Ok girls. I had been hiding a horrible secret the last two weeks. As most of you know almost two months ago I bought my red dress for my wedding. here is the post of that dress. http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/this-si-the-one-please-bees-dont-kill-me-my-dress The last two weeks I been thinking and thinking. I loved a dress in Davids Bridal from the Galina line but it cost soooo much (it wasnt that much, but it was out of my budget). Looking one day in the Classified section on Weddingbee I found this beautiful costume made dress. The bride never used it and the measurements where really close to mine. The dress only cost $170.00. After much thinking and calling all my friends and asking them what to do, I bought the dress. At first I was so scare because i didnt knew what to expect. It was only $170. After I pay the lady all these terrible thoughts came to my mind. I was thinking maybe the dress wanst going to fit me, the lady will never send me the dress after i paid, the dress was going to be horrible on me.
Well the dress came today and here are the pictures. Of course it needs a shorter hem. Im really short. The straps at the top need to be shorter and it need a loudry service to iron it. But as soon as I put it on it felt so weird. I started crying and my FI was amazed. He love the dress and how it fit (yes, I dont believe in superstitions) I texted my neighbor and she came running and as soon as she saw me her mouth drops. I knew I found the one. I didnt felt this way with the red dress.
here are some pictures. The bolero is the one from my other dress. Im very self conscious about my big arms. But tell me, what you think?? Do you like it better that the red one?? What should I do with the red one?? Should I sell it??
I offer my apologies to all of two dresses bride that in the past I didnt understood. Now I know what all of you felt. =)

That looks great on you!! I love it!! And $170 can’t be beat with a stick!
Can you change into the red one at the reception?

That dress is gorgeous (but I loved your red dress too)!! In all honestly I think your arms look great in that dress, even without the bolero. I think if you do decide to still wear a little jacket, a little softer color might look nice (like grey or red) because the black is a harsh contrast to the white of the dress.

I think you have found your dress! Don’t worry, I think being a “two dress” bride is just normal for lots of us; sometimes it takes that many dresses for us to be sure!
The feeling you had when you put it on says it all. Listen to your heart! 🙂
And also, you can always wear the red one towards the end of the reception and have some pictures in that, too!
I love the red flower in your hair, too!
Congrats, you look beautiful (and your arms, too)!

Oooh I LOVE this one! I know you were so excited about the red one, but this one is SO gorgeous on you!!! It gives you a great hourglass figure! Definitely definitely keep this one! And the little bolero is so cute with it! The only thing I would suggest is maybe thicker straps? They look a bit skinny nightgown-y to me. I think a thicker strap to match the dress will really add a lot and give you a bit more support when you get to the dancing part of the evening! Yay! I keep scrolling up to look at it again, it’s so perfect for you!!!!

The red dress is fabulous…I liked that one as soon as I saw your pics in it…but the new dress is magical on you (truely!) and I think the straps/neckline is very sweet in the last picture (where you are showing your arms) but I’m sure you could find a simple bolero that would match. It is LOVELY! $170? lucky ducky!

i second babyboo on the bolero, your arms look good even without it but if you go with it i i like the grey or red better

I love this dress!!! I agree with @PrncssDva- can you wear the other one at your reception?! That would be a neat outfit change :]

I like it a lot better on you. But I would use a white bolero… the black one makes you disproportioned a little bit whereas when you don’t wear any you look very good. If you need “coverage” (ie Church settings) use a white bolero instead.

Your arms are fine! I wouldn’t even wear the bolero. I like your red dress, but I LOVE this one. It’s perfect on you!
Maybe the red one can be your Rehearsal Dinner dress.
