Sometimes I loooove the dress I bought, there’s something a little unique about it and my family fell in love with it. But I can’t stop thinking of the dress I loved but the family wasn’t wow’d by it. It is simple (but simple can be good) but i was told it was a dress scene at a million other weddings. I can easily sell my dress and get a used gown to cancel out the additional cost but should I? Am I over analyzing all of this?
I bought the dress with the straps.
I cant go wrong either way but I love them both! FYI-winter wedding!

I voted for Dress 1 before I knew that you already purchased Dress 2.

Go with the one you bought! I would prefer it without the straps, but that’s an easy alteration.

I voted for dress one, your figure looks amazing in it!

I’m surprised by the poll results, because the mermaid is STUNNING and makes so much more of an impact than the first dress.

I like the dress you bought better!

I would remove straps from dress 2 which make it simpler. I then would add a silver or shimmery petticoat to the bottom for a winter feel or do a pretty lace quarter sleeve. Maybe it isn’t simple but more romantic you were leaning towards? I think that is what is missing.

@Keetie84: i love them both on you. pick the one that makes you feel like you want to feel on your wedding day.
are those halter straps detachable? i think i might like it better without the straps.

Dress one just looks cleaner on you… so i voted that. IMHO dress 2 looks a little fussy… 🙂

Honestly I think it’s just the quality of the photos that are getting people to vote #1… The one you bought is great! It is more unique… as in the first one could be any bride at any wedding. I love the dramatic angles in the second dress, but I think it’s just the lighting and the camera position that are throwing people off. Stick with the one you have, but I would also remove the straps.

I personally love the dress you went with. It’s not something I’ve seen on the bee! I think my favorite part is the straps. So cool!

I really like dress 2 without the straps. It’s very flattering and gives you better shape than dress 1

@missmorganista: thanks, I think it’s unique as well which is why i listened to my family. I think they’re both great so it’s causing me over analyze my decision. I didn’t want to look like every other bride so maybe I did make the right choice. 🙂

dress 2 is much more flattering to your figure in my opinion!

@AllieBee12: Good point, you’re right. The picture quality on the mermaid is poor.
