I am someone who is very plain, very simple, and very indecisive. The dress I thought I was going to get the first time was the Maggie Sottero Ascher, which is incredibly beautiful and strapless; however, it was the first time that I had even looked at dresses or thought about styles, so we didn’t get it. Then, when we went back, I tried on a dress with straps (the Maggie Sottero Sawyer) and a low back that I absolutely loved—it was different, particularly because most of my friends have done the strapless thing; however, my mom was still in love with the other dress (that was her favorite) and my fiance’s mother liked that one better as well. I decided on teh second dress, but now I don’t know if I should have gone out on a limb with my style and done the strapless. I am actually having sleepless nights. Does anyone have advice on going strapless vs straps?

If you’ve chosen a dress that you love and is in keeping with your style, that’s a good thing.
If you’ve never really wanted to wear a strapless dress, why would you wear one? Other people may like the dress, but their not wearing it and it’s not their wedding. You’re the one who has to like the dress. Your style is what you have to think about.
Personally, I find dresses with straps refreshing. So many brides choose strapless dresses, and that’s fine, but I like it when a bride who is more comfortable with straps or sleeves wears them. It’s nice to not see the same style of dress all the time. Variety is good.
Maybe you could try on the two dresses again, one right after the other. That way, you might be able to see which one you like the most and feel the best in.
By the way, I looked at the Sawyer and Ascher gowns to see what you were talking about. Honestly, I like the Sawyer gown more, especially when I consider what you said about your style. To me, you did go out on a limb when you chose the Sawyer gown, it’s just a limb that is an offshoot of your everyday style. The Sawyer gown is a logical but unexpected choice, I guess you could say.
