@CocoClassic  First of all, you look gorgeous in that first dress. That being said, I know what you’re going through. I bought a dress I thought I loved and quickly fell out of love with it. I noticed you said they won’t take any returns, but have you asked about store credit? My dress was from DB and I took it back to them, explained my situation, and they were happy to take it back and let me pick a different dress of equal or higher value. I do love that second dress, mostly because it’s a lot like my new dress. Good luck!

@CocoClassic  I have to say, of all of the dresses I really love #2 on you! I think it looks so pretty and has just enough lace and sparkle and is different! I am so sorry that you have had this experience.  I also think that dress #3 looks great on you! I like it better than the Jasmine’s dress as PP said. 

BUT, what it comes down to is what makes you happy! Don’t screw yourself over money wise because you look great in the DB dress, but if it is going to make you miserable I say find something that makes you super happy!

@CocoClassic  I’m a girl…anyways….I don’t like the Jasmine’s dress. I’d go with the DB one, it looks better on you than any of the others.

I like the one you have. I’d just keep that one. You’re wearing the dress for a few hours and there’s nothing wrong with it.

I’d be more worried about ordering something from China that may not look at all like you expect.

@CocoClassic  Yep, I think the Jasmine dress looks like a mummy with weird petals on the bottom.  Just my opinion though.  I do think the first dress was nice as was the 2nd but since those are out of the running, I would stick with the DB dress…I would maybe go with a more interesting belt and you can really accessorize with the dress to make it more special!!

I’d just stick with what you got… so you don’t have deal with other types of stress with ordering a custom made gown from China.

Order the dress you want or you’ll have this on your mind on the wedding day.

@CocoClassic  Wow, you are getting married in Rio…that is awesome!  I would die trying to plan a destination wedding.  Good luck with everything!  Honestly that is just my opinion, if you love the dress and can afford to get it with the possibility of not being able to re-sell yours I say go for it.  It’s ultimately up to what makes you happy 🙂 I would try to find one similar and try it on first!!  It is close to the first one you tried on, but at the same time quite different…
