    you still have tons of time. Wait a bit, try on other dresses, and if by like october you still don’t see yourself in this one then sell it and get a new one. You may just have to wiggle your budget around a little.

    this may sound a little “out there” but I think you might be able to alter that dress to be similar to the Sophia Tolli dress. You could start the blush tulle where the side beading is and cut out the fabric. Obviously it would be a mirror image of the Primrose. Of course who knows how much that will run you, but if you are resourceful enough you could find the tulle skirt on your own for cheaper and frakenstein it together for your dream dress!

    I’d say look for a different dress. This one makes you look bit… stiff. Uncomfortable. I definitely think a gown like the other one you were looking at would make you feel better. 🙂

    The drop waist on the ST dress would look better on your body type I feel – but I wouldn’t be tempted to put a sash with it.

    I’d try on other dresses ONLY if you really believe you’d be comfortable spending the money for something you find and love. Otherwise you’re just torturing yourself. Pick a can-do budget for Dress #2 and stick to it when trying dresses on. Alon the way, you may just find the Dress #1 is meant to be with some of the accessories you mentioned. I definitely think that adding a blush crinoline would be adding a huge amount of drama. That and a sparkle belt may make you love it!

    I really like the Maggie on you. The dress you bought is lovely but at the moment it is wearing you rather than the other way round.

    @Kayten:  I think your current dress would look a lot better with a hem job, some crinoline, and a more contrasting belt (perhaps pewter or blush). The problem with your current dress is that the bottom looks limp, but that could be easily fixed to make the silhouette look more like the Sophia Tolli.

    Of all the pictures you posted, I definitely like yours the best.  I would recommend trying it on with your hair and makeup done and with some jewelry more similar to what you would actually wear.  I think a blush sash with beaded lace sppliques and a lace veil would make a huge difference.  I also like the PP’s suggestion of trying it on with a mermaid crinoline.

    You can always put yours up for sale and see if you can recoup enough if accessorizing doesn’t help.

    i was a 3 dress bride so I know the feeling.  Just don’t make my mistake of a hasty 2nd choice because you panic:)
