having doubts about my dress

I love my dress... but it costs so much! I totally bought it on an impulse and now all I can think of is what I could do with the money I spent on the dress! I guess it's too late now. I just wish I had thought about it more before I bought it.

Your dress is so beautiful though! Monique Lhuillier is very expensive, but 20 years from now you will look back and think "wow that dress is beautiful and I look so hot!" and you won't even care about the money.

You can't do anything about it now, so you might as well enjoy it! No regrets!

I agree with BayAreaBride. You already bought it. Check it off the todo list and move on. (harsh, but true)

Hi jeanie, the dress pic is in my bio. The person wearing the dress is a model (obviously not me).

It should be fixed now. The pic is in my bio. "Jessica" by Monique Lhuillier.

Margaret - just don't think about it anymore. It's one thing off of your to-do list and move on to the next project. The more you think about everything, the more you don't want to spend any money on anything! You will look gorgeous in your dress (still have yet to see pics of it). Now 2 years after our wedding, I wish I had bought a Monique Lhuillier dress! =)

I know what you mean. I found a dress I love, but I can't swallow the price tag. Without tax or alterations it would cost $45 per minute to wear. ARE YOU KIDDING ME! Maybe if I hadn't done that math I would be ok. I don't recommend calulating the minute by minute cost of your dresses. It might make you sick :)

But you dress is beautiful. I would have no regrets.

I think your dress is so beautiful! And you might try to sell the dress after the wedding to get some of the money back...might make you feel better.

the only mistake you could make is not getting the dress you really want,trust me, I made a horrible mistake with my first dress, I wasn't happy with it, so to make the long story short, ended up looking and buying a second dress...much happier now, satisfied...so as long as your satisfied, don't worry about it.....your wedding is only once in a lifetime but money can always be made....

It is beautiful... If the cost is the only thing bothering you, then just take good care of it on the day of, have it cleaned by a specialist, and then resell. Just think... You can enjoy the dress of your life guilt free and your beautiful gown will have a second life to live! ;) Buying a sought-after designer also has perks in that the resell value is higher.

if you absolutely love your dress, cheris it and enjoy it. i didn't buy the dress i wanted at first and i couldn't stop think about it. i ended up buying something that everybody else thought was a better choice (probably b/c of the price) and i'm pissed at myself for listening to everyone else and not to my heart's desire. i actually went back to the bridal salon yesterday and ordered the one i really wanted. so trust me, if you get something else because you think you overpayed, you will regret it. your dress is gorgeous and you're going to feel that exact way on your wedding day. keep the dress and enjoy your day! you deserve it!
