    No, stick with dress 1!

    Definitely, it's just *that* much more special!

    I think your original dress is gorgeous, and perfect for an orchard wedding so I voted for it… however, you seem pretty sold on the second dress, so go with whatever you feel best in!

    The original dress is goregous however you seemed sold on the second dress. I agree with you it highlights waist and fits you beautifully. I say if it is in your budget and you really want it, get the second dress! It is stunning! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Hello, my friend. The only reason I voted for dress number 2 is this: the way you obviously feel. All the dresses you posted pictures of look absolutely wonderful on you. But this is a once-in-a-lifetime event and you want to FEEL a certain way. The way a dress looks is a matter of perspective and taste. So it doesn’t boil down to just appearances. You want to feel special, beautiful, a certain way. After all, a wedding is about feelings more than it is looks. If dress 1 isn’t doing it for you, do not feel guilty about ditching it. You could also consider using it in other ways: a formal gown for a cruise, your honeymoon, or gala dinner (if you go to those sorts of things…you never know); a second dress for your reception; a backup dress in case something “happens” to your first one (we’ve all heard stories from stains to tears); a dress to use in an out-of-the-box wedding photo shoot after the big day (ones that involve you submerging yourself in water, for instance)…the possibilities are there. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I didn’t read any of your descriptions and immediately fell in love with the second one on you. It’s gorgeous!

    If you looove the second dress and you only paid $230 for the first one, it’s no question! I think they both look amazing on you but if you love dress 2 get it!

    Story of my life, literally. Same thing happened to me: I went shopping with my Future Sister-In-Law and found the one, it was $300 and I bought it. Just last week, as I was scanning through weddingbee and I saw so many gorgeous, glamourous gowns that I just wasn’t happy with mine anymore. I was hating it, hating that I had made the decision so quickly. Soooo I posted it on the ‘bee and I got some amazing, supportive feedback from the other girls. One of them, though, told me and showed me it was actually a Mori Lee bridesmaid dress. I was kinda devastated, and appaled that the store never mentioned that! Anyway, this girl’s advice to me was: does it matter? So after all that, I decided to try my dress again, even though I was scared I would hate it. Turns out I remembered why I liked it so much. I’m also a laid-back, earthy, outdoorsy kind of girl, our wedding will be simple, not so much flair, and now I know that was definitely the dress for me. It really is my style. So I’m happy now. ๐Ÿ™‚ My Future Sister-In-Law said she remembers my face at the store, even with my “bridesmaid dress” on… lol Anyway, do what feels right to you. Simple and elegant. But if you do prefer the second dress it’s great that you get a chance to change that.

    I just want to call your attention to the way you took photos for all 3 dresses!  Now I realize that the love for dress 1 is lost.  Although I will say its very pretty on you!

    Jump to dress #3.. you’re hands are deliberately right in front of the pooch! [the tummy as we call it lol] its like you know the dress is fitted so you’re blocking our [all women!] problem areas.

    Now…. look at your badass self in #2.. arms on your hips all sassy..

     

    I like #2 ๐Ÿ˜‰
