    I love #1!  It is pretty, has lovely detail but not too intricate that they won’t be able to replicate it, and I bet it would look AMAZING on you 🙂

    I am not keen on your first dress, not sure about the black colour going through it. Sorry, it’s just my opinion, don’t mean to be horrible 🙂

    Maybe you could sell it on Ebay? You might get  fair amount of money for it because it’s unworn.

    As for the others, I really love them all, but my favourite is dress 1, it is stunning and would look fantastic on you! I think you should go for it, as it’s important to have a dress you’ve fallen in love with and makes you feel like a princess!

    Maybe wear a fuller underskirt with it if you want to make it really puff out to be more like Belle?

    I personally am not a fan of the color, but since you have said over and over that you love it and can’t afford a second one, you should just stop looking and go with your original! You will look beautiful regardless. If you really do love it, it doesn’t matter if its not springy IMO.

    I think you’re just trying to fill the belle void with something else that isn’t the same, so you still won’t be happy. Put the money toward something more useful.

    @hiroshymatetrastar:  It really *doesn’t* fit the season….

    What about covering up the purple with a blush color? Or just making it white? You could put lace applique over the white to make it less plain, or even beading.

    @hiroshymatetrastar:  I get what you’re saying but you’re totally going in circles here. If you can’t afford one of the new ones, it’s a moot point (like a cow’s opinion–friends anyone?). Don’t torture yourself!

    @hiroshymatetrastar:  I don’t know what you mean. Your original dress is very regal looking. And I do say “wow” when I look at the picture. The purple details give it an original look as well. I hope you keep it and wear it on your wedding day!

    I don’t think it is unsummery either.

    FYI — Dress regret is usually caused by simply looking at other wedding dresses after you’ve ordered your own (grass is greener syndrome)!

    @hiroshymatetrastar:  Oh no, how much would you lose if you decided on dress number 1 instead then? Depends if you think it’s worthwhile. Would the shop let you have a refund, or partial refund? Or even an exchange for something else similar to Belle? This might be a long shot, but I know different shops have differnt rule so you never know.

    Sorry for getting the colour mixed up on the original dress by the way, I probably didn’t look at it properly, my eyesight is pretty bad haha!
