Which one felt like THE ONE when you put it on?  Honestly…i know you are SUPPOSED to get a dress that suits your venue…but I dont really agree w/ that, to an extent…my dress is a little more formal that what some may say I shoud get to go w/ my venue (cabin on the lake, evening wedding), but I say who cares if your dress doesnt FIT your setting? You are the bride, and it is your day, so go with what you want 🙂

Honestly I like the second dress best. It’s soft and I love how flowey it looks. Perfect for a garden wedding.

@CRL110282:  I second this!

 

My venue? A rustic, stone built, large beam museum. We are getting married outside. My dress? A draped silk-satin A-line gown with a drop waist and corset back. Totally does not suit it at all, but I love it.

 

As other bee’s have said, my theme is “Things takemyhand loves”, more so than rustic/outdoorsy.

I think the second one is truly stunning, and will be the best choice in terms of when you look back on your wedding day. It isn’t “trendy” so the classic style is something you’d be proud to hang pictures of you and hubby around the house for years and years, you won’t have lingering guilt about your mom, so you’ll breathe easier day-of, and it fits your theme really well so you can keep that whimsical princessy living-my-fantasy feeling all day long 🙂

The SECOND dress is without a question way more beautiful than the first. I can’t say I like one thing about the first dress. Seriously, that first dress is not worth 3000!!! But, thats just my opinion.

If you are having regrets, explore your options. Would you be able to afford the first dress? I know you said you couldn’t bring yourself to allow your mom to spend 3000 on a dress… Which I think is pretty great of you!

Your dress looks so beautiful, flowy, dreamy, light. Think of it in pictures on a beach, all the tulle flowing in the wind.. Ahhh GORGEOUS!

I had the same issue when looking for dresses. I fell in love with a dress I just couldn’t have and I planned on settling for other dresses I thought were stunning and breathtaking that I wasn’t in love with through. After months and months of looking I just wanted it to be done with it all but instead of buying the beautiful dresses I saw I took a break from looking cleared my head and went back to the search. Soon I found new dresses that gave me the same feelings the original one gave me. I still love the the first one but I love the new ones just the same if not more. If you aren’t in love let it go and keep looking. you’ll find something else you’ll really love.

 

 

funny sidenote: my fiance just looked over my shoulder, read a bit, then asked if I was talking about  him 😀

Also I love the first dress! It looks chic and light. I wanted a 3000 dollar dress and didn’t want to ask my parents to pay for it (because they are paying for my whole wedding) so I asked my fiance if we could purchase it. I just told my mom that he very much wanted to give me a gift for our wedding and what better gift could he give me than my dress.

ok last thing. i brought two dresses I changed my mind about and sold them online for the exact same price i brought them for and they sold in two weeks. If the dress is priced at 3000+ and you got it for 1000 and it’s in perfect condition you could easily sell it

I have to agree with all the other bees who commented on the second dress.  I was in the same dilemma two days ago – regret. But now I love my dress.  You just need to go with what you love b/c it’s your opinion that matters.
