Dress regret! How to stop it!?

Hi ladies😊


So I’ve reached that dreaded “dress regret” phase. My wedding is 2 months away and everything is being pulled together beautifully!💜🥰
However, there’s a little part inside of me that isn’t sure about my dress. I absolutely love it with all my heart and it’s literally everything I could have wanted. 🥺
Why do I feel like it’s not my dress? I think most of it stems from my mom, who I think doesn’t really love the dress, or sees me in something different. She’s always making side remarks🥲
Any advice or words of encouragement to get me out of that mindset? 😰The only thing that I know and keeps me in love is that my FH is going to be stunned and I’ll take away his breath no matter what I wear! Dress regret! How to stop it!? 1

    1. For you: Use your words as a mantra: "I absolutely love it with all my heart and it’s literally everything I could have wanted." Repeat that to yourself when you wake up, when you go to sleep, when you are taking a walk, when your negative internal voice pipes up.

    2. For your mom: Stop listening to her, reduce your contact with her, change the subject whenever she brings up anything wedding related, tell her outright you don't want to hear her negative opinions any more. Do whatever it takes to stop her sowing the seeds of dress regret in you. Repeat your mantra again!

    You look absolutely beautiful!! I feel that tiny little feeling you are mentioning as well but I know it is irrational. The "what if's" and doubts start to creep in and they have no place being there!! Comparison is truly the thief of joy. Trust yourself. You made the right decision and you will be gorgeous on your wedding day

    Your dress is absolutely GORGEOUS and looks stunning on you -- so incredibly flattering! I think you need to either tell your mom how her comments are affecting you and that you do not want to hear ANYTHING but ****% positive. (If she's genuinely a good person she might not realize how you are interpreting her comments.) Or, if she likely is saying things on purpose (I truly hope not...), then you need to reduce/limit interactions for your own benefit.

    Good luck! Smiley heart

    You look AMAZING!
    Your mom’s comments, well, I wonder to what end does she make them? You aren’r going to be able to get a new dress, and it’s not like anything is wrong with your dress!
    I know it’s hard to talk to moms sometimes, though. Are you able to respond to her comments next time with “that’s hurtful, mom. I love this dress, I am really excited to wear it!”

    Your dress is beautiful on you! Ignore your mom! You “absolutely love it” and that’s all that matters!!

    Thanks!! I love literally everything. The color, the sleeves, the details on the illusion, it’s modest in front yet a bit daring in the back. The train, the sparkle, the lace, the horse hem, all of it. This is a me dress 100%. My mind just needs to stop being anxious about all of this 😅

    Unfortunately my mothers been nothing but overbearing and negative about most of our wedding. It is what it is and I have to just suck it up. At least I know my dress is perfect now😂😊

    It's gorgeous! So romantic. I love the train especially. You will look beautiful. It is what you picked, and as you yourself have said - everything you've ever wanted! Don't let anyone else get in your head about it. Plus, when you finally see yourself on the day, hair done, makeup done, veil (if any)... you're going to feel so much more than you did even when you bought it.

    Thanks so much! I have cried a couple times putting the veil on, so it’s going to be amazing once I’m all put together! 💜
