So I have my dress on layaway, its the style I went into the store wanting to have… its $200 plus will cost $200 in alterations. Not bad for a wedding dress :).
But THEN I went to a prom dress store today with a friend & found a pretty dress I really really like the style of & its $150 & it fits me perfectly! I’m not sure if it looks like a wedding dress thou… what do you think?
Pic #1 is my dress on me.
Pic #2 is the prom dress on a model.

I love lace and bows, but I am not really fond of the second dress. I really love the way your first dress choice looks on you.

I don’t know that by looking at the photo I would say”yeah that’s a wedding dress!” BUT at a wedding, seeing a woman wearing that while walking down an aisle, I would never think that it was a PROM dress. I think it’s stunning. It’s different, it’s romantic, it’s fresh. I truly hope you have the guts to make that switch because this is quite a statement dress!! I just love a gutsey bride!

I should add that the prom dress will be the ivory color, it just looks better on me than white does!
I originally really liked my 1st wedding dress, its beautiful but now I’m not sure if its me. I really like how it looked on me but it needed alterations so maybe that’s why I’m second guessing & plus I don’t have good quality pics so I can’t really tell how it looks on me. But everyone says they love it, its perfect for me! I enjoyed trying it on & got excited about being married :).
Then I went into the prom dress store & saw this prom dress & couldn’t believe it! I really liked that dress & had to try it on & liked it a lot as well! I kinda regretted already having my wedding dress on hold.
We’re having a vintage theme & I really like the prom dress as it fits the style and already fits me perfectly. But does it look wedding-ish enough? I don’t want to regret it later. Plus I’d loose my deposit to my other dress, but I think that’s just $20 since it was so cheap!

I’ll go to the store tomorrow & take a pic of the 2nd dress on me if I can. I didn’t have anyone with me to get their opinion & I just couldn’t decide. Funny thing is Fiance went to that store with me the other day & he saw a short length version of that dress & he wanted me to try it on, just for fun so maybe my bridesmaids could wear it & he LOVED it (the short length one in a red color)… he loves things that are not traditional & I do as well.
@virginiamarie: ha yea that’s where I’m stuck, its not typical but I love it anyways. I like being different & our wedding isn’t going to be completely traditional. Yet I also like classic things.. ohhh decisions, decisions…

I personally like the second one. I’m not a big fan of pick ups and ballgowns, but I love lace and layers! My vote is totally biased LOL!

It sound like you really like the second one. Will you lose too much money if you cancel the lay away. If not cancel and get the dress you want. Remember it’s your day.

They are both very pretty! The first one looks more like a wedding dress, but it sounds like you love the second one more, and if it’s a very small deposit that you would lose, I say go for the one you love!

I would have to see the second one on you to make up my own mind. I think they’re both pretty, and I wouldn’t question the second one not looking weddingy enough. The only thing that gives me pause is that I don’t think it’s really all that flattering on the model. I think that the cumberband area should be tighter or narrower or just something. She looks rather straight up and down to me.

I prefer the second dress and I think it would go best with the vintage theme of your wedding.

Hey date twin! I like both. Very tough decision. I think we can only really give you a GREAT opinion if you take a pic with the 2nd dress on. I like the second one ALOT but looks weird on that girl. Id have to see how it is on you.
