    Stick with your original choice - Dress No 1!

    There's a reason why this dress is still on your mind months later - take the plunge for Dress No 2!

    Dress number two is fabulous. If you can afford and it’s in stock go for it! I prefer both the style and fit of number two!

    Dress number 2 is so beautiful! I can understand why you’re having second thoughts- if you can sell the first one then i say go for it!

    it sounds like you bought #1 out of frustration/exhaustion from shopping, influenced by feeling bad about your body (WHICH LOOKS GREAT By The Way IN BOTH DRESSES!!). Meanwhile it sounds like #2 is what’s really going to make you happy. If it were me I would buy #2 if I liked it this weekend (and ultimately sell them both.) 🙂

    PS your venue looks awesome!

    I actually prefer dress 1, but go with your gut and make sure you’re happy.  I had dress regret as well and bought another dress because I could.  Best decision ever for me.

    They both look great on you.  Just go with the one that speaks to your heart the most.  If you can swing it, get both!   I’m a 2 dress bride myself and I did NOT regret it on my wedding day 🙂

    I like dress #2 for you and your wedding location. Sounds like you bought the first one for the wrong reasons so I say go for the trade if it works out. Both shapes look beautiful on you (is that second dress where you felt stuffed into it because you look great!) so you can’t really go wrong but I’d def try to get that second dress the bling is awesome….and I hate bling!

    I prefer dress #1 too… BUT if you’re having second thoughts and can’t stop thinking about #2 – then that’s your answer right?!  Either way, if you get #2 for a great price and it fits, bonus!!!  If not, I think dress #1 is gorgeous, fits you perfect and the lace is super romantic that will match your venue!!!  Good luck hun!

    I also think dress 1 is wow. Dress 2 is just blah and unflattering. Dress 1 hugs in the right places and gives you shape. 

    On dress 1 though, if you realky dont like the lace, I woukd actually have the lace removed and replaced with a plain tulle or chiffon. The lace seems contradicting with the layers on the bodice. But I still like it withthe lace much better than dress 2. 

    I tend to think you have been only thinking about 2 because you know its not your dress.

    I think dress #1 accentuates your curves more and you look hot in it. BUT if you don’t feel comfortable in it I would go with #2. It is very pretty as well and its all about what you feel special in because its your day! I was watching SYTTD the other day and they asked one girl if she wanted to look like she always does or go out of her comfort zone. Its up to you! 

    and your venue is gorgeous!

    I love dress 1.  i think it’s unique and gorgeous.  But you should definitely go with your “gut”.  I read a study that most people never regret the first decision they make based on “gut” instinct.

    Dress 1 for the win, but do what your heart wants.

    I think you look amazing in both, but dress 1 is a jaw dropper for me.

    If they have your size and you have the money, I’d get because it’s pretty much meant to be. I have a rule that if you go home and can’t stop thinking about that particular item then you HAVE to go back and get it.

    I normally vote for the original dress and say to stop looking but I have to vote for dress 2.  I really don’t like the bottom of the first dress and think the second is much more flatterning on you.
