@katehh08:  I think you look lovely in your dress.  The hem is very unique, and I like that a lot, much more unique than the other dress you posted.  I think having the bust taken in will make it look perfect.

And you’re right, it actually isn’t the most important decision you will ever make in your life.  I think you made a great decision already and you will look fabulous on your big day!

On your wedding day, all people are going to see is a beautiful bride. They won’t be scrutinizing your dress for flaws like a seamstress would. People who aren’t in bride mode like we are won’t be looking at the seams or thinking about what other dresses you could have worn. I attended a friend’s wedding shortly before I got engaged and I can’t honestly tell you I remember anything about her dress except that it was white and strapless. 🙂 

There must have been a reason why you chose this first dress originally and didn’t choose this other dress. I think you’ll be fine if you stick with your etsy dress. You’re only going to wear this dress for a few hours, so don’t turn it into a bigger deal than it really is.

i had major dress regret right before the wedding.  I had my bridal portraits done and felt great then when I went in for my last fitting, I was devastated.  When you’re hair and make-up are all done, it makes you dress 100000 times more amazing.  

You’re going to look beautiful and you picked that dress for a reason.  Don’t worry!!

Can I suggest you have the seamstress make your dress a sweetheart neckline ? It looks lovely on you in second dress

I’d keep the dress you have. The only thing I like better about the first one is the hem, and if  you decided it’s the sweetheart you liked about it, you could get your dress made into a sweetheart for not too much money, I’d think. They’re both quite flattering.

@katehh08:  I doubt it’s too late- call the tailor and ask him!

@katehh08:  You should ask them if they can do it if you want it done.  If your wedding is in mid april then the seamstress has it for 6 more weeks.  A good seamstress can alter that neckline in like an hour probably.  I’ll bet they’d do it.  You could also ask to come visit your dress and try it on again.

To be brutally honest, I prefer the dress you tried on at the bridal salon. It’s beautiful and romantic. But it’s personal preference really – I prefer lace dresses to satin, and I dislike pick-ups and ruching! I do agree that you should consider turning the neckline into a sweetheart – I don’t think it would take too long or cost too much?

As others have said, at the end of the day – it’s just a dress for one day. And people are going to be wowed by how beautiful and happy you look on the day, not analysing the details of your dress (as we tend to do as brides).

To be honest too, I also prefer the dress you fitted at the bridal salon.  Your figure is stunning in it and I like lace too.  It looks so perfect on you (and it wasn’t even alterated).  But with the alterations done on the dress you purchased this might be a different picture.  I also would have the neckline made into a sweetheart; that makes you look lighter on the bust line.

People won’t see both dresses, but will only see you in your dress, so they can’t compare.

I also thinki making your dress a sweetheart neckline would be awesome! This dress immediately reminded me of Mikaella 1406- a very popular dress! With a sweetheart neckline, maybe even a sash wit a little bling, hair, makeup and a huge smile (you look so unthrilled in your pic!) you will look gorgeous! Alterations aren’t too late- I’m getting married just after you, my dress isn’t going to arrive in the shop until beginning of April and all alterations will be done in a week!
