    @Pinkmoon:  I felt pretty guilty. In fact, it took me a long time before I was able to tell anyone else about it, and especially FI. He was kinda mad at first but eventually he accepted the fact that I was gonna get a different dress. FMIL and FSIL were kinda judgemental, but nobody looked at the new dress and at my old one and said that I should have stuck with the old one. 

    They were different silhouettes. My first was smaller a-line, shorter train. My second is a dropped waist ballgown, tulle, longer train. I felt my first dress was too small for my wedding, in a beautiful and huge church. Also my second has a corset which is what I wanted. Here are some pics to help… My first:

    @sweetpeony: 

    Oh my goodness ladies both of you made the right call. Your second dresses are perfect and definitely show stoppers. Way to listen to yourselves and go for it.

    @Pinkmoon:  girlll…thats funny we have the same situation. When i went dress shopping i had an idea in my head of a gorgeous fitted classic lace dress..i ended up buying the topaz just like you. dont get me wrong, its a gorgeous dress. but i kept having dress regret thoughts that wouldnt go away!!! i never wanted a poofy ruffly dress its just not me. Long story short i came across the lace dress of my dreams and it ended up being in my size so i was able to buy the sample. i immediatly felt so relieved! it was what i always pictured myself in. and it was totally meant to be!!! i only have 5 weeks until my wedding and i came across my dream dress a week ago!!! no alterations needed just getting it bustled as we speak. Go with your gut. you want to feel beautiful on your wedding day and if poofy isnt for you then look for something else. i couldnt live with myself knowing that i would regret my dress choice.

    I went from a huge ball gown princess tulle to slimmer mermaid cut. I think most girls dream of being a princess but it just seemed not me….

    @NVMox2480: this confirms to me that I shouldn’t get a ball gown (in a good way) sometimes I think I should have..
