Have you ever had dress regret?

Having cold feet about your wedding dress decision is really common!! Continuing to browse and to "see what else is out there" can be a slippery slope, but if you've truly fallen out of love with your dress we definitely recommend calling an audible! Are you innocent or guilty of having dress...

Are you innocent or guilty of having dress regret? If you're guilty - how did you deal with it?

    Nope no dress regret! Gained about 10 lbs from when I bought it to my wedding day (was underweight when I bought it) and was worried it would look bad but it was still the perfect dress on my day!

    Yes i truly do i am guilty of that even though i love my dress but its another dress that i really really want but didnt get it and im having this thought of im missing it. Completely but its too late for me now im 2 months out until this big day . If you feel that you might want to change feel free and do it early so that you'll have the dress that you want.

    I haven't found "the one" yet, I've been to 2 places so far and keep finding two dresses that I like, and if I could put them together it would be the one. But since I'm trying to avoid "settling" and feeling dress regret, I'll keep looking. Fingers crossed for place #3 next weekend! I know I'll have to call it at some point, but I'd like to see what else is out there in my budget before deciding if I'm being too picky.

    So guilty! I have technically only seen my dress once, when I tried it on initially back in February. Now its been custom ordered from Australia and is suppose to arrive end of June. I see all these gorgeous dresses online from other brides and cant help but wonder if I will still love mine! uhhhh

    I haven’t bought my dress. We have five kids, so my dress will literally be bought 2 months before our wedding- so no.

    Yes, I have my dress. I still love my first choice, beautiful qmd elegant. Then a second dress caught my eye and I was not sure about ordering online. When it arrived, I was in love again but in a different way. Now the 2nd dress is my party dress for the reception. Oh wait, there is third dress I found online and could not stop looking at. I am a plus size bride and so this dress should be a no..... I do not understand that word. I had the bridal shop do my measurements and I ordered the thrid dress. When it arrived I cried. So here we go: dress #3= ceremony, dress#1=reception, dress#2=party dress. Yasssss, ladies 3 dress and I am so far under budget with my dresses I can splurge on my shoes.

    Guilty because I forget what it looks like on aside from a picture. I try it on in July for the first time in 11 months.

    Guilty but only just a little. I hate that my Dad spent so much, so it kills me sometimes.

    No I love my dress so much! But I had it held at the bridal salon until a few months before the wedding and when I tried it on again I realized part of the top was gouging my skin. I was so worried I’d end up all scratched up and painful on my wedding, but the seamstress told me she could fix it no problem. Phew!
