    I say try them both on and then have whichever one you LOVE the most on you. If it happens to be the second dress, then sell the first one. I am sure you will have no problem selling it!

    Follow your heart and get the dress that you feel the best in to walk down the isle!!!

It sounds like you have already made up your mind regarding which dress you want. Sell the first one.

      If it's the sensible factor that is influencing what you really want to do, think of it this way, we buy extra stuff all the time and we all have the right to change our minds. Sometimes, you have to through sensibility out the window so you can be happy. If it's not a common occurence, it's ok to do this sometimes.
      Jennifer, I think you hit the nail on the head! All night last night I just kept picturing myself walking down the aisle in the 2nd dress. Looks like I might have a dress for sale soon... oh well. I am going to try them both on again just to be sure tho.

      Thanks everyone for your input. I think if I loved the first one as much as I thought I did then I wouldn't have even wanted to try on the other one. So, looks like I might be buying dress #2.

          ooh, sharing would be good. I could ship it to PV from RM. It'll be clean from my TTD. lol

          So, I've decided to list my original dress for sale to see if I get any nibbles. I posted it here and on craigs list. Any other places you suggest? I don't want to put it on ebay cuz I just have no idea how or what the rules/ fees are for selling something on there.

            Start there... if it doesn't go there are tons of consignment shops that would take it. I think it will go!
            Who's taking your TTD photos? Are you excited? I have TTD booked as well with Elizabeth Medina. Looking forward to it! Not sure if I will wear my dress but probably!

                Kelly- both are gorgeous dresses for different reasons- go with the one you feel best in. Right now I am also leaning towards a WToo dress. I love their stuff! You might also want to post your dress on here Used wedding dresses. New, sample & used designer gowns. Buy & sell

                    2nd dress is more DW.
                    I love them both I guess it depends how formal you want the whole thing to be
                    I'm sure you will look beautiful whichever you decide.

                      For a destination wedding I would go with the second one. I think it looks funny when the men and BM are casual and the bride is in a very formal/traditional dress. Plus you will probably be really hot in the first one with it being satin and it will be really hard to take on the plan and will probably have to be steamed. The second one will pack easy.
