I guess it is not a traditional princess wedding dress and I am thinking maybe I should have done that! I think the other problem was the dress at the fitting was huge and so I couldn't tell what it will really look like until they fix it, but am I crazy? Am I the only one thinking this??!! Help!!

         I've seen a few ladies say the same thing. I'm sure your dress is perfect, there is a reason you feel in love with it!!  Did you take any pictures of it so we can see it?

          I think if you had the feeling before, once it all comes together, you will probably have it again!  You just need to picture it how you initially saw yourself and how it will look with shoes, hair and make-up done, jewelry and your bouquet!  It's not easy to picture it until you're in the moment...

            First problem- i was with a friend and this was an impromptu appt. I will be making a day of dress shopping 6/12 with my mom, fmil, and MOH, I must have there approval :) This was at Davids Bridal, which I'm not a huge fan of, but yes they do allow pics to be taken. The dress on sale is $725 + alterations and taxes. I have a couple appointments set up at other more boutiquey places that i hope iwll offer more of a variety as DB was very limited in the lace fabric. The more I look at the pic the more I question it. In any event I'm ecstatic to have my mom, fmil, and moh go with me and make a day of dress shopping, I hope to walk out of the store with a dress bought (and run to this site to post pics haha)

                I haven't been in this situation but maybe it's just a grass is always greener type thing?  I'm sure your dress is beautiful, maybe it just other stresses and nerves manifesting itself this way? Especially since as you said the dress was fitting quite large and you had a hard time envisioning the final fitted product?  You fell for this dress once, so like the other girls have said, once you have everything in place I'm sure you'll get those feelings again!

                MsBlissMpsls,

                 

                All I can say is breathtaking!  What an amazing choice of dress for you - flawless!  Your photos are beautiful!

                I'm still very (im)patiently waiting for my dress to come in, so in the meanwhile here's a pic of it on the model: 

                 



                Went for my first fitting this weekend, they only had a size ten but I am still in love with it, I just have to share my dress again !!

                 





                Found my dress! Ended up buying the sample because you could not beat the price, so now for the next year I am just going to look at it everyday! (what a tease!) Definitly needs lots of alterations especially since I am only 4'10! But you get the idea! Never in a million years did i think i would wear this type of dress on my wedding day but I fell in love with the lace and how simple and lightweight it is!



                I never got the feeling that "This is the one" when trying on dresses and eventually just bought my Pronovias, Alfil because I was running out of time.  On the day of the wedding with my hair and make up done though it felt right and I loved that it had a little Mexican flair.

                    OK, this was my fave that I tired on, but I walked out of the store not buying it. Opinions ladies?
