Im having a dress dilema!

I dont know if I want my dress anymore! I am still looking (maybe I should stop that) and keep seeing dresses that look more like a beachy dress I SHOULD have ordered. My dress isnt a beach dress at all.

Ive been to beach wedding with traditional wedding dresses, and they still look great, but do I want a traditional dress?

My dress is due to be delivered in the next month or two, so I wont do anything rash before then, but would it be silly to change my mind 6, 5 or 4 months out and want something else?

I personally love the dress you already have ordered, Erin! It's gorgeous! Is it the same as the one Mel got? Looks very similar!

Does anyone happen to know who the designer of this dress is? I want it :heart:

well ladies, it must the week for it. I am totally re-thinking my dress as well.

Today I was watching teen mom and one of the girls got married and she has on the dress i originally wanted. Which is a maggie sottero dress pictured below.

maggie dress.jpg


I am thinking maybe wait till a little closer to the wedding and order this dress from big d and see if i love it more then mine. I did get my orginal dress for a very good price so if i have to sell i will most def break even if not make money on it. but i still have just over a year so we will see.

So I cant help you ladies with your dress issues i am in the same boat. but Erin i do love your org dress.... (but i am not personally a fan of the floral shoulder look in the other dress).

FH and I are going to the Canada, Alaska & USA expo tomorrow in order to get ideas for our honeymoon. We know we are going to Alaska but not sure what there is to do there so cant wait to get some ideas. Then we are going to visit a lodge that we are thinking of hiring out for the night before and night after our wedding for my family coming down from Sydney, QLD and across from SA. So a nice full day of wedding related tasks and finally FH is tagging along.. Can't wait!

Hope everyone elses weekend are going well :)

Erin that dress you already ordered is gorgeous. It will definately suit the beach. Most dresses are pretty versatile.

Sorry Jessie. I have no idea.

Tarz that dress you posted is lovely.

I had second thoughts about my dress until I tried it on again. After I originally tried it on w waited so long to order it I forgot what it looked like on and my bm lost the photo she took of it.

NWR - FH & I are getting our new puppy tomorrow. So excited :D

Thanks girls for the comments on my original dress :heart: I think I have to wait for it to come in, and in all honesty, I will probably love it..I should just stop teasing myself by looking at other dresses :D Moments of insanity and undecisiveness are normal for brides to be arent they!

Tara - I think WE ALL need to stop looking at dresses! If you have a dress, you got it for a reason..you loved it!

Jessie I dont know who designed that dress, but ots GORGEOUS! I love it! SO pretty

Sachick - oo a puppy..pics when you get him please!

Well speaking as someone who has already been through one dress and is onto dress two... if you have serious reservations for whatever reason, change it. If you just have dress envy, get over it! There are thousands of gorgeous dresses, lots will look wonderful on you but you cannot have them all!

If there is one you really love consider having it made for another occasion. I also loved this dress by Fiorenza - Jada but wanted to shrink the train. So I have decided to have it made in black or red for my thirtieth in a few years if I still want it :)

Oh and I also had a mini freak out last night.

FBIL is best man in ours and another wedding next year and FBIL's gf is my MUA and BM in this other wedding...Last night she tells me the other bride just booked her wedding for Aug next year... my gore dropped and she was like yours is in may isnt it... UMMMM NO ITS AUG AS WELL!!!! My heart sank FBIL would take it really hard if he had to choose... and I would hate it if he had to..

So we are waiting to hear back about what date this other couple booked.... my fingers crossed its not the same day let along the same weekend!

I prefer dress one....only because my bridesmaids are wearing your dress two in black....so to me it feels more like a bridesmaid dress rather than gown.
