    Honestly? You look amazing in both. If I had to pick, my choice would be #1. But number two is awesome also, but for different reasons.

    They look so similar… You made the right choice by saving money since they both have the look you’re going for!

    If it were between #1 and #2 and ALL things were equal, I’d choose #1.

    That being said…you already purchased #2 AND it’s waaay less expensive AND the dresses are super similar anyway.  There’s no reason to put yourself $1,000 in debt to buy a dress that’s twice as expensive and not even that different from the first.  It’s not like you bought a mermaid style dress when your dream all along was a poufy ball gown, you know?

    Honestly I like the one you purchased slightly more even with them being so similar.

    The lace on the first dress has a slightly better look to it, but it’s not enough of a difference to justify the extra cost and money lost. You look amazing in the second one, don’t even give it another thought!

    @OnceUponATime:  It sounds odd, but at the top of the one you didnt buy it is slightly pointy and the second appears like a softer transition there. Also, I like the organza underlay slightly more than the lace of the first and I usually would vote for lace but not this time. After looking at them again, also not a fan of the sewn in belt of the first. I do love the buttons on the first, but shoot, you can add those to any dress if you really love them.

    I really like the second one! The chiffon bottom is totally unique. Stop torturing yourself, you look gorgeous in dress 2!

    ok the lace does look nicer on the first one upon closer inspection, but as a general first impression I’d say the 2nd one all the way! it flatters you much more, especially considering you’re not even standing on a pedestal in the photos!
