I actually think both are stunning on you and your figure! In my mind, they are both somewhat revealing in different ways. With that said, if you absolutely love the second dress and think you may regret wearing the other, and you can afford to purchase an entirely new dress, then I say go for it! My other suggestion would be to have your first dress altered to resemble the second dress in certain ways (ie: change the waistline, tighten the fabric near your bum, add/extend the train etc). Good luck bee!

I actually think they look really similar in terms of overall shape and pattern of the lace. Are the pictures of the first, original dress the one in your size, or are is that the one you tried on in Canada (with clips hidden somewhere)? I really think the first dress looks great on you, and I am not a huge fan of the slit in the second dress. But both are stunning! I just think they are too similar to justify spending a lot of money on a whole new dress, but perhaps others more fashion savvy will think otherwise 😉 How much is the new dress and how much was the old one? Can you afford both?

I honestly think your first dress is so much more beauiful and flattering than the potential new one. I would keep the dress you have. It’s stunning!

I prefer the first dress over the second tbh. At the end of the day this is your wedding and if you can afford it, go for it.

I honestly love the first dress, and think it is worlds better than the second dress. The first dress is just amazing, and fits your body perfectly!

It looks to me like the first dress could be taken in at the waist and the bust a little bit more, but other than that, I think it’s stunning!! I LOVE that pattern and I LOVE the fit, and I think it really looks gorgeous on you.

The first dress is way more gorgeous than the second. I also think it more flattering! Keep it!
