You need to be in love with it, it is your wedding dress!

If the store won’t take it back to re sell it, maybe you can sell it in a classifieds. There are so many wedding websites that sell used wedding items, you could def. get some money for it somehow.

And congrats on your new body! Nothing like a wedding to inspire us to get in shape. Now go find a dress that you are in love with and will flatter your new shape!

Change it!  Alterations could be as much or more than you paid, and it sounds like you have a source of quality used dresses.

Have you considered trying to sell the one you have on craiglist or something, so you get more from it to put towards a new one?

I say change the dress as well!

Here are 2 reasons to switch:

1. You’ve worked so hard to improve your physique, so you should feel great in what you wear on your wedding day.

2. Your original dress was such a great price that even if you weren’t able to get any money back for it, the amount lost is minimal compared to how much better you’d feel in a dress that actually fits you (in size and style). (After all, some people pay double that for alterations alone!)

It sounds like your mind is made up anyway, and you’re concerned about what others will say. In the end, this is a *major* part of your big day and I’m sure those around you will want you to do what makes you happy.
