    I bought my dress before christmas but now im not sure. I tried it on again yesterday and wasnt completely in love with it. Do i stick with it or go look for a new dress? I bought the dress from an outlet which is no returns. If i get a new dress how do i get back some of the money from the dress i have? i loved the dress when i bought it

    What was it about the dress you loved and why are you not sure now?

    Could you make some alterations to it to make it more of what you love?

    If you decide to get rid and get a new dress you can always sell it.

    I believe there's a section on here you can sell your wedding dresses on? But if not, there are several groups on the book of face, or there's the bay of e. There are also other sites you can google to sign up and sell on a wedding dress. Also, near where I live there's also a dress shop which sells secondhand dresses and they will have it in the shop to sell on, but obviously they will take part of the profit, usually at least 50% so that might not be the best option but then they also tend to get more than the bay of e. So it might be worth seeing if there's something like that in your area if you really don't like it anymore? Maybe book in to look at some more dresses to see if there are any that you suddenly do fall in love with as well before considering to get rid of the one you have. :)

    You can only sell your dress on here if a power user and already married.

    There must have been soemthing that stood out with everything else when you got it. Might be worth looking and trying a couple more on and seeing if you keep going back to that one just to reassure you it is the right one.

    Maybe go and try some others on and see how you feel then... if you prefer some of the others then maybe it is the wrong dress.

    But it could just be a bit of a wobble. Try and remember what it was about it that you loved.

    How long is it before you get married?? I got mine a long time before the wedding and I thought a couple of times had I got the wrong dress, but just looked at pictures of it again and knew I had not, when it came into the shop and I saw it for real, I knew I had not.

    You could maybe go try some more dresses on and see if it's the style that's bothering you or at least rule out other styles you're thinking might suit you better? Maybe a trying on session might make your dress look better to you, or worse but either way at least you'll know! It might be that it's not the dress that's the problem but you might be thinking theres better out there?
    Then if you do find another dress you can sell yours?

    When you tried it yesterday was it done up properly?
    Only because when my dress was put on me I hated it & did up until I was fully corseted in, then I was like "wow I love it".

    Try to remember why you chose the dress originally & the feeling it gave you :)

    I tried mine on on Saturday for my dress fitting and was worried about the same thing, but I wore my shoes and my jewellery and my hair was done as had my trial just before and I loved it.

    I would try it on again with accessories and see how you feel. If you're still not sure after that then maybe you should try on other dresses and see whether you prefer your original dress.
