Ok.. a little background story.
I was engaged in February, and shortly after, my mother and I were in a city 6 hours away and to pop into a dress salon and try on dresses for fun. I wasn’t planning to buy a gown until a few months later. While I was at the salon, I tried on the Miri by Maggie Sottero and fell in love. I had 4 complete strangers come over to compliment me on the dress. I was sure it was the one.
Flash forward a few months later, and I was shopping with my mom, sister, mother-in-law, future sister-in-law and one of my bridesmaids. The store in my home city had the Miri and I was excited to try it on. Unfortunately, the sample gown was 2 sizes too small (the one in Feb had been in my size), and as a result, I couldn’t get the same visual from before, and I didn’t have the same “feeling”. I panicked a little, and with the pressure to order a dress soon, I ordered a beautiful Essense of Australia gown. Recently, I went into the store again and tried on the sample, and realized that I regret buying it and keep finding myself googling picture of the Miri, and wishing I had purchased it instead.
What should I do?
Here is the EOA gown:
And here is the Miri (I don’t have a picture of me in it)
