You heard me right. I am having wedding dress doubt. I don't know if it is just a prolonged sense of buyers remorse (I did the same thing when I bought my car. A combination of sticker shock and 'I didn't really need a new car' guilt) or if my intuition is really trying to tell me something. Everyone loves the dress and the dress is already paid for and I don't have it in the budget to just go out and purchase another dress... but for whatever reason it is tugging at me and I have even started looking for used wedding dresses online to see if maybe I can throw another 200 dollars and be done with it. Don't get me wrong- I like my dress. And when I purchased it I felt like that was as excited about a dress as I was going to get. But I have this nagging sensation in the pit of my stomach that it's not the best dress for me.
Of course there are body issues associated with it as well. I don't feel like I look enough like a bride. I don't have the flat stomach, the toned shoulders, buffed arms and tanned physique you see in all the bridal magazines. I'm- in terms of the wedding industry- a plus sized bride. I don't like the term "plus sized" because I don't particularly care for the connotation of what it means. I am by no means skinny, but I never have been. So when I found a dress that I could fit into and it didn't make me feel like a stuffed mushroom, I went for it. And perhaps I went for it too soon?!
I haven't made any final decisions, so I won't show my dress until I do. But what about the other brides out there?! Did you have post wedding dress stress?! Was it just buyers remorse or was it something real?
