So I ordered my dress, Watters Cabo, a few months ago and it is finally here. I had been having some regret while waiting for it but now it is worse.
Originally I went dress shopping with my friends and family while I was home visiting and found a dress we all fell in love with Allure 8908:
Then when I got back to Caifornia where I live I went to order the dress….being the curious cat that I am, I tried on more dresses. That is when I found Cabo and made the impulsive decision to buy her. Now she is here and I am stuck with a dress I am not so happy with! It is a gorgeous dress but I keep thinking about the Allure dress that I fell in love with originally and wish I would have just ordered that one.
My wedding is in 11 weeks…not enough time to order the Allure but I have been searching high and low for someone selling it. SO what should I do? Keep the Cabo or try to find the Allure dress?
Here are pics of me in each. The Allure dress was like 4 sizes too big so it’s hard to get an idea of how it would look in my size.

I hate to say it, but I’m not one to lie… I honestly think the Allure looks better on you. It’s just so classy and flattering, and your face is lit up! Sorry!
ETA: it’s not the dress by itself that I like better, because I think you look way better in it than the model!

@MadameTussaud: Don’t apologize! That’s why I posted this, I wasnt honest opinions. Friends always tend to tell you what is going to make you worry less and I want unbiased opinions!
I think the Allure is safe and the Watters is a bit more risky.

The second dress kicks butt.

@misschickpea: YES! I have been emailing back and forth with her.Apparently there is another gal that wanted it before I inquired! As long as the girl doesn’t want it, it’s mine! Keep your fingers crossed for me, it’s my size and everything and the only one I can find.

Both dresses are lovely. I can see that you love the Allure more and it fits you well, but I wouldn’t say it was THAT much better than the Cabo that you should stress yourself out finding another dress. Be happy with the one you have. It is GORGEOUS and you will be gorgeous on your big day 🙂

I adore the second dress on you. I agree with PP’s it looks like it was made for you.

I love the Cabo one.. Have you tried adding a belt similar to the one the Allure one has? I think it would be so beautiful with a belt added.
