    I get married in July and chose my dress last year. However, since it arrived I'm not sure I like it anymore let alone love it.
    The dress is very plain and simple which is what I wanted as I'm not very girly, but in total I only tried on 3 dresses. I'm now wishing I tried on more dresses and more styles. The dress itself is maggie sottero -Belize. I'm not a skinny bride so not sure if I'm just comparing the dress on me to pictures of the dress on the size 6 model who comes up when googling the dress. Anyone else felt like this before??
    I'm going back to try it on but only appointment I could get is 7th February so have to wait till then.

    Maybe when you try it on again you will remember why you picked it in the first place? I too get married in July and sometimes see other dresses i think are amazing, but when i look at pictures of me trying mine on I know i've made the right choice! Good luck!

    You never know when you put it back on you might feel amazing in it, thinking about it doesnt make you feel the same as having it on! Its hard when you see other dresses and then think oh no did i make a mistake but just wait till you put it back on im sure you will love it as you did choose it :D

    I think like the other have said, when you try it again you will love it.

    I agree, it's a beautiful dress. You will probably fall in love with it again when you try it on x

    It's a gorgeous dress. There is a reason why you chose it in the first place, hopefully you will remember those reasons when you try it on again :) I think it's normal to have a few dress wobbles!

    Thanks for the reply's, did a silly thing and went looking at other dresses online and everyone I took a screenshot of was similar to mine. Think I'm going to get the ladies in the shop to help me see if it looks better with more of a sweetheart neckline and if so, will get it altered to suit as I think this May be the issue I'm having with it looking at the dresses I took screenshots from.

    Thank you for not making me feel alone and scared about my choice.

    Ive found myself in a similar situation on numours occasions, i too get married in July and choose my dress last January. I had niggles in the back of my head whether it was the one or not but when I went back to try it on again I fell in love with it all over again

    I think you may just be having a wobble, when you try it on again, im sure you will fall in love with it again, if not im sure you can try on others just to see how you feel and then i bet you go back to your first choice x

    I am sure it is gorgeous but if you are worried it is too plain maybe buy a sparkly belt or ask if they can put a few crystals on the dress xx

    I'm sure they can do alterations on it to help you ensure you know you totally love the dress. It's good that when you looked at others that they were very similar to the one you had picked, it shows that is the one you like

    I get married in less than 11 weeks and looked at my dress before Christmas and for the first time didn't like it as much! But I think it's cos I haven't had it on in a while. I just think back to how I feel when I tried it on, my mam said she had never ever seen me so sure of anything before, I was adamant I wasn't leaving the shop without paying for it lol. You can always get a few things added to it to make it your own. Never compare to what it looks like on models, every dress looks different on everyone.

    I have only recently ordered my dress and my emotions went like this. First time trying it on feeling like the most beautiful person in the world even had a woman cry from another group of people trying dresses lol and all I could say to h2b was this dress was wow lol then I tried it on again but this time with someone with me and I began doubting myself then the 3rd and final time and after trying another dress I quite liked I put it on took a breathe and imagined the wedding day and me fully dressed I knew this dress was the one :)
    I think my niggles were me searching for pics online of dress and seeing skinny models (I'm not skinny) and then thinking will it suit me. Sometimes thinking is the worst thing to do lol I would stop with the searching for pics and wait until your next fitting as I'm sure it will take your breath away x

    When you try your dress on, if you can, take photos of yourself so that you can remember what it looks likex
