@NauticalDisaster:  You hit the nail on the head when you said: 

“I’m undecided between the two. I’m trying to figure out if the excitement came from ”me in a beautiful purple dress” or ”me in my wedding dress”. 

Answer that and you’ll know. If you feel its your wedding dress you will feel bridal and you won’t regret it. If you just think its an awesome purple dress, you might not like it years down the road. It’s true that a wedding is really that only chance to rock a fabulous white gown, however, if thats not you, why does it matter? All that matters is you feel great on the day you marry the person you love. 

Now which dress will make you feel that? 🙂

Why not wear both? Use the white one for the ceremony and then change to the purple one for the reception. It’s pretty common for women to do that nowadays, and both of them seem like good value purchases.

This is no help to you but I love that purple dress.  I see a white fur stole and white flowers.  Dang thats pretty!

@NauticalDisaster:  I wouldn’t worry too much about what other people think – you can just say “oh, I wanted to wear something more relaxing and fun after the ceremony” or “I was too worried I’d spill something on my white dress during the meal!” (or if you want to be really sneaky, keep the train and say you don’t want to get the train dirty/snagged during the dancing!). It’s your wedding, wear what makes you happy. You can also mix it up and get some photos in purple and some in white.

could you get a china version of the purple one? dressilyme’s purple dresses or a purple prom dress? and then rock two dresses? your first dress IS really beautiful.

so glad that you found a gown you love! i think it’s a great idea to do the two dress thing. there are lots of good excuses (the purple one is easier to dance in, you wanted to do color but also wanted to respect tradition, etc.).

@NauticalDisaster:  That is one fabulous purple dress. I could see pairing it with an ivory mantilla veil and it would totally scream bride.
