Thank you so much everyone for your responses I really appreciate it, keep them coming 🙂 I have made an appointment to get the first dress altered just incase the second one does not come in it will be interesting to see how I feel in itas I have not tried it on in 6 months.
@clairelou29. No dress 1 is perfect in the length and fit it just needs a bustle and some cups sewn in.
@jen041815. I havent asked the shop about getting a refund if it does not come in on time I was just streaming out but that is a good point I will definatly make sure they do refund in that instance.
@ MrsBee2B. thank you, yes I also prefer the fabric on dress 1 as well as from a little girl I always had in my head that that was wedding dress material :). I will definatly get dress 1 altered and dress 2 also if it comes in at least then I have opinions and yes I may well decide on the day knowing me!
@Charliejeorge. I dont think the shop would refund unless it did not arrive in time. Dress 1 is the only dress I have really gone wow to at seeing myself in and I definatly prefer the fabric on dress 1 but cant get out of my head that close friends said it was too puffy and had too much bling on, I know I should care as they dont have to wear it and Fiance saw a bride reading it on ‘Dont Tell the Bride’and said he liked it, he doesnt know I have it though and obviously it looks different on everyone.

@balletbride: They’re not that much different really. I’ve always liked your original dress. Both look good on you though and show off your figure.
Edit: I voted 2 as I feel it shows your figure off more and comparing the two the skirt of the first one does swamp you a bit now looking at 2.

@balletbride: I’m going to be completely honest – I think they’re both gorgeous and they both look great on you. I think for your own peace of mind you should try to adopt this attitude: “Whichever dress I wear is going to be perfect” – then it won’t matter if the replacement second dress comes in time. Wear whichever dress is available, or even flip a coin if both of them are still available, and KNOW that you look spectacular.

I totally agree with what people have said – they’re both beautiful, and they have very similar shapes. I think the second dress is a little bit more flattering, so wear that one if it is ready. If it isn’t just know that you look amazing regardless 🙂 maybe do the most important alterations on the first one, in case you need to wear it.
