    Hmm, I actually think that your dress is simpler than the other one.  I think yours has simple lines, compared to the ruching on the 2nd dress, which is what makes it fancier.   However, I do see your point about not “matching” your inspiration.  

    Can you try your dress with a non-beaded sash?  Maybe ivory, champagne, or even sage green?  That might take away from the beading a bit, and may help you decide.

    Totally agree!

    If she bought it for $300, could you try selling it and then give her the money back. You might make a profit from it!

    Oh, and I also agree that the second dress is a bit more “stylish” while the dress you have now is more traditional and less likely to look dated after a couple years. I think it also fits nicely in your vision.

    I think your first dress totally fits with your vision.

    The dres you have looks very much like the one on your inspiration board!! I would keep it. Have you seen this thread? It might help.

    I agree with PPs, I think your first dress has simpler lines and it is still in line with your inspirational dress.

    I know majority of people here all have dress regrets (that’s why I stopped watching Say Yes to the Dress and any other dress pictures after I purchased mine haha).

    I think your dress right now works fine, but of coz there are always a better dress out there.  However, I would highly suggest before you start shopping for another dress, see what kind of budget you have for a wedding gown first.  Wedding is not cheap and you never know how much you end up spending on other things.  Looks like you still have time to decide to start looking on second gown. 

    Good luck!

    I really love your dress I think you look stunning.

    To be honest that dress you shared I have seen and tried on in person and it wasn’t my favorite. The material is also very shiny and much thinner than I had anticipated.
