    Keep the RI dress.

    Get the WT dress and try to contact the salon to see if they will refund/sell it.

    I love the look of the Rebecca Ingram one!

    Both are very beautiful! To me they have very different looks. The RI is more classic and traditional and the WT is more modern and fun. Both would look beautiful in your venue. It just kinda depends on the look you were going for… do you want a more classic or modern look? 
    I prefer the look of the RI dress for personal preference, but you should honesty have the look you want!

    Personally, I think the Rebecca Ingram dress looks classic and elegant and you look great in it.  I find the WToo dress to be trendy and quite frankly overdone the past few years.

    But ultimately, it only matters if you like it and feel good in it.

    From a more financial aspect, the dress is final sale, so your option is to resell.  You will likely not be able to resell for the same price and get only a fraction back so not only will you go $600 over your original budget but add in whatever the loss will be on the first dress.  Personally, I think there is nothing wrong with “merely” liking a dress.  I don’t think everything has to be this over-the-top head-over-heels in love and nothing less will suffice sort of reaction.  We’re adults living in the real world with budgets.  Like is not a bad word.

    Bhagya Ari :  looks like you’ve made your decision and are looking for approval in getting the more spendy dress… reading your last reply it seems like the RI is opposite of what you want, so based off that and what you’ll really love and feel the best in. Then maybe it’s worth buying the bullet and going with the more spendy option, you don’t want any regrets.

    Bhagya Ari :  OMG, the RI dress is stunning on you.  The WT dress is very pretty, but I don’t think it’s as nice on you as the RI.  The WT dress sort of wears you, as opposed to the RI dress where you’re wearing the heck out of it.  I get what you’re saying about it not matching the venue or something, but I don’t think it’s SO traditional that it will look out of place.

    I had to Google which dress was which as it wasn’t clear from your post, and I 100% thought the top photo was the more expensive dress you loved, and the bottom one was the cheaper one. It certainly looks that way to me. 

    The RI one looks sensational on you, in your shoes I would keep it.

    I don’t know which one is which in the photos… but I like the top one. It’s so luxe looking.

    My dress was almost identical to the Waters, so obviously I love it, but that RI is gooorgeous! It looks so expensive and luxurious, and I love the colour! 

    Now, that said, it will not fit your venue. But is that REALLY that important? I consider myself kind of a hardass on etiquette and making sure all your guests are comfortable and can be harsh about those things – but who gives a fuck if your dress is a little fancy for an outdoor wedding? Its YOUR WEDDING DAY! If you can’t be a little extra then, when can you?!

    Bhagya Ari :  I love the first one, it’s so elegant and timeless and looks more expensive than the white one.  I think it will work for your venue.

    #teamRI.  Definitely classy and luxe and yes it fits the venue. The dress looks expensive.  Go with what you got the feels from not from what you saw on the internet!

    Is the dress/venue matching actually a thing?
