Like many a bride on this site, I am a two dress bride. Technically. I don’t own two yet, but I purchased one dress and have fallen in love with another. The issue is that my friends and fiance are all in favor of the first dress! I know it’s my wedding and all that, but I’m so torn between a dress that is fantastically flattering that everyone loves, or a dress that’s a bit more my taste and I’m kind of alone (and it’s also probably less flattering.) HELP!!!
I tried on probably 20 or 25 dresses before I purchased the dress below. I went to the running of the brides, and I found this gorgeous beaded a-line gown. It’s very flattering and my friends LOVED it. Honestly, so did everyone else – I kept having to hide it from other brides who wanted it! So after much diliberation and oohing and ahing from my friends and strangers, I bought this beaded dress:
The next day (yes of course it had to be the next day,) I tried on this gorgeous dress from White House Black Market. It’s so classic and elegant and I loved it. But of course I already have a dress. I’ve shown all my friends pictures and basically everyone loves the first dress. Should I just go with the dress that’s gorgeous and more flattering?

OMG I love your 1st dress soooo much! The train! The beading! So classy!
I’m not a fan of the shape of the 2nd one but it’s your choice and in the end you’ll look great and feel great and everyone else will agree on your wedding day!
Oh and I love WHBM!

I agree with @HappilyEverAfter54:
that no matter what you choose, you will look fab and everyone will see that.
With that said, I really do prefer the first one though.

The 2nd is cute… but the first is incredibly stunning and SO flattering! Ultimately – it’s up to you, but that first one is amazing.

Gosh, you know, I love this second dress! That being said, you look phenomenal in the 1st dress, and it’s just so much more unique. The second dress looks a lot like a lot of other girls’ dresses. But honestly, you can’t go wrong either way!

I love them both, so I’m no help… but whatever you choose, they both look pretty!

I like both, but I don’t like the belt on the second dress. I think it would be more flattering without it.

Wel… why not both? Ceremony dress 1. Reception dress 2.

Oh wow, both dresses really do look beautiful on you, but I’m really sorry but I like the first one on you much more. I’m always an advocate more so to the bride’s choice but I think after seeing you in the first dress, the second one does look a little bland in comparison.
You said that the second dress is more you, why is that? Is it cause its less sparkly or cause of the sash? Maybe you could find a way to make the first dress more you. I just want you to be happy with your choice, but honestly if you love the second dress more, you should go with it.

I like your expression in the 2nd dress… makes me think that you prefer it over #1.

I love the first one – it is so classic, yet unique.
The second one is pretty too, but doesn’t seem to be anything special.

I think you need to wear which ever one YOU like best, not any of your friends, and not anyone on here.
You want to feel your best on your wedding day, so go with what makes you feel beautiful. I think both are amazing.

I agree with many on this post: it is your day and you should choose the dress you want. That being said, I like the 1st dress best. It flatters your figure, and looks soso stunning on you (wish I were blessed to look that good in a dress like that!). The 2nd dress is beautiful, but as my grandma would always say, “It doesn’t do anything for ya”. If it doesn’t enhance your beauty, then you are simply wearing a dress. Best wishes to you and whichever dress you wear, you are sure to be a stunning beauty on your wedding day!
