    Buy dress 1 online and see what it looks like. If I like it, try to sell the dress I own.

    Keep dress 2, but take the pick-ups out (like the original)

    Keep dress 3 that has the added pick-ups

    @whitecrayon101:  I voted to keep your dress, and take out the added pickups! I think that silhouette is lovely on you!

    I don’t want to vote because I dont’ think it’s smart to buy a second dress online when you haven’t been able to try it on. I LOVE the look of the dress, but sometimes they can look totallly different in real life, or when they’re on a body instead of a hanger. Can you find it to try it on somewhere? Or a similar dress?

    I personally do not like dress 3 at all. The pick ups just make it so chaotic. You have a great figure so it seems like you would look great in any of the 3 dresses but I voted dress 1 because it seems more elegant and classy.

    I would keep your dress. I actually can’t even really see the extra pick-ups.  I think the dress you ended up with is a very special wedding dress and its unique. I also think it looks good on you.

    I tried on a dress just like the first dress because I thought I’d really like it too and you feel like you are wearing something very “in” right now (with the decorated waist). But, it really comes across as very plain and boring. My mom wouldn’t even let me consider it seriously. And, I think in retrospect, I would have really regreted it if I had fought for that dress.

    I voted one because I really dislike pick-ups. I don’t like the material of any of the dresses though, so obviously we have different styles and you should go with what you love.

    I like the dress you own better than the 1st– but I think it would look lovely without the extra pick-ups. Is the dress tight at your waist? In the last photos it looks like it could be altered there, but maybe it’s just the way the fabric looks.

    I like the first dress, but also the second and third. To be honest, I really do not like the idea of ordering online unless you tried it on in store first. Is that an option?

    First dress, because I really hate pickups, and because the sweetheart neckline is so much more flattering.

    I like the dress with the pick ups. You had them put in for a reason, so you must have liked them at some point? You’re going to get all kinds of opinions because some bees are biased to a particular style or fit, esp since both pics are not of you, per se. Do you feel like a bride in your dress? If not, have you tried it on with some accessories and good make up and hair done? that seems to help some brides. As for ordering online, I wouldnt do it, unless you can try on the SAME dress at a salon somewhere, or unless you plan to spend more on a 2nd alterations appointment w/your 2nd dress :/ 

    I think the dress you have is very flattering, makes your chest look great, gives you an awesome shape and is very elegant and classy, but fun w/the pick ups. I thought about a dress w/pick ups too,

    Personally, I would go with dress 1, but I don’t really like pickups at all. If its in your budget to buy dress 1, thats what I’m voting for. I would do it only if you could afford dress 1 even if you aren’t able to sell your dress.
