I love the jewel one.  I tried on that Melissa Sweet dress and ugh, I didn’t like the way it hung at all.  IMO, the MS looks kind of cheap for what it is.

You made the right choice!  I love the Jewl so much more and cannot imagine that the MS dress was over 4k, it doesn’t look like it…. but… the jewl looks like it should be the one over 4… def. made the right choice… the jewl looks so great on you!

Wow…I actually like the Jewel dress more.  They are both gorgeous but I think you look better in the Jewel.

You should go with the one that makes you the happiest, but I definitely like the Jewel one alot better!

I really love the jewel dress. I think it looks really unique, so others may not really know how to respond to it. Having worked for a year planning my own wedding, I’m accustomed to seeing all kinds of different dress styles, but non-brides, aren’t. 

Do remember that half of loving the way you look in your dress is being confident! Be bold, girlfriend!

I much prefer the Jewel as well!  I think you should trust your gut on this!  People are only seeing a piece of the picture and they will see it differently once its properly tailored to you.  I think you made the right choice!

I think you look great in both; you really can’t go wrong.  They are different in style, and maybe that’s why people are reacting the way they did to the Jewel.  Maybe they didn’t expect you to choose a style like the Jewel dress…the Melissa Sweet is definitely more “traditional”.

I’d like the jewel better on you, even if it was the same price…but at that savings…heck ya!

I actually like the Jewel one much better! It’s beautiful and very unique. I wouldn’t stress too much on others reactions. When you walk down the aisle everyone will be wowed!

I like the Jewel much better than the Melissa dress.  Jewel is more unique and I agree with pp that it might look “off” to you because of the top part, which isn’t alters. Once it’s altered to fit your body, it’ll look even more gorgeous! I love the side view of Jewel.  Pesonally, I think the Melissa dress was a little too plain and expected, compared to the Jewel dress.  I’d have picked Jewel, too.  I think you made the right purchase!

The Jewel is very unique!  That’s probably why you don’t get the typical reaction.  I think it is very hip and classy and if it’s you, then go for it!  I love it.  The Melissa is more traditional and probably what people “expect” you to wear.  Be different – the Jewel is awesome 🙂

you shouldn’t worry about what other people think about your dress, it’s your dress! everyone has different tastes, and that’s a good thing, other wise we’d all have the same dress and that would just be sad and boring.

I like the Jewel a lot. It looks to me like a Renaissance princess could have worn it with that lovely waist detailing. I’m not really feeling the Melissa, either, so I think you made a great choice.
