    I've been seeing a lot of people talk about "dress regret" and feeling funny about getting a  non beachy wedding dress. I obviously went for a more vintage look, not a beachy dress at all. I was so worried that it would be too fancy and not work for a beach wedding. I finally let go of that and just went with what my heart wanted. I bought this San Patrick Rivoli and loved it at the time. I bought the sample so I've had it since the day I found it. A month later I started getting dress regret and feeling nervous I paid a lot of money for something I wouldn't end up liking. I bought this belt for around $50 from Glory's House and hoped it would work since I was NOT going to spend $300 on a darn belt! I tried on the dress again with the belt last night and realized that I was being silly and LOVED my dress! I think I love it more now than the day I bought it! 

     

    For you all that are having second thoughts, go try on your dress again! I'm sure you will love it just as much as I did the second time!

      You look stunning.

       

      When I went dress shopping, I had the thought of a light flowy beachy dress as I thought that what I 'should' wear. After trying on dozen, they just did not suit me.. I looks terrible in them! So.. I tried on a dress that I loved from seeing it in books and on TV, and fell in love with it. It not Beachy at all as far as Im concerned... but I ordered it. For months I thought.. "what did I do!" but when the dress came in and I went for my fittings I was relieved to still love it as much as the first time I tried it on.. if not more!

       

      Its your day, and you should get to wear what you want and what you feel beautiful in, whether is a poofy Ball-Gown, slinky sheath of lacey vintage!

       

      DW are not the norm.. anything goes in my opinion!

        Thank you so much! Not being a tiny girl I was a little worried but it's very slimming! I totally agree with the anything goes motto. I've had so many unnecessary opinions on having to buy a beachy dress. Some are amazing but didn't fit my vintage look I was going for!

         

        Thanks for the sweet comments!

          You look gorgeous and so happy! It's a good reminder to all of us (especially those of us waiting for 6 months to see our dresses again) that we made the right choice because we made it for ourselves. I tried the 'destination wedding' lines and they are really beautiful but none felt right for me. Finally I tried on the one I had saved a picture of months ago which is lacey and vintage looking like yours, so it's not beachy at all but I LOVE it and I love wearing it. So glad you realized you picked the right dress!

            I am going princess the only thing we were worried about is my BM would look funny with sundresses so we went with a little more fancy dresses.

            Kara - this dress is stunning on you!!! and I think it's going to look amazing on the beach and at the resort. You have nothing at all to worry about.

              I need opinions on dress colors.  I tried on dresses yesterday and all of them were a shade of ivory, until the second store, then I tried white.  I'm not sure which color will look better on the beach or if it even matters?  My concern is standing next to my fiancĀ© in khaki and a white shirt and my dress being ivory.  Maybe I am over thinking this??

                Definitely not over thinking this.  White next to ivory tends to make ivory look yellow/dingy.  However, the photo below is of a true ivory, and many wedding dresses are not this dark.  Most are a much lighter ivory where the contrast won't be such a contrast as shown in the pic.  Alternatively, your Fi can wear an off-white shirt which is what we've decided to do.
