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?

    I loved my dress when I bought it and then I see everyone's dress on here and keep second guessing my decision. It's honestly too late as it's a no refund but I still have the moments where I say, "maybe I should have kept looking". I'm hoping when it comes in a couple of months, I'll have the same reaction I did when I first saw it.

    Guilty, luckily it was before I purchased my dress though. I had picked one out and had it in my cart to order and while it sat there I kept thinking about it and then changed my mind. I cleared my cart a few days later. In a way I am glad I did cause it lead me to find my perfect dress and at a decent price.

    Yeah, I bought mine last week and won't see it again until November. Though the dress was on my favorite list on this app and my friend said I lit up the moment I saw myself in it, it doesn't have certain elements I thought I was looking for: back is semi out, i wanted the covered/illusion back, v neck, thought i wanted an illusion neck, wedding is in winter thought i wanted sleeves, got sleeveless. But when I look at the pictures it truly is the best in pictures and I'm reassured that I did the right thing, plus the price was great.

    Innocent, haven't found my dress yet so I prevent myself from having dress regret.

    Not yet! I hope I don’t feel that way. I’m a year out and says yes to the dress 3 weeks ago. I do see a lot of beautiful ones but happy with mine so far.

    I loved my strapless dress, but I don’t know if we were putting it on wrong or if something broke inside, but it kept folding down and I showed a lot of cleavage. We tightened it and everything but it was still doing it. So if I could do it again, I’d probably go with a dress that has straps.

    Yes. I loved how the A-line looked at the salon when the consultant was following me around flaring the dress to lay just right. I realized that i won’t have someone following me all night, I will not be that high maintenance! So now I have to research petticoats and hopefully find an affordable one that gives me the *consultant following you* effect 😂😂😂
    Overall, I still love it and can’t picture another dress being better.

    Guilty i bought my first dress basically because it was on sale and a really good deal. After trying over 20 dresses i just gave up. After it came in and i tried it on again i knew it wasnt my dress. I ended up exchanging it for another one more to my style.

    Sort of. I regret I wasn't able to try on my dream dress at David's bridal before it was discontinued.

    I keep questioning my dress. Like I know I felt really pretty in it but sometimes I imagine it and think, what if it's not actually that pretty or my dream dress? I'm hoping once I try it on again I'll still love it

    Guilty. I thought I brought my dress to early and was nervous about finding something better. But, I definitely think I made the right decision after I stopped looking.

    Kind of guilty? My goal was to buy a dress that I could take home that day. I ended up getting a dress that had to be ordered. I also got my dress in a different color than the one I tried on and they didnt have my color in store. I've been freaking out thinking I won't love it as much in white as I did in blush. It should be here soon though so I can stop worrying.

    Can you go back and re try it on? That's what happened to me and about a month later I went back and re tried it on with a petticoat and loved it even more then the first time.

    I bought it from my first shop. And everyone was so surprised when I said that so I started to worry I got too hasty. Then I would look at the photo of me in the dress and knew I made the right choice.

    Guilty. I bought a dress on sale it was sleek and tight, and I loved in at first but it was right after I had my daughter and was breastfeeding, so a year later it didn't fit at all it was way too small and it was really depressing but I found a new one that I loved even more for the same price I paid for the first one(only $40) so I ended up buying a second one with only a few months to go until the wedding. Luckily my grandmother is a wonderful tailor.
