    Be practical and keep the dress I already bought

    Buy the one I love

    I have a different idea (explained below)

    Wowee.  I’m usually a practical person, but I gotta say that the second dress is amazing!  The dress you bought is very very pretty too–don’t get me wrong!  You would not be making a mistake by sticking with it.  But the second dress really has that WOW factor that I just love.

    Is the second dress an Allure or Maggie Sottero?  I’m seriously in love with it!

    I love the second dress on you! I am sure you could get some of your money back out of the first dress, but Even if you dont end up selling the first dress, I am pretty confident you can sell the second dress after your wedding because alot of brides want that style!!  If you can afford it, i say go for it!! OR try to find a dress in that style of the second dress fora  cheaper pricetag…have you tried mori lee?

    You look great both dresses! I think you should get the one you love if it’s in your budget. Selling the other one may take a while, but if you don’t need the cash right away, then I wouldn’t worry about it, even if you have to sell it at a small loss.. feeling beautiful in your dress is worth it. You can also sell your new dress used after your wedding.

    I  loved your first dress the second I saw it. It is sweet, soft, romantic, and without your head in the picture I somehow assumed you were an older bride. (Not meant to be upsetting or insulting as I was an older bride this summer at 45!) But then I saw dress #2 and it really shows off your figure and even with the face blocked out, I can see now that you are not an older bride at all! #2 is perfect on you and you won’t regret it!

    PS- I bought a nice dress at a great price and knew it would photograph well. I knew it wasn’t necessarily “the one” which is why I bought another one 2 weeks before the wedding. I wore the original for the ceremony (white, train, trumpet) and after dinner changed into the strapless fitted, ivory one I knew I always wanted. My husband was blown away by the second one!

    oh! and just to let you know, i know for a fact, if you do decide you like one of those dresses of the links i posted above or any of the wedding dress on their site…the bridal salon in my town (which is the link i posted to) is where i bought my dress, and they can give you 20percent off the price on the website and have it shipped to you for about 50 dollars. i told another bee that and she actually ordered one of her dresses thru them and it worked out so good for her bc the dress was way more expensive in her town. 🙂

    I think that by the time you get the first one altered to where it is fitting you like a glove, you’ll love it way more than you think.  And, no matter what, you’re going to feel like a million bucks on your wedding day.
