    Hey all!! I know there are a bunch of brides out there worried that they chose the wrong dress and I am def one of them. Im so nervous, stressed and hesitant. Even though there prob. is not much I can do now, as I have already ordered the dress back in March and it already came in!! And I went and tried it on again and it is pretty and I like it a lot. But Im worried how do I know its right? I loved too many and I did keep going back to this one. But I only tried on maybe 12 dresses or so. I dunno. Its a once in a life time thing and Im just worried. There are sooo many dresses out there, Im really concerned and worried I made the wrong decision!

    I would love to hear what everyone thinks! Thanks so much!!!

    This is my dress its a maggie.. the Harriet

        I think that it's a beautiful dress! Not too poofy at all. Maybe if you're unsure you could always try on a few other dresses to compare? That might reinforce your decision or give you othe options. All in all though I think that it's a great dress but it comes down to how you feel about it! Make sure that you don't settle if you don't think it's right.

          That dress is beautiful hun! And I do not think it is at all poofy...it's perfect! For me, I just felt a connection to the dress, silly, right? Haha but it just felt right!

              It's not poofy. It's beautiful! If you're concerned it's too "big" you may consider having the train shortened, that wouldn't be a major haul-over and would make it a bit lighter.

                No, I don't think it's too poofy... mine was poofier than that, and although it got a little toasty at times, it made me feel like a princess on my wedding day. I loved it! The slimmer fitting, more light-weight dresses just weren't for me. If this is the dress you love, then that's all that matters!! :)

                  That dress is beautiful and definitely not t0o poofy :).
                  If you love the dress, don't worry at all about it being too poofy for a DW - it is your wedding and you should wear whatever you want no matter where it is :).
                  When I got my dress, everyone convinced me not to get anything poofy or with a train - then I found this other poofy dress I fell in love with and I ended up buying that one at the last minute and am so happy I went with what I wanted - and everyone said it looked beautiful even though they originally told me it was a bad idea to have a train or a poofy dress on the beach..
                  You do have time to get another dress if you are unsure though - I would try going to try on some other dresses and see - either it'll confirm that this is the dress for you or if you find something you like better, at least there is still time to change things..

                    I love that dress and I do not think that it is too poofy at all! I think you should follow your heart and you will make the right choice!
