It is hard to tell without seeing you in the other one but I love the one that you have on hold.  It is odd of your aunt to get you a dress you have nver tried on.  NO matter what go with the one you like.  Your excuse can be that she took too long to get it to you.  It is weird that she did not send it to you right  away, had friends trying it on, etc.

the one you’re wearing GORGEOUS! The other one – hmm..can’t figure what it is about that one that I don’t like. Maybe it would look different on?

just remember, you have to look at these pics for the rest of your life – what is more important, wearing the dress you love or wearing the dress your AUNT loves (who is letting her FRIENDS try it on) I would be offended that she let her friend try on the dress..who does that?!

i second everything that carbon_girl said πŸ™‚

HOneslty, i like both dresses. I really like the one your aunt got you but you made a good point when you said it is kind of like a little girls dress, from the pics it looks like it. but it might look different on. i think you should try it on with an open mind. 

the dress you have on in the pics is amazing. you look so elegant and beautiful! it is amazing on you πŸ™‚

If you end up going with the dress you got just tell your aunt how much you appreciate her but that you found your dress and explain why you like it. and also that she took too long ot send it to you and you wanted the shop around b/c you did not want to miss out on that experience. 

Good luck πŸ™‚ no matter what you will be a beautiful bride!

wear the dress you like best…just tell your aunt (in a nice way) that you appreciate her buying the other dress, but when you put the dress that you bought on, you know it is the “one” …don’t let her guilt you into making a choice you might regret…

yeah. thats a little strange to me. i would say “it means a lot to me, but i really just needed to pick out a dress on my own.” maybe tell her you will keep the dress for a future daughter of your’s to wear on her special day! πŸ™‚

have you thought about maybe wearing your dress as the ceremony gown and changing into your aunts dress for the reception?

It’s great that you have two dresses to choose from! If you’re happy with the one you have on hold definitely go with that one. It’s your wedding and your aunt should understand. However, I’d say give the one your aunt bought a chance. I personally like flowy skirts better so that would probably be my pick if I was the one choosing.

well, auntie didn’t go out of her way to get you the dress.  and she had someone else try it on??

sorry, your feelings count too. 

and you found the one you bought so that has to say something.  i think that auntie will have to get over it.

Wear the dress you like the best. I can’t tell what the other one looks like on you, but from the pictures, I love the dress you have on much better. I love  how simple and gorgeous and elegant it is. Plus, you look amazing in it. But try your aunt’s dress on. If you don’t like it, simply tell her that you really appreciate her buying it and fixing it, but you are more comfortable in the other dress so that is the one you are going to wear.

PS: where from MT are you?!
