If it's just that you are looking at other dresses then don't, problem solved.
If you are really not comfortable in the dress and you are really unsure that it's not the one, then maybe you should try on other dresses to compare.
What ever you decide I am should you will make the right decsion in the end.

I feel so much better!!! I purchased this dress and its paid in full! I think the biggest thing was I also tried on the Ireland dress way more beachy and flowy and everyone in the store was freaking out and loving it and I didnt like it, granted it was 2 sizes too small and I couldnt get the full picture. But I did keep going back to this Harriet dress and I loved it!!! I think the only weird thing about it is the material its an organza like but very different almost a unique tiny box pattern up close.
But Im going to see about the taking a layer of toile(sp?) out underneath and not wear that darn poofy petty coat underneath it adds way too much. I also ordered my veil which they had in stock but Im wondering if the veil is part of the issue Im having!!
thanks everyone for your support!!!! I love this forum!!!!!!!!!!!!

Your situation of being unsure is like something I went through. I went from thinking that I had to have a clean and simple "beach-y" dress just because I am getting married in Jamaica, which pretty much meant nothing too frilly or princessey. But then after we bought my first dress (which was just a very simple strapless a-line), I had a major change of heart after being inspired by some of the other BDW members that had more traditional "bigger" dresses, and now I want to wear what I've envisioned myself in all along since I was just a kid -- I want a full skirt (probably with some kind of pick-ups), and a real train, not to mention a chapel-length veil, reaching all the way down to the ground! Maybe that's why I am going to be a 3 dress bride though: I will still be wearing the 1st dress (after it's shortened to tea length) for my AHR, my 2nd dress was bought specifically to do a TTD (for $75 on eBay), and now I just want to lose a little extra weight before I purchase the 3rd gown, which I'll be wearing for the ceremony (and for our 1st dance at our AHR)!
The bottom line is you have to do what feels right to you; if you want a poofy dress, WEAR ONE! If you love a dress that hugs your curves, WEAR ONE! And if you love the dress you showed us (which is the best of both worlds, in my opinion), then go for it and WEAR IT! You'll hear this a million, zillion times but, IT'S YOUR SPECIAL DAY! Do what makes you feel like the most beautiful bride in the world...
