Hello! I was wondering if anyone had been in this situation. I tried on a dress a few weeks ago and I loved it, but then went to an off the rail sale and fell in love with another and brought it out right there and then .... however the love has faded and I’m still so in love with the other one and feel I have made a massive massive mistake. But I can’t afford to buy another dress as this one was exspensive enough. What on earth do I do??? Help!!!

Leave it a couple of weeks then try it on again. I guess you can always sell it if it's not the one.

The first dress I tried on I wanted. Even set up a payment plan with the lady... tried on 10 others after but none matched up.
I now have the 11th dress I tried on. I keep looking back at the first and I love it
But the more I put my dress on now I know that I made the best choice.
It is beautiful. And I know on the day I will feel like a princess...

You wouldn't have bought this dress if you didn't picture yourself on the day.
Head high. You will be perfect. X

I think this is normal? I tried on soooo many dresses they have all blended in to one! I felt amazing in nearly all of them and had sort of forgotten the dress I actually bought until it arrived (because I didn’t take photos so I couldnt talk myself out of it before it arrived!)

Have you bought all your accessories/had fittings yet? Maybe doing that will get the excitement going again. All wedding dresses are beautiful! Like Kerrie said you picked it for a reason. X

I had the same thing few problems with dresses and had one bought for me. I wasn't 100% sure at first but each time I've put it on I fall in love a little more!! There was a reason you fell in love give it time! Good luck 😉

I’m sure you could sell the dress. It’s your day so you need to have what you want. You will find a way I’m sure xx

I found and fell in love with my dress and then stopped looking and concentrated on other things! If you try it on again and find like then try to sell and why not get a pic if you other dress and get a good dress maker to make it which will probably be cheaper than off the peg???

Hi ladies sorry for not replying. This was my post. I went back to the dress shop and managed to find a new dress which I am 100000% in love with it’s what I wanted and think I settled for the first dress as I couldn’t find this one. But I have it now and I feel amazing and cannot wait to get it on!!!
