŸ™‚

    @topaz925: Very good post.  I was second-guessing my dress a little because I had only been to 2 dress salons.  But like you said, I sit back, close my eyes, and think of my self in that dress.  The weight of it, the softness of the satin, the total ‘princess’ feel, and my imagination of walking down the aisle to the man I love, and I know, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that that is MY dress and the one that will make his heart melt. πŸ™‚

    Hear, hear! I think you just perfectly described what you need to keep in mind here on the forums. While it is an amazing place to get ideas and support, you definitely need to be confident in your own choices.

    I kind of did the same thing Whimsical.Sprite as. My dress was the first one I had ever tried on so I had to try on a few other dresses just to make sure I wouldn’t go home after buying the first and only dress I tried on and think I didn’t give myself any options lol but I knew it was the one. I have never felt as beautiful as I did in that dress. I had a huge smile on my face as well and I just didn’t want to take the dress off. I still wish I could put it on right now lol. Once I left the store I told myself that was it, it’s bought, I felt beautiful and amazing in it, no need to look at any more dresses. Looking at another woman’s dress doesn’t make me rethink things. We all are different and have different tastes and body shape so they look beautiful in their dress and even if I like it, I may not but I do feel beautiful in my dress so why rethink things.  

    Like what Randy from Say Yes to the Dress says, once you find the groom you stop looking and it’s the same thing with the dress.

    I had serious dress regret a few months ago.  I then went and tried on the dress I had 2nd thoughts about and it totally solidified my love for the dress I purchased.  I think everyone is different.  Some have it in the budget for 2 o r 3 or 4 dresses.  I did not and the 2nd dress I loved I couldn’t justify buying when I already had a gorgeous dress that I also loved.  I then came to the conclusion that given the option (and the money) I would wear 12 dresses.  πŸ™‚
