    I think the first dress is classic and figure flattering.  If you can get a good price, I think you could get the second one as a second dress, but I do think it may hurt your nans feelings if you sell the first dress.

    Looove the second one but you have to weigh your feelings of happiness about the second dress and possible hurting your nan’s feeling when you sell the first.

    It’s YOUR day and YOU need to be happy. Your Nannah will understand. But yes talk to her about it first before you do anything. Best of luck.

    If your wedding is infact April 2013, I say WAIT a while to decide for sure, look around, take your time.  Otherwise, you will drive yourself crazy over the next year. 🙂

    have you tried on the second one?  Thats really the first step here…  I was obsessed with keyhole lace gowns until I tried one on and looked like a football player (hello broad shoulders from swimming…).  I really think you should try it on first before you think about selling your other dress.

    Don’t you dare hurt your sweet grandmother’s feelings! Stick with the first dress– the one bought for you out of love. 

    I’d stop looking at dresses at this point and focus on other aspects of the wedding. Even if you do dump it for the 2nd dress, there are always going to be other, better dresses if you keep looking.

    Definitely try the second dress on before you decide to even sell your first. You already love how the  second one looks in the pictures, but you need to love how you look and feel in it. It’s not worth the effort to sell the first dress if you’re not sure that the second one is THE dress. If it were my family, my grandma wouldn’t care if I sold the dress. She would want me to be happy and love what I’m wearing. My mom actually bought my first dress in the same situation: random shopping trip with mom only and the dress was an amazing price. My mom bought it for me. I then continued to try on more dresses (knowing that I could sell the first one if I found a better one). I found a second dress (again, only my mom was with me) and am trying to sell the first. Mom’s feelings are not hurt at all!

    TRY THE SECOND DRESS ON before making a decision!!!!!

    Yes I too think you should try the dress on before thinking about it. you may hate it on your and realize the first one was better all along. If you continue to just stare at the picture, you’re going to make yourself hate the first one. 

    If you love it, I don’t think your nana will mind at all ( why would she? She’s not the one wearing it, I’m sure she just wants you to have your favorite dress)

    I love the 2nd dress. It’s your day and you should wear the dress that makes you the happiest.

    Before you buy it, talk to your nan. Tell her that you appreciate the gift (and offer to pay her back) but that your heart is set on another dress. I’m sure she will understand.
