Wedding Dress Doubts :( some advice?

Because the FI and I moved to Bahrain for his job and wouldn't be back until a month before the wedding, I had to get a dress before I left in December. I found a dress and I cried and thought I looked quite sassy in it. Purchased the dress, was measured and I was DELIGHTED to find a dress that made stumpy me look good.


Fast foward to a week ago and I'm SOO anxious and worried that I made a mistake! Trying to get healthy and lose some lbs and I realized what if the dress won't look as good when I'm smaller? What if it's not as pretty as I thought in the beginning? I can't just go and buy another dress. Have any of you gone through this? I'm hoping it's because it's in the shop now and I can't just drive and see it and alterations are going to have to be ON POINT when I get there.


I'm kind of freaking out about it can anyone please tell me what to do about this bridezilla moment of mine?

I'm going through the same thing! I bought my dress in Nov at the running of the brides. Its was a great dress (and a great time) I looved her and got her at a great price. Well As I search the boards and watch all these wedding shows my dress to me seems sub-par. 


Plus I've gained a few lbs...(that's changing now diet started last week) 


It's been a while but remember how you felt when you tried her on. You cried! The dress can get altered and it'll looks just as beautiful!

you too bought it about a year ahead! yeah i just needed reassurance you know? esp. from other brides. and i think the same thing haha that mine doesn't look as nice, i have to just remember that i will fall in love with it again...plus i had this idea of dying my bridal slip purple to add color ;) since my dress is champagne. i just want the FI to look at me and think STUNNINGLY BEAUTIFUL when he sees me in it!

if it makes you feel better I bought my dress last July!  I haven't tried it on since.  I also have had feelings of it not being the one. What has helped me since my dress is in Florida and I am in DC is when I look up the dress online with other brides in it and how much they loved the dress.  That might be weird but the fact other people loved it just as much reassures me.
