Ok ladies. So I went through so much to finally get to try my dream dress on. I finally bought it. Yesterday I went for my first fitting. The lady was late. I was by myself and I just spent my time looking around the store. I saw a dress that is a style I had never tried on before. I put it on and it fit PERFECTLY. It was a little small (size 12…I am a 14) but still it felt so great. I loved having it on. So much that I didn’t want to take it off. When I put my dress on I wasn’t as impressed anymore. I feel like Karena Royalle is more “me”. I feel like it is more slimming on me, too. I want to call the salon and ask if I can exchange my Sabelle for Karena. 🙁 I am so confused because I LOVED Sabelle.
Please let me know which one you like more on me.
1st dress Karena: Royale is the dress I think I should get (Karena Royale)
2nd dress: Sabelle (my dress)

I personally like the first dress much better. While both dresses are beautiful the first one really flatters you.

I think the biggest difference is that your hips look slimmer in the Karena Royale. It accenuates your waist more. But the Sabelle looks good too! If I had to choose, I like the Karena Royale better.

When I tried on dresses, I found that I kept going back to the photos of the ones that were a size too small. They made me look tiny! But I couldn’t breath or move in any of them…one dress I even tried on again in the right size and couldn’t get over how differently I felt about it when it was the proper size.
The Sabelle looks like it could use a few alterations, maybe a bit more support for your bust, but it’s definitely a beautiful dress on you!!
Is there an option to exchange your dress in shop, since you haven’t started alterations?

The first dress is a lot more my style (it actually looks a LOT like my dress!) so I voted to change, but only if you can. If it’s going to be a big imposition financially, then keep your dress. Your dress is very grand and I’m sure you fell in love with it for a reason! A wedding gown is so personal, you should wear whatever you feel the most beautiful in.

I have to say that while you look lovely in both the 1st dress is STUNNING on you and just fits you perectly!

ps – is your hand photoshopped in the first pic or just at a funny angle? It looks like you have no fingers! 🙂

Oh boy. That must be hard. I feel emotionally Sabelle is your dress and you should keep it, rather then picking a dress that changed your mind in minutes. Your wedding is in like a month! I would stand by your first choice, you look fabulous in it. If its going to eat at you by not calling and finding if you can exchange, then do it, doesn’t hurt to ask! If they do you could always go back and decide. I think thats what you want to do by the sounds of it. Good luck with either choice!

I think you need to stick with YOUR dress! =) You look lovely!
And do you have a crinoline under there? My friend wore this dress (she was GORGEOUS) but it seemed to be a bit more full in the skirt!

#1 for SURE, all day long. You look so much taller, slimmer and proportional in it than the Sabelle.

I like the first dress, its very flattering.

I prefer dress #1 as well BUT how will you get it before your wedding?

I think you picked the sabelle for a reason, its got more drama to it. Yes the Karent shows your figure more and is more modern BUT I think its so different from your first choice that you may regret going with the karena and may wish you had stuck with the sabelle
