@nikix:  I think that’s a size 0 or 2 in the US. Your dress style seems popular but your dress size is on the smaller side. How tall are you in the dress with heels? Height is also a limiting factor.

As for the other dress you posted, try White by Vera Wang VW351135 at David’s Bridal. It’s a more affordable version ($1500) of the main line Vera.

You can try to sell it on oncewed.com or some website like that.

The dress you got is gorgeous, but I can see why you love the other one, too.  You may be able to sell it, but make sure it will not hurt you financially if you don’t make back what you paid for it, or if you can’t sell it.  Usually, for the right price, someone will buy it.  You can put an ad on here, other wedding sites, or eBay.  I don’t think it’s uncommon to want a different dress, especially if you went shopping with a few people.  We get caught up in the moment and may pick something we don’t love because everyone else loves it.  I got my original dress at David’s Bridal, and luckily they let me exchange it for a different dress because I really didn’t love the first one I bought.  Just weigh your options- you definitely don’t want to be unhappy in your wedding dress, but you also don’t want to be broke if you can’t sell it.

I would suggest getting your new dress before trying to sell your old dress – and because of that, making sure that you are able to afford the new dress even if you can’t sell your old dress or can only sell it for a fraction of what you paid.

Your wedding is getting kind of close to be without a dress, so I would not sell until I was sure I had the new dress IN HAND (not just ordered – things go wrong with orders) and a seamstress that could alter it in time.

@nikix:  Yes, definitely, you can add a black sash and hoop skirt to your dress! It is gorgeous and I’d hate for you to give it up! :)

Let’s see a photo of you in your dress. Also your getting married in 3 months? That’s cutting it short for time.

Not sure, but you might not have time to order another dress…or, might have to pay to put a rush on it?  The only way to know is call some dress shops, explain your situation, and see what advice they can give you…I’m sure they see this situation often.  I like your original gown!  Very pretty…sometimes the grass isn’t always greener…

Maybe you could find another gown/dress for your reception and get to wear both, unless cost is an immediate factor…and then sell BOTH gowns online after your wedding???
