I bought a dress, lost weight and got to get a refund. I bought a used dress on line and decided it didnt look pretty out side, and it was not beach friendly. Its a Monique luo for $300 and I ripped out the ribbing for comfort and so I couldnt sell it. He thought it was stunning, I think cuz it was a fit and flair so its on the sexy side. I saw the wtoo olivia in oatmeal and had to have it.. I got it that weekend on sale, ment to be kind of thing. Im worried that its not sexy enough and his jaw wont drop, I see these other dresses and how classy they are and think I need a new dress. Im loseing my mind, dont want to stop trying on dresses and yet my mind cant stand not having it figured out. Sleepless nights of wedding dresses and why all the pressure for the one? With one dress in consignment and the other to be picked up in a few days. I could trash the used one for pictures or try and sell it. I could sell curent dress and make profit, and try to find another or wear it cuz I adore it, but my mind changes styles every month…. This is the Olivia I bought.
this is the monique luo, stunning with inside lighting. But wedding is on the beach. In other pictures it looks pretty stiff. But I also want to sparkle!!! I hate that this is so hard. TOO many options !!!!

You need to calm down! Personally I like the top dress better, but it’s your wedding. Wear what you adore! It seems like you feel a lot of pressure right now, so maybe you should take some time away from dresses. Maybe away from wedding stuff altogether for a little while. Your FI will love you in anything. The most important thing is not the dress ( I know so much pressure!) But honestly the most important thing is that you are marrying the person you want to spend the rest of your life with. Anything else is just details. No matter what you pick you can make it look amazing. It would look better if you feel better and more confident in it. Plus, you can always sell the other dress on ebay or whatever. and if you like the sparkle of one, you can always add sparkle to the other.

Nah, I don’t think you’re a loony. Then again, I just received my third dress. I went from loving pickups and satin, to hating it, and loving organza and ruffles.. Oh damn, no, give me MORE ruffles and less bling!
I feel ya honey.

You’re not a lunatic! I bounced back and forth for months then finally decided but now I’m regretting the silhouette I chose, basically like you. It’s freaking hard to just pick one!

- Wedding: August 2013 - The Liberty House
Not a lunatic, we’ve seen WAYY worse on here =) I prefer the white one but it would also probably be amazing in a TTD shoot. Don’t worry about what your FI will think, because all he’ll be thinking is, “OOH BRIDE! AND IT’S MINE”

@miakodamysweet1: I like the idea of trashing the used dress. I think trash the dress photos on a beach/in the ocean are stunning!
It’s not unusual to change your mind a lot about something like this, but let me just say I love the Olivia. Love it. However, it is obviously your wedding we’re talking about here. If you don’t think you’ll love it in your wedding photos or worry that you’ll be incredibly uncomfortable throughout the ceremony and reception, it may not be the best choice. If you do feel confident and beautiful and comfortable when you put it on, though, it’s most likely the right dress for you.
That’s probably not very helpful, but you may just have to take a couple of days to step back and reevaluate. You’re not crazy, and you definitely don’t want to drive yourself crazy trying to choose!

I know how you feel, my ring has been ordered and I am tempted to keep looking around but I don’t just to avoid this issue! personally I am more of a romantic and think the first dress is gorgeous, at the end it’s your choice so it’s hard to help and odds are you will be on this same spot next week with yet another dress, sorry I can’t be more helpful, I will probably be like you in a few months!

Thanks lady’s for your amazing words of awesomeness! I do feel better. Im glad im not the only one, and my heart goes out for those of us that have had a difficult time. I dont want to take out the fun of this. I love the olivia and think I will splash in the ocean the other for fun and pics, I had my reasons for choosing them both. We will just renew our vows every ten years and Ill get to wear every dress my little heart yerns for, before I die lol. No spell check so bear with me…

I love the top dress, but you did mention your having a beach wedding. Personally I would go with the second one for the theme.

@miakodamysweet1: I know how u feel its a tough choice!!! i look at dresses almost every day and still cannot decide!! For some reason though, when I see other people in dresses their choice seems easy!
i like both dress but i definintely prefer the monique lu…it is dreamy and sparkly and wud look great on the beach esp if its afternoon into the evening.it will sparkle during the reception!!! its amazingly beautiful!!
I dont know how the poufy olivia will work on the beach?! i find it ALOT less beachy than the monique. I guess my major concern wud be for the olivia is that sand wud get trapped in the tulle and u’ll be carrying around sand castles!
With that said, both r beautiful dresses and u will look gorgeous in both. And I know this will confuse u even more…but I’m sure u will appreciate the honesty 🙂
