    Normally I’d say fight for the original gown but I think you made the best choice here. You are glowing in the new gown!

    @tarheelgrad98:

    “And the new dress just has *something* that the first one doesn’t. To me, it’s just so soft and romantic, and that’s exactly how I feel with my Fiance…and I’ve never felt that way in my life. It seems silly to describe a dress this way, but when I put on that new dress, I felt like I looked on the outside the way I feel on the inside with my Fiance…he calls me his princess, and I’m so much more soft and romantic and head-over-heels in love with him…anyway, it just felt so right!!

     

    NOT silly at all and I totally get what you mean.  When I saw the pic of you in the new dress I sucked in my breath a little.  So, I am totally biased because  your second dress is TOTALLY something I would have picked… 😉

    I think that having some dress regret then buying something you KNOW is right for you now is better than looking back and wishing you’d worn a different dress after the fact, as long as finances allow for it.

    I speak from the experience of someone who does kind of regret the dress choice now, after the wedding.  Wish I’d just bought the dress I REALLY wanted after all instead of kinda-sorta ‘settling’!

    Anyway, gorgeous choice!

    Love the new dress.  First of all I have a thing for pockets. Secondly it is romantic and dreamy and flowy. I like the beaded lacy “sleeves” too.

    I think you look better in the old one.. i agree with another reader that said if you aren’t as satisfied.. Look at making an alteration..  However, if you get another dress try a few more on with those elements you like because you are beautiful and should have it fitted just a little more.. Just my thoughts..

    The second dress is pure perfection!!! Great choice – as I was reading through the posts, I was thinking…oh, I really hope she picks the new second one. 

    When I saw the pictures of the lace detailing on top – I thought that it looked flattering, romantic, vintage, and yet utterly classic. 

    Congratulations! I’m so happy you made the last minute fix to the dress that will make you feel so happy on your wedding day! You will take everyone’s breath away!

    i think the new one is way more elegant and “bridal.” it is so classic and timeless, and i see it as more formal.

    i absolutely love the lace and the pockets. wish i would have found this dres….
