    just stop looking at other dresses (easier said than done right) but seriously just when you see another dress think “oh thats nice but it doesn’t have ___ that I like about mine” or “I doubt I could afford it” (and don’t try to find out if you could!). i’m sure the dress you picked it the right one for you…after all you picked it for a reason…so stop second guessing

    The pics still aren’t working.  

    I STILL run hot and cold with my dress.  I really liked it, but especially after a bad experience with the alterations, I should have bought something else instead.  But, I felt great wearing it, even with my doubts, the pictures look good and while I still sometimes think I should have kept looking for a different dress, in the end, it doesn’t matter.  It’s not keeping me up at night.  I hope your doubts aren’t keeping you up.

    I think that your doubts are totally normal. I made a super quick decision in purchasing my gown and it really wasn’t “me” and I never felt that it was all along. I bought my second gown and have never looked back (even though I still look at dress pictures on weddingbee, I have not doubted my decision once).

    After I visited several stores and my dress still comes up on top.  I first found my dress in the very beginning of engagement and I went through all the shopping around, etc. and I still came back to it.  Even after I ordered my dress, I took my parents (who aren’t local) to a bridal shop that has my dress and tried on many dresses and it was still the best dress.  Now I just can’t wait for the dress to come in!

    I agree with @futuredrbraun as far as never looking back after buying the second dress.  I bought a beautiful dress early on after the engagement that actually WAS me, but had some issues with the bridal shop making promises about the dress (I had to buy the sample because the style was discontinued) so I ended up looking for Plan B 45 days or so out from our September wedding.  I found a dress I loved and never thought twice about buying it.  I DID have doubts about the first dress and not a single one about the second.  I didn’t set out to be a two dress bride, but I have zero regrets that I was.  Trust me…if you LOVE your dress you should not have any doubts.  I would wear my second dress every day if I could…you should feel the same way. 

    Don’t let time be a factor…I bought the sample and had it altered without an issue, so you can get a different dress if you want (and can afford) it.  Best of luck with your decision!
