    I love the new one, I wouldn’t change out of that one for the other one, no way! People will be like ” hey, put the pretty dress back on!!” the new one is simply gorgeous.

    I agree with FortiesFlare. Your new dress is absolutely stunning, I would not change from that one in to the other dress! I would sell it and wear your new one the entire time!

    Your new dress is amazing!! I bought my first dress, had regret, and then bought a second gown (also pronovias). I LOVEEEE my second gown and hate my first one!! You made the right choice with the 2nd gown By far!

    I love that shop where you tried on this dress! Sorry – totally off topic and random, but they’re so sweet there and the dresses are gorgeous!!

    Your second dress is just fabulous!! I wouldn’t change out of that dress into the other – I just don’t think the first can hold a candle to that dress! Also, I’m not a fan of changing dresses in general for brides – I think it’s a bit of a waste of time!

    Congrats on finding a beautiful dress!

    @SleepyBee:  When I started scrolling through the pictures I was thinking “Oh no, I hope this isn’t her old dress that she hates- its so beautiful!” Luckily it was your new one! It is stunning. Seriously. It is different and floaty and ethereal like. I love the beading and I’m not a huge beading fan. I love the sweep bustle in the back. I like everything about it. It is a seriously great dress, you did well.

    And yes it is totally normal to drive yourself this crazy– at least it was for me. I had a dress I bought online as a sample (a beautiful pronovias), sold it after developing dress regret (took me 6 months and a 70% loss to get rid of it), bought ANOTHER sample dress (one that was almost $4,000!!!!) and still never got the teary eyed moment. My new dress is as close as I’ve ever come to having that moment, and I’ve tried on probably 150+ dresses.

    It’s werd because I’m a very emotional person, and very girly, and I love dresses. But I just foudn so many that I DID like, even loved. It was hard to find one that stood out. I felt like all of the dresses were starting to look alike though, so I am so glad my dress is different than every other mermaid satin ruffly thing you see.

    Yours is different and wonderful and you made the right choice.

    Love the new dress! I’ve never had dress regret myself, but think this new dress is perfect for you! Much more elegant than your original.

    @SleepyBee:  I’m in the minority, but I do not like the new one at all. Its got way too much going on for me. But if you like it, then go for it.

    New one is drop dead stunning!! Don’t change for the old one, it does absolutely nothing for you. The first dress deserves to be on display all night long!!!
