    @tuscanbride:

    The dress that you purchased is very different from the ones you are looking at now. Honestly I don’t think that after you paid for your dress you should spend more money on another dress BUT if it bothers you so much to the point that you can’t stop thinking about it you should try and sell your dress and only if you get the money from it buy another one. If money is not an issue I guess you can afford to do so without having to sell yours.

    In any case, if what’s bothering you most (from looking at the dresses you chose) is the fact that it’s not form fitting you can try and turn your dress into a fit and flare, and maybe adjust the neckline to a deeper sweetheart. If alterations to change your dress would cost you as much as getting a new one- you probably should get a new one (or stick with the original as is).

    I voted to stay with your dress πŸ™‚

    I love the Paloma on you. It is really beautiful. Can you sell your original dress to try and recoup some of the money?

    I had major dress regret, so I can totally relate. Your 1st dress just does not do you justice! I think you should get the dress you feel beautiful in, and don’t spend more than what will cause you a whole other kind of regret (money!). I just couldn’t bear the thought of looking at pictures for the rest of my life and hating the dress. I did go with a considerably more expensive gown, but will likely sell it after. You can sell the 1st one, and recoup at least some money from it? Bottom line, if your gut tells you it’s wrong, you have to fix it. You can’t regret the dress! Best of luck!

    I agree with the other posters…

    it seems to me like the dress you chose is NOTHING Like any of the dresses you LOVE… did you pick it because of price?  because otehrs loved it?  why?

    I’m trying to figure it out:(…  if you hate it…  don’t wear it, exchange it or letthe money go or whatever you have to do.  The first dress is just okay, but it has no WOW factor anything like the others.

    I understand your dress regret, do what makes you happy:)  you do not wanna look back on your day and have any regrets, especially about the dress…

    I love the Paloma Blanca on you.  How much did you spend on the Casablanca?  I agree with firefly2011 that maybe you can sell it to get some of the money back.  It’s pretty, but the last dress is stunning on you.  If you can afford to, I think you should go for it.  I may be biased cuz I’m a PB bride πŸ™‚

    Paloma! It compliments you perfectly and is just the right amount of dress without being anywhere near overdone or overwhelming to your figure. You look sensational in it! The belt is a great choice with it, too! (I think the Lazaro is lovely, but might work against you with all that material weighing you down, not to mention the bite out of your purse!) Sell your first dress and get that beautiful Paloma, lady. πŸ™‚ Congrats!

    The Paloma Blanca is gorgeous on you! I have a feeling you’re leaning toward it too. πŸ™‚

    I actually tried on that Lazaro today. It is incredibly gorgeous in person, and super flattering believe it or not. Judging by your body type, you could really pull it off (I cannot πŸ™ )
