    I think you look gorgeous in your current dress – I can’t imagine cringing when you look at that picture!  Without pictures of you in the Anne Barge, it’s hard to say which is better. 

    Has the Lazaro come in yet?  I’d wait until you get it and try it on again (in the right color and size) before you make a decision.  You may fall in love with it all over again.

    I actually LOVE the Lazaro and am a little jealous because I can’t pull that dress off.  The Anne Barge doesn’t really do it for me.  The skirt seems a little too random/asymetrical and overall looks messy.  And the ruching on the bodice looks funny to me because side is ruched and the other isn’t, which is giving the illusion that her boobs are different sizes.

    But either way, if you cringe at the thought of the dress you’ve bought, you should probably change.  However, I do think it looks beautiful on you.

    Honestly I like the lazaro much better.

    I am not a fan of the skirt on the Anne Barge and by raising the waist and adding the belt you will make the top look just like the lazaro.

    Stick with the dress you have ordered. It is stunning and when it your dress and the right color you will be gorgeous.

    #1 – I prefer your dress 100%

    #2 – I am not sure the second dress would be as pretty with a natural waist and the alterations you are doing are trying to make dress #2 look like your dress!

    I think you need to re-fall in love with your dress. Go and try it on again – maybe find a sample in ivory and fall in love all over again!

    I feel like you’re changing the new dress so it looks like the old dress. I would stick with your original purchase. The only diffence between the new dress and the old dress is the waist which you’re changing and the lack of belt which you are adding. I guess the skirt is different, but I like the simpler one better. The skirt on the new dress just seems messy (to me)

    I LOVE the Lazaro on you!  I’m honestly not a huge fan of the second dress.

    @Future MrsB:  You’re spot on with the uneven boobs comment. I couldn’t figure out why it looked so weird to me.

    I loveee this Lazaro dress, and it looks great on you! I would stick with what you have because I don’t think the second dress is as pretty as the first, and I’m not sure the alterations you’re suggesting will make it better. I think you are a lot safer not paying so much more to change the second dress to something you haven’t actually seen.

    I think the dress you bought is georgeous and it looks great on you! I actually had the “wow, thats really pretty thought” when I looked at it. 

    I think if you really really love the second one though, go for it. In my opinion it would need to be a really lavish wedding to fit in though.

    Yours is elegant and classic.  The skirt on the other one looks a little bit like a crumpled up tissue.

    In My Humble Opinion I am NOT a fan of the Anne Barge dress, its so busy in the skirt it almost looks sloppy. I think the Lazaro is classic, its not going to look dated in 20 years but I think the Anne Barge will have you thinking “Wtf was I wearing?” when looking back on your wedding day pics. I went thru the same thing you’re going thru, I fell in love with a second dress after my first one was ordered and when I tried it on I realized I still loved my original dress. Maybe you should wait until yours comes in in the right size and color and see what you think then.

    I love your original dress and don’t understand how you can hate it. Nothing about the new dress appeals to me personally. And think the Lazaro is beautiful on you!
