I think you look gorgeous in all of them but you have a different Bridal Swag with the first. I think you should inquire about having them make the first and sell the DB on EBAY or wear it for some other special even. Either way you still win. <3

I think you look beautiful in the dress you have but I can understand your frustration with having to pick a third dress!!! I can’t imagine! Have you tried swapping it for a different davids bridal dress? I have heard on here that as long as alterations haven’t been done you can do this? Even if a dress you find there is a little more than you originally spent it’s better than having to sell the other gown and lose money on it. how about this galina dress? It is similar and  a strap could probably be added if you really wanted it  good luck!!!

@CocoClassic:  dang, it’s good you started looking so early. It’s killing me that those first two dresses are gone.

Ok–the dress that you have is plain, but it is classy and lovely. I tink you like the same thing I do because you mentioned “flowy” and light. It is that. You can bling it up with lots of accessories, you know. Don’t give up on it.

I worry about you being able to sell it so I wouldn’t count on that.

@CocoClassic:  You can tell just by your body language that you are not so much in LOVE with the DB dress. And compared to the others it doesn;t seem like your style. I normally don’t ay this but choose another. My fave was the second one on you. Good Luck !

The DB dress really does look absolutely fantastic on you! It makes your figure va-va-voooooom! That said, if the other one is the one you really love, then get the one you really love. But do NOT sell the DB dress until after you have the new one in hand and know that you adore it. It would really stink to end up with neither, especially since the one you have is so superb on you. Good luck!

I think what matters most is that you are getting married! I am sure you will look lovely in whichever one you pick. On your big day, other than putting on your dress, your thoughts will be far from it!

I know I’m late to chime in on this (have only been on WB for a week-ish) but in all truth… you can rock any of these dresses!  Finances are always in the forefront when there is sooo much to put out and it seems to never end. Try Craigs list for few weeks and see if DB dress sells – no charge and you’d be waiting anyway. 

You could work with the DB by having a new skirt made of organza. Use the fabric from the orginal (DB) train to make the one shoulder strap. This could save you some time & money instead of getting a whole new dress made. I’m sure you could fine someone locally for reconstruction.

The bodice looks great on DB dress, I think the skirt isn’t fitted as the other dresses so you don’t feel that WOW – remove the underskirt & have it altered from an A-Line to a Trumpet. Also I would “bling” the belt with rhinestones/crystals – could do this yourself for next to nothing.
