well can you afford to buy another dress? then what would you do with the first dress? think about that before trying another on because if you love the new one of course youre going to have to get it.

I personally believe the dress should match YOU and not your venue.  What can it hurt to try it on?  You’ll either love it enough to change your mind or it will solidify that your first dress is it.

I think dresses are a lot like boyfriends.  There are a lot out there worth dating/trying on/loving, but only one you’re going to end up walking down the aisle with.

if it hasnt been that long since youve bought your old dress and it hasnt been altered …DB can exchange the dress for you. thats what happened to me. I ordered a dress and liked it but not LOVE but then i found a dress i loved and they made sure to return the other dress and got me the dress I really wanted!!

I really wouldnt recommend looking at other dresses after youve found yours. (something I myself need to do) because I feel you most of the time will find something you love the same if not more and thats just nto a fun place to be in. 🙂

Both dresses are beautiful btw, but if your getting married at disneyland then the new dress would be amazing princess feel!

It doesn’t look like your original dress would wrinkle.  Would they even be able to order it and alter it in time? I second J.  If you really love the second dress take a close look at your budget and be realistic on how much you could get for your original dress.

Most importantly, you will look AMAZING on your wedding day, no matter which dress you wear.  (Especially if you have the bod to wear dress #1!!!)

I think there is such a thing for “the dress” for each wedding. You change your venue, your whole wedding changes. I know, I’m going through this right now–and my dress was the right one for my old venue and the wrong one for my new one!

If you can afford it, pick the dress that fits your venue, wedding and happiness best. Good luck!

Get the one you really love and sell the other one

It sounds like you can exchange without much hassle, so go for it if you want. But there is no such thing as “the dress.” In other words, you’re never going to find a dress you love so much that no other dress will appeal to you. Whether you exchange your dress or not, if you keep looking at new dresses, you’ll keep getting second thoughts. It doesn’t mean you made the wrong choice – you would look equally amazing in many dresses, but can only choose one.

no I don’t believe there is “THE” dress.  Many dresses can work!

I changed my mind after buying my first dress before our venue changed. I’m so glad I went with my gut feeling and took the plunge to go with another dress. It was totally the right decision and I have no regrets. If you seriously love the second dress (I adore it!!!) go for it!

I have seen a few brides in your first dress and it is pretty but personally I like the second one and I say try it on!
