So I just found out that my mom actually preferred my second choice dress. And now I’m worried. I tried on the dress she loved at the first dress shop I went to. I loved it too and thought I would get it all day, and then fell in love with a different dress at the third dress shop we went to that day. And I bought the dress from the third dress shop. This was all six months ago. I just wish she had told me that day instead of waiting until now.
Anyway, I’m guessing I should just stick with the dress I bought, right? I’ve attached pictures of both. Which would you prefer, first (an Augusta Jones, in the first two photos) or second (an Amsale, in the last two photos)?

I absolutely love the first one you picked out, but I am a fan of lace. It is really up to you, how much time you have left, and the reasoning behind it. Are you only doing it because your Mom changed her mind? Or are you have regrets or doubts about your dress? I would really do some soul searching and make sure that is absolutely what you want to do. Judging from the time you have left, you only have about 4 months until the month of your wedding. So I would be quick to make up my mind before you don’t have that time left!

The same thing happened to me, but I didn’t really listen to my moms opinion… 🙂
I love both of the dresses, but the second one (Amsale) is my favorite. Its makes your waist look smaller, and your chest bigger. The Augusta Jones makes your chest look smaller.
Either way, they are both great dresses! Good luck!

The second one, no doubt about it. Gorgeous! Which one did you buy?

I love the first one. The second is nice, but I don’t like the belt thing, and the neckline is bland compared to the first dress.

Thanks for the comments!!
I bought the first one. I loved both, but I thought the first one flattered my figure more. Kinda felt like the amsale made my chest look funny/too big.
This is making me feel a bit better about my mom’s regrets 🙂

I love the second dress but you have to go with what you like. In my opinion, the Amsale dress is more flattering on you, but really its about what you like!
My Mom wanted me to get a different dress than the one I chose and 2 of my bridesmaids preferred the different dress as well. I went back and tried on both dresses again, and while I like the dress that my mom wanted me to get, when I put on the dress I ended up choosing, I just knew…
Hope this helps!

I like the first one best. I think you made a good choice. I agree that the second one makes you look more top heavy and the first one looks sleek. The one you picked looks so romantic.
