First off, have you tried on the other dress? I can almost guarantee the dress you “thought you loved” looks better on you than one you’ve never seen on.

Secondly, can we see the dresses? I think it will help in giving advice.

There is always another beautiful dress, I have found several, but I loved my dress and it was in my budget. Were the designer options a bit prettier? yeah, but not enough to be worth the extra money. What you can do, if you cant get that dress out of your head, is look for it cheap, used, CSB, or a replica and have a reception and a wedding dress. Or you could resell your original one.

But there are a million gorgeous dresses out there, and Im sure your original dress is stunning.

Just get a China replica of dress #2. Or, sell dress #1.

 

In the long run, the price of getting another dress is a drop in the bucket. Maybe to even it out, cut back a little in other parts of your wedding so it evens out.

 

It’ll be ok!

I have yet to choose a dress- I’ve tried on probably over 100, been to every store within an hour drive, and I’ve found plenty of beautiful dresses that I could see myself wearing down the aisle. I haven’t made a choice yet because I like them all- but I can only have one.

If you still like the dress you have now, I personally would say stick with it. There will ALWAYS be pretty dresses, but the grass is always greener on the other side. Especially since you haven’t tried on the other dress, you might be seriously disappointed.

The choice is yours though, and if you truly feel like you won’t be happy with your current dress and you can fit it in your budget, then you could try to find it for sale used.

Gurl,  you weren’t suppose to go there.LOL

Here’s what I found on PreOwned if you just have to have it:

http://www.preownedweddingdresses.com/dresses/by-designer/Sottero-Midgley-wedding-dresses.html?data%255BQualifiers%255D%255BDress%255D%255BLimit%255D=50

Since you have time, you can stalk the web and find it.  I purchased my dress 4 months prior to my wedding because I knew I wanted a sample or pre-owned.  Through some serious stalking I was able to find my Gurl, Badgley Mischka sample, for less than $700.  Give yourself a last drop date to find the dress and then sell yours. 

Since you already have a dress made by the same designer, the fit shouldn’t be that much different.  You just need to decide if that’s the dress for you.

Also STOP LOOKING @ DRESSES!!!LOL  Find something else to Obsess about.  Seriously.  there are way 2 many options

Good Luck!!!

Honestly I can’t see buying a second dress when they’re similar in style.  I could maybe see it if you felt you got bullied into buying one dress and it was a completely different style then you had wanted, but to me these dresses look very much alike. I really like the bodice on the first dress and just the look of it overall, but that’s just my opinion.
