Okay, bees. I did that thing we all say we’re not going to do and I looked online after I got my dress and ended up having the dreaded dress regret. So, now I have 2 dresses, one I bought new, and one I bought pre-loved. Some quick facts – the Galina needs to be altered,as it’s the new one. The VW doesn’t but I won’t have a bustle. I’m not wearing the correct bra in the VW photo. I am usually super decisive, so this is really driving me nuts! Help!

Dress 1 is simple, elegant, chic and you look absolutely amazing. I can’t imagine having dress regret with that one! 🙂

Well, since you own both wear both. One for the ceremony and one for the reception. You look amazing in both, I can totally see why it would be a tough choice.

They are so different! I prefer dress 1 – its classically beautiful yet unique.

You guys are so great! Thanks for all of the input! I should have added this: I would like to sell the one I don’t wear. I went way over my budget by buying both, thinking I would try to sell the one I don’t want. The Galina might be an easier sell, since it’s unaltered with tags still on it, but I’m not sure. What do you guys think about that? Has anyone tried to sell a gown online yet? I bought the VW on preownedweddingdresses.com and it was a good experience.

They are both GORGEOUS. I voted for #2 but I’m honestly torn. You can’t go wrong with either, and judging by the poll results, we aren’t really helping your decision any 😉

Wow, you really look great in both of them. For once I had a really hard choice at one of these!
Personally, number 2 is not my style, but I think it looks freaking amazing on you. It gives such a “wow” factor..the colour looks very nice as well.
You can’t really lose with either choice, but in this case, I think #2 is my choice for you!

@BisBeanBrien: I think it depends on the feel of your wedding. If it’s a beach affair, or a more casual one, I’d go with the first dress. If it’s an evening wedding that is a little more on the formal side, go with dress 2. Your body looks sick in both, so I can tell why you’re having trouble deciding!

@BlondeBee: Thank you! I should have included the feel of the wedding with the post, actually. It’s evening (ceremony starting at 5PM) and the venue is kind of a brick loft with big windows and an industrial feel. The ceremony and the reception will be indoors. We’re doing sort of a watercolor theme with purples/black/silver and my fiance is artsy, so he’s doing most of it all himself, with painting the placecards, table numbers, etc. I think we’re going for modern and elegant, if that helps at all!

@BisBeanBrien: it does! To be honest, if you’re going for modern and elegant with kind of an architectural feel (coming from the brick loft) I’d go with the VW. It’s cool, sculptural, yet still soft… the bottom reminds me of watercolor strokes!
