2 months before the wedding and I fall head over heels in love with this Mia Solano dress. I’ve always been a little sketchy about the dress I bought because it really doesn’t fit my personality (thought it is very pretty!) and I was rushed into buying it when the lady at the dress store found out it was only a 9 month engagement. She has offered me a possible solution, but I wanted to see what others thought: If you were looking for something a little different from the norm, but still classic, and within a reasonable budget (unfortunately the Vera Wang Deirdre that I loved was waaay to expensive!), would you go for:
The dress I bought: (with crystal beaded straps – I flat out refuse to wear strapless because I’d fidget all night!)
The dress I am currently obsessed with:

I’m partial to lace, and I think the shape of the lace dress is more “classic.” However, 2 months out seems like a lot could go wrong with getting a new dress ordered and altered, so that would make me nervous. Also, which dress is more flattering to you, and which goes best with the rest of your wedding? Both are beautiful, so I think either choice will look lovely. Good luck!

I actually like the original dress better. And I agree that getting a button-up dress that is form-fitting like that altered to fit you perfectly probably won’t give you much time for changes if they aren’t done perfectly the first time, so you might have to pay for the rush alterations. But your call, they’re both beautiful.

Wow they are completely different styles!! I would go with the one you love and the one that best fits your personality and the look you’re going for on your wedding day.
