Oh No :-( I don't think I love my Dress anymore.....UPDATED with NEW DRESS! #36
Posted 13 April 2009 - 07:24 PM
Sort of like you, my aunt bought my dress (she has no children) and even though she didn't come pick it out I sent her a picture of it.. and now I don't know what to do? My new dress is big and poofy and has a decent train so I completely want to wear it on the beach for the ceremony but it might be too much for the reception. If i bought the other one myself, I could wear both - but isn't that pretty rude to my aunt? I could just wear the new one, but I think I will get so hot and it will be sort of hard to dance with it bustled... so now I'm still clueless..

Who knows? You may go and try one a dress one day, and it will not only fit like a glove, but you will feel like a bride, too! And if all the stars align, you might even get it on sale!
You understandably don't want to hurt anyone's feelings, but you are entitled to be 100% completely, unapologetically "selfish" about your appearance on your wedding day -- period!
All the best of luck in your search, and be sure to post picks of the dress you find of the "Show us your Dress" thread!
Can't wait to see!

Well, I did call Davids and the girl was (Surprising) very nice and helpful. She said I can exchange it for something of equal or greater value and if the new dress costs less, I will have to make it up in accessories. All of that was exactly what I wanted to hear!!
I called both of my MOH's....And they are both very supportive and offered to go back with me. I haven't told my mom yet. I don't think she will be mad or anything, I just feel bad because I know I drov her crazy the first time..LOL I know I am short on time, but I don't think I am gonna go this week because I have a visit from Our favorite Aunt and eww , who wants to try a White dress on with her around?
Lisa, I feel the same way you did, getting caught up in everyone's tears and "Oh thats the one's"..And I was also rushing. I'm not super girly and I like to make my decision and move on..But I have envisioned my wedding since I was a kid and Although I realize this isn't a traditional wedding..I wanted something a little bigger...I described it to my sister just now, when she asked what I wanted, i said, "Somethin I have to lift up to walk around..LOL"
My dress is beautiful and light and it will be perfect for Mexico..But who cares if I don't love it
So...If I feel better by Wednesday, I may make an appointment for Thursday night :-) If not, I won't go until Tuesday of next week and who knows, I may decide to keep my dress, although I doubt it.
I need to just try some other dresses.
Thanks for all of the advice and stories! :-)
Here is the dress I currently have:

But I was never dead set on it.
I guess I feel like I wasted alot of peoples time...And now it;s going to be a big rush to get another dress when mine is in my room right now.
Even with a veil, It still isn't the style of dress I have in my head. And Lisa you are def right. I already planned to buy an inexpensive veil because the Gazebo at dreams is really windy most of the time. If I luck out that day and I can actually wear it down the Aisle, I will be shocked. So i figured I won't spend and arm and leg on a really expensive veil in case I can't wear it.
I really appreciate the advice girls, but I think we all know what we want.
My mistake is i settled for this dress because I wanted another thing to cross off my list, instead of going back another day to try on a couple more.
My Consultant is going to think I'm crazy too! She was the best thing about David's Bridal and she was a tremendous help.
When I left with my Dress on Thursday night we were talking and I showed her my shoes and she was so happy it came in early....Now I'll be back! LOL
I gotta tell ya, I am getting really excited again. I am getting a second shot at something i got wrong the first time :-)
