I ordered and purchased my dress in December to make sure it had time to come in and for the alterations to be done. I was torn between two dresses, but ended up picking the more traditional, formal gown with a train over a more modern train-less option.
Now that the dress has come in, I still love it but I am having second thoughts. I feel like I look good in both gowns, but the one I didn’t buy is still on my mind. I always second-guess myself, thinking I made the wrong choice but I do still have time to order the other dress and sell my first one on ebay. So, ladies, tell me, which dress looks better on me? Am I crazy? Here is the one that I bought (strapless) and a photo of the one I didn’t (halter):
Did I make the wrong choice?

I love both dresses and see how you are torn but I think the first dress looks beautiful on you.

I definitely think that the dress you ordered is gorgeous on you—if you’re comfortable in it, then I would just stop worrying! 😉 You’ll look fab!

I think you made the right choice! Although both look fabulous on you, the first dress (strapless) is just so much prettier (imo). I think the beading on the halter straps of the second dress is too busy. The first dress looks more timeless.

@kelsidawn … you’re right! It is very common for brides to second guess their dress. That was what my very first post on here was about (and many others)! It’s so hard to make a decision (and stick with it) when there are so many pretty dresses out there. Just remember that you picked your dress for a reason. Think about how you felt when you had it on. The smile on your face in those pics says it all!! I think the dress you chose looks beautiful on you! Great choice! Best of luck! 🙂

Thanks a lot ladies, you are really helping to put my worries at ease. I think the strapless will be more comfy, anyway. The sample I had on of the halter was too small, so I was unable to do the sit-test (which is important in a trumpet gown). Thanks so much for your support!

You definitely made the right choice in my opinion! 🙂

I did the same thing with my dress! I was so upset for the longest time, but when I tried it on again I remebered why I fell in love with it.
You look great in both dresses so you couldn’t have gone wrong either way. The dress you bought is beautiful 🙂

No way, the one you purchased looks so wonderful on you! Don’t get me wrong, they are both beautiful gowns, but the original def gives you that wow factor.

Good choice! You look great in both but I think your dress is a little more flattering!

Dont even second guess yourself!!!!!!! The first dress is absolutely gorgeous on you, I LOVE that style of dress, and it looks amazing on you. I dont like halter dresses anyway, but really, you made the best choice!!!
