Oh, that dress is beautiful!  You look amazing in it.  It’s very flowy and very romantic.  I think what you’re feeling is normal!  Seriously, I think 75% of brides have dress regret (I did – and still do – but I think it’s more nerves than anything)!!

To answer your post : I have no idea why you are having these regrets!! You look great in the dress.  I don’t think your too short – once it is hemmed/comes in your size, it should look even better.

I think the dress is gorgeous!  And you do look very elegant!  I always associate lace and beading with elegant.  To me the dress looks vintagey and romantic, its a great choice.  I may not be flowy but it is definitely romantic.  Maybe you need to see yourself without the glasses and you will feel better.

I think the dress is beautiful and you look amazing in it! I bet the regrets are because it is the dress that you are getting married in which is a crazy thought!

I think you look beautiful in the dress.  I too just put the “downpayment” on my dress and I have regrets here and there, wondering if I should have gone to a different style, but in the end I realize, it’s the very first dress I fell in love with and that should mean something, right? =) Regret is normal, it’s like having cold feet, you’ll get over it and you’ll be absolutely fine!!

If it helps, I’d say go back and try it on again..  It will help with really getting a good feel of the dress.

That dress looks VERY elegant on you!!! Are you going to wear your glasses on your wedding day? I wore mine dress shopping and I feltsilly when I had the dress and veil on because of them. I couldn’t picture myself all done up on my wedding day. But on your wedding day, your makeup and hair will be done, the dress will fit you perfectly! Even like that it looks stunning and I LOVE the sweetheart neckline you added. I should also just say, I don’t like giving someone negative opinions,so I ONLY comment on the ones that I truly love and I think the person should keep their dress!!!!! I really honestly think this dress looks fantastic on you!

I love the dress!  I also agree that it is flowy and romantic.  We always will second guess ourselves (myself included :S)

You look beautiful in the dress! It is definitely romantic and flowy and once it is in your size and altered it will fit closer to your body and show off your shape. You won’t feel like a kid then!

I think you look great! I had the same dilemma. I fell in love with the first dress I tried on but my sister talked me out of it because it had one shoulder strap. I went with a beautiful dress but it was only in a pewter color and I ordered it in Ivory /pewter so I didn’t know exactly how that color was was going to look on me. I had nightmares that it came in as yellow and that I hated it. I also wondered if I made the wrong decision. When the shop called me to tell me my dress was in, I went back to try it on. I fell in love with it and didn’t want to take it off. Here’s a picture!

I think it’s great!  It’s hard to feel completely like a bride when you’re not all done up, so I think that when you have your hair done and makeup and really see how the whole time comes together, you’ll feel much better about it.

We all second-guess ourselves, it’s stressful, but it’s normal!
