I purchased a gorgeous Vera Wang dress from David’s Bridal about 4 months ago (VW351020). Originally, I paired it with a black sash but they had me try it on with a straight slip (no poof). Looking at the pictures from this day, I was a bit unhappy with how the dress gathered or “folded” @ the bottom when I moved or changed position.
I went back to David’s Bridal and tried on my dress with their fit and flare slip, which does make a difference (the layers look a little crazy b/c of how it was stored in the bag, not due to the slip…they will calm down once steamed.). I also opted to swap out the black sash for the white one. I still love the dress.
HOWEVER, I decided to try on two VW dresses in blush and was pleasantly surprised by the VW351112. I am now feeling so conflicted! (wedding colors are blush/black/white…originally planning for bridesmaids in blush)
(pics deleted…thank you everyone! 🙂 )

The problem isn’t the slip or the dress… it’s too long! Once you get it pinned up at your alterations appointment, you’ll love it all over again because that problem will be completely gone! It’s beautiful on you!! Keep the one you orginally loved.

I like your first one with the fit and flare slip, but how do you feel? Are you able to exchange the dresses if you decide on the second one?

I agree with PP. The dress you already picked looks great on you it just needs to be hemmed. I would stick with it and the black sash. Just get it hemmed and you’ll be all set.

I say stick with the first choice but with the black sash. I feel like the white sash blends in too much.

You could do the blush dress and white bridesmaids dresses.. That’s a fun twist 🙂

I’m going to stick with my original dress…I think that I just had a moment of panic on an otherwise stressful day and was doubting my choice. I still love everything about it but needed to reassure myself of that original “wow” feeling.
