If you feel the dress is too princessy you can make your look less formal with hair down and flowing, with different type off veil (birdcage) or no veil and jewelry. One of the reasons I adore wedding bee is bc we can see different takes of the same dress – it can look really different with accesories and shoes. If you still don’t feel you can make the look “you” enough with shoes, hair, makeup, jewelry then consider switching. The dress you have is gorgeous. But, if you don’t like it anthropolgie has a bridal line that is very hipster and the dresses are still “bridal”

The Ambrosia is amazing, but if you dont feel like “you” then I wouldn’t wear it. I dont think choice number 2 will make you very happy in the end, especially if you’re already worried of regretting it.

Hmm… I’m actually really surprised at the ‘little girl’ comments!
Wasn’t exactly what I was expecting!
I do really like the floral and rhinestones, it’s actually the cut I wasn’t sure about!

First off, I just don’t grasp the concept of eloping, then not having more than 1 person (the groom), see a dress that obviously is quite a production! A dress with that drama needs a proper wedding.
Having said that, the second dress is not a wedding dress. Perhaps you can confine your search to something they call “destination dresses”. They are not quite as dramatic as that first one, but they do look bridal and they are toned down for an elopement for that far-off wedding.
