    I honestly think that your first choice is probably the best choice. Don't drive yourself crazy! There are SO many dresses out there that you probably find other things you like as much as the dress you already have. As long as it looks great, is beautiful to you, and is comfortable (enough!) I wouldn't worry so much about other dresses. It's only one day!

        If it were me, I'd stick with the dress I had and try to stop watching those wedding TV shows and looking in bridal stores (which seem designed to separate us from our sanity). I don't buy the "there's only one perfect dress out there for you" line. Plus, trying to find something new with five months to go and convincing the original store to take your other dress back sounds like too much stress. In the end, it's just a dress. Your commitment to your fiancee is what matters most...Just my two cents.

          Im agreed with not trying anymore dresses on.  Say Yes to the Dress would tell you not to either.    Im fighting the urge myself but I know the dress I bought is really awesome and looks good on me.  The one.. well the ONE I tried on (that was it).  I can tell you I didnt have anyone with me and there was no crying involved.

                beachbride, are you able try your dress on again? I too had major dress regret after purchsing a dress, yes it was a beautiful dress just not what I pictured myself walking down the aisle in.  I think I went back 3 times to try it on, twice even by myself and each time I didn't fall in love and have that omg this is my dress feeling anymore.  In the end I tried on a lot more dresses and found a dress I had a picture of from day one that I just couldn't find anywhere.  I absolutely love my new dress and I couldn't be any happier that I changed it! 

                 

                Good luck!!

                    Ok ladies, I went and looked at my receipt and I bought my dress 15 days after I got engaged...and that was a year ago.... Definitely was an impulse buy from all the excitement....so I grabbed my future sister in law and we went back to the bridal shop I originally bought my dress at...I walked in with a gown in mind...had them pull it and as soon as I saw it in person it was a no...so I asked for ANY fit and flare gowns they had...mind you when I walked in I pointed out a gorgeous Vera Wang gown but didn't think it would go with a beach wedding...my future SIL made me try it on anyway (and it was a fit and flare of course)....so long story short I tried on about 15 more dresses and even my original dress again...and I was IN LOVE with the Vera! Nothing compared to that dress, I felt like such a bride! (tears are welling up in my eyes as I think about the feeling now)...so then I asked if they would take my unaltered dress back and YES they would!!! Store credit toward the new dress...I had to bring my dress back the next morning....needless to say I could not sleep at all thinking of this dress!!! Ahhhhh!!! So the next morning I grabbed my dress and my future MIL and we headed to the store...as soon as that Vera gown was on me I was so happy again...since it was New Years EVe they actually had noise makers and all that jazz and made a huge deal of it being "the dress"...I have to say that helped seal the deal! Then the seamstress took me to the back room so she could pin my dress for the bustle and I was surrounded by mirrors...wow! That was it...the tears started flowing!!! I felt so beautiful and happy in this dress! So girls....I FOUND THE ONE!!!! I wish I could post pics to show you...I paid a lot more than I wanted...about $900 more than the other dress, but it is worth every penny! If anyone has dress doubt, go look for that dress that makes you feel like a bride!!!!
