I was so excited – my Vera Wang dress was FINALLY in, I tried it on, took some pics, the dress looks good. But I was never “in love” with the dress, (it was just one of many that I liked and my mom ultimately made the decision for me) and I gave up on that feeling so many brides claim to experience when they found THE ONE. I scheduled my alterations, and now I just have to get in shape for the actually fittings!
And then I saw the beauty from Douglas Hannant. I couldn’t stop looking at the pictures online. I am IN LOVE with the gorgeous folds even though I could risk looking like a giant cocktail napkin.
Today, during lunch, I went into the boutique and tried it on. It’s wild! And I love it! And they could make it all white!
So now i am a little torn – should I sell the Vera Wang dress and buy this new dress? Or is that too much stress (trying to find a buyer willing to pay almost full price, since this is brand new and un-altered), and I should just stick with that I have?
What do you gals think? They are such completely different dresses…

the first is lovely, the second is epic!! I personally like the first best, but am also a fan of structurally interesting dresses… have you gotten any feed back from your friends? go with your gut, if you’re stuck on the second one don’t worry about selling the first (unless you need the money in order to buy the second).

Not a fan of the second one, your first dress is gorgeous IMO.

I can appreciate that the second dress is interesting to look at, but I’d stick with your first choice.

I think the Hannant is cramazing and would sell the Vera (clearly I am in the minority)

I love them both and I get why you like the new one, but the first one is just lovely and it is a perfect bridal gown.
