Hey Bees, I’m looking for some opinions! I fell in love with a dress that is way more than I would care to spend. I found a much cheaper alternative (three times less), but I’m unsure how similar they are. The first one has a much richer fabric, fuller pleats in the skirt and is the same subtle tone on tone brocade pattern on the whole dress. It also has a coordinating beaded belt that ups the pizazz factor. The second one has beaded lace appliques on the entire dress that get darker in color towards the bottom for an ombre effect. No belt (but surely one could be added for much less than paying three times more for the first dress)

They look very similar. I would be happt to go with the alternative and add a sash! For the price, you could add all of those small details like fuller pleats etc.

I honestly thought they were the same dress and was looking for the picture of the second dress!! LOL I only see the difference after I really looked! Good find!

They are very similar, but I think what will actually make or break this deal is what you think of it IN PERSON. Have you tried on either dress yet?

@megan331979: I thought the same too!
Now that I’m looking closer at the pictures I do see why you like the original more due to those little details. I say try in person and see how you feel!

I don’t know if this is helpful, but I’ve seen that first dress on Preownedweddingdresses.com. The name of it is Regan?

Yup, thought they were the same also! I think the second one with an added belt is a great choice.
