I found a beautiful sweetheart satin fit and flare gown with ruching a few weeks ago that I fell in love with. I purchased the gown that day along with a beaded belt/sash to go with it. Sounds great, right?
Well…I am having second thoughts about the dress. Not because I don’t love the dress but because it isn’t “the dress” I originally saw myself wearing.
The style of dress I have “Ooh” and “Awed” over, time and time again, is a sweetheart fit and flare or A-line all lace gown with beaded belt.
BUT I picked something completely different!
I have tried on the Karena Royale by Maggie at a previous appointment and loved it but left without making a commitment…looking back at the photos from that appointment I am now flip flopping back and forth between the two and need some opinions!
Dress #1- Karena Royale Dress#2- Satin fit and flare Private Label
Has this happened to anyone else and if so, what did you end up going with?

I’ll be honest. As beautiful as the lace gown is, you look AMAZING in the satin gown! I think there’s a reason you chose this gown immediately, you are breathtaking in it!!!

I prefer the satin gown on you, it gives you a little more shape than the lace gown.
“sweetheart satin fit and flare gown with ruching…along with a beaded belt/sash.”
“sweetheart fit and flare or A-line all lace gown with beaded belt”
From the descriptions between your dream gown and this gown the only difference I can tell is that it’s not lace.

I pick the first gown.
Even though, to be fair, I think the second picture is unattractive all together. The head’s cut off, there’s harsh lighting on the dress. It looks a little blue. So maybe if the picture was better, I’d like gown two.

@honeybee1999: I think the way the picture was taken by the sales girl & the quality of the picture is what makes me rethink my decision. I agree the picture is not flattering.

I much prefer the satin one; I don’t think the lace one is very flattering on you, sorry.
You definitely made the right choice IMO.

I agree with PP that you made the right choice. I love how the satin one fits you, and i think the satin one is also more bridal on you
