Second thoughts on the dress!

I love my dress everytime I put it on! However, we were in FIs cousins wedding Saturday and her dress was so poofy and beautiful and now I'm freaking out! I feel like my dress might not be enough. I dont know I think I'm being craxy and just need some reassurance. Did other people feel this way too.

Let it go. Not all the dresses are suitable for everyone, but your dress is for you.

 I think a lot of brides have a small case of 'dress envy' at some point - I did the week after my wedding when my brother & SIL got married.

Your dress is perfect for you, don't worry xx

 Oh definitely, I still get dress envy almost two years later! There are so many beautiful dresses out there, it's hard not to! But if your dress makes you feel beautiful and you love it--that's the dress for you for your big day! Most brides have moments of re-thinking their choices, so don't worry :)

 Yes, it is normal. Unfortunately I intially purchased a dress that just wasn't for me but I KNEW it when I purchased it and should have listened to that inner voice.

However, if you loved the dress when you bought it and still love it every time you put it on, then it's your dress!  Just like with everything there will always be someone prettier than you, has a bigger house, better car, perfect (or so they think) kids.  

Trust your decisions and know that you will look and feel beautiful on the day of your wedding.  You're gorgeous how could you not?

We have all dress envy from time to time it's natural.

 Trust yourself, no one knows better about what looks good on you or what you like the most than you. Don't worry you've got this!

 Just adding my opinion: I purchased my dress about 7 months before and when i first looked at it i didn't fall in love as I was expecting to. Then after looking at it and trying it on and feeling the same way I decided to make a few arragments, even with everybody saying my dress was fine (but fine is not PERFECT). Got my dress back yesterday, almost one week before my wedding  and I just LOVE IT! I felt the most beautiful bride in the world!
 

So,in  my opinion if you're not feeling happy or thinking the dress is not the one, change it! You won't regret latter.

Dress envy is totally normal. I questioned myself a million times even though i KNEW just how much i loved my choice. Dont let it stress you out. you can appreciate other dresses but dont let it get too into your head. You will be stunnign and your dress will be perfect. there is a reason you chose it and a reason you love it!!!

Totally normal!! I got my dress early and I hadn't tried much on when I did buy her...but the honest truth is that there a LOT of beautiful dresses out there. You found one you like and I guarantee you'll fall in love with her again when it's time to wear her on the big day. I know I did!!

Can you add anything to it to make it more poofy? Like a crinny? I had dress envy too, but like most said already, I think it's normal. Can you try it on while you're all done up? Makeup and accessories? Maybe it'll help you envision it more? (Be carlful not too get makeup on it though! )
