- Wedding: September 2010 - Casa Real at Ruby Hill Winery
Ok girls…I’m in a pickle. I bought Dress #1 less than a month after we got engaged. It was a good price, I liked it a lot and my mom and aunt cried so I got it. Soon afterwards, I started doubting my choice. I basically fell out of love with the dress. Then I saw the Amsale Tyler (Dress #2) back in Septemeber, and ever since then can’t get it out of my head. Finally was able to take some pics of me in it and now I ask you girls – which dress do you like more? Should I sell my old dress and buy the Amsale?

Wow. Tough choice!! They both look great on you! But they are very different dresses. Which one is more “you”? (My gut reaction is that I like the second one better…but maybe it’s because you look happier in it.) 🙂

I prefer the first one on you, but I agree with august15bride that you look happeir in the second. You’re only gonna do this once, so I think you should go with the dress that really makes you happy.

I am having a hard decision myself so I feel your pain, but I actuallky just tried the Angelique dress on yesterday and I can tell you that it is gorgeous! They both look great on you, but I agree I think you look happier in the Amsale one. The first one does seem a little more “bridal” in my opinion. Good luck!

Since I like “bling”, I love the first one, although they are both beautiful! The first one looks good for a more formal wedding, while the second one I think would be perfect for an outdoor wedding. But I don’t think you can go wrong with either one!

I love, love, love the first one! I think it has a somewhat “classic” and timeless look about it. I’d stick with it. I’ve had dress doubts too (I bought my dress really early in our engagement) but I know it will be the right one in the end!

I agree with the rest, both look good on you, and both are very pretty dresses but totally different styles. What look are you going for? The first dress is a bit more formal and traditional. But you also look much more relaxed and comfortable in the second dress. Think about what want to look like on your day, hope the decision making gets easier.

I think you look fantastic in the dress you’ve already purchased. I had the same problem since I bought mine recently, hard not to want to look at others since I still have over 9 months to go! Go with what feels right, your FI will think you look stunning no matter what. The first one shows what a tiny waist you have!

That is a hard decision! Just my own personal style, I love the Amsale. Also, the fact that you “fell out of love” with the other dress, and you can’t stop thinking about the Amsale, makes me think that you should switch. You need to wear the dress that makes you happy and you love! They are both beautiful, so either way, you will look amazing! 🙂 good luck!!!!

I love dress #2 hands down!

i didn’t read the story, i went straight for the pix and voted and chose dress 2, it’s stunning on you, with that said the first dress is pretty as well so i’m not sure.. do you think you could sell the first one? i would perhaps try to sell it and then purchase the second versus purchasing the second one first.

!!!! You look stunning and have that bridal glow in it (although you look gorgeous in both!)

firstly, you look beautiful in both so its just a fashion choice for me. i really like the style of #1 dress but you see this on many brides so i voted for dress #2 because when i first saw it i literally held my breath and thought “oh how romantic” and you look so soft and glowing
which dress will suit the style of your wedding most?

The dress you bought is beautiful and looks fantastic on you. Sorry but the Amsale is just meh to me. If you take the designer name out of it, to me it’s just an ordinary white dress with a belt. Also, I think the first dress makes your waist look thinner. But of course like everyone else said it’s you who must love the dress.
I’ve been dealing with dress doubts since I ordered mine so I understand. I have a fantastic dress that I think is prettier than anything out there but I just can’t love it on me and I worry that I’ll never shake that feeling off. But when everyone else looks at my pics and tells me I made the right choice, it makes me think maybe they know what they’re talking about and that I’m being crazy :). I’d suggest stepping back and taking an objective look at both dresses like you’re looking at it on another girl. You may decide you still love your original dress more . Maybe you thought of the Amsale dress for so long it affected your feelings for the first dress but in reality that’s still the dress for you?

What a tough decision! They are both so beautiful on you. If you are looking for a classic look, go with the first one. If you are going for a more soft, romantic look, the second one is for you. Personally, I prefer the second. Here’s why: the first dress is a very typical-every-bride dress. The second one, is more memorable (in my opinion) from the spectator’s perspective. Either way you’ll be a beautiful bride though!
