Has anyone purchased their dress and hated it when it came in?

Recommended Posts


I was worried after I ordered my dress that I wouldn't like it when it came in as I thought it might be to big and poufy and hot.  But when It came in I fell in love again!  I was planning on going to puchase a different dress it I didn't like it though!

=/ I hope this doesn't happen to me.. I bought the first dress I tried on.. LOL.. Crazy I know.. I did try on many after but I kept coming back to my first one and last one.. I was torn I admit.. But after the veil and some jewelry I picked the first one..

 

The sample size was like three sizes bigger than what I needed but even when I pulled it back and tried to make it tighter I just saw myself how I would want to look on that day..

 

I am sooooo eager to try it on MY dress when it comes in the fall...

 

I just hope I still love it..

 

I have known a lot of brides to change their mind when their dress does come in.. I think so much time goes by between you trying on the dress and then it finally coming in.. But I truly believe that if you find the one, you will still feel that way..

I'm anxious this will be me. I had a dress on that I thought was fantastic. In the store everyone agreed - it was a showstopper. But because it was a lot more dress than I had thought I wanted for a destination wedding (it has a long detailed train) I decided to think about it and maybe look around some more. My mom sent me the pictures from that day's shopping and I couldn't believe how awful I thought I looked in it!!! Not one of the dresses that were a contender looked good when I looked back on them. Now I have to start from scratch again and am getting anxiety over this!

I ordered my first dress because I liked it, and was worried that if I waited any longer I wouldn't be able to get any dress. While I was waiting I kept looking, and trying on dress, didn't like anything. When it arrived, it was nice but I didn't feel like a bride and certainly didn't love it. Then MIL ordered her dress with a similar skirt, so I knew for sure that I wanted to find something else. I still kept looking and hoping I would find something I liked, after 100 dresses I never found anything I loved. And I was willing to spend anything at this point. I ordered a custom dress that had all the qualities I was looking for. I was terrified it would show up and I wouldn't like it. I didn't show up until the week before we were leaving, so I was lucky that the only alteration I wanted was a sweetheart neckline. I didn't love it, but it looked nice and I had obviously run out of time.

 

I'm secretly hoping that in 10 or 15 years we will do a vow renewal and I can have the time to find a dress that I do love.

So I don't "Hate" mine, but I didn't have that "this is th eone" feeling either. I got a really good deal on it, and it's perfect for our location, as it very light and simple. I need to find a really nice belt/sash to dress it up, oh and lose 10lbs!

Cheers
