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?

    Almost! But then I looked at pictures from when I said yes to the dress and remembered the feeling of how much I love it.

    I haven’t even started looking at dresses yes, but I won’t buy one until I’m sure

    Whenever I see others beautiful detailed lace dress I think “geez mine is plain”.....when I put it on, I like it and think it’s very pretty but definitely not the show stopping stunner that some of them are. I remind myself it was in my price range, I feel pretty(ish) in it, and it’s one day out of the rest of our lives....

    Guilty, I haven’t found the dress yet, but I’m so indecisive about the kind of dress I want.

    I am guilty of dress envy. I love my dress so I don't regret it but I do look at other ones online and think gosh that's so pretty but once I look at mine again I am all good aha. I think it's that feeling that there's always going to be other options out there we didn't think of or find and when we do it's like wow look at that

    I ordered my dress in the beginning of January and it will be ready in a few weeks. I keep looking at photos I took of me in it and it's hard because it was way too big and didn't sit properly. I'm doing a few alterations to make it what k want. No other dress had the top like the one I chose. So I'm adding fabric and things to make it how I want. My main concern is that it's too simple. It's Aline style and I think I would have wanted it a bit poofier, but I've been told a petociat of sorts can help that. I've stopped looking but so many wedding ads pop up on social media. Once I have it on again I'm sure I'll fall in love all over.

    I can’t even make up my mind on what I want, so I can’t say. I CAN say that after browsing designers on Instagram and Pinterest and wedding planning apps, I just wanna get my dress custom made in hopes that it will come out cheaper. I just haven’t been to the seamstress yet.

    Every time I watch Say Yes to the Dress. But I love my dress and can't wait to wear it.

    Guilty. Currently experiencing that right now, slightly. I love my dress, but I haven't had the opportunity to wear it yet... it's been 2 years since I've bought it. Sad, I know.

    Guilty a few times. I am hoping it those occasional feeling disappear when I get to put it back on.
