The dress you bought is beautiful!  I love the cutaway detail in the back.

Keep in mind that it is completely normal to second guess your dress…just look at the numerous posts on WB about this very same topic.  Are you just a little unsure about your dress?  Or do you completely hate it?  If it is the later, then yes, go out and try new dresses.  If it is the former, it is probably just the normal jitters everyone seems to get.

Really, it is up to you whether or not you want to try on other dresses.  Ask yourself, do you have the money to purchase another one if you fall in love with it?  Could you eat part of the cost of your original dress in case you cannot sell it for full price?  Do you have the time to order another dress?  I noticed your wedding may or may not be until 2011, could you wait until the dress you ordered comes in and then make the decision?

Whatever you choose, I hope it works out for the best!

Your dress is gorgeous! But I understand having second thoughts about the dress. To me the perfect dress is like te perfect man, although there are millions out there, once you think you found the one, you stop looking!!

The dress you chose is gorgeous! 

About your doubts — I actually went through something very similar with my wedding dress, and I lost sleep over it and was sooo stressed about it for weeks!  I ultimately made the decision not to try on other dresses because I just couldn’t afford to fall in love with another dress/risk not being able to sell what I had already bought.  That said, I think it’s really, really natural to have doubts.  It’s an important purchase and it’s hard not to second-guess it.  But second-guessing and wondering doesn’t mean it’s the wrong dress!  For me, I was reassured that I picked the right dress when I started getting it altered and it really started to fit me and look right, and I fell in love with my dress all over again.

You just have to remind yourself why you loved it so much in the first place…there are always other “perfect” dresses out there, but you made your choice for a reason.  And you’ll look beautiful no matter what!  Good luck!!

I think the dress you picked is stunning!  I can’t really offer an honest opinion until I see what you are comparing it to….Regardless the one you already ordered is incredible!

Stop for a second and remember that feeling that you got when you tried on the dress that you bought. I really wouldn’t look at any other dresses or try on any other dresses until you get to try yours on again. There are hundreds of beautiful dresses out there, sure, but if you’ve already found the one that you love you don’t keep searching right? 🙂

I’m glad I had my wedding already so I can’t drool over your dress with remorse!

I very much like your original dress better than the other two you posted. I think we all do that, but really need to stop looking at other dresses and start focusing on how you’re going to accessorize and do your hairdo with the gorgeous dress you bought. Seriously, it’s perfect!
