So here is my dilemma.
Last year around this time – i was shopping with my fiance’s (boyfriend at the time) cousin, and she had this crazy idea to go try on wedding gowns for fun. She picked one, i picked one – and we went back to the dressing rooms. I put the dress on, looked in the mirror, and wanted to CRY. I LOVED it! It fit me so well, and I thought it would be “THE ONE” if and when that day would come. They wouldn’t let us take pictures, but I snuck one in the dressing room. I was smiling from ear to ear, and didn’t want to take it off.
A year later, we are happily engaged! As soon as he popped the question, I knew I wanted to try on this dress again. It was the first store I went to – but they said they wouldn’t have this dress in stock until late January. I was sad, but happy to try on other dresses and see what I like and what I don’t. I tried on a bunch of dresses at different stores, and didn’t like anything. I kept thinking about this dress in the back of my mind.
But then…I found a dress that WOW’d me! It was something different, elegant, and beautiful. Something I probably would never try on but my consultant thought I would look good in, so I tried it on, and LOVED it. This is my dress – purchased in November.
I fell in love with this dress – and decided I probably just loved the other dress because it was the first wedding gown I have ever tried on. Everything was going good, until I recieved a call that the other dress was in and could come try it on. I wasn’t going to – because I told myself I don’t need any stress or “what if’s” about 2 wedding gowns. But, I couldn’t resist and went and tried it back on.
This is THE OTHER DRESS:
I fell in love with it ALL over again! It is everything I want in a dress. So now I am torn between 2 dresses, and don’t know what to do. Has anyone had this problem before? Should I stick with my original purchase, or buy a 2nd dress – which was the one I fell in love with in the beginning?

The dress you originally loved is a lot sexier than the other one.

I MAY have a solution for you which is what I’m doing with my dress.. Get the top cut into a sweetheart and the sides taken in at the thigh.. then you have almost the same dress that you originally loved. You look beautiful in both though!

Oh wow, that original dress is amazing! I can see why you fell head over heels for it.

you look great in both dresses – my preference is the dress you have already purchased as im not a fan of the the skirt/pickups on dress #2

Aw they both look so pretty! I love them 🙂 And they are definitely different (though there are some similarities). I think the fabrics must be different since one is more flowy than the other one. Honestly, I like the second one as well! But I don’t think I could go and buy another dress… definitely can’t afford that. If you can, and that’s the dress you want, go for it! But I think you’ll be happy with either choice. Plus, you’ll only wear it once right?

I think the one you purchased looks better 🙂

They are both pretty, but the original is prettier.
I did the same thing: bought another dress after finding the perfect one. It was a stupid call, and I ended up losing fifty bucks because I had to resell it on Oncewed to some lucky girl who got a better deal than I did. 🙂

I like the first one more. The second one looks sort of like the dress I wore to prom in ’06. (Not even joking–pick-ups were huge that year.)

I like your original dress better. They both look great on you, but there’s a fondant-like look to the skirt of the second dress I’m not crazy about.

I like the first one a lot better….I’m not a fan of pick-ups. I would stick with the one you purchased, it’s so romantic and pretty. Good luck making your decision!

I like the first one better, You can always have both and have one as a ceremony dress and one as a reception dress 🙂
