Dress regret? Maybe?

So this weekend on top of doing my e-shoot, i went and did my first dress fitting to have it pinned to be altered. My dress is beautiful and makes me look increadiable... BUT im not having the same feelings for it (or maybe i never did) as i did when i bought it. I dont know if its because the shop was very hot, but i was sweating, i felt like i couldnt breath because they keep cinching it so tight (its a corset back...and im wearing a torosolete bra thing underneath, that and despite what everyone else says i guess i gained weight and i barely fit into it. :( ) and the dress feels so heavy. I wonder once they hem it will it feel lighter and easier to move around in? there not really hemming a large amount of it... but still. does everyone go through this? any advice for me? I'm spending so much on it, i really dont want to go down the road of a reception dress... i want to wear it all night. but im afraid i will be miserable. this has been nagging me the past few days... im not sure what to do. Advice? im trying to track down a hair person to do my hair and am considering on doing a hair trial the day of my second fitting... to see if it helps. i have such a positive image of myself now a days all because of the dress and when i went shopping for it... so its weird for me to feel like this. again any advice would be wonderful!

 Do you have pics of you in your dress? Post them here and we can reconvince you lol

I think it is normal to question the choice especially when there are so many choices out there.  Try to remember how you felt when you first tried it on. Also you have to remember that the day of your wedding you will have makeup accessories etc…I think it’s a great idea to have your fitting the same day as your hair trial. It will make a HUGE difference and you will know for sure if you like both of them together.  

Did you try your dress without any bra? Depending on the style of the dress but generally a corset back dress with a heavy fabric you don’t need anything underneath. I absolutely 100% need to have a bra in at all times (lol) but managed to not have to wear one under my dress. It made a huge difference comfort wise and heat wise as well. It’s a whole lot of dress lol

Good luck and keep us updated after you try her again.

 I can't upload the pic with my phone. It won't let me scroll down to hit upload. 

Anyways I feel like I need the bra to keep my shape right and to fit into the dress properly. But I honestly hadn't thought about it. And I hate that all the petticoats are made of syntethic fabrics that don't breath. I almost ordered a chiffon one but didn't want to spend a 150 on a petti. :( 

Um there are pics of my dress in my photo boards in my profile. You can see it there or I'm sure if you do a search for my username an older thread should pop up

 YEAH!!! I found it on thje post when you bought your dress!!! 

First off....I LOVE IT!!! You look gorgeous!!!! I think you should try it without a bra. It looks like you would be able to get away with it since its got quite a structured top. Try it...you have nothing to lose. if it doesn’t work, then you are back to where you are right now.  

At the end of the day YOU have to love it and be comfortable in your gown....but I honestly think that you look stunning. Maybe nerves are starting  to get the better of you. Step back and breathe and wait until your next appointment. Try not to over analyze it. It will help with your dress claustrophobia (lol) You are beautiful and you will be perfection on your day

 Thank you Lorna! I will do that when I bring the dress home again. I plan on trying it on at least once a month up till the date because I'm afraid of gaining or loosing too much weight. Putting myself on a little diet again. Going to try and cut most sugars out and soda again. Portion control etc. I don't really want to go bra-less into the shop for my fitting. :P I'm just afraid I will be more "rolly" without the torsolette. Lol if you catch my dress. I agree I do look lovely. :P

I agree with Lorna! but if the second time you decide you don't like it heres a few things to think about..........

Can I afford another dress?

Do I have enough time to get another dress?

What are the things I truly like/dislike about my dress? Is there anything I can add or change to make me fall in love all over again?

I agree that you should be comfortable on your day. I also think you look wonderful. Maybe you should put yoour whole look together makeup, jewelery, shoes, and  see how you feel then maybe when you see yourself as a bride you will know if you made the right choice.

 I don't think I can afford another dress no. Time I probably do have but I simply can't afford another grand for a dress I'm going to spend 4-8 hours in. Nope. Maybe a reception dress but like I said I don't want to change out of this one. I do really like it. It's just so heavy and hot! So it's not really the appearance it's the comfort that's bothering me. 

I agree I think I'm going to schedule hair and I guess maybe makeup too. To see the full picture. I don't know. I'm just antsy. Lol
