I bought my dress at David’s Bridal in January. I didn’t even really want to buy one that day but got wrapped up in the hoopla and excitement of having my friends and mom there with me and ended up buying the second one i tried on!
here is the dress I bought:
I always wanted something lacey but also wanted some bling and a corset back. This one didn’t have a corset back, but I thought this will do and bought it anyways.
I made the mistake of continuing to look on the DB website and found a dress that has (what looks like) the same lace pattern, but I like this style more!! and it has the corset i originally wanted.
I really wish my consultant would have brought this one over to me to try on, and am having serious dress regret. Its almost all I can think of! AHH. But I know I cannot afford to buy a second dress unless they took it as an exchange (dresses are the same price)
What do u think? should I stick with the one I have? I feel like I would always be wondering about the other dress…

I like your current dress and I think you look great in it. You can always dress it up with a brooch or some sparkly earrings.

it’s worth it to go, ask, and try it on if they say that they will exchange it for you. You might not like it on anyway!

If you return it don’t you get most of your money back ? (i know they deduct a percentage though don’t remember how much) . Why not just call or go and see if you can exchange it?

Why don’t you try on that dress, and see if you like it on you. Then you can compare the phtotos side-by-side to get a more accurate picture of what your vision is.
Also, it can’t hurt to see if they’ll let you exchange your current dress if you really are head-over-heels for the other one.
I think trying both on and then taking a step back to ruminate a bit is the key to you not having dress regret later on (for whichever dress you don’t end up wearing).
*For what it’s worth, the dress you want is gorgeous. The jeweled detail on your current dress, although lovely, is awkwardly pointing to your lady bits (NAGL).

I think the one you picked is very pretty, but my understanding is that David’s actually has a more liberal return/exchange policy than a lot of other dress shops. I think it can’t hurt to inquire what the situation would be if you DID exchange the dress, and if it’s an amount that’s doable, then try on the dress. If not, stay away from it.

I say go ahead and try it. Best case scenario you don’t love it and keep your original, or worst case, you love the other dress more and want to get it. Also, since the dresses are from the same store they may be ok to do an exchange. I bought my dress from David’s also but I’m not so sure about their exchange policy (seems there’s a lot of varying answers depending on the scenario), but I hope they make it work for you if you go that route!

Go try it on. Maybe you won’t like it and it will be moot. If you do like it, then maybe you can persuade them to allow you an exchange. If they refuse to do an exchange, you have plenty of time to try to sell your old dress.
Incidentally, I did try on that second dress you’re thinking about. From what I can tell from your photo, I would say the lace pattern is different than your original dress’s pattern, but it’s still a very nice dress and worth trying on if you think you want a fitted silhouette like that.
