    going to be totally honest- i didn’t read your story (sorry!), but dress 2 (the one on the right) looks totally awesome on you. dress 1 just has way way too much going on.

    make sure you are happy.. if #1 does it.. then id try for #1… take if from me.. buying something cuz its cheaper ISNT gonna make you feel like a bride the day of!

    Get the dress that reflects your personality and makes you feel like YOU! I knew my dress was my dress because I randomly started dancing around in it. Not that I haven’t had dress regret pretty constantly. . . Go back to the store like you mentioned and that’ll give you a better idea of if you really want to change dresses. For what it’s worth, the one you’re getting looks great on you.

    I honestly like them both!  I say go with dress one, it’s the one YOU seem to be drawn to, so I say, follow your gut.  GL!

    I think you rock dress #2, but if YOU don’t feel like yourself in it, that’s all that matters. I don’t like dress #1 as much just from a style standpoint, but if it has the fun vibe you’re going for, maybe you should consider it.

    PLEASE try not to feel down about your weight, you look fantastic!

    The waist line and ruffles of dress one just isnt as flattering on you as the other dress.

    Are these dresses that will be available to order in the next 4-6 months?  How long would they take to come in?  If you truly are planning to lose 50lbs, I would really recommend getting started on that first.  See how much progress you make in the next 2-3 months, and then try the dresses on again.  In 2-3 months, you could be down by as much as 30lbs.  I shed 40lbs in between my first marriage and this go-round, and believe me, it was a totally different experience trying on dresses.  Things that didn’t flatter me before did.  Styles I would have dared to try before looked great.  You’ve got time, and you don’t sound 100% sure of either one.  So I vote for waiting for the moment.  

    FYI, I think you look great in both dresses at your current weight!

    I love 2 on you. . . but you need to go with the one you feel best in.

    It doesn’t matter what anyone else thinks.

    #2 looks nice, but I would keep looking.  DB has new dresses all the time.  I think you need to find one that is bright white one that you just don’t want to take off.

    I have nothing against David’s Bridal at all, I had a great experience there, but I found the smaller, independent shops to be a pleasant surprise. I stayed away from them initially because I thought they would ONLY have things out of my price range. But I discovered that not to be true, AND I discovered a whole new selection of dresses that weren’t like the ones at David’s. I ended up with an amazing deal on a super unique dress that really suits my personality.

    So, I say, if you’ve got the time, do some more shopping around. If you strike out, and end up back at David’s, spend the extra money and get the dress that you love!
