It’s such a big decision!  I got a little caught up on my first dress shopping day and bought a dress that was beautiful, but just not “me.”  Everyone I was shopping with loved it and so did I.  Until I got it home 🙁 

It was uncomfortable, didn’t flatter my figure and I was getting serious anxiety over it!  After a lot of tears (because I really did love the dress, it was so pretty, just not for me) I decided to sell it and bought another dress online.  I never tried it on, just hoped for the best!  I ended up selling the first one, and loving the second one.  It is too big, being altered right now.  All in all I’m glad I changed my mind.  (With only 2 months to go!  EEEEK!)    I got very very lucky that it all worked out. 

That being said, if you don’t love your dress (for whatever reason) you shouldn’t feel like you have to wear it.  But if you do love it, stop looking at other dresses!  That just makes you second guess yourself.  Your dress is very pretty and it looks great on you.

You may want to try a higher waist line (is it called a natural waist line?). You are thin, but I think because of the low waist line in the dress you’re wearing, it isn’t showing off your figure (or it could just be because it isn’t fitted).

Re: venue. I don’t know where your venue is. 🙂 But I love fancy dresses regardless of venues. I actually like really formal attire in rustic or quant settings (so trendy, I know). I think your dress will fit your location no matter what (unless you have a 20 foot train). 😉
