Well, I thought I wanted the big gown. 

 

But we decided to say to heck with the big wedding…

So, I found this one on sale instead. 🙂

MrsDamiani:  Yes, those look very similar! Thank you so much for the recommendations. Fortunately, I was able to change my order. The bridal shop was VERY understanding. Unfortunately, they don’t carry Essense of Australia or Stella York. Their collections include David Tutera, Alfred Angelo, Watters, and Justin Alexander. I actually have narrowed it down to 2 different Justin Alexander Dresses (a little more expensive, but trying to talk down the price).

The silk one looks a lot better in person and in my size (the sample was 6 sizes too big). But I’m giving myself time to think before I make a final decision.

CakeSniffer:  Since you were so value concious maybe you could splurge a bit on a gorgeous veil or headpiece 🙂 That’s what I did.

I think the dresses you posted all have an archicitectural quality that your dress doesn’t have when it’s not been steamed or hiked up on you or photographed with good posture/confidence. I think your dress is almost identical to the second one you’ve posted, yours just needs to perk up a bit.

skylar84:  I love your dress, and I agree with PP, once it is steamed and bustled, it will look just like the other ones. 

Have you considered tossing a skirt underneath and adding some poof? That seems to be the only major difference in the dresses.

Yes,  crazy person (lol) crazy because   your  actual dresss is easily   the equal, or better of the pics posted. It’s  just  as pps have said, that yours needs steaming and for you to stand up straight young lady! ! Seriously,  it is stunning and suits you perfectly .

CakeSniffer:  Your dress looks so much better, much more elegant. It suits you so much better than the $1000 dress. Had to double check so that I don’t confuse both dresses. You did a great job saying goodbye to the expensive dress 🙂

Zimtstern:  Aww, thanks! Considering how our finances have gone in the past few months, it’s for the best that I didn’t overspend. Your kind words about my bargain dress make me feel even better about that choice!
