You look beautiful in the dressyou wore. My biggest fear is I will hate my dress when it comes in, thanks for the advice.

I think you made a great choice for that second dress. You look breathtaking in it! Thanks for the advice, I am getting ready to go dress shopping in the next couple of weeks.

You looked amazing on your wedding day! I love the fact that both parents walked you down the aile! The pictures just kept getting better and better.

you definitely made the right decision. you look TEENY TINY in the 2nd dress. you looked more like a size 4 than a size 14!

You made the right decision, the first gown looks too big and makes you look big, the second one looks great and I’d agree with PP, you don’T look like a 14 at all!

I would agree with all of your tips. I too bought a dress early on that both my parents loved and later, while shopping for a MOB dress found a sample gown that fit perfectly and was so much more my style.

This was a great post, so first of all thank you!

You did look amazing in your second choice, it was a wise one. You looked beautiful and seems like you felt this way too because the photos are great!

Great advice. I nearly made a similar mistake by nearly getting the first dress I tried on and ruling out others, but I luckily listened to my heart. Good decision to go for the 2nd dress. I remember seeing your recaps and posted how amazing you looked ๐Ÿ˜‰

I did the same thing, bought a dress that was good enough and then found what I really wanted later one, and I am still stuck with the original dress!! Yell
