    @jleast09:  #1 #1 #1 The first dress is elegant and classy, beautiful and sweet! The second dress is ok. A little shiny and cream puffy.

    I don’t like the flowery dress.  I think the first is pretty — I always thought I’d have an all white gown too but I ended up with an ivory dress w/champagne colored underlay.  Looked better with my coloration lol.

    oh WOW that first dress is BEAUTIFUL. I think you should keep it.. you bought it for a reason! Remember that first feeling. I too, went with a dress I hadn’t expected..sometimes I feel a bit bad for shopping quickly, and buying the first dress I tried on + what I hadn’t expected, but then I just look at the picture, and all that doubt goes away. There will always be more dresses to try and on love, but will any of them be YOUR dress?

    I prefer the first dress.  It is stunning!  I agree about making the neckline sweetheart, but I think the underskirt is fine as is.

    @gm234:   P.S. you don’t have to cry when you find the right dress..some people do, some people don’t. that doesn’t mean it wasn’t the perfect dress.

    Your dress is GORGEOUS! I like it WAY more than the second one!

    I LOVE the first dress! But, go with your gut. If you feel like you really love the 2nd more, or just want to keep looking – you still have time to do that. But for the record, my vote is to keep that gorgeous first one!

    @jleast09:  I like the first one much better. The second one seems too frilly even without the top flowers. I think the first one will be stunning with a sweetheart neckline and I love how the sheer overlay is such a contrast to the bottom layer. I think if you do alterations on it, you will absolutely love it and it will be one of a kind!

    I really love the first one – it is elegant and the other reminds me of a cream puff.

    I’m not sure what to tell you to “do”, but here’s my thoughts on what I see. These dresses are VERY differnt and I wonder if you figured out what it is you really want in such a short time. Will you be sad you didn’t end up with a full skirt or train? Personally, I prefer the first one, and really don’t care for the second. However, it seems like you had something in mind and didn’t get a chance to explore it very much. I could be wrong. Perhaps you did and went a different direction than you were picturing (I know I did). From my own experience and what I can tell from what you post, I think you’ll miss some of the elements from dress 2. I wrote and canceled a check for the dress I thought I wanted. Wrote and cancelled a check for the dress my b’maids thought I should wear. Finally I went to a designer and had her make the dress I want, and I could not be happier– even though the process was exhausting and sometimes discouraging. I think if you can get out there and keep sifting through dresses, you should.

    P.S. The experience is RARLEY ‘say yes to the dress’! It’s usually a whole lot more stressful! I should know because the second dress I was pressured into was in the Brides by Lori boutique in ATL . . . I had to make a snap decision for a dress that was not what I was looking for. Understanding that is Step One Smile

    Don’t be afraid to make mistakes! It will work out! Good luck!

    The first one looks elegant and bridal.  The second one kinda looks like it was made from a shiny tablecloth, it doesn’t really look bridal.  If you really like the design of the second one I’d at least try to find a similar design in a better fabric.

    I love the one you got. Honestly… I think the 2nd one has a lot going on and I’m not really a fan of it.

    I love my dress, but I didn’t cry when I found it/tried it on.

    I like the second dress for its uniqueness.
