So…. The thing that I have been dreading since day one of my dress search has reared it’s ugly head. I’m talking about: Dress regret.
I wanted something different, something fun, something romantic, something that looked great on me, and something that would look appropriate for a ceremony in a Catholic Basicila and not look too formal for a small reception at a Country Club.
I went to many places, tried on many dresses, and loved bits and pieces of every single dress.
I tried on one in particular that I really liked (first dress):
This dress looked amazing on me. I honestly think that the model doesn’t do it justice and she’s probably a foot taller than me. The thing that made me hesitate was becasue I didn’t feel that it “fit” in with my ideas about my country club reception. So, I went to a trunk show at a place that is a few hours away to try on the Rosa Clara “Camelia”. Turns out the dress wasn’t there, but, there were many Aire Barcelona dresses including the one that I bought, “Bahamas” (second dress):
I really really liked this dress, it has ruffles like the Rosa Clara dress, a little sparkle, etc. But it looks worlds BETTER on the Model, probably because i’m a foot shorter. Anyway, I felt pretty confident about it until I went to a wedding this weekend. The bride wore a dress that was basically the same except the skirt didn’t have ruffles.
Here’s the thing, I might want the first dress. If I do, I’ll only technically only be out three hundred dollars. (the first dress was half the price and includes free alterations).
Should I do it???? HELP.

Hm i can’t offer any advice really, but do you have a pic of yourself in the aire barcelona dress. I think sometimes we are our own worst critics and im sure you look great in it. If you really don’t like it, have time to get other dress then just do it you can always sell the aire barcelona.

I personally love the second dress, but you are the one that is going to have to be happy. You could always get the first dress too and then wear it to the reception after the ceremony.

I think you shoud try your hardest to find the first dress that you love. It seems like the money thing isn’t so much of an issue for you so it would all depend on if you can find your dress or not. Nothing wrong with being a two dress bride if you can afford it or if you do find the first dress you can always try and sell the second dress later. And if you dont ever find your first dream dress.. then maybe it just wasn’t meant to be right?

Here is me… I feel like I look short.

Go with the Mori Lee. I like the layers, but horizontal lines are not good on us short girls.

I think the dress you have on looks beautiful on you. I also think it is romantic and different yet classy and can fit in with the decor in any venue. The first dress is beautiful too. But I really like the one you have! If this feeling sticks though, you may as well just go with the other dress because you want NO regrets on your wedding day, especially about your dress.

I love the dress, but again you have to feel comfortable and if money isn’t an issue then get the other dress if that is what you want

Ugh, I don’t know. Mostly, I can’t believe I messed this part up. I think I was sick of being indecisive!

I absolutely love the dress you bought. So much so, if you decide to get the other dress PM me I have been drooling over that dress for months. (But I still think you look amazing in it!)

I really like the dress you bought! You look great in it! But I think you should go for the dress you love, even if it’s not the one you already have 🙂
