I ordered a badgly mishca dress and monique lullhier train online from ShopBop this week and when I got it I sort of liked it at first, but then was unsure the next day and am now thinking about returning it because I feel that the way the fabric falls is not flattering/adds weight and makes it heavy.
I saw another dress on the ShopBop site I think could be a cool wedding dress, please let me know what you think. Should I return my original dress/tulle train? Should I order the second dress? (my wedding will be outdoors/backyard in the evening)
the dress I ordered (without train and with train)

I think that the dress you have is pretty, but if you don’t love it, you should get a different one. However, if I were you, I’d be worried that if I bought a dress online again, I wouldn’t like it again. If I were you, I’d go to stores and actually try on dresses and buy one that way, that way you could see if you do actually love it. 🙂 That’s what I’m looking forward to most in the wedding-planning process, trying on dresses!!

bellaJax2014: I think the dress you have is BEAUTIFUL. It is also so versitile. The fact that you can have an amazing gown for the ceromony and then an elegant grecian godess dress for the reception is something not many people are lucky enough to have without buying two dresses.
I think the dress is perfect on your body shape. At the end of the day though you need to do what makes you happy and what makes you feel amazing on your special day.

Honestly? You could wear the A&O dress any time, any day. It’s pretty but doesn’t really seem like a wedding dress.
The dress you have is definitely a “wedding dress” (and personally I think it’s beautiful!). Has it been fitted to you? If the fit is slightly off, it will affect the drape of the fabric. Also, have you tried it with your jewellery/veil/hair done? The smallest details can make the biggest impacts.
If you’re truly unhappy with it though, I’d return it and keep looking.

bellaJax2014: Wow! I love the first one on you, and agree with Ames1987: I don’t think the 2nd one is bridal at all.

The dress you have is gorgeous and it looks good on you.
