@Selcier:  No bridal regret for me, but i HAD to comment and say your “backup” dress is INCREDIBLE. You look like a red carpet goddess.

Your decision was spot on- I don’t typically like one shoulder dresses but the second one is fantastic on you. Great choice, and what a beautiful color!

Yes, I had a similar experience.  I picked out my first dress, which was beauitful on me, and showed off my figure.  It was romantic lace and very simple.  They forgot to order my dress at my dress shop, and I had a melt down. 

As you can imagine, I went to a different dress shop to order a new one.  My second dress is super girly, frilly, sparkley, totally not me.  But it’s got the va va voom factor I want on MY wedding day. 

I considered having a ceremony and reception dress, but it’s a very low key venue, and doesn’t really go with my style to switch mid evening.

So, obvi you’ll look gorgeous either way.  The question is, what do you want to feel like on your wedding day, and which dress makes you feel that way?


Best luck!

@Selcier:  frankly i love BOTH dresses.  you have an amazing statuesque figure for both gowns.  

the dress is a tricky mental exercise for so many brides.  there’s so much more internal struggle that goes on than i ever would have imagined.  i definitely lost some sleep over my choice and came extremely close to buying a second dress.  but practicality won me over and i stuck to my first choice.  but i can easily imagine having bought a second dress and getting bowled over.

that blue is dramatic and unique – you will be a smashing bride.  congrats!

Wow that dress is gorgeous!!! It would look really awesome with a blingy sash on mesh if you wanted to “jack it up”.

I really love both dresses, but the first dress looks too big on you and the second one fits you like a glove! And I agree – that train is fabulous.

That is one fabulous wedding dress!  I love it!  Looks so much more elegant too.


I had dress regret.  I ended up buying FIVE dresses.  #3 ended up being “the one.”  I sold the rest.
