I think both dresses are beautiful on you – but you have such a rockin’ figure, it’s hard to go wrong with a nice fitted a-line like those. And I really don’t think anyone else would notice the details you are worried about, unless you have snobby aristocratic in-laws or something. What do you like about the second dress? (And how does the price compare?)

ETA: If you decide that you do want a new dress, I’d recommend talking to your mom about it but not telling her that you went to a salon without her. Just mention your concerns about the dress.

They both look great on you, but I’m all about the other dress (2nd). I understand where you are coming from. In the end if your not happy, that’s all that matters. The 2nd dress looks so much more than the first.

You look beautiful in dress #1 but oh wow, #2 is gorgeous. Sorry, I’m not helping you much.

Could you try and get a refund since you just bought it and have tags on it, etc.?

Good luck!

You look beautiful in both dresses. 

Talk to your mother and see what she says, I’m sure she will only want you to be happy. See If you can refund it if not try and sell it although there is the chance of not getting back what you paid for it.

I really like the first one but the 2nd is also very pretty. I would keep the dress you already own, since it looks so great on you! There are millions of dresses that are going to look fabulous on you because you have such a great figure. I would try looking at the dress in different light and see if that helps(?). It’s just a few hours or a day at most-and you picked that dress for a reason, try to remember what those reasons were before you make any decisions.

That being said, you might just check around and see what the going rate on resell sites are for the 1st dress, then you can see about maybe selling it? Unless of course, money is not an issue. Definitely speak to your mom first and foremost 🙂 good luck

@leerey90:  I really hate when I have to agree with a dress regret post, but the 2nd dress is beautiful, for sure.

The first dress looks nice on you and I love the swoop of the skirt with tulle peeking out. The style and fit is nice but I agree, the fabric isn’t my favorite.

What time is your wedding and reception? Evening and low light would like a lot of those issues you’ve got with #1.

I definitely like the second way more. I would be honest with your sister & mom. In this situation, if you just keep quiet and keep your dress you are going to be one of those brides with dress regret after the wedding. It’s your wedding day so you should feel the most beautiufl and not be thinking about that other dress.

Yah, sorry to agree but the second dress is much more beautiful than the first. Hopefully your mom and sister will understand and you’ll be able to return or sell the original dress.

@leerey90:  They might get upset but it’s more important for you to wear what you want. It’s your wedding, your memories, and your body.

Can you speak to the bridal shop about returning the dress 1 and buying dress 2 from them? Since its been less than 3 dadys, and they aren’t losing any business from you. I don’t see why they won’t accomodate this.

While both gowns looks beautiful on you I prefer #2.

Oh! And I like the second one. It looks more elegant.
