Honey, all that matters is if you LOVE it.  Do you love it? Did you have that reaction when you put it on? Unless your best friend just bought the same dress, who cares that it’s a popular style. You will still make it yours.

Love the first one!  Trust your gut and don’t change the dress unless you feel it isn’t right for you for some other reason.

I have never seen anyone with the first dress. And if you don’t care for lace that much don’t change it. I’m sure none of your guests browse WB as much as we do and your dress will be totally original to them.

Besides, on the wedding day you’ll want to be in love with your dress, not thinking “well, it’s not my favorite, but at least it’s different, right?”

I love the first dress. I tried it on and loved it on me too. I think it’s very popular for a reason… BUT I’ve never actually seen it on anyone at a wedding. Keep the first dress!!

Go back and try on your dress. You’ll fall in love again. After I bought my dress I had second thoughts. Until I went back and tried it on again. If you love lace you could try a veil with. Lace edge or maybe a lace bolero.

Remember most people at your wedding will not have looked at as many wedding dresses as you have.  They don’t know what’s popular on the weddinbee.  You love your dress because it makes you feel like the bride.  Remember know one else will look exactly like you in your dress.  So play with accessories and trial hair and makeup.  It’s a lovely dress and you will be amazing in it.

There are so many way to make a dress “your own” and if you loved it before, you’ll love it again.

Honestly- neither dress is particularly unique.   Who cares though?  You only get one wedding dress so you should choose the one you love.  A bride looks beautiful because she is confident, not because her dress is so completely unique

The good news is, your guests will likely not go to that many weddings this year, so they are unlikely to see any bride in the same dress. Plus, the fact that YOU are in it, with your special hair, makeup, and accessories, will make it unique to you. 


Plus, I love the dress you picked. Although I love lace, I actually like the one you picked more than the lace version you included.  If I were you, I’d keep the one you got 🙂
