@misslineman:  I say forget what everyone else thinks and wear your dream dress! We eloped and I still wore my dream gown even though so many people told me I should get a sundress or something less elegant. Your wedding day is your wedding day, you get to wear what you want! 


And heck, wear it in 10 years again for your vow renewal! However, I do love the first dress that you posted (the rouched bodice), but if that ballgown is your dream dress, wear it. 

Congrats on the little one! Yay for Spring 2014 babies! 😉

@misslineman:  i would not save your dress for 10 years.  that is a big dress to hold for ten years.  and no offense but i do not think many women stay the same weight and shape for 10 years.  i wish i looked like now what i was at 18!

I would sell dress #1 and worry about buying dress #2 after the baby comes.

I think the simple dresses are a bit better suited. Have you tried many on?

I think the best the thing to do when facing a dress regret situation is to imagine the dresses you love no longer exist which one would you be most upset about?

@misslineman:  I think the first of the simpler dresses would look great for a backyard wedding. Is that you in the picture? Cause if it is, it looks great on you.

@misslineman:  Maybe take a few layers out from under the dress? That would lighten the dress a bit. But if you do want to keep the volume, I have heard off a lot of people that wearing a hoop under the dress helps with air circulation and keeps the princess look. 

I was set on getting a red or black dress to suit my theme, my Mum even offered to get me a custom princess dress and everything.

But when it came to trying on dresses I fell in love with an Ivory trumpet with amazing bling detail. For ages I was thinking crap I soo mae the wrong choice, but I know now that yor dream dress will suit your wedding no matter how big or small the wedding is.

We are having a smallish wedding with about 50 – 55 people, (which is close family and friends) but I am going all out as if I where having a 200+ person wedding. But still being frugal, my MOH/Big Sister is my Angel on my shoulder to keep me in line.

Its not very often we get to feel glamourus and like a king or queen for a day.

Ooh, I LOVE the dress you have on! It looks great on you! Is that the Swiss Dot one from David’s Bridal? I really considered that one, but never got to try it on before I found THE ONE.

of the threee that you like that you posted i like the first one best–it’s simplicity is good for a backyard wedding. and it sounds like you’re not super into the ballgown anyway. i would pick whatever feels right/comfortable now, sell the ballgown, and then use the 10-year renewal to get whatever you love then.
