    Personally I would switch to the lace dress. They are both very pretty but the lace dress is so flattering on you.

    The lace dress is gorgeous on you, and looks like it was made just for you.

    I prefer the dress you picked, and you look so happy in it! However, if you are having doubts and you only ordered it yesterday you might be able to cancel it. I don’t think you need to tho- I had some doubts the next day just because it’s such a huge decision! I am glad I stayed with my dress! Buyers remorse is common with every decision, so if you were sure at  the time you bought it, i would stick with it. You look amazing in the dress you chose!

    the dress you chose is beautiful and will be even more stunning when it is the right fit to your body.  The lace dress is petty, what I liked about it was the higher back defined your shape from the back.  The tulle on the first dress is not too puffy and will trail nicely when fitted.

    I do prefer the lace one better, but I don’t know if it would be worth it to buy that one too (unless you still have time to cancel the first one).  The one you bought is nice as well. 

    Some layers of tulle can be removed if you want it to be less poufy.

    zola87:  I think that the dress you ordered is beautiful and I love the back but I just don’t care for the neck line. If there is some way to remove the mesh or whatever on the neckline and keep the back, I think it would be 100% a winner for me. If that’s not possible, you rock that 2nd dress too! you will look beautiful no matter what!

    i love the dress you picked, and it looks so great on you – it’ll be amazing once it’s fitted to you! i feel like 8 out of 10 brides are wearing dresses exactly like the lace one

    I prefer the dress you picked. Once its fitted properly I think it’s very flattering. Yes, the photo on the right is very flattering but that dress has been done like a billion times. (Bees seem to really love that type of style so I’m not suprised the poll is skewing towards it).

    I would trust your vision- they are very similar in shape but the details are so great in the one you bought- unusual fashion forward details like you wanted. Lace is gorgeous but seen that dress a million times. The illusion dress will be just as flattering when it fits you and with proper undergarments. Tulle can be removed for less puff.

    I think the dress you ordered is beautiful, but I did vote for the other one. I think if you are unsure of the tulle on the bottom, you might always feel unsure about it. <br /><br />Both dresses look amazing on you, so whatever you chose to go with in the end you will be one stunning bride!

    I really like both dresses and don’t think you can go wrong with either. But my personal style leans toward the first one. I don’t think the tulle is too poofy but you can always remove a layer. The second one is very common (but timelessly beautiful).

    I suspect the pictures are giving you dress regret because the sample of the dress you bought doesn’t fit. Once it’s fitted it will be gorgeous! The other sample seems to fit better and is pinned, and I think that’s what’s making the difference. Once the first one fits, you’ll be in love again!

    You are glowing in the dress you ordered. I think I would stick with it. Once its altered to fityou correctly it will be stunning.

    I love the one you picked!! The back is stunning and the tulle is romantic. It is definitely a bit different which is great. The keyhole is beautiful but much more common.

    You look SO happy in the dress that you ordered. I second the PPs that said it will be perfect once its the proper fit. Pictures may not do it justice right now because its clearly the wrong size. But if you are having doubts, the time to do something about it is now. Maybe you should go back and try both dresses on again so you don’t have to spend the next several months in doubt. Good luck and congrats!
