    Wow, I am relieved to see that I am not alone here. I just had my first fitting after being away from home for seven months. I almost cried. I felt as if it was the wrong dress, i actually asked if they ordered a different one.
    I keep reading that some of you girls felt your dress was too simple ... well i am wishing mine was more simple now. I am nervous that it is not traditional enough and was contemplating going hunting for a new dress. Only 40 days till my wedding, so i don't really have time

    I am crossing my fingers and hoping my next fitting (may 1st) goes better.

      I felt the same way about the first dress I bought, I'm a size 0 also and it took forever to pick out my first dress. I think I picked it because it was the first one that looked ok on me, but I wasn't in love with it. Soooo I eneded up buying a second dress dress that I absolutley love and fell in love with the very first time I put it on, so I knew it was the one. Go with your gut feeling, either way you will be beautiful on your special day.

          WOW! I'm sure glad someone brought this up!!! I thought I was the only one who felt like this!!!!!!!!
          And I was so torn because I already paid 60% to order it, and my family loved it.
          And when I went to some friends for their opinion (DONT EVER DO BTW!) I got a lot of negative feed back like, "It really isnt a destination/beach dress" EVENTHOUGH it's from Mori Lee's VOYAGE (destination) line!!!
          Whatev's. Its still not here, and I've even forgotten what it looks like. The pic online doesnt really help. I SURE HOPE I fall in love with it again when I try it on in MY size.
          GL Ladies! Love the Love around here!

            Sooo, I actually am looking for other options for my wedding dress since i am so worried. I will likely post my dress on here or get it shortened and use it for a reception dress :S

            My FI is going to be sooooo mad :s

              I actually just went thru this too. I honestly believe it was the stress talking. I convinced myself that I hated my dress! And this is the dress I hunted down for months and drove all over the state to find cuz I loved it so much! All it took was me to try it on again, and I was back in love with it

                I think it was because I went to a specailty store where they have 1 dress in one size. Nothing was ment for my body..

                When i left I was thinking that I finally understand why people get married in Jeans. I looked a lot better in the clothing I arrived in.

                Ohh I can soo relate!!!! I went with a friend who is also getting married and she is much smaller than me and EVERY dress she tried on was too small and she was feeling awful and I was feeling awful because I knew my turn was coming. I put it off for weeks but finally went in and the first couple of dresses made me so depressed that I almost gave up. Thankfully I kept going and finally got to "the one". I went back 2 more times before committing to it but got the dress I wanted. We'll see if I still want it in Sept when my order comes in.
                This is a great topic but I'm going to take everyone's advice and go in to the fitting with make-up & updo. I want to still love my dress when I try it on again.

                  I definitely felt the same way!! It's so difficult when you try on all the dresses in sizes that are not your own...and try to picture how it will look it your size! I had my last fitting last week...and I felt just so so about my dress! Wondering if I had made a mistake...but too late to change it now!! I'm sure with the necklace, hair and makeup it will be all different!!

                    I can def relate. The only thing is the dress I purchased was not the dress I loved. It was the dress my mom liked though. I had my fitting and going for my second on Wed. I am trying to convince myself that it is not what I am wearing that it is important its the person waiting for me down the isle that will make my day special.... (But it is a sucky feeling to know I am not thrilled about the dress I am wearing) So I say if you are unsure and have the money go for another dress that you love....

                      I'm very indecisive and after a lot of dress shopping I finally found the one i wanted.  It was beautiful!  And now weeks later I see other ones and I'm second guessing myself.  I'm sure it will look great though and I just need to stop stressing.
