    They’re almost exactly the same… I don’t think it’d be worth it to be out $1k for a nearly identical dress.

    I am struggling to see the differences. Its really just a different neckline right? maybe just see if they can do that in alterations? Why stress when they look SO similar?

    I like yours much better and I think it’s because of neckline also. Much more intricate, it’s very pretty!

    I’m sorry, I don’t see a differenc at all. I went back and forth, still nothing. OK, a slightly different neckline….:)

    Okay, so I’m going to be the Devil’s advocate and I do think the second dress is equally lovely to your dress. So it all boils down to; are you really unhappy with your dress? Do not get hungup on the idea that there is just one best ever dress out there. There are just too many. Is your dress something you loved? Did you feel good in it? What is it about the second dress that makes you second guess your choice?

    The only true difference I see is the neckline. Normally I wouldn’t advice to go and try it on, but I think here you should try the dresses back-to-back. If you do end up loving the second dress more, and if you have the money to spare, I’m not one to tell you to stick by your first choice. 

    If you do not have the money to spare, trying on the other dress might bring heart ache. Maybe try on the dress you ordered again to reaffirm that it really does look lovely. Also consider what alterations would be available to make your first dress your absolute dream dress. 

    Ultimately, though; make a rational decision. Do not do anything rash in a panic.

    They’re so similar….I don’t think it would be worth the lost money tI get dress 2, but ultimately its up to you. Original dress is beautiful

    jlybrand:  1 they are both almost identical maybe the neckline is a tad different but you can have that altered. So i say stick to dress 1

    2. I would wait for your dress to come in before getting accessories. One of my regrets was getting my accesories too soon and i realized i needed much bigger earings than i had ordered but by that time i was spending so much already i didn’t even bother changing lol

    Surely a seamstress could alter the neckline to more what you want for like $50?

    See if your seamstress can sew some gold beading into the dress to go alongside the sparkle on top and the belt. Then, you’ll solve your gold accessory problem! 

    I have an ivory dress with silver beading and I’m using gold as an accent color on the bridesmaids. I don’t think it clashes at all. Sparkle is sparkle.
