    I really love the first dress.  I think the second dress might be too much going on on the bottom for your small frame.  I think you look gorgeous in that first dress!

    Your first dress is gorgeous! Try to remember why you picked it and stop looking at new dresses! The pics from the bridal salon never do the dress justice and when you look at them later it makes you feel bad you bought the dress. Trust your decision! You will look beautiful the day of your wedding!

    I’m going to be honest. I do not care for your dress at all. You have a gorgeous figure and I feel like the dress is wearing you instead of you wearing the dress. I would keep looking.

    FWIW I had dress regret. Most bees told me to stick with my original. I didn’t and I am extremely happy I changed. Only you know what is right for you. I just know for myself, once I have a negative feeling about clothing I can’t wear it again because I am no longer confident in it.

    I really like the first dress!!  It stands out more to me than the second one does…I guess I mean it looks more unique and memorable.  It looks gorgeous on you as well!

    First, I have two questions — how tall are you, and how much money have you committed toward the dress you’ve purchased? You don’t have to give an actual number, but what I’m really asking is, can you easily afford to lose the money you’ve already paid/committed for the first gown and still purchase the second dress?

    I also do not care for the first dress.  The top is gorgeous but the bottom has way too much going on for your small frame.  The second dress is beautiful and I think it will be much more flattering for you!

    @raisedonrobbery:  Given that you are able to exchange your dress for a new one (that is both very rare and extremely wonderful, by the way!!), I am going to tell you that I agree with

    MrsElopement:, and I think you should look for a new dress.

    However, because you are only 5’2″, I am not sure if your dream dress (is that an Enzoani?) will actually work for you. Even if it does not, however, there is no reason why you cannot find a lace dress that has many of the same features of the dress you love but without the severe mermaid shape. As

    @Ms.GoodEarth: implies, that gown is not best worn by a shorter bride due to the fact that there needs to be enough room to show that dramatic flare without a lot of alterations/hemming. However, it’s possible that the designer could alter the proportions when making the dress for you — I don’t know.  

    Either way, since the store is essentially allowing you to have another shot at purchasing, I encourage you to keep looking for a dress that you absolutely love!

    Why don’t you try the second one on? It’s pretty and I love it and think you have an awesome figure, but I also think you won’t love it one. Can you try it on to be sure you love it?

    The first dress … I’m sorry.. but I don’t find it flatters your figure at all.  I do not like it. It looks like two completely different dresses with the bottom of one just wrapped around you. 🙁

    The second dress is STUNNING!!

    I’m not particularly fond of the visible boning in the bodice of your first dress mixed in with the satin of the bottom. I think it looks disjointed. I love the second dress, I’m sure it would look great on you.
