Second Guessing The Dress

Recommended Posts

I am starting to second guess the dress I ordered, which has also unfortunately come in WAY ahead of schedule. Has this happened to anyone else here? How did you handle it?

There has been quite a few threads on this, believe it or not.

Did you have the dress back on since it came in? I would suggest that, sometimes you need to get it back on to realize how much you do love it.  Also, why did you love it and purchase it in the first place?  Try to remind yourself of that.

 

If you really just can't wrap your head around it then maybe you could go out and look again.

 

I just believe there will always be another, we can love more than one thing.  So be careful because you don't want to end up buying 5 dresses :)

 

Good luck.

I had the same issue. It had been 5 months since I had seen the dress and had every nightmare known to man kind about it. I couldn't have been more panicked about my dress. Went and put it on, had it altered to fit perfectly and loved it even more than the day I first tried it on. I think all brides second guess their choice. We have so much pressure on us to be perfect!! 

Go try it on, remind yourself of all the reasons you love it. If you still can't find the reason why you bought it then go looking again.

I bet you're beautiful in your dress and it will be perfect!!!

Thanks! I already called the store and made an appointment to try it on again next week and also look at some other dresses. I just think i picked a dress that's the wrong cut. I look at pictures of myself in another dress I tried on and feel like the cut on that one (slim a-line) is so much better. I feel like mine has too much poof and not enough other detail. 

 

And congrats!!! I see you just got married. Hope it was everything you dreamed of!!!

I hope everything works out with you dress.  I'm having a similar issue.  I think I have found the dress and when I have it on I think it is the dress but then I keep looking at pictures and then I talk myself out of committing to it.  I know I need to just decide pretty soon...

 

I hope that your fitting goes well!

I had the exact same issue. I had the dress at home, but unaltered. I absolutely loved the dress when I bought it. I didn't try it on for months, and then I started to re think my choice of dress. I figured it was something all brides go through, and I began getting accessories to match it. I tried them all on , and I still wasn't convinced... even with the dress pinned in all the right places.

I started to panic about it all. So I spoke my sister, and she convinced me that's its okay to change your mind, and she took me to look at other dresses.... I'm so glad I did!!! I found the perfect dress( sadly out of my budget) but I happen to know an amazing dressmaker, who was able to re create my perfect dress!!

I say go with your gut feeling on this.... if you aren't happy now, imagine how unhappy you'd feel wearing it on your big day. Its okay to change your mind!!! Good luck!!!!!!

Well, I believe I am the queen of changing dresses......I changed my mind two times.  Luckily, I purchased from David's Bridal who will allow you to exchange the dress as long as it is the same or greater price.  So I finally found "the dress", it is sexy, has bling and I look absolutely amazing in it.  I also cried a ton of tears this time when I tried it on.  I just knew this time and I know without a doubt that I have the right dress. 

 

Having said all of that, it is okay to change your mind.  It all works out in the end.  :D

I recently went back to David's Bridal (where I bought my dress) to look at bridesmaids dresses. I almost cried in the store because I saw dresses that were just soooo pretty, probably even prettier than my dress! Even though my dress is beautiful…I am starting to question maybe if I looked around more I could have found something even better :/

I am a victim.  

 

I went through 2 designer dresses, and now I'm in love and sold on a vintage Jessica McClintock wedding dress I found at a thrift store for $25.

 

I am currently selling my Oleg Cassini, for way cheaper than I bought it.  I was first in love with Oleg Cassini CLR277, traded it in due to it being way too heavy for a Mexico wedding.  Got Oleg Cassini CWG482, and it's really not me.  It's gorgeous, but I'm really not traditional. 

 

Best advice, STOP LOOKING!! KEEP YOUR EYES CLOSED TILL YOUR WEDDING DAY!!!

 

I went dress shopping 9-10? months before my wedding.  BAD IDEA!

