Second Guessing the Dress

Trying on too many beautiful white dresses can you leave you confused on which dress is ‘The One’.  I hear a lot about a feeling you get when you put on ‘The Dress’ that is meant for you, and at that moment you know this is what you will be walking down the aisle in.

Personally my indecisiveness leaves me questioning that feeling.  I remember in my search for the dress I tried on a variety of styles, cuts, modern and traditional dresses in all different price ranges.  I easily could have spent over $5,000 on a dress, because when you put a $5,000 dress on you feel as if you are wearing just that, $5,000!  But, in reality my budget left me to be more creative and find inspiration  in a little less pricey but still a breathtaking dress.  With every different style of dress I remember dreaming up a new wedding.  By the end of my dress search I had 5 – 6 different wedding plans all across the country to match the dress style. 🙂  What I am trying to say is that it is normal to feel indecisive about your dress choice, questioning if it is ‘The Dress’, or if you should have continued to look and try on dresses.

The point comes where you have to choose your dress, and when that time comes don’t look back!

Did you second guess your dress after the big purchase?  How many dresses did you try on before you found your dress?  Finally, do you think that there is ‘One’ dress for every bride?  Let me hear your thoughts!

    I ended up buying the first dress I tried on. I did try on a handful of others at a couple different shops, but I had a very specific picture of what I wanted, and ended up going back to the first dress just a couple of days later. Didn’t second-guess it.

    Personally, I choose *everything* (from the future husband to the toilet paper) on getting precisely THAT feeling… why wouldn’t I choose my dress that way? Like for husbands, the One is the one you won’t regret even when you are tempting to shop for others. If one needs to stay away from others in order not to shop, then it’s not the One and sooner or later the truth will bite back.

    I think you can find “that dress” in a variety of differnet prices ranges. As much as your friends and family’s opinions weigh in on your decision, I think when you put a dress on and can invision walking down the aisle, you have found your match. I love mine and can not wait for the big day! 🙂

    I looked at one store. Granted this store was the second biggest bridal gown store in the nation, next to Kleinfeld’s, they had every price range. From $300 to $30,000 they had every designer imaginable! I only tried on 8 dresses and new my dress was the one! I didn’t need to search any longer or go to other stores. I was very happy with my selection and never looked back!

    I originally found my dress in NJ when I was visiting my family and came back to Chicago high and low to find it. I was getting so disappointed when no one carried the style or could order and then just as I was about to to give up I found a shop that carried it!! It was one of the first dresses I tried on and I ordered it back in May and it just came in for my wedding and I love it just as much as the first time I tried it on!! I am so excited for my day 10-10-10…I cannot wait for my fiance’ to see me.
