    Are you unhappy with your dress? Do you have it in your budget to buy a different dress?

    I would say, if you have the money, go ahead and try the David’s Bridal one. I doubt it’s going to look better than the ballgown one, though, but I think you need to get it out of your head, but only do it if you have the money, just in case you fall in love with it.

    And bridesmaid dresses and wedding dresses are structured completely differently, so I wouldn’t necessarily go by what you’ve tried on before.

    Go with what makes YOU feel beautiful. I don’t think your dress is too “prom.”

    I really can’t say what you should do if you haven’t tried the dress on, but I’m getting the feeling that dress #2 is the dress that you really want. 

    I think you should hold off on making any decisions, or asking for too many opinions, until you’ve tried the second dress on.

    Just throwing this out there.. but are you really unhappy with your dress, or the way you look in your dress?

    I have a dress that I don’t think I look amazing in… but that’s because I am not happy with my current weight. I see other dresses I love, and sure it’s tempting to get something else… but I don’t regret my dress per se. I don’t think *any* dress would make me happy at the moment.

    Is this your fourth or fifth dress now? I think you need to have more confidence in your choices maybe and stop second guessing. I know its hard but maybe ban yourself from looking at other dress options.

    I have the second dress! It’s absolutely gorgeous, but I will warn you. The beading gets stuck in the lace all the time. Just walking around causes lots of snags and it’s difficult to undo

    @jbbs1222:  of course, but it has to have an end point at some stage, right, otherwise you could just keep buying, selling and buying another dress right up till the wedding day. i think you just have to focus in why you picked your current dress and what made you love that style on you? Doubts and second guessing is normal for most people but not to the extent of being onto your fifth dress…

    The ball gown looks gorgeous on you! I think lace adds size to anyone no matter if theyre a size 0 or 20! Thats my opinion however. If I were in your situation, and I kept dreaming of the lace gown, i’d just go for it. Choose whichever one you subconsciously envision yourself walking down the aisle in.

    I vote another altogether. I vote an empire waisted ball gown.
