I do love the newer one but have you already bought it?

If not then:

Isnt it too late to order or will a rush order make it in time?

Can you easily buy the newer dress?

B! I think the second dress is more universally flattering. Have you tried it on yet?

I hate to say this, but I do love the new dress more. It looks romantic and I love the vintage feel. It also looks super flattering. Maybe try and see if you can buy a sample?

I hate when this happens, but I really like the newer one better. I admired that one as well before I got my dress. I would track it down to a store, see if you would be able to put in a rush order for it, and if so, then try it on. I wouldn’t try it on before knowing if you can get it or not though, cause that just might end in heartbreak.

If you cant get that dress, and you’re still having regret, maybe go to Davids Bridal and try on some dresses there. They have tons of super flattering plus sized dresses.

Both dresses are a similar shape so it could be possible to alter your old dress to look more like the the new one. The old one could be poofier with a crinoline and you could add a lace jacket or beaded capped sleaves. I also think a different belt could be better. 

I do think with only two months to go there’s no way to get your new dress unless you get an off the rack sample or a preowned gown. Remember, you’ll need to have it in your hands at least a month before the wedding for alterations.

Hmm….I’d have to see the newer one on YOU!  Although I could see you looking amazing in it. 

Try it on and see how you feel then. You never know until you put it on…  And of course, post pics for us to see.


ps I personally feel that the best embellishment on a dress is the person in it 🙂

B. I love the newer one on you! Sorry! I prefer the bottom more and the fabric. Can you still order it and try it on?
