I purchased my dress at a trunk show, and was under pressure because I felt that I had to make a decision to make sure I could get the dress I wanted (Snow White by Alfred Angelo) in time for my wedding, since no one knew when they would actually be available in stores. It is a very pretty and princessy dress, and my parents purchased it for me (they wanted to buy my dress).
Well, ever since I started looking to the knot and weddingbee for ideas, I keep seeing the ever-popular mermaid/fit and flare dresses. And I fell in love with the Adorae, and started kicking myself for not trying on any dresses that weren’t ballgowns. At the time I thought I wanted a ballgown and that I wouldn’t look good in the other styles. But the more I see and the more I think about it, I keep wishing for something a bit more grown up than my current dress. I get mistaken for a high-schooler a lot, so the princess dress isn’t doing me any favors. I want to feel like a woman getting married, and I want my fiance to be wowed!
So I went and tried on the Adorae. Hoped it would look like crap and make me love my old dress. Well, I fell in love with the Adorae. I’ve decided to try to sell the Snow White and buy the Adorae. Luckily my parents are being super cool about it and said they’re not paying any more money but if I choose to that’s fine and they just want me to feel beautiful and happy on my wedding day. But I could really use some opinions here, so basically disregard everything I jsut said and base your answer for the poll strictly on which dress you think looks better on me.
Do you girls think I’m doing the right thing?

@Wonderstruck: Every bride deserves to feel her most beautiful on her wedding day. If you love Adorae, go for it!! Do what makes you happy! I’m sure you won’t have a problem selling your other dress. List it on a few sites and see what kind of bites you get.
PS- I should let you know, I am totally bias since my dress is the Aodrae as well. :o)

Gosh, I don’t know…I’m looking at your face and your posture, and trying really hard to ignore what it’s telling me about how you feel in the two dresses, since you just finished telling us that you fell in love with Adorae. I think Snow White looks just lovely on you (possibly more lovely…but i wonder if i’m swayed by the photos), but if you’re not feelin it, then Adorae is certainly what you should go with.
Did you see the thread of the girl who has dress regret about the Adorae? You two are a match made in heaven! 🙂

@pengoala: Haha try to ignore the face and posture, I didn’t realize it was taking the picture in the Adorae and my phone started to ring so the face and posture kinda broke for a second there cuz I wasn’t paying attention.

The Snow White is more flattering on you, truthfully. I think it’s beautiful.

@Wonderstruck: Gosh, I don’t know, I keep coming back to thread to look at the Snow White on you. I know you’re not feeling it, but it’s just so beautiful on you that it’s hard to let you give up on her!

Hmm I think I should probably go sleep on this one…
sorry about the edits, didn’t actually mean to leave my face in the pictures, just forgot until someone commented on it. But I definitely need opinions so please keep them coming!

I LOOOOOVE THE SNOW WHITE! It’s sooo pretty on you! Adorae is pretty too but the Snow White is just WOW! I love it!

Personally I like the snow white better and I think it’s more flattering, and the details are really special. But it’s only what you like that matters 🙂 I’m sure you can find someone to buy your dress

Yes yes, why don’t you sleep on this one? In the meantime, put up a poll and let WB do its deal. In the morning you’ll have what everyone thinks in stat form! 🙂

I am torn because they are such different looks, but I am going to agree with some of the other and say sleep on it. You look beautiful in both dresses. ( I am kind of leaning towards the Adorae)
