Gah! I bought my dress

I bought my dress this afternoon after four hours in the biggest bridal shop that I have ever seen and I have already fallen out of love with it and back in love with it in the five hours since! Did you have bridal dress buyer's remorse? Is this normal?

I bought my dress immediately after getting engaged... and I go back and forth ALL the time. I need to start with fittings, so it will finally feel like MY dress. I bought it used, as it was a popular designer dress (i.e. $$$$)... so I need for it to actually feel like me.

Wow! Congrats! Is it not-white???

ps - I think mixed feelings after are totally normal. I continued to dress shop on-line for *weeks* after I put a deposit on my dress.

congrats!! And don't worry, that feeling is normal, you just have to trust that your instincts were right. I'm sure you will be gorgeous!

I'm sure it's gorgeous! Tell us more since I know you don't want to put pics up. That's very personal. I bought my dress a week after getting engaged and I'm on the hunt again. It's not exactly buyers remorse because I can wear the dress for other occasions - that's why I bought it. But now it just doesn't have that uber-special feel I want it too. but now, I'm terrified of going shopping. I can't do white. I just can't.

Thank you lovely readers for your support and letting me know I am not losing it. I ordered my dress in ivory (at heart I am a traditional girl and really couldn't picture anything else). I promise I would post more thoughts and details soon! Thanks again!!
