    It is common to buy a 2nd dress? I am not happy with my dress, just thinking I should have a back-up dress

    I think alot of brides have done that before. If you're not 100% happy and its in your budget, I say go for it! You can always use one as your TTD

      I am finding that when we buy our dresses far in advance we begin to second guess our dress. If you are not happy and your budget says yes then go for it. Change into the 1st at teh reception or do a TTD

        You should be 100% happy with your dress.

        Why doesn't the dress make you happy? Do you not get the "wow" feeling?

          If money allows I say go for it. You want to be 100% happy on your big day and it is better to be safe than sorry!

            If you are not happy with it and can do it then you need to find a dress you absolutely love! This is your day to feel incredible, if this dress doesnt make you feel that way then forget it.

              Well I bought a dress that had the lace I was looking for, but it was strapless. The dress I vison was a deep v-neck front and back. The lady did all the changes but not to the front. I need the dress to be cut more in the front to create the v-neck. To me the dress is a sweatheart neckline. But to sum it up, the dress is not giving me the wow feeling.

                I feel the same as everyone else! I also think its okay to keep one as your TTD! Great idea!

                  I am in the same boat... I got one dress but now (only 6 weeks before my wedding) I am having 2nd thoughts!! Your not alone!! I am debating buying a 2nd dress and trying to sell the other one. If you use ebay you should think about listing the one your not going to wear on there to try to make some of your money back.

                    I was in the same situation. That feeling wont go away, trust me. I bought the dress 4 months ago. I started to realize that it only had that WOW factor in comparison to all the other dresses I tried on that day. I completely described the simple dress that I wanted and the lady in the store said they had nothing like it. I wanted simple and classy and as beautifull as the dress was, it was far from simple. The lady really had me convinced I wouldn't find anything like what I had described so I settled. It really started to bother me and when I pictured myself in the dress it just wasn't the same any more.
                    I went bridesmaid dress shopping last weekend with my sister (not intending to buy a new dress for myself) and as soon as we walked in, there was my dress. Exactly what I wanted to start with. I canceled the old one (the new one was so much cheeper it was worth losing my deposit) and I am so happy now. I didn't think I cared as much as I did but it felt like a huge weight was lifted off my shoulders. I am just thankfull I got what I really wanted before it was too late. I love my new dress!
