    No, stick with dress 1!

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

    orchardbride29:  I have to tell you that normally in these situations I side with keeping the dress you already have. BUT, that second dress is just a dream on you. I actually tried that dress on and it did not flatter me at all, but on you, it just looks like the dress. I say go with that.

    Buy a second dress, it’s magical on you ๐Ÿ™‚ 

     

    BUT, with the first dress, I would shorten it up to the midi length and have a coctail dress for dinner/dance/whatever.

    ChicagoSLK:   your posture is different in all 3 pics and you seem much more confident in dress #2….I like 2 as well.

    Dress #2 is stunning on you, makes your figure look amazing!  #1 is pretty but #2 is gorgeous ๐Ÿ™‚

    I think dress 2 is very much you based on your description of earthy and down to earth-ness natural kind of style you’re looking for with a little bit of extra kick! It’s definitely got a wow factor– I think more than that $5k dress actually! 

    I think if you go with dress one, you won’t be sorry either though. It’s elegant and very understated. My only quarrel is that you may not get that wow factor as the second dress would give you.

    orchardbride29:  The second dress is GORGEOUS.  I don’t like that the first one doesn’t have a train- that’s what makes a wedding dress a wedding dress!  I say go for #2!

    orchardbride29:  You are so sweet to find those links for me! Sadly, I’ve already searched every combination of “horsehair” and “organza ribbon/trimmed” veils, and looked through nearly every page on the internet (and definitely came across those beauties you posted!), and I just can’t justify spending more than $100 on a veil. All the ones I find are at least $150+… Like I said, I’ll probably try to make it myself and then if it fails horribly, I’ll suck it up and buy one. But thank you so much for your suggestions, it’s really nice of you to help!

    Number 2 looks like it was made for you!!!

     

    the whole experience of having that bridal salon lie to you about the dress and charge you double for a bridesmaid dress during a sale is outrageous. I would have demanded my money back and flipped them the bird. ๐Ÿ˜› no way I would have given them my business after that shadiness.

    I find it funny that the dress you fell in love with but is out of your budget (#3) is a completely different shape from the first two dresses…. I personally think the third one shows off your figure the best, however I also think the first dress is very unique… all three are beautiful! I guess I’m not really that much help ๐Ÿ˜› Good luck!

    LoveMyBrit:  I had my dress custom made by a very talented lady in Chicago I found on Etsy and the seamstress who did it makes veils too! They are very very reasonably priced and work within a person’s budget. My dress was only $700, I know this doesn’t give much indication about the veil, (I am not wearing a veil so I declined their offer), but the quality of the dress is remarkable for what I paid. If you are interested I can send you their info and you can reach out to them and let them know what your budget is and what you are looking for. I bet they would make your veil for less than $100.

     

    veils are so outrageously priced! I saw a post the other day where someone was looking at a veil that was $900!!! I was like omg! That’s more than what my dress cost, for a piece of TULE and LACE!!! So crazy.

    3 is my favorite even though you are covering it with your hands. 2 is my next favorite.
