Wow, they’re both very different looks and yet they both look great on you!  You couldn’t have gone wrong either way  =o)  Whew, you got that done just in time for the wedding!!

I had a similar experience, and I’m so glad I made the switch! I would have been fine in the original dress, but the second dress really made me feel a lot better–more “me.”  Glad you are super happy–it’s an awesome dress, and you look fabulous!

Aww well done on being able to swap πŸ™‚ I know a million percent the dress iv brought and paid for is not going to be worn on my day! It’s now on eBay and another selling site but no luck yet πŸ™ will be dress shopping again next year!! And I’m so excited to buy my new dress, it’s so easy to purchase a dress by others reactions….especially the highly trained sales lady!

oooh I really like your new choice!!! lucky, most shops would not allow an exchange, so you definitley lucked out!   and yes, I second that they are all well trained in helping you to make an on the spot decision, and it doesnt help when everyone else around you is googling along w/the sales lady. lol. I really like the 2nd one on you, gives you a great figure and is a beautiful gown!

@AcheneMalefic:   I was having dress regret for quite some time. This morning I read your post and you inspired me to get up and do something about it. I started writing a huge thank you reply to your post but it got so long that I just made a whole new post all together. Here is the new post I made so you will know exactly how much you helped me. I cant possibly describe the sigh of relief and the complete excitement I now have. Thank you so so much!!!!!

Fixed my dress regret. Thank you AcheneMalefic!!!!

I usually am way more of a ballgown girl than fit-and-flare, but your new dress is SO much better on you than the old one. You even look happier!