    • We chose to have our wedding at Fiesta so our review is broken down into categories. We have visited multiple Mexican vacation spots to include playa del carmen, cabo san lucas, Cozumel, Puerto Vallarta. We traveled with a group of 35, mostly adults. We had such a great experience and we will definitely go back to Fiesta American Condesa Cancun!!!!    Resort- this was a good size resort, I liked that It was not too big. We didn’t see any of the shows they offer but we did enjoy the pool every day. It was awesome that they had a live dj playing music and fun games to keep us entertained. The bars were all in good locations, we spent a lot of time at the main lobby bar because it stayed open late. They had bands, silent disco, game competitions, etc. every night all very fun and lively!   Room- We stayed in a junior sweet which had ocean view and was absolutely beautiful. Very spacious bathroom, we had a second bathroom in the living room in addition to a breakfast area.    Food- the buffet had a smaller selection of food than we usually see at all-inclusive resorts however the quality of the food was much better!! The ceviche bar outside had amazing fish or shrimp tacos and provides a nice view of the ocean.    Staff- The cleaning staff was great, our room was tidy and organized every day. The bar staff was very friendly and attentive. Yes, we did tip and did so often to ensure they kept coming around. After our wedding, it seemed all staff members knew us by name everywhere we went. We were treated so kindly everywhere!  There were two staff members who played a special role in our vacation, Blanca and Magda. They both were delightful and treated us just like family. Yes, they were awesome to my ENTIRE group.    Venue- We chose to have our ceremony and cocktail hour on the lower pool garden followed by reception on the lower pool deck. Beautiful views for both areas!!! Unfortunately, it rained so we ended up in the ballroom.    Wedding package- We chose the Corazon package and I love what the hotel had to offer. For my personal choice, it was between this package and one at dreams resort but I ultimately decided on this one after reviews from other brides and pictures I looked at. If you are on the fence about a destination wedding I say DO IT!! You can’t beat all inclusive, it really eliminates half the stress of planning a wedding. We had cocktail hour with margaritas, a 3 course dinner, a beautiful cake, and of course open bar. We did not opt for any of the add ons. I did bring my own décor such as table runners, Chinese lanterns, center pieces, bubbles, fans, etc.  The floral arrangements and my boquet were beautiful!!! Exactly as I imagined. My cake was also very pretty and looked just like the one I sent to my coordinator from pinterest.    Wedding coordinator- My wedding coordinator, Violeta Cambranes, was truly amazing!! We communicated mostly through email and a few calls right before wedding time. She was very timely and thorough with our plans. We met with her the day before the wedding. She showed us around and we did our food tasting as well as my trial for hair/make up. She is so personable and really felt like one of my friends throughout this process which is nice to have when you’re leaving such an important day in someone’s hands. I sent her pictures of what I envisioned (wedding colors, floral arrangements, table décor, etc.) and she made it all come to life. Because we ended up having to hold our wedding instead, Violeta was able to make accommodations for us which we are truly grateful for!! She was attentive the entire week we were there and we had no bumps in the road!    Rehearsal Dinner- we had dinner for about 15 people in the Mexican restaurant. The food was great and of course the staff was attentive. I do wish we had the opportunity to choose our own meal but still enjoyed it none the less.    Spa- we received a couples massage and it was perfect. Steam room, sauna, hot tub, and massage. So relaxing!! We also received a second massage on our shoulders one of the days we were there. A spa therapist came to our cabana while we relaxed and drank mimosas.    Date- we got married first week of October. I knew it was one of the rainiest months of the year but I was willing to take the change because it was offseason. I’m so glad that I did!! The rooms and the flights were extremely inexpensive. Also, the resort was not packed at all! There was a comfortable amount of people compared to when we usually travel in the summer. The weather was not too hot but it did rain 3/7 days we were there. Mosquitos were also still in full force so would recommend bug spray.   Photographer- my photographer, Mike Cantarall,  overall was great! He captured all the great moments of the wedding. The highlight video was truly perfect!! I will say it did take extremely long to obtain my pictures (7 weeks when expected turn-around time was supposed to be 7 days). I wish we could have had a discussion prior to wedding day. I don’t love a lot of the poses and he did ask me if there was anything specific I wanted  (while on the beach taking pictures) but in the moment I couldn’t think of exactly what I wanted. In hind sight, I would have asked for more close up, more poses as bride and groom, and for my dress to not be scrunched up. With that being said, I was still pleased with the turn-out of my photos.    DJ- our DJ was AudioCancun. Very pricey!!! But we did not have an option for vendor. He did a great job! He truly recognized the vibe of the group and played the best music to keep the party going! We did give him some specific songs which he played them all.    Make-up- My make up and hair was done by Anastacio Brides. I loved my look!! I showed them pictures from pinterest and it came out exactly how I wanted. After different areas of my face were done, my make-up artist would show me in the mirror to see if it was on track with what I wanted. They were so nice and I enjoyed their company while getting ready for my big day.   Travel- to and from hotel we used Happy Shuttle. They have great rates and I trusted them based on the reviews I read. I bought a garment back and carried my dress in my hands the entire way there and back! (yes even through all the flights). We ended up taking 4 suitscases between the two of us and also had some of our family members pack things for us.    Boat- Our group took a triple decker boat, Dancer Cruise, to Isla Mujeres. It was a full day of fun, accommodating both kids and adults. We snorkeled, we ate lunch, and we danced! The slide and diving board were pretty fun! The staff was lively and the boat was not very packed so that was nice. They did give us a group rate when I emailed them directly.
