I love the second one! I say go for it. Do what makes you feel great….and even if you can’t sell the first one, it’s less than a lot of women pay for one dress.

@dmcanespy: YES YES! Buy the 2nd one.  It looks beautiful on you.  I actually think that the 1st dress does nothing for your figure, and you look incredible in the 2nd one! Just like you said, you look 15 (maybe even 25) pounds lighter in the 2nd dress!

I like them both on you, however I think the first one would be more lovely if the top ruffle was removed. That way, it would elongate your body more like the 2nd dress seems to. Why don’t you maybe try that, and see if you like that look first? If that doesn’t prevail, then snatch up the 2nd dress? What do you have to lose? It might be an inexpensive fix, since you’re trying to keep your budget reasonable.

Good luck.

Oh yes the second one is much better! You can probably sell the 1st dress on ebay for the same price. I would sell it for $120 including shipping and then maybe you will get some bids. That way you won’t loose out much.

This second dress is beautiful!!!!!! I think its good that you already know what it looks like on your body.

I think that purchasing the second one would make you a very happy bride and wearing the other one would make you a very sad bride, so I think you should get the second one, if you can. I also think the second one is much more flattering on you.

Um, i’ll put monies from my piggybank to help you buy the 2nd one. You could totally make do with the 1st one, but if you can any way squeeze that 2nd one in, do it. The feeling you’ll get from not wearing that 1st one will be worth it alone! AND you’re drop-dead gorgeous in that 2nd one, I love it!

The second one is a lot better at giving you a figure and it also has a more classic feel. The first one just doesn’t seem to work, but I think it would look a lot better if it were tea length.

You look much better in the 2nd one, get the 2nd one. $99 isnt that big of a loss even if you dont sell it. If you told me you spent hundreds on the first one, id be concerned. Its your big day, you need to feel good.Tongue out

Dress #2 suits your body very nicely.   

Dress#1 is nice but if you cant sell it,  its is only $99 lost,  not too much,  and you could mayb e remove the top ruffle like a PP said,  or remove the bottom ruffle and have a short dress either for your reception,  or some other special occasion…
