    I think the Primavera dress looks great on you! Aside from that, it is a great price.

    The first one is stunning.  Sweetheart that neckline and you will be good to go!!  Stick with the Primavera and you will have “saved” $2400 – think about all the beautful things you can buy with that!  Shoes, veil, jewelery, make up, shoes… and then you’ll still have a wad of cash in your back pocket!  🙂

    @luvmyDwight: No problem! How much did you pay for the Primavera dress? I really like it and am considering getting it now!

    I agree with what @littlemissmango said. I looked at the pictures before reading the story and LOVED, without question, the Davenport on you. If I were your friend I’d probably advise you to go for that one, too, and try to recoup what you can of your first expenses. You’re only doing this once, and yeah, it’s just one day, but those wedding pictures will keep popping up forever!

    This is not to say that the Primavera isn’t beautiful on you, too. If you decide to stick with that one, I agree that a lace overlay on the top would look pretty.

    I love the bottom on the Primavera, and I love the top of the Watters gown.  Just a thought, did you want a sash? They can probably sew a sash onto the Primavera.  It won’t go all the way around because of the lace-up back, so it would end on either side of the laceup V.  They can add a flower too.  I didn’t know if that was a detail you were missing about the Watters that you really wanted.

    @luvmyDwight: I think a Sash woud be too much, especially with all the details on it and if you get a bridal top.

    they are so similar. Stick with what you have already paid for.
