    You are absolutely glowing in the last dress! It really compliments your shape. Even with alterations, I’m not sure your original dress would compare. Are you able to get some money towards a new dress (if you choose to) if you return the original one?

    I voted for the 3rd dress because you’re face seems to have lit up in the dress.  But the 2nd or 3rd were my favorite (I’m partial to lace though) I say if you feel the current dress no longer fits your wedding style you’re looking for AND you can afford a new dress than buy a new dress. 

    I say this because I also bought a dress that I loved and after pushing the wedding back and (stupidly) looking at other dresses I fell in love with a lace dress also.  So I am waiting until the date gets closer so I can really decide if I want to buy a new dress or will use the dress I bought.

    Since you’re wedding is much sooner than mine.  I say go with what you’ll be happiest with.  If you think you’re dress is one of your top priorities and you can’t live without a different dress/ or hyperventilate thinking that maybe your current dress will be ruined than splurge for a second dress and sell the first one to make up the difference.

    Good luck.  And just so you know they all looked beautiful on you!

    The Allure 8917 looks amazing!  Salons say you can typically alter within 2 sizes and be okay.  Anything more is a crapshoot.  So if you are going from a 12 to a 6 (or who knows what size next year), you should probably just try to get a new dress because you might be spending more money to fix it than it’s worth.

    Can you try to sell it on one of those wedding dress sites, on here, or even on ebay??  Maybe someone can buy it and you can put money towards that.  Or, maybe the dress shop could help you by trying to sell it to someone there that might be looking for a deal?  I think that you should go for a different dress….you just look so happy in them!

    I would sell the old dress and get a new one in your size.  I think you will spend a fortune in alterations and Im not sure if they could make it that much smaller.  You have plenty of time to sell your old dress and still order a new one.  Congrats on the weight loss.

    All of these dresses are beautiful, but my favorite is definitely the second. If you love a new dress better go for it (used or brand new) because you totally earned it, but it really depends on what look you want.

    I like dress 2 the best as a personal choice, but your face in dress 3 says it all – you are beaming! And you look gorgeous in both, you can’t lose 🙂
