Ok, so I understand that I’m crazy, but I need help! I woke up this morning and decided that I don’t like my dress! Here are the pictures of my dress ($200) and another David’s Bridal dress ($500)! I’m such a symmetrical person and think that I look A LOT larger in my dress, than I do in the other DB dress. I have 8 days to make a decision! Also, my friend made a good point…. In the 2nd dress I have on a corset, so it helps my shape, but in MY dress picture I don’t, and I look huge! What do you think? HELP!

Oh man, there is no second dress! You can still find some undergarments that help conceal and create a nice shape for the dress you have. I think it does look nice! But, you can’t force it! I’m so with you on this- I’ve woken up and hated my dress 2 x’s now, I’m a basketcase apparently.

Here’s another pic of the DB dress that looks good on me!

Well they look kind of similar but if you really like the second one, which looks great on you, you only paid $200, I say go for it! Or look on their sale rack and start trying on more dresses and maybe you can find a bargain that you like even better? You will know when you don’t have to ask yourself…trust me, I’m a two dress bride! I knew the one was the one when I found it!

I agree they look similar…but YOU are beaming in the second dress. If it works for your budget, I say go for it!

Then again if you need any kind of alterations, 8 days probably won’t cut it! I say make a decision asap!

I like the first one better! You can have a corset put in….I really like it though. You should add a broach or or something in the middle to break it up. You look great, congrats!

I agree with you that the second dress is more flattering. If it’s within your budget I’d be swapping. Clearly by the look on your face you love the second dress and that’s the way you want to look on your big day! Goodluck.

So the corset is something that is worn under the dress right? Can you try on your 1st dress w/ a corset? What is the 8 days for? Is that when the dress is off layaway? My DB dress was $200 & I’m not going to get it, so you only lose your deposit, which is $20 but sometimes they’ll work with you & switch the deposit to a different dress if you stay with them.
You really look happy in the 2nd dress, so if you can afford it you should switch since you really seem to love it! It is also more flow-y so it compliments you more. If the extra $300 is a bit much for you, you could also go back to DB & try on a few other dresses. DB doesn’t usually allow pics unless you’re buying the dress, so be sneaky & take pics & then post em here so we can see ;).

What did you love about your dress that made you buy it? Just the $200 price tag? Or did you try it on initially with the corset as well?
A corset is a well worth it investment – I was deadset against wearing one (I still feel like they’re false advertising, haha), until I tried dresses on with and without… and I couldn’t believe how amazing my body looked with a little help! [random side note: I figure J has already seen every lump and bump there is, so he’ll know it’s false advertising, and the rest of the guests at our wedding need never know, haha]
Do you have an option to try the dress you own on again, but with a corset? I think that may sway your opinion a lot.
If it’s in your budget to pay the extra $300, especially if you can transfer the initial $200 towards the price of this dress (not sure if DB does this or not), and you really love the second dress, then go for it! Your dress can make your break your confidence (directly related to the infamous ‘bridal glow’, IMO) on the big day, so it’s a splurge that’s worth it!
