    I can't even pinpoint the reason, but I didn't "love" my dress at my final fitting last night and I have been thinking about it all day. I am thinking I settled on the wrong dress. Is this normal? SHould I go out and shop a little more to alleviate my worries or will I just make myself crazy? I only have 30 days left!
    I had to chop my head off cause I looked horrid!!

        I love the dress on you. You look Fantastic! My vote would be to keep it. The key is that you have to love it though. It's never too late. My sister changed her mind 2 weeks before her wedding and was able to get a new one and get it altered.

          it looks incredible on you. I experienced the same thing at my last fitting but I went for my final fitting this morning and (thank goodness) I am totally into the dress again... I think it helped that I have been tanning for the past week & half and it just looks better with a tan!! Maybe try that and put all your accessories on including the veil and I think you will love it again!

            Jamie - I totally went through the same thing a few months ago. I wondered if I had looked hard enough and found "the one". As time passed I fell more in love with my dress and now couldn't be happier with it! I haven't had my final fitting yet so we'll see how that goes. As far as you and your dress, it looks beautiful on you!!! I think you should feel fabulous in it (and keep it)!

                Your dress looks gorgeous on you!! I agree with trying it on with the veil, jewelry and shoes etc.. maybe then you will like it better?

                  Wow... everyone is saying keep it... I am leaning more in the direction of keep looking! I think that if you look a bit more and still don't find "the one" then at least you have one that fits you perfectly to wear on your Big Day. However, if you find one you like better, it will have been worth the hassle.

                  For myself, I bought one dress, had the alterations which made it even prettier (they added a tie back) and then I decided that I just didn't "love" it enough and I went looking again. I then found THE ONE and after being married in THE ONE, my hubby says that he liked the 2nd one much better than the 1st (which I sold on Craigslist for a profit so it wasn't a big deal)... also, knowing you are in THE ONE is the best feeling for a Bride. I loved the first dress, it looked lovely, but when I found the 2nd one, there was no doubt in my mind. I hope you can feel that way on your Big Day whichever you choose.

                    I think the dress looks great on you and fits perfectly. If you REALLY feel it is not the dress for you then keep looking. I personally love it.

                      It fits so well, but I can tell from your body language in your pictures that you're not happy. In that case, keep looking. Kinda insane with so little time left yes, but at the very least you'd regain that happy posture that comes from wearing a dress that makes you feel special.
