I guess if you have the extra money and you really hate your current dress, get what you love. It may take you a while to sell the old one though (like a year, from what other bees have said). Honestly, your current dress is stunning, and it doesn’t sound like the one you’re describing is much different, but you’re the one who will be wearing it. 🙂

This is a Monique right? I remember your headaches when you first bought the dress used, and then trying to sell it. Now that the dress is cleaned, I think it look faboulous on you, and I especially love the chantilly lace! What is the other dress you’re thinking about?

Your body is rockin in that dress! You could totally jazz it up by adding a sash/belt and a broach at the bustle. What about the dress don’t you like?

The dress you want and the dress you have look almost identical in the pictures anyway. Are you sure its worth the extra money for the second dress?

Have you tried preownedweddingdress.com? That is supposed to be the most successful site for selling dresses, but it may take a few months.

I think the dress you have is gorgeous and it looks pretty much the same as the one you want.

I think they look almost identical as well.

I bought my two dresses from salons I absolutely hated. I got yelled at and treated horribly by the sales manager in one, the other’s owner had made rude and inappropriate comments about my body. In the end though, I couldn’t care where they came for or if I paid a little too much for them, all I cared about is for the dress to look good. I don’t believe in the karma thing either. I would wear a used dress if it was the right dress even if came from a divorced bride or whatever. The dress is just a material object designed to make you look good, nothing else.

I think looking at your wedding photos the shady seller will be the last thing on your mind, you’ll probably only think about how happy you were that day. After the wedding all those wedding planning details become fuzzy and stop mattering.

I think the dress you have is SO beautiful and flattering on you~ and the dress you want is VERY similar. If it were me, I don’t know that I could justify an extra 3-4k for something that is essentially identical!

I think you look amazing in that dress!  The lace is stunning, it fits you perfectly, your body looks great… I love it!  And with your skin tone, the dress looks like a bright white. 

But as a two dress bride myself, if you don’t like it, nothing I or anyone else says is going to change that.  You need to love it.  

I would go try on the other dresses and see how you feel… you might realize that you actually really love the one you have!  Since you look absolutely amazing in this one, I think you might have a hard time topping it 🙂
