here’s my story:
i had always dreamed about a drop-waist mermaid/trumpet wedding dress in satin/taffeta.
after trying on numerous wedding dresses (50+ AT LEAST!!), i was convinced by a friend, by my mom, and also by myself (i think) that i look better in an all lace gown, and that was what i ordered.
recently, as many bees have, i started to doubt whether i had made the right choice. even though i don’t have time to order another designer gown, but i believe i still have time to look for floor samples and used/preowned gowns, or even have one custom-made for me.
therefore, i have attached photos of me wearing the gown that i ordered and photos of 2 other dresses that i can’t stop thinking about! I would like to have your honest opinion on how you think of the dress on me.
the dress that i ordered:
thanks in advance for helping me out! and good luck to everyone in find their dream dresses!

I love the lace, but I personally would go for the maggie, they both look fantastic on you! Is that Mariposa Boutique btw? That’s where I got my dress! It’s an enzoani.

I think the lace one looks beautiful on you (and best out of all 3)!

You look soooo pretty in your lace gown. The others are nice, but there is something about the other one that stands out on you. I also love the the way the trim flares out at the end with the lace. It seems I have seen that Maggie alot on wedding bee. So I like the all lace since it is different from the rest.

go the original, you would be crazy to go for the others. The first one was made for you. I think anyway.

Love, love, love, your original dress! I totally wanted a dress like yours before I went shopping. I ended up buying a Maggie similar to your second picture. I love my dress, but I’m still thinking about the all lace dress. Don’t fret . . . I think you made the perfect choice.

I also think the lace/original one looks best on you.

The lace dress looks amazing on you! The second dress also looks great! But I don’t love the pick up rose thing (just a personal opinion). The third dress is nice, but not as flattering and doesn’t have as many cool details.

You look great in all of them. Not much help, I guess, but hopefully comforting to know that you will look good in whichever dress you choose. I think the first two dresses are more flattering to your figure, however (the halves of your body have better proportions).
Plus maybe your friend and your mom saw something in person that doesn’t translate to photos that made it obvious to them which dress you should choose. And it sounds like your gut reaction, which you’re now doubting, was the lace.

Honestly, you look great in all of them, and that’s why it’s so hard for a lot of brides to choose one dress when there are so many beautiful ones out there.
My personal preference is the lace gown that you already bought anyway. I don’t think it’s worth it to start looking for a different dress. Stick with the original one!

I think the lace is way more special. You made the right choice!

The all lace gown is beautiful! If you are already have that I don’t see why the need to change because you look stunning in it. However, I think the Maggie is also a beautiful dress. I don’t really like the DB one though
