Made a poor decision and bought a dress I wasn't 100% about. It's new never worn. The store doesn't do refunds, exchanges, or store credit. Has anyone been through this? Ugh...my wedding is 5 months away!!Smiley atonished

    Hi Nicole,
    I'm starting to feel like you, my wedding is 13 months away, and I'm questioning my choice, I find myself staring at my dress and shaking my head and saying no!!! I have a girlfriend who used stillwhite also, good luck!

    I bought several dresses online and kept my favourite and sold the others. I listed mine on Facebook Marketplace and they all sold (at a loss). I got about 60% back but these weren't designer dresses. I sold 2 in about 2 months.

    Could you possibly take the dress you bought and have it altered to have the off the shoulder look? Maybe you could...they’re both pretty dresses, but the one you bought is not so different from what you want. Just needs a sleeve added.

    I thought about that...I just love the bodice of the one I want it looks like it has more bling...not sure if alterations would be able to do that..

    I think it could be done. But you need to find a good bridal seamstress.

    Try StillWhite. I bought my dress there and saw a lot of brides selling never worn dresses (they picked a dress before getting a venue, and then the dress didn't go with the style of the wedding). As a shopper, it was my favorite site to look for pre-owned dresses because the interface is super intuitive and the search feature is the best of all the sites I tried. I looked into selling dresses on there and the fees are super reasonable as well. I'd definitely recommend StillWhite!

    I went through the SAME exact thing. After about 4-5 months of staring at pictures of me in my dress (that I already paid for and it's non-refundable), I kept second guessing it and seeing other dresses that I loved. I went back and forth with loving my dress and hating it. I finally bit the bullet, went to a local bridal shop and asked to try on a few specific dresses. I ended up finding dress number two that is now my dress and I have not thought twice about my decision. Unfortunately, I am out of the money from the first dress and am hoping that I'll be able to sell it. If not, I'm just going to have to suck up the cost. But the way I look at it is...we only get to be a bride for one day in our lives. I would've hated to end up not feeling my best in my dress or not loving my dress on the day of. I also think your dress looks similar to the one that you're in love with, but with my experience, I'd say go for the new one if you can't stop thinking about it. Let me also tell you that I'm getting married in 1/25/20 (17 days!!!!) and I ordered my NEW dress on 9/5 and it came in on 10/15. The shop explained to me that the manufacturers have some dresses in certain sizes that can be shipped out by a certain date that we sort of keep on "reserve" for last minute brides. The should be able to look that up. I just got lucky that they had the one that I wanted in my size in that reserve list.


    BUY THE DRESS!

    Id post it on marketplace along with several other websites. poshmark does wedding dresses, still white, etc. id look up preowned bridal dresses and check out those websites because posting it in several places would ensure a quicker sale. it will all work itself out!!
