So I ordered my dress, Watters Cabo, a few months ago and it is finally here. I had been having some regret while waiting for it but now it is worse.
Originally I went dress shopping with my friends and family while I was home visiting and found a dress we all fell in love with Allure 8908:
Then when I got back to Caifornia where I live I went to order the dress….being the curious cat that I am, I tried on more dresses. That is when I found Cabo and made the impulsive decision to buy her. Now she is here and I am stuck with a dress I am not so happy with! It is a gorgeous dress but I keep thinking about the Allure dress that I fell in love with originally and wish I would have just ordered that one.
My wedding is in 11 weeks…not enough time to order the Allure but I have been searching high and low for someone selling it. SO what should I do? Keep the Cabo or try to find the Allure dress?
Here are pics of me in each. The Allure dress was like 4 sizes too big so it’s hard to get an idea of how it would look in my size.

I prefer the Cabo on you! It shows off your figure in a great way! I’m not a fan of the wide belt on the Allure, makes your torso look short. Once you have your hair, makeup, and veil on I’m sure you’ll be happy with your choice. It isn’t worth fretting over, imo, with your wedding so close!

The second dress is truly beautiful but I think you generally look nicer in that photo. Perhaps u should do your hair and makeup and try on the Cabo, take a few more pics and see if u like it more. Otherwise go get the Allure. I bought 2 dresses but luckily I got all my $ back from my first dress.

Love the Allure dress on you really. Simple and elegant. I hope you’ll be able to find this dress! Good luck!

I love the Cabo dress on you. It’s beautiful and really shows off your beautiful figure. For some reason the Allure just doesn’t have that wow factor for me when I look at photos of you in both dresses. The Cabo just looks so spectacular that the Allure doesn’t even come close IMO. I think it has something to do with what arabesque mentioned about the belt in the Allure. It does seem to cut off your torso in a not so flattering way.
If I were you, I’d stick with the Cabo. Trust me, it looks amazing on you, and you’re going to look even more spectacular with your make up and hair done. 🙂

Both dresses are lovely, but I think the Cabo is more flattering on you. It’s really lovely and enhances your figure!

You look fabulous in the Cabo!

It seems like the Allure cuts off in a weird place. I know it was too big, but it doesn’t give you as nice of a shape as the Cabo does. They are both pretty though. I’d stick with what you bought, and maybe get some fabulous earrings or something to make you feel better about it?
I had dress regret too, and it’s rough, but in the end I loved my original dress and I’m glad I didn’t spend more money on something that wasn’t that important in the scheme of things. Good luck!

The allure actually looks better on you, and it’s beautiful.

I much, much prefer the Cabo!

I honestly like the Cabo better. There’s something magical about it that is so flattering. The Allure is gorgeous but somehow too plain.

Thanks so much ladies for all the input. I am still torn but am going to try adding a sash to the cabo and see if that helps 🙂

Keep the Cabo! It looks amazing on you! The belt on the Allure cuts you in half.

I think both dresses look great on you but personally like the Cabo better. It really shows off your figure where the allure hides it.
By The Way did you get the Cabo from Flares Bridal in WC? I got my dress from there and have been in that salon so much I can recognize it anywhere.
