Both dresses are beautiful. The Jim Hjelm dress is really pretty but the one you are wearing looks GREAT on you! Both are very different. I wish you had a pic of you in the Jim dressTongue out But if you are thinking about it that much, then it mUST be meant to be πŸ™‚

I think you look absolutely gorgeous in the Marisa dress! I tried on another dress that I liked but I stayed with my original. I think what you are feeling is normal. You look superb πŸ™‚ Great choice.

Do you have it in your budget to switch or do one as a reception dress?

I tried on that SAME Marisa gown (you’re at Mary Linn’s in Pasadena right?)!  I really really thought it was pretty… but out of my price point.  I think you’re a lucky girl who looks GREAT in the Marisa– I say keep it!  Laughing

The dress you are wearing looks amazing on you!  There may be many reasons why you are doubting yourself, and we can  all try to talk you into the dress you already bought, but ultimately you have to be happy with the dress you wear on your wedding day.  The first thing you need to do is figure out if you can afford to switch dresses.  Most likely the store where you bought your dress will NOT charge a restocking fee.  At mos places, once you order the dress it is YOURS and you will be responsible for the total cost of the dress.  You can always try selling the first dress, but you will not be able to do it for the price you paid.  Try calling the store where you bought the dress. If they sell the second dress they may be able to work something out with you.  Good luck!

I love the Marisa dress!  i think it really suits you, and it’s also just my personal preference.  My preference doesn’t really matter though as I agree with the other girls that what matters most is that YOU love your dress.

I you love the Jim dress more, go for it.  However, I think the Marisa is more classic and timeless and the Jim dress might ‘date’ a little when you look back at pics.  This is a pretty minor point though.

I am really indecisive so know how you feel.  Take pictures of yourself in the Jim dress then compare.  Would you ask your Fiance which one he prefers?

They are both beautiful dresses but I like the dress you already have more. You look stunning it in. I like its more classic styling, while it is still very modern and romantic.

Before you get carried away ask some questions and crunch the numbers and find out if you can even afford to change your mind. 

It’s also important to acknowledge to yourself that it’s alright if you love two (or more) dresses. Dresses are not like husbands. You are allowed to love more than one! Just because you love the Jim Hjelm dress does not mean that the Marisa dress is not also “yours” and that you cannot also love it! But probably for the sake of your wallet you will have to choose one. I hope you figure out the right dress solution for you. Either way, you’re going to look fabulous.

I definitely prefer the dress you are wearing, though to be fair, I’m not really into “modern” type things. Not to offend you or anyone else, the little circles on the Jim Hjlem remind of of the suckers on an octopus’s tentacles… 😑 You look great in the  Marissa πŸ™‚
