So I bought my dress Casablanca 1985 this past November for my wedding next November. But now im feeling that I made the wrong choice! Can you please help me!!!
This is my dress, bought in diamond white and changed the neckline to sweetheart.
back of the dress….
These are the other two dresses that I also loved but obviously didnt buy….
Did I make the wrong choice??? Im willing to buy a new dress if I really feel I need to! I know ill be able to sell the casablanca at some point if it came down to it!
Also, if you do like the one I bought does anyone know what I can do to the bottom to make it not do the accordian thing its doing now???

I love the one you chose! It’s classic and romantic–and very flattering. Plus, the veil is perfect.

I think the one you have now is classic and timeless:) You might look back at the 3rd one and not like the ruffles or strap on the shoulder…

Your dress is very very beautiful!!!! No need to go out running and spend more money because it looks stunning on you!
Is there something in particular you don’t like? Because to me it looks amazing! I love the fact that it’s not too big, just classy and beauiful!

Thanks girls! The one thing that bothers me about the dress I bought is the bottom, although it has beautiful beading I dont like how it accordians on the bottom. Every time I tried it on, and I tried it on at 6 different stores it did the same thing and no one had any suggestions on how to make it not do that! I dont want all my wedding pictures to look like it does above =(

Get a crinoline? That might help it stand up a bit more… Btw love your first one.

@Leonard2B: I think if you added some crinoline to the bottom it wouldn’t do that at all. Even my dress (which is very ruffley organza at the bottom) does that without a crinoline. I think you can’t tell from the photos because the other two are touching the ground, which is preventing the fabric from hanging loosely. I think your dress looks stunning on you, and i love love love the back with the buttons too! I suggest you go back to the store and ask to try some mermaid/trumpet style petticoats on. They will help 🙂

nooo, dont get another dress, the one you chose is beautiful. I agress with TopazWedding, get a petticoat or something to put undernieth . The shape of your dress is stunning.

Holy figure lady. The one you chose is like my fantasy dress, especially when you put a sweetheart on it. YIKES! No comparison, the first one looks ten times better than the other two. Please do not have regret, you have just made me even more excited to start shopping!

Noooo don’t get another one. I love the one you bought! It is so classic, timeless, elegant, romantic…and you look amazing in it! Like others have said, if you wear a mermaid slip/crinoline it will puff out the front, and get rid of the “accordian” action. Or, your seamstress might even be able to just add extra layers of crinoline in the front of the dress (if you don’t want any extra poof on the sides or back).

I like the one you bought way more than the other two. Add a mermaid petticoat.

Thank you everyone! You all definitely made me feel better about my choice! Imgoing back to the store next month to look at Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses I will try it on again with a petticoatunder it and hopefully that does the trick!!!

I second the crinoline suggestion. I just hope you have a few extra inches in the length of the dress because the crinoline will need it.

@vermontia: I definitely have some length to play withide pending on shoes I pick, I’ll make sure I look for a shorter heel! Thanks for the advice!
