I know, I know, I should’ve stopped looking at dresses after i bought one. But I just couldn’t help it. This morning, I was browsing around previouslyownedweddingdresses.com and found the first dress I fell in love with for a much more reasonable price. (It retails for $2300 but I’ve found three used dresses today from $850 to $1,000).
I bought the Casablanca 1900 but now I’m wondering if I should sell it when it arrives in January and buy a used Paloma Blanca 3704.

I don’t know which of those is which.. but the last two are beautiful! I would suggest going with whichever you think you love more though..

Which is which? (lace and pickups)

I normally am not a fan of pickups but I think the second dress really flatters you!

The pick-ups one is the Paloma Blanca and the Casablanca is the lace one. My co-workers were all in favor of the Paloma blanca one today at lunch. (Apparently, I’m not girly enough for lace.)

I’m not very well versed in style numbers, so I’m not sure which picture is which dress, but I will say this – they are both beautiful dresses, but I think the dress in pics 3 and 4 elongates you and makes you look a little taller. I guess it also depends on the type of wedding you’re having…I think the lace one would be very pretty for a outdoor/garden-type setting, while the other one is a bit more formal.
Also, I don’t know if this helps you at all, but here’s my experience as a 2 dress bride. I bought a dress I liked, freaked out at the 2nd fitting, started looking again, found another dress that was a great deal and bought it. After fully altering that dress as well, I realized I was rather hasty in buying that 2nd dress, that I really do like my first choice, and now I’m going to have to try and sell the 2nd one. And I’ve heard that selling a wedding dress isn’t necessarily as easy as it sounds. You may just be having those normal wedding dress doubts – almost everyone does. And yeah, it might be a good idea to stop looking : )
I know this didn’t really give you an answer, but hopefully it will help in some way!

I honestly think you look awesome in both. I saw the lace and thought how beautiful you were and then the second one looked amazing on you too. they are so different though – which one is the vibe that you want to feel like a bride?

I like the Paloma Blanca better!

I don’t have a particular vibe I’m going for. The wedding is on an outdoor patio and it’s an evening wedding in June. I think both dresses would work, but I truly loved the Paloma Blanca with its lightweight dupioni silk but the price made me balk. Then I read a lot about petite brides (I’m 5’1″ looking best in empire waist dresses) and there’s such a backlash against pickups that I thought the lace looked more classy and wouldn’t date me in photos in the years to come.

I wouldn’t worry about what your friends think. Everyone has such different taste and you are wearing the dress, not them. This is why I don’t want to show many people the dress I choose – it leaves too much room for doubting!!
Both dresses are lovely and with the right fit, will look great on you.
I agree that selling a dress may not be very easy. Especially a lower-price-point dress.

Both are lovely but I think you look awesome in the lace one. Why not maske a poll for this?

the 1900 is my fav dress!

I LOVE the Casablanca and I’m personally not a fan of pick-ups. You look beautiful in both though!
Also consider the type of wedding you’re having. The Casablanca (to me) would suit a garden-themed, slightly more casual wedding whereas the Paloma would be for a more black-tie, formal affair.

God, you look amazing in the Paloma Blanca. So elegant, regal, tall, feminine, powerful. I’m blown away, honestly. And I hate to tell you that because I know it’s not the dress you have. It’s just awesome how good you look in the Paloma Blanca!
