    I think you should go for the ballgown 🙂 Or stick with the original dress, both are gorgeous on you! I just personally prefer the ballgown 🙂

    LastGirlStanding:   I much prefer your original dress, and with your hair color and complexion the color of the dress is perfect.  And if your FI likes hourglass – the original dress shows that off the best, IMHO.

    I voted fit and flare, because I just think it looks awesome on you.  But the ballgown would be a good choice as well (I wish we could see a real picture!).  The original dress is nice too, and I’m not usually an A-line fan.  Either way, I don’t think you can go wrong here.  You have good options!

    Your original dress is such a stunner! I vote keep it 🙂 Your curves are like BOOM in that dress.

    FWIW, I also had dress regret. I’m now 6 weeks from my wedding and have discovered a good seamstress makes all the difference. Since I creeped your profile and I see you’re in Ottawa, I recommend With Love Bridal in Stittsville if you’re in the market for your alterations.

    The original dress looks great on you, makes your waist look so tiny!  I’m with you though, the one reason I got a big dress was because I can’t wear something like this again!  I too wish I could see the ball gown on you, but if you love it, I would go with that one.

    LastGirlStanding:  The A line and the ballgown are by far the best for your figure! You look absolutely amazing! Personally, I’m a fan of the ballgown but I do love the a-line too. Not a huge fan of the fit and flare on you. It doesn’t do nearly as much for your figure.

    I think you look gorgeous in your original gown.

    Whenever I came onto weddingbee looking for answers to any pre-wedding worries I feel now, looking back, that I always already knew deep down what I wanted/truly felt….and I was just looking for validation.

    Just the way you describe the three options:

    “should I keep my original dress- even though it doesn’t make me feel like a bride”

    versus:

    “…the ball gown I always had in my head”

    “….the fit and flare and show off my curves…”

    I may be wrong but the way you phrase the first option gives me the impression that you don’t feel happy with it compared to the other two. Once you feel that way there’s not much that other people will say to change your mind.

     If its in your budget & time-wise it will work then go for the dress that makes you happier, even if it means another dress. My sister changed her dress shortly after ordering it. It was a bit if a hassle at the store & there were tears but as soon as she found ‘the one’ she said a weight just lifted off her shoulders & she beamed with happiness. 

    For what it’s worth, you look pretty great in that first one to me!!…and the second….and the third!

    Your original dress looks so good on you and is beautiful!  The neckline is gorgeous with the bling and the sweetheart shape looks so flattering.  I don’t like the neckline of the ball gown & the fit n flare fits almost exactly like your dress. If you really want to & can afford it, get the fit n flare too but you have to where your original dress bc it’s too gorgeous on you & for you.

    I love your original dress and you look great! However, if you want more drama I think the ballgown would be great, especially with the tiara as there’s more space between all the sparkle.

    I’m dumb. .I just realized the ballgown neckline is sweetheart & not straight across.

    I have a weakness for tulle … I think it looks dreamy and bridal … I really love the fit and flare on you , since you’re asking I say Fit and flare its beautiful on you as is all the dresses you tiredon/have.

    Good look , let us know what you decide 🙂
