Did it happen to one of you?

Recommended Posts

Just don't know what to do. Like every bride to be, I searched and found the perfect dress. I had to special ordered it and I waited for it for 5 months! Yesterday, I got a phone call... my dress has arrived. I was so excited that I decided to go right away and try it on!!! It fits perfectly fine, except little "normal" alterations that have to be done. The thing is... I find it soooooo ordinary now!!! The dress is of course all paid for, so I can't change unless I loose my money and buy another one. Am I the only one that this happened to?

You are definitely NOT the only one!!

There are lots of brides on here that didn't LOVE their dress when they first tried it on. But trust me, I am 99.9% sure that the day of your wedding when you put that on, with your hair done, make-up, etc you will feel anything but ordinary!!

If you are adamant that you it's too ordinary for you, is there anyway you can alter it to make it less so??

 

Also...as a Noob, I will let this one slide...but once you get familiar with us crazy picture whores you will realize you MUST ALWAYS include pictures!!!

Awhh I am sorry you feel this way. I'm sure the dress is absolutely gorgeous. I second what BachataBride said, maybe you could alter it differently to make it "less" ordinary? They could add beading or crystals (if you are into that sort of stuff).

NOOO I am in the same boat. Luckily for me I only paid $100.00 which I was soo happy about at the begining. I thought what a deal $100.00 for my wedding dress, and my FI was soo happy LOL. Now I think I want something else and I only have just under 3mths to find one. It takes 4-5mths to order a new one which I didn't know. So I am left to find one off the rack and alter it. The dresses that are normally on the rack are a size 10-12 and I need a size 6 with some alterations sad.gif AHHH and of course the 2 out of 4 dresses I love are a Maggie dress (never heard of her before). Wish me luck!! Good luck to you on finding a new dress. Couldn't you add somethig to your dress to spoce it up? Possibly use your dress you have now for TTD or try and sell it on Kiijii or e-bay or back to the store??

OMG I feel the same way. While I love parts of my gown i think the front looks really stupid. but i have my first fitting next week and my dress is waaaay to big so hopefully next week it'll look better to me. But if not oh well I'm stuck with it. Its a Mori lee and I like it one day and hate it the next...

Maybe once its completely altered you'll love it again? If you still think its plain I would just try to add accessories.

 

And like Amanda said you cant be posting about your dress and not include pics for us. lol

I added accessories to it but it did not did the trick for me. Maybe I was expecting too much and now I am disapointed... I made another appointment is two weeks and I will go with make up, hair up, accessories etc... and then If I still don't like it... well I will probably cry like a big baby lol

I would love to post pictures, but the boutique where I bought the dress does not allow clients to take pictures!!! I am trying to find it on line and promise that I will post the link if I found it.

Thank you all for your support.

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
