After agonizing about which dress to pick and then finally having the courage to pick and buy my choice, I am now second guessing it 🙁 See, from the start, I was always looking for a dress with lace that is more fitted to the body. Now, I ended up choosing a dress without any lace, but with ruffles, which I didn’t care for before, that is an A-line but poofy like a ball gown, and was over my budget, but still a good deal.
Here’s the dress I got:
This is with a simpler skirt during the ceremony as compromise for my mom
But now, since I haven’t seen my dress in a couple of weeks, I’ve started thinking about lace dresses again. It didn’t help that a lot of the bees here have really gorgeous dresses – DRESS ENVY!! So… I went out yesterday and tried on a couple of lace dresses that I thought looked more bridal than what I had picked out. AND they’re much more affordable! Tell me bees, is this really just dress envy or do you think I should get myself a lace dress?
Here are lace dress pics:

I think the fuller skirt looks better on you and personally I LOVE your original dress. It is absolutely stunning!!! And once it fits you properly and you can see the whole picture I think you will be very happy with it!!

I actually love the dress you got! But I do prefer it with the more simple skirt, I just like the pairing of the intricate top with the clean slate of the skirt, it looks more modern to me.

I like the dress you have with the simple skirt as well.

Just my two cents: the lace dresses are pretty, but your dress is awesome. I’m not very into dramatic texture, but I love that.

The dress you got is so much more unique! It’s really lovely on you; I wouldn’t second-guess it.

I think you shouldn’t have any dress regret. The one you already got looks great!

I absolutely love the dress you picked with the simplier skirt. I would stay with the original, but if you feel that strongly about the lace dress, it’s your choice.

I think the first dress is stunning on you (I can’t even decide which skirt I like better), while the lace dresses are just okay. They might look more “bridal” on the hanger, but that first dress makes YOU look like a gorgeous bride.

You look amazing in the dress you already have. Stunning — wait until your dress comes in and be prepared to fall in love all over again. <3

The first dress is wayyyyyyyyyyyyy nicer and you look stunning in it!!! The first skirt is way nicer too. It really makes the dress!
You don’t wear the dress, the dress wears you! 😉

I love your original dress and I’m not big on that texture you have on the skirt part, but believe it or not I actually really like it on the dress as well as the shirt you compromised with your mom for. The lace dress is very pretty, but nothing special at all.

I agree that your original dress is much more unique and flattering on you. People’s jaws will be dropping when they see you in the Martina Liana!

I LOVE both versions of the dress you have. Gorgeous gorgeous. The other one is pretty, but eh, not in comparison 🙂 Don’t worry. You’ll love it when you try it again, I’m sure. Go read the before/after dress thread and see how much more amazing they look day-of!
