    My dress came in really early and now I'm having second thoughts.  I thought I liked it when I first bought it, but now I just don't know.

      What are the reasons?  Do you have another dress you like better?

        I kind of feel the same way.  The sample size they had was a few sizes bigger than what I ordered, so I didn't feel like it was as flattering around my hips when the one I ordered came in.

          Okay here it is.  It came in and they told me they need to let it out in the waist, so it is wrinkling in the back.  I think I'm just not feeling it.

            Were you sold on this dress originally or did you have a hard time deciding between a few?

              I think I may have settled.  I liked it, but I don't know if I love it.  There's not another dress, but I am wondering if there is something else I would love more.

                Sorry you don't like your dress anymore :(

                Maybe they can do something for you so it doesn't wrinkled in the back? I hate to say it but can you look for another one to see if you fall in love with a different dress. You shouldn't be upset with your dress on your wedding day...

                I honestly think it looks pretty on you & I thought the wrinkle look was how it was supposed to look  Can you try it on with some friends & get their opinions on what they think?

                  Another option would be to try on the dress with the veil you picked, beautiful shoes, jewelry...even have your hair and makeup done. Sometimes it's hard for us to feel "bridey" unless we can see the whole picture!

                  Good luck!

                  So...

                  Basically the same dress... and when it came in... I hated it and cried my eyes out.  I went and purchased a new dress.  It just was NOT flattering on me.  I tried it on and it was about 6 sizes too big.  They said that the way it fit in the hips was only because it was the wrong size.  Well... this picture is me in my size.  As you can see, it has a very high waist line so the hips flare out.  Personally, my hips are my number one hate about me thing, so this just wasn't going to fly! 

                  Anyway, bought a second dress... haven't regretted that decision since the day I bought it.

                    Oh my god it is basically the same dress!  I cried when I first came home after trying it on.  It was so tight in the waist that, well, I felt fat in it.  I also hate the way it fits around the hips.  Thanks so much...I know I'm not crazy despite what my mother and sister are telling me!  :)
