Soooo. I already own Demetrios CR 186 (from thier couture collection)
But I just couldn’t help myself and had to try on a dress from the New Vera Wang White collection at David’s Bridal. So different from what I have and very pretty. I wish I had a picture of myself in the Demetrious so you could see. Maybe I should be a two dress bride?
I think I just love trying on dresses, especially since I bought mine alone after the first experience of my mother coming with me and telling me I looked fat in everything. Maybe I just need a confidence boost or to try on dresses with someone else. My mom was so mean when I went to the bridal shop with her.
What do you think I should do?

I really prefer the first dress. I think it would better show off that amazing figure and give you that wow factor. I think the Vera would be wearing you and not the other way around like the first dress.

I am sure the other dress looks amazing on you! Do you have a picture in it? I had a very similar experience. I seriously doubted my first dress and bought a second dress. Well the first dress came in and I tried it on and I realized it is the dress for me. Either way you need to be happy and feel confident and beautiful. Follow your heart.
By The Way I find it hard to believe you looked fat in anything your gorgeous and any dress you pick will be a compliment to you!

From your DB White picture, you don’t look fat at all, and can only imagine that you look just as good in the Demetrios. Personally, I really like the Demetrios dress b/c it’s more classic and timeless. The DB White dress is too trendy to me.

I agree with tks. I don’t like the Vera Wang. I saw someone try it on in person at David’s Bridal, and didn’t like it on her either. It’s just too much on most people I think.

The VW is okay but the first one looks more special to me.

Keep the Demetrios! There are already quite a few bees with that Vera Wang dress.

I like the Demetrios dress much, much more than the Vera Wang.
I’m sorry to hear that your mom was so mean. You don’t look like you could ever be thought of as fat in any sense of the word to me! Please don’t take your mom’s comments to heart – I don’t know what her issue is, but it’s certainly her problem, not yours. You look lovely!

You are not fat! You look beautiful in the second dress, I’m sure you look beautiful in the first also.
Based on the pictures, keep the first dress. I think it looks more special/ unique than the second. It’s classic and when you look back at your pictures in 20 years, it will still look classic and elegant.

thank you everyone for being so nice. I really liked my first dress, but like I said my mom was so mean I felt like I needed to go out and try more dresses on to feel sure that my dress was “the one” for me. So maybe I’ll try on more, but I think in the end I’ll come back to the Demetrious. I’ll try to get you a photo of myself in that dress soon.

What is your wedding theme? When I see the first dress I think that the wedding and reception will have simple elegance. Maybe even Vintage. A really soft overall feel.
When I see the second dress I am thinking…Grand ballroom, elaborate centerpieces, bold and bright colors. Large affair.
What is your personality?
You would look beautiful in both dresses they really compliment your figure. If your mom called you fat she must have an eating disorder! lol Why do moms do that?
This should be fun! If you are not having fun…keep trying till you find the dress that makes everything worth it.

You have a stunning figure! Mom’s can be harsh sometimes…I vote for the first one, the second one looks like you are wrapped in toilet paper…sorry, just my opinion
