Tell me these dresses are very similar (and stop my mounting dress regret)

mikesgirl123 :  I mean, the lace marry dress has sleeves but if I were you I would sit tight. They’re both lace and similar shapes. Lace marry has a good reputation and you haven’t even seen what it looks like on. On top of that you’ve already paid for it! Unless this dress is a ridiculous screaming deal I would just wait until you get your dress in ๐Ÿ™‚

It’s hard to judge without seeing the second dress on you but I’d pass on the first one, honestly. Your body type reminds me of my cousin’s and her signature look is a bateau neckline like on the dress you ordered. I think you’ll like it better, and if you don’t, I’m sure taking in a trumpet skirt to make it into a mermaid won’t be a difficult alteration.

+1 for the previous comment. Just wait until you get your dress to assess things. I’m in the same boat as you, as I’m having a dress made as well. I was at a bhldn shop the other day feeling all types of regret. But I decided to take the same advice I’m giving you: muster up all the positive energy and patience you can, and wait it out. Plus, the dress you tried on isn’t anything spectacular. You can find a similar dress very easily later on if you need to.

I much prefer the neckline and sleeves on the one you’ve ordered.

No point buying a smaple from a sample sale unless it actually fits. I say sit tight and wait for Lace Marry magic to happen. Make sure you post your Lace Marry dress for all of to admire.

I actually think the Lace Marry one is nicer. It’s gorgeous!

if you told me the second dress was just the first with a lake topper, I’d be like “yeah no duh”.

The one you ordered is much prettier than the one without sleeves.

Ohhhhh I love the one you ordered! It’s different and has a little bit of a retro-y vibe. Please post when you get the etsy one!!

If you’ve recently ordered and they haven’t begun work on it yet, you could always ask them to change the skirt shape back ๐Ÿ™‚ maybe that’ll make you feel better.

I really love the one you ordered! I think it is much more interesting and unique than the one you tried on, sit tight ๐Ÿ™‚ 

I also ordered my dress from Etsy and drove myself crazy waiting. When it arrived it was the most beautiful dress I have ever tried on, and I couldn’t be happier with it! Four months to the wedding now and no dress regret.
