    @mariana17:  I love the first one. If you feel it is too much lace, I am sure the seamstress can alter the lace to make the top look like the 2nd dress (with just the sleeves).

    I love both dresses on you, but the high neckline of the first dress seems to be making you a bit uncomfortable. Your body language speaks volumes in that second photo.

    I’m in the second dress camp, I think it’s slightly more flattering (as v-necks generally are versus high necklines on most people) and you just look happier/more confident in it.

    @mariana17:  Keep the dress you got!! It is STUNNING!! So unique, and so classic. The lace neckline is so so so gorgeous. And the full skirt looks expensive and dreamy. The second lace dress is so popular right now, it doesn’t ‘wow’ me anymore. But your dress is WOW!!!

    @mariana17:  It looks like you can easily modify the dress you have to look like the dress you want.  Just take it to a seamstress and see what they say!  Both are stunning.

    @mariana17:  I voted keep what you have.

     

    If you want to make your dress look “younger”, you could try removing the closed neck part and putting a sparkly belt on.

    @mariana17:  I actually like the second one and looks better on you. More young and vibrant!

    if you don’t mind losing the money, I think it’s worth it so you don’t regret.

    LOVE the first dress.  It’s so grand and classy.  Although the 2nd dress is also nice and looks beautiful on you, I feel like I have seen that dress a million times.  I was not “wow” by it.

    @mariana17:  I voted for the 2nd dress because I personally like it better and I agree it’s more age appropriate. BUT, you could have the 1st dress altered at the top and add a blingy belt!

    I think you need to do 1) what your gut is telling you 2) wear what YOU want to wear

    I had the same problem I found a dress and liked it but then found a second dress and LOVED it. They looked similar on the top, but I just knew that I would regret it if I didn’t go with the one I loved. I lost a little money, but it was worth it to me.

    I love the 2nd dress.  Both are beautiful, but I find the 2nd more flattering on you.

    Totally voting second dress here – I think the first one is a beautiful dress, but I think you are right in that the second is much more age appropriate. And it looks stunning on you!

    @PennyLane67:  I agree with this.  It wouldn’t be a big deal to change the neckline on the first dress a bit, and then get or make a blingy belt.

    I absolutely love the second but it’s not my $$$ I totally understand your predicament. I wish I could help more but I think it all comes down to your $$$ situation if you can spare a few hundred dollars to have the dress of you dreams that’s what I would do.

    I voted worth it even though I prefer your first choice. It would be different if you had never tried the second one on, but now you may never get it out of your head. I had dress regret and I did buy a second one, so maybe I am biased, but I also spoke to some other girls before I did, and any of them that had regret before the wedding wished they had gone with the second one.

    Unless you are super strapped for cash, a year from now you probably aren’t going to regret the loss of money on the first one, you may regret wearing a dress you didn’t love.
