I am started to panic and I am scared I made the wrong choice when buying a dress. I am usually a huge thinker and like to sleep on major decisions, but the day I bought my dress I said yes without hesitation and I am scared that was a mistake because now I cant stop thinking about the first dress I loved.
I went to a total of 4 bridal salons. At the second store, I had everyone I needed with me and the first dress I tried on I was ecstatic about - however, I wanted to try on a few more to be sure. At the end of the appointment, I came back to the dress, put a veil on and bawled my eyes out - it was so real, so beautiful, and the song we will be getting married to was playing like it was a sign. BUT, as I mentioned, I needed to take a night to think about it. In the back of my head I wasn't completely satisfied with the top - It was a sweetheart neckline like I wanted, but I was hoping for a deeper V or a little more bling.
After going home I couldn't stop thinking about 2 other specific gowns I had been looking at since I got engaged and became determine to try them on so I made appointments for the following weekend. The first appointment was a bust - they had told me they had the dress I wanted to try in stock, but when I got there it was a completely different dress. Oh well, I moved on.
When arriving at the final salon, I knew it was either going to be the first dress I cried over, or the one I had come here to try on. I had seen enough to know what I wanted. When I put on the dress I was excited - I felt like a princess. I could barely contain my joy as I walked out to show my mom and sister. My mom started bawling right away and I shed a tear or two (but nothing like the first dress). My sister also mentioned she liked it more as well because it felt more "bridal" and not just like a "pretty white dress" to her.
I bought the dress from the last salon and was excited. However, that same night I started to question it - was it the right dress? Did I make the right decision? Should I have taken a day to think about it?
Now, when I look at the two dresses, my stomach curls. I am scared I bought the wrong one. But is it because the experience of the shop wasn't quite the same as the first one (only my mom and sister came with me and "my song" wasn't playing) and that I knew my sister was tired of dress shopping with me so I made a quick decision? Or am I really heartbroken over the first dress?
Now when I look back at the two dresses, I LOVE the top of the dress I bought, and the bottom of it is still ok (doesn't help that the dress was too big) but I also LOVE the bottom of the first dress I bought. There is a no return/refund policy. Do I just suck it up?
