    Dress 1 looks amazing on you!! 

    Dress 2 is not nearly as flattering.  I think you made the right choice, definitely.

    Personally, I think the dress that you have already purchased is more flattering on you.

    I hate it when I have to agree with dress doubts, but the second one really does have more personality, I think.  

    That said, part of what’s weird for me about dress #1 is that it looks like it doesn’t fit well in the bust- it’s kind of undefined.  It’s a beautiful dress… do you that that with some alterations you might feel better about it?

    Number 1 by a mile, number 2 makes you look a lot wider. Number 1 is lovely, and flatters your figure.

    Look, you love what you love because you love it.  If you love the second one, then get it, I say.  You should be able to look like what your picture is of a bride.

    I do like the second one more, it just makes you light up more 🙂

    I think the new dress looks much better on you, I don’t the cut of the original dress is flattering in the middle. Good luck with either choice!

    I am partial to the second one. I will be wearing Enzoani Fabi (google for pictures) so I really love the bottom of your dress.

    Your face and entire body posture looks different in the second picture. Use your woman-ly inuition

    I find the first dress much more flattering on your figure: It highlights the narrowness of your waist & then flows away at the exact right point. The only thing is that it needs to be steamed (I think that’s what’s throwing some bees off).

    The strapless on the 2nd one is already out of your comfort zone & honestly, I’m really not crazy about the ruffles.

    I am torn. I like how number one makes you look so much smaller on top. Where number two gives you a beautiful defined waist but makes you look big on top.

    I think with a couple alterations dress #1 would fit perfect and look stunning.

    I like dress 1.  If you want your attire to be more ‘interesting’, maybe find a statement necklace or great earrings to go with it.

    I think the first dress suits you more. They are both pretty but I like the first one better!

    I think dress #1 gives you a really nice shape and the neckline is super flattering– you look great in it!  If you want the “fun” factor of dress #2 maybe experiment a bit with a different belt or jewelry as others suggested?

    That said, I just changed my mind on a dress I had initially purchased and went with something that felt more special so I know the feeling– ultimately you have to go with the one that makes you the happiest!

    I think number one is very flattering on you, I would stick with that one and maybe glam it up with a headpiece, shoes, jewelry, etc…
