Rethinking Wedding Dress

Recommended Posts

Since changing things to a DW in the last few months, I have been thinking about looking for a different wedding dress because I was thinking mine just wasn't right for the beach wedding. Well, I had to go into the dress shop today to look over the bridesmaid dresses that had come in last week so I asked what the policy would be on the dress exchange if I decided to go with a different dress. The lady was so nice! She said that because it was a sale dress (got it for a whooping $350, 50% off!!!), they would have to get approval from the owner (who my father actually does work with, so that wasn't a concern to me). But first she said... "let's have you look at the dress again though..."

 

She brought it out and I fell in love with it all over again. I think I actually love it more than I originally did! So...my suggestion is... if you are rethinking the dress you picked out, go back and see it... you may just need to look at it again! smile159.gif

Glad to hear you are in love with the original dress you chose. I fall in love everytime I see my dress too whether in a magazine or just the pic of it I keep hidden in my phone.

I picked out my wedding dress this past week and was thinking I may see something else before the date, May 2011. After reading this, I will stay hopeful and revisit the dress periodically. There is no return on mine so I better keep falling in love!!

Thanks for sharing, that's great advice.

I bought my dress back in Feb and loved it when I saw it.

I then did a big no no, and started looking at dresses again (after I had already purchased mine!) and started to re think my selection.

I went back to show my MOH who lives out of town and didn't see it when purchased.

It was as beautiful as when I tried it on and I still loved it!

 

Great advise Ellabaja1983, thanks for that thread!!!

Cheers,

I'm glad you still like your dress!!!!!!!! :) :) :)

 

At first, I thought I would get a different dress for a destination wedding... but when trying them on, I realized I would always regret it if I didn't get the dress of my dreams. I absolutely love my dress :)

When I get home I will try to load it and post it. I had posted it on the knot back awhile ago and then deleted it so FI didn't see it. He won't be home tonight though, so I can do it again!

I'm glad I could help... If it's been awhile and you are rethinking, I highly recommend you go check out your dress again!

I feel in love with my dress as soon as I seen it. And I may see other dresses but everytime I look at mine again I fall in love again. My FI wants me to wait just in case I see something else I want!! Now why in the world would I do that for? I'll never fall for another dress especially since i'm making the adjustment I really was looking for in a dress.

That's so fantastic that you feel even more sure in your choice now....because no matter WHERE you have your wedding, you should have the dress you love/makes you feel beautiful!

 

I wore a Sottero & Midgley full-scale ballgown, and although I will admit I was very hot, it was every bit the bridal gown of my dreams, so I say GO WITH YOUR HEART ALWAYS!

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
