well i chose a dress i loved before i thought of a theme for my wedding, and i came up with a vintage theme i wanted. and although it hasnt arrived yet, i do still like the dress, but while i have been waiting i have been looking at others and have found a PERFECT dress for the vintage theme i was looking for.
this is the original dress, and although i like it very much, it really doesnt have the vintage feel to it….. its a Demetrios dress
so i then looked around and found THIS…….and if i had seen this one first i would have ordered it..this is the Justin Alexander 8465 ……
now i HAVE thought about getting the JA aswell the Demetrios, but its not really gonna be worth it, because i am having a 5.30 beach wedding. if i had been getting married early, then i could change dresses, but as its late, its really not worth it……or is it?
or do i wait until my Demetrios arrives and try see if i fall in love with it all over again?
and if i cant get the JA out of my head, i could buy it and maybe selll the Demetrios unworn…..?

So the Demetrios one is lovely and so dramatic – and the second one is dainty and gorgeous and PERFECT for a beach wedding. No wonder you’re torn! I would probably err on the side of first instincts and wait for your first gown to arrive – and if you’re not 100%, try selling & swapping. Have you tried both dresses on/seen real brides in both dresses? That sometimes makes things seem less ‘modelly’ and more realistic, you know? Both beautiful, though!

@anne B: I’m sure there’s a bee on here with that JA dress. I think yours is vintagey, especially with the flower details.

thanks girls and i do think that i have time to wait, and see if the Demetrios is the one for me. and if its not then i can sell and get the JA one.
i dont get married til next May, but the Demetrios has been in my head since LAST year, so i know i didnt choose it too quickly.
i had thought that the JA IS perfect, and maybe if i had it in another colour……i could still have it for my pre-wedding party the evening before. if i decide to keep the Demetrios dress that is probably what i will do.

I love the Demetrios gown. It’s vintage in a dramatic way and I find that very unique. If I were in your place, I would wait for my dress to arrive and wear it again. You obviously ordered the dress because you loved it. If you don’t get this feeling,trying it again, then think about ordering the other one. With all these gorgeous and different gowns out there it’s only natural to doubt your choice but don’t rush into buying another dress and spending more money. Well, if you don’t have budget issues you probably won’t mind, but you get my point.

well i definately do have budget issues , LOL but i didnt want to wear one dress while secretly yearning for the other one if you get what i mean.
i will wait though, because as you said, the reasons i ordered the dress in the first place was because i loved it, and i might again once i am wearing it
