As some of you may remember I have been having serious dress regret for a few weeks now. I went with something that was totally different than I had originally wanted and althought it’s a gorgeous dress I am just not sure. If I could exchange my dress, should I?
FYI: My venue-http://www.grandislandmansion.com/
I have thinking about what it is that I don’t like and there are two things:
1). The dress’ details don’t come out in photos as amazing as they are in person. In photographs the front of the dress looks like three diamonds rather than ornate designs.
2). There is a dramatic difference between the bejeweled top and plain bottom. While I love the sparkles there is none on the skirt making it so different.
What I do love: the bling, the fabric, the cathedral train, and the corset. While I wanted a sweetheart this dipped top is enough and accentuates the girls.
Now the option. I found online the Sottero and Midgely dress Linda. While it is much much simpler I like it that way. I think it is classic elegance, photographs well and the simplicity on the top and bottom go well together and are complimented with the jeweled band. I have not tried this dress on and I am not sure how the higher waist would look on me.
Here is my dress:

I think it is important to try on a high waisted dress to see how it looks on you (even if its not the exact same design). I like your dress but I must admit I love the Sotero & Migdley. It reminds me of Kate Middletons reception gown 🙂

Here is an example of me in a few higher waisted dresses that I tried on, not sure which I like better. I feel so lost! 🙁

I think the original dress is much more flattering; it really accentuates your small waist and great figure. With the others, I think that would be lost. Stick with the one you have – you lookd beautiful in it!

@Button:I cannot agree more. Your dress shows off your tiny waist whereas the other dresses are not that flattering. You are small and the other dresses lose your shape. Love your original dress. I don’t think it has too much going on, and it looks ubber elegant!

Thanks ladies! Looking at the other dresses I totally agree. I don’t know I can’t settle down and just love my dress. Argh, it is soooo frustrating!

Keep your original dress! It is beautiful and it flatters you.

I would try on the Linda, and have you seen the Rachael? Similar look http://www.maggiesottero.com/dress.aspx?keywordText=rachael&keywordType=any&page=0&pageSize=15&style=A3408
I understand your position because I too had dress regret and was told byt he other Bees that my dress was great and that I should stick with it. I compared it to a few others I was thinking about, but wasn’t feeling very confident about it, and was told they weren’t as flattering. I thoguht the details of my dress were grogeous, but every time I saw pictures of me in it I became less and less sure of it and the uneasiness set in. Well, I finally went and tried on one more dress and I just knew it was perfect. The Bees agreed with me, I purchased it, and I don’t regret my decision at all. You’ll see that I debated the Adorae, which I know your mom liked, but I was also torn between classic and sexy – I think the one I chose was a perfect compromise. I feel great about it.So I’d say don’t be afraid to change your dress, but don’t do it unless you are positive that the new dress is the one!
Threads from my decision if you’re interested (first hwen I started thinking about it, second when I made the decision)
