    Hi Ladies

    I have a deposit paid for my dress and for additional straps. I haven't been fitted for it yet and I won't be for a while. I've been really doubting myself recently whether I have made the right choice or not. I think I may have been a bit hasty. It was the 5th dress I tried on. I've asked the bridal shop if I can change the straps to a bolero and they said that wasn't a bother. Do you think they would let me add the deposit to another dress in their shop? Has anyone else been in the same situation? I really like the dress I have, perhaps because i havn't seen everything it's hard to know if I've made the right choice.

    thank you xx

    Hello - It will probably depend if the shop has already placed the order with the designer? I changed my mind once the deposit had been put down - not about the actual dress, but over the size. I decided to order a smaller size than the one we'd put a deposit on. I contacted the bridal shop about 2 weeks later and they said they could do it, but would need to know within a week before the order proceeds too far. Probably worth contacting them Monday.

    I am sure the dress looks lovely on. I had doubts over mine, but had my first fitting last week and the dress is even lovelier than I remembered and I'd kind of worked myself up into a state of self doubt.

    It might be worth going back and try the dress on again. It's totally normal to have doubts and this will put your mind at rest. They should be able to show you what it will look like with the straps on.

    When I got my dress I wasn't sure about it for a long time. Now that it's altered to fit perfect I absolutely love it. Go back and try it on again and see how u feel

    I think you should maybe go back and try the dress on again and if your still feeling the same you should speak to them while your in the shop. xx
