So I bought my dress over a year ago..it was the 2nd dress I tried on.I was Really in love with it when I got it. It’s a really pretty all over Lace Paloma Blanca (see below)
The problem is, I don’t get that “Aahhh” anymore… I don’t really even feel that “dressy” in it..
so this is what I am thinking..
Buy a sample ballgown dress for cheap, make the grand enterance in that..then change into my simple Paloma blanca for the reception (it doesn’t have much of a train, and would be pretty simple to walk around, dance in)
Do you guys think I’m crazy? Should I just wear my Paloma blanca? what are your thoughts?
Here is one of the bridesmaids dresses, below is the dress I already own..and the picture below is the dress I am thinking about buying…

I think the Paloma Blanca is absolutely gorgeous and it looks great on you!
However, if you’re not feeling it & getting another dress is within your budget, then why not?

If you want two, and can afford it, then go for it. I think the one you already have looks great on you! But if you want two, then have two – it’s your one shot to be the bride!

Will it feel all dressed up with the veil and jewelry and everything? i just feel like replacing a wedding dress can be a waste of money. Everyone has second doubts about their dress (I did!) but I think i would have felt silly afterwards, spending another thousand or so, when in hindsight, the first dress just needed to be put on with all the bells and whistles.
But hey, i know a girl who had 3 wedding dresses…=]

I really love the Paloma Blanca dress! I say keep it, wear it all day/night long, and spend your money elsewhere!

I had lots of dress doubts and they were justified as I received my dress and not happy with it at all. I should’ve listened to my gut all along and bought a second dress months ago. I feel bad wasting it so I’m probably going to wear it for the reception, but probably going to wear a different dress I feel better in for the ceremony and most importantly for the pics below. I spent $4000 on the photog and if I hate looking at those photos the rest of my life that is a bigger waste of money than buying a second dress. So, I voted for wear both!

The Paloma Blanca dress looks GORGEOUS on you, and I think it will be a grand entrance when you have that on, since it’s so perfect. The ballgown is kind of boring…

I voted for the ballgown before I knew there were photos. I like them both. I was voting for the ballgown assuming that one was simple… as in a sheath and the other was grand. But both choices are lovely. I wouldn’t go with an extra gown the lace gown is lovely and it’s the style of your choice. I love the ballgown too… but I guess I’d pick my absolute favorite dress to wear and save the other styles for other occasions…

Go with what you want!! However, keep in mind that the more brides look/try on their dresses, the more they get doubts. If you loved it at first, you still do…you are just second guessing yourself.

Honestly I love the Paloma Blanca, maybe you could try and dress it up a bit more with statement earings, bracelet, hair piece and or veil, etc. Its very dressy in my opinion!
Edit: I just took another look at the veil your wearing you could DEF dress that up a bit with some sparkle or lace edging and new veil would def be less then a new dress.

i agree with the others….if u want 2…go for it! the ballgown would be gorgeous for the ceremony, and the other for the reception!
5% of all brides are a “2 gown” bride….from my latest Brides magazine 😉
be in the minority!
