Second Guessing My Dress

Soon2BSmith, on August 3, 2019 at 9:12 PM Posted in Wedding Attire 0 5

I've purchased a dress that's is kinda the opposite of what I thought I wanted. While me and my FH was talking, he makes a statement that he can't wait to see me in my dress and he already has an idea of what it will look like. So, I ask him how does he know. He say, that while me and him watch Say Yes To The Dress together, every episode we watch, I state what I want in a dress. He says I always say, "Long sleeves, high neck, mermaid style ( because he likes mermaids), or something with a sexy back.'

I purchased a sweetheart, sleeveless, and kind of a fit and flare dress. (Sigh) I honestly DID NOT EVEN TRY ON anything that I said I initially wanted.

My dress was half the budget, so I'm wondering if I should go and look again or maybe buy a reception dress that maybe what I initially wanted.

I should also say, I went dress shopping alone because, I did not want my family opinions to sway my opinion.

So confused!

    Once you start getting other opinions, your own opinion can be easily swayed. I'm sure FH will love anything you wear, regardless if it fit his "vision" Smiley smile

    You bought the dress for a reason! Trust yourself! ❤ sometimes, what we like doesn't look the same when we have it on.
    I love ballgowns, but they completely swallow me up.

    I think your judgement was sound at purchase. I too, went alone to get my dress.
    You are placing to much stress on yourself, in my opinion. I just bet your dress is beautiful on you!

    Most likely, he’s going to think you’re the most beautiful person in the room no matter what you’re wearing. You picked the dress for a reason. I too suffered from major dress doubts but I realized that whatever I was wearing, my FH would love it simply because I was the one wearing it.
