    Heather, believe me, that dress looks absolutely stunning on you! With hair and makeup and possibly a veil, it will be incredible!

    I know that it can be really hard to decide between dresses - I know I had a hard time! And I still think about the dress that I couldn't afford. But I know that the dress that I chose is fantastic and that on my wedding day, it will be perfect. I'm sure that your dress will be perfect for you too!

        Well, I called the bridal store yesterday and spoke with the manager and she will let me exchange my dress for equal or great value! I am so happy. I have been thinking about that ivory dress since Friday when I tried it on. I just felt wonderful in it. The dress we bought is absolutely gorgeous and it did fit me perfectly, but I can’t stop thinking about how great I felt in the ivory. My mom actually had a dream about me and I was wearing the ivory dress, not the dress we bought! So I have an appointment on Saturday and I am going to get the other dress. The ivory dress costs about $200 less but there are always accessories! I will post pictures this weekend of THE dress!

        Thank you everyone for your support!!! I <3 BDW!

          Heather, I think this is really common. I know I felt that way so I can totally relate! I did something even worse though.... I bought my dress because I only wanted to go shopping once lol. That's right... I hate shopping and I wasn't leaving without a dress lol. I ended up getting something that was the complete opposite of what I thought I wanted. I bought the one that made me feel the best out of all the ones I tried on. I was nervous afterwards because I didn't feel like I LOVED it like I hear so many other brides say. But honestly, once it came time to fittings and the wedding day... I never looked back! I LOVED my dress and I wouldn't have changed it.

          Something else to think about - do you really think that when you put that dress on for your wedding day you'll be thinking "meh, I prob could have found something better"? If the dress makes you feel good in now it then I say stick with it!

          P.S you look awesome in it :)

          Good luck with whatever you choose to do!

              I went out looking at dresses myself on the weekend, I hadn't planned really to try anythign on as I am a large girl I wanted to see what was available, however in one store I was talked into trying a few on, after 4 that I had choose I tried on one the lady brought out for me, it looked beatiful on and I loved it. I have some weight to lose before the wedding and so I didnt buy it but I truly loved it, however it wont go with the color palette I had originally through of as it was ivory/champagne color which I dont think will fit with bright fuesia..... nevermind..... I think the dress is most importatnt and if it fealt right do it! Your dress looks georgeus on you :)

                I got THE dress! I went back to the store yesterday and I got the ivory dress I wanted. Everyone still said they loved my dress I got first, but I LOVED the ivory. It was hard to pick a dress when people kept saying that they liked the ivory on me but liked the other one better but I was questioning if my FI would love the first dress and there is no question with this ivory one. YEAH I GOT A DRESS!

                    You look gorgeous in both dresses, but you look much happier in the ivory dress so it looks as though you have made the best choice.

                    Congratulations!
