omg.. i hate my wedding dress?!

Sun Dec 12, 2010 8:12 pm

hey everyone.. oh lord..someone please help me. i really am starting to dislike my dress. i live on the other side of the country to my closest friends so i pretty much had to go it alone with dress shopping. a work friend told me to go into a local bridal store as they were having a sale..i spotted a dress i thought was really quite unique and was coaxed to try it on.. well, i ended up buying the dress..and have lost sleep every night since.. its really not me and my mother cant stand it. its very unique to say the least and i dont think there is any alterations that can be done to make it more to my liking. i am so upset and have since found some absolutely stunning bridesmaid dresses (which dont suit my wedding dress).. please ladies..what do i do? :cry:

Could you post pictures of the dress, or do you know the designer/model?

You can either upload attachment (see below the "Post a Reply" box where you type in a response), or upload to a website like photobucket or image shack and paste the img link.

When is your wedding, hun?
I think we could all say that dress is gorgeous but ultimately if you hate it, then you might as well consider other options!
If you have enough time, sell the dress off like on ebay or something similar, and buy another one.

You know what? I think the dress looks nicer on you because the skirt is less poofy iykwim??

I'm starting to like it!

Then again, if you don't, then try to sell it now!
