    The dress you bought is much more flattering and has a young, modern look! Based on your descriptions it sounds like thats the one you love and that’s what’s important!

    I would just be honest with you aunt.  Express to her that you love the dress she purchased for you and you truly appreciate that she thought about you and your wedding.  And, that you could sense how much she loved you through her actions. 

    But, you wanted to experience the fun and excitement of trying on wedding dresses, especially since it’s a once in a lifetime opportunity, and when you went, you found something else that really suited you and that you fell in love with.

    Express to her that your decision to go with that dress is, in no way, meant to hurt her feelings and doesn’t discount what she did for you.  But, you want to feel as happy as possible on your wedding day and wear something that really expresses who you are, and it’s the dress you found.

    Then offer to pay her back or make it up to her.  That’s my advice!

    I again vote for the dress you bought! For one thing, you look so much happier in it– genuinely happy. You’re smiling in the other dress but it’s not as genuine as with the dress you bought. It honestly sounds to me like your hang up at this point is hurting your aunt’s feelings– but it’s YOUR wedding day. You’ll have to look at pictures of yourself in one of these two dresses for the rest of your life. Which dress would you rather be in those pictures?

    I vote for the dress you bought!!

    With all due respect your aunt’s moves look so shady. She came to see your dress and did not bother to bring the one she bought!? What was that all about??

    Just think about the fact that family fights may not e what you want to remember about your wedding by. Other than that I’d go definitely with the brand new, no-damages, that you have already seen and tried on!

    i may be in the minority but i actually love the dress your aunt bought for you.  i think it is romantic and beautiful while the pronovias looks like so many i have seen ie nothing special.  dont get me wrong it’s a pretty dress but imo it is common.  i will say that with proper alterations and a proper fitting bra the one your aunt bought will look quite stunning.  

    but nothing any of us says matters because it is your day and which ever makes you feel the most special is the one you should wear.  good luck!

    I think the dress your aunt bought looks a little “frumpy” and old lady like…I think that the Pronovias dress makes you look elegant and young and fun. So go for Pronovias!
