    I like your dress better than the second one! But you could try it in–you might not like it!

    I’d go try it on! You only ordered 2 weeks ago, if you love the 2nd dress it might not be too late to cancel your order. If this were me, there’s NO way I could stop thinking about that other dress until I tried it on. But if you’re absolutely stuck with the first dress it would be a bad idea to try on the other one. 

    Were you able to try on a similar silhouette at the other salons?

    @cestvrai:  that’s great that they carry the same brand, hopefully and exchange won’t be an issue if you find yourself in a bit of a pickle! Good luck, I hope you be the result you want!

    I did the same thing with my dress.   Went through a bunch of dresses, tried one on, thought I found the one but decided to sleep on it before we went back to order it the next day.   Even though we didn’t purchase we had basically made our decision.   My mom was thrilled.  That night as I looked at the cell phone pictures I started to panic.   It didn’t look good and I kind of had a “what was I thinking” thought go over and over in my head.

    The next morning we went back to the boutique and I tried it on again.  MUCH BETTER.  don’t trust cell phone pics.   I think this might be half of the reason why salons don’t let you do it…bad for business in so many ways.   But a crappy cell phone shot at a crappy angle will make almost any dress look ick.

    My guess is there is no way you can try on that gown again?  you might get that good feeling if you do.   Unless I had MAJOR dress regret I would never purchase a second dress if I found something “better”  it’s way too much of an expensive hassle and it’s just a dress.   Only if you hate it and it brings you to tears is it worth it to get a new one, imho

    I understand the feeling/need to try on the second dress. I really prefer the first one. A lot. I have seen the second dress (or one like it) in like three weddings this summer and I am just not impressed. The important thing is how you feel in the dress.

    I had bad dress regret, cried myself to sleep every night, and had anxiety attacks every day. I found a new dress which I want to wear everyday, it’s perfect in every way. You’ll never know unless you try on the other dress, especially if you didn’t love the first one in the first place. Go with your gut, it’s your day!

    First of all I want to say that I like your dress much more than the second one…because your dress is simple but very different in the same time…

    on the other hand..there are so many brides nowdays who buy dresses similar to the second one…I have an impression that every other bride has a lace, fitted dress…I actually like dresses like that a lot, and I wanted to get a similar dress myself in the beginning..but then I realized that I want to buy something different..and I did..

    Right after I placed an order and got back home I had a panic attack..I realized that I don’t like it that much, that it is not my dream dress..But it was too late to cancel..now, after 3 months I actually love it…and it is very unique (especially the back)..and I didn’t see any brides in this dress…and it makes me happy..

    Your dress is absolutely beautiful! If I were tall I would have bought something like that for my ceremony, honestly I’d go with the dress you already have BUT I would go and try on the other one, that way you can really decide for yourself and that way won’t end up regretting it.
