Are the sashes removable? Because if so, I think the sash on the second could be a lot of what you like. It’s gorgeous. If you could have that sash on your current dress…would that change your mind?

They are both beautiful dresses. Purely objectively, I do like the second one a tad better. But I think it’s the sash.

So sorry to hear about your loss.  I think both of the dresses are beautiful and you should just go with your instincts.  If you have negative feelings tied to the original dress, then go with the second dress.  (I do like the fit and flare shape of the second dress a little better.)

 

These kinds of situations are complicated and I think the best option is to go with whichever dress makes you the happiest.

So sorry to hear about your loss. On the plus side, you are marrying your partner and have a lot to look forward to! I think your attempt to rush back into wedding planning is probably a need to move on. However, I see very little difference between the two dresses so I think you should stick with the one you bought! I can understand the need to want to change something, when everything else feels out of your control. But it would just be more time and hassel than anything else. Rest easy.

so sorry for your loss… ๐Ÿ™ 

if i had to pick, i’d definitely stay with the one you already bought! i love the skirt better–it’s flowy and romantic! the other one seems to scoop under the model’s butt, and i think the one you have just accentuates the right places of the body better…. 

the sash on the first dress might be just tacked on there with a few stitches (mine was on my dress, though it wasn’t this dress)…. if so, it’d be easy to remove it and go for a wider one that sits more along the natural waist! ๐Ÿ™‚ 

no matter what, they are both gorgeous dresses! you’ll look awesome in either! ๐Ÿ™‚ keep us posted about which one you ultimately choose!

I’m so sorry about your loss.

 

Both are beautiful, and I think you have to go with your gut.  If you want the second dress, I say go for it and list the first dress for sale.  Lots of people have success with that (I did!).  Good luck!

@cldaughe:  I am sorry for your loss.  I think you look great in the original dress, and just my humble opinion,  I think the dresses with the 3D flowers are going to look dated in the future, and I really, really like the bottom lace of the first dress.

First off, I am very sorry about what happened.

As for the dress, I like your first one more, and I think they’re similar enough that it’s not worth changing. If you sell your dress it will almost definately be at a loss of more than $200. I think lace is great for a garden wedding, and that heavily textured gowns like the new one are more of a passing trend, if that’s something that matters to you, and a lot of times seem to “wear you” instead of you wearing it. Maybe you could try on your dress with a wide belt to make it more similar?
