I would *try* moving on. I too love a deal- and ended up buying a really cute Nordstrom dress for $100, but honestly wasn’t in love. I gave it a month or two to see if I’d warm up but ended up going dress shopping ony to fall in love with a Sottero & Midgely. C’est le vie. I really hope the $400 dress works out- because that is an amazing price tag :o)Good luck!

i don’t think that you should bother trying on the other dress, i am sure your dress is stunning!! it usually takes a while to get the dresses in so i think that you bought ti in the right amount of time.

i would stick with the dress you bought. If you loved it when you bought/ordered it and everyone says it looked amazing on you, then I’d keep it. However, if you are still worrying over this issue in 2-3 months, go ahead and try the other one on. Hopefully it’ll just confirm that the one you bought was it! 🙂

I think you should give the sale dress a bit more time. It is normal to feel a little uncertain after such a major purchase. Maybe you will be more sure in a couple weeks, if not you could still try the other one on just to see.

I fell in love with the 2nd dress I tried on…  I had no intention of buying a dress at that point in time – it was a holiday weekend right after my engagment.  My mom & godmother thought it would be fun to just take a look.  I hated this dress on the hanger, but caved to peer pressure and tried it.  I thought it was great.  But, even after that, I went and tried on a gazillion other dresses #1 because I wanted to be totally completely sure, and #2 because I found it fun.  🙂  I kept coming back to the same dress though.  Seriously – I felt a little crazy that a $500 alfred angelo was calling me louder than all the vera and oscars that I tried on!  but…when it’s right, it’s right.  Sometimes you just need to test drive a few others to see just how right it is.  🙂  Bottom line – if you will think back and regret not trying the Jules dress, go for it. 

Good luck!  (They are both stunning, btw).

I’m October 2010 and I already have my dress. I got mine at a huge sale as well, so it’s hanging in my bedroom staring at me every day lol. I had lots of doubts about mine at first too, but I’m fine with my decision now. But, honestly, when I bought mine I was already at the point where I was finsihed looking. I was tired of bridal shops and wedding dresses and that sale was my last-ditch effort to get a dress or else I had another MUCH more expensive one picked out at home.

I say stick to it.

good luck!  Just remeber if you do love it, and you are going to have it made, it might not look exactly the same…
