    You look STUNNING in the lace dress.  The Maggie is okay and the David’s bridal is not flattering in my opinion.  The lace dress is amazing on you.

    The one you’ve ordered looks great.  Now STOP SHOPPING FOR OTHER DRESSES!  No good will come of it!

    I like the original much better. The DB one is just okay but I don’t like the Maggie at all (although all three look beautiful on you).

    The lace dress is so classic and romantic. Keep it!

    I’m a lace person and I love that first dress. However I have to agree that the Maggie is very figure flattering.

    I think you’re perfectly fine sticking with your original dress but I will share my own experience…I bought a trumpet Lazaro dress that everyone loved and was a gorgeous dress. But like you, I couldn’t stop thinking about another dress because my mind was stuck on something else. In your case satin, in my case a ballgown. When my custom order dress arrived, it didn’t fit my body as well as the clipped floor sample and all my initial worries were confirmed. The trumpet didn’t show off my waist and accentuated my hips. I ended up going back and still purchasing the second dress because I feel so much better in that regardless of what everyone else says.

    Moral of the story: You gotta either be 100% confident with your decision; or go with your gut feeling, ignore everyone else and get the dress YOU want. Like you said, you don’t get two weddings and you don’t want to regret what you missed out on.

    Also you can easily do a rush order on the Maggie if you want to. I went to Mariposa four months before my wedding looking for a backup dress because of my dress doubts (which I should’ve listened to), and they told me that the Maggie I liked could be rushed in 6-8 weeks.

    Don’t panic yet!  Wait until you try on your dress that was ordered for you!  If it is not full enough they can probably do something in alterations…maybe add some puff to it or something. 

    By the way, the 8 looks amazing!

    Are you standing on a platform for these pics or are you tall enough to wear the dress without being hemmed? Because if the dress does get hemmed that changes the look of the skirt too. You lose some of the flare at the bottom, another reason I hated my dress after alterations. But in your case it may give you more of what you need because even though the skirt will be even less full, it will drape down like the first pic instead of flaring out.

    Please do not take this the wrong way, but I think you’re crazy LOL, the lace dress looks SOOOO stunning on you!!!  The other two are no comparison!  I like the size 8 the best in the pics, and I am sure that your size 4 will look amazing on you.
