    Stick with the original dress, it’s 100% better than the second. Don’t worry about your mother, can’t please everyone 🙂

    I had to vote “other” because I like dress two okay, but I love dress one.

    I have a feeling sitting down in dress 2 would be awkward… Dress number one is awesome! Dress number 2 is very eccentric. It is beautiful though.

    It’s not that I don’t like the second dress, but I just love the first dress on you! It’s so gorgeous!

    You look stunning in your first dress. I think you should wear what you want. My mother said she flat out hated the one dress I really loved too. She then proceeded to send me email after email with links to dresses she loved–I hated all of them. My mother doesn’t have good taste, so I’m basically ignoring her suggestions. Everyone else I sent a picture of myself wearing the dress to loved it and thought she was crazy.

    I really like your original dress!  Not a fan of the second one to be honest 🙂  Your mom doesn’t know what she’s talking about!

    Your first dress is gorgeous! And looks really great on you.

    That second one is a hot mess, imo. It reminds me of Kleenex with dust bunnies. Again, just my opinion, but it seems like the sort of thing that you’d see your pictures in ten years and ask “What was I THINKING?”

    For the record, when I got my dress in, and took it out of the bag to show my mom, she just paused for a few minutes, and then said “Hmm…..”.

    I know how it is… I bought a second dress because my first one everyone RAVED about it, and I realized I didnt like it as much as everyone else. After getting my second, my mom told me she was glad because she hated the first!! Thank goodness I changed my mind, but really!! She acted as if she loved it, and thats why I bought it (sadly)

    I love your first though!! The second looks like you have to see the actual person in it. If you can pull it off, then I hope you get it!! I dont think it looks very flattering on the model, she is too stickly and not enough curves (or really a personality in the pic) to pull it off, so even if you dont get it, take pics so we can see what its really supposed to look like!

    I voted that I don’t like either dress, but after seeing your original dress on you I like it a lot better. It is flattering on you and really seems to work. You loved your dress, that’s why you bought it, right? I say stick with it.

    Please keep your first dress, it is beautiful and you look just amazing in it! Your mother will love you in it as well when you are all done up for your wedding day.

    I said I didn’t like both, but that’s just my taste. I find both too ‘trendy’ and am thinking, if it were me, I wouldn’t want to look back 10-20 years from now and think it looks dumb (I’m sure my mom thought her puffy sleeves was a hit when she got married).
