My Dress Dilema~ Advice Please

Recommended Posts

*UPDATE* I bought the second dress today! It should be in October 24th! Yay!

 

 

So, I bought my dress back in April from David's Bridal. I love it! But it definitely wasn't the style of dress I was picturing for my DW. All of the dresses I tried on that were more beachy/flowy just didn't look right on me. This dress felt perfect even tho it didn't fit what I had in mind for the day. Fast forward to today. We were BM dress shopping (which we bought) and I wanted to try on this Wtoo dress (just for fun) that I had been eyeing on the computer while searching for BM styles. Well, I love it! And its the style I was picturing. What nowhuh.gif Oh, and FMIL offered to buy the 2nd dress for me. I would have to sell the first dress if I switch because it needs alterations and I'm not going to pay for them and then wear it for 2 hours and change into the 2nd dress.

 

Sorry the pics are terrible. Neither site would let me save to my computer.

Here's the dress I have now in White~ David's Bridal - Bridal Gowns CT203 Strapless beaded metallic embroidered gown.

So, do I get the 2nd dress? I'm thinking about bringing my original dress to the salon and trying on BOTH to see what I like better.

Oh, I love the second one! I hate to be the one to say you should be a 2 dress bride, but I realllllllly like the 2nd one.

I agree that the second dress is more "DW" but... the first is ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS!

 

hmmm what to do....

 

If you love the one you have, stick with it and change the attire and feel of the wedding to a more formal event - many DW brides have formal DW's. Just because your DW is on the beach does not mean that all formality goes out the window.

 

If you wear the first one FI MUST wear a full suit to complement the dress...

 

If you love it - keep it. bottom line!

 

good luck!

I think you should get which ever dress makes you feel fabulous! You could always sell the first one.

I love that dress! It's already on my list to try on when I go dress shopping. :)

Regarding having 2 dresses - I think it depends on how formal you want your DW. Both are beautiful dresses and you definitely can't go wrong with either one! I definitely think bringing both dresses to the salon is a good idea. And I don't think you'd have any trouble selling the first dress if you decide to get the WTOO dress - it would be beautiful for a DW or a non-DW.

BTW, I got a quote of under $380 for the WTOO dress on netbride.com! Just in case money makes a difference...

I think you should get whichever dress you feel the best in! They are both beautiful, and very different from each other.

    • What color is your wedding? You can go with warm autumn-inspired colors such as burnt oranges, dark reds, burgundy, bright yellows, like fall foliage   https://printsbery.com/invitations/wedding/burgundy   What planning have you guys done?  
    • We booked our wedding for April 2021 but the venue let us know at this time they are still implementing Covid measures so we should not have more than 50 guests, etc. We also made sure the contract had an "out" clause that would let us get a refund should the pandemic blow up again, or have the ability to reschedule without penalty.
    • I am having my wedding scheduled in November 2020. I am too much worried about how all the things will be managed in this pandemic situation. About everything like the guest list, preparations, my attire and all. The only thing I am relaxed is about finances. In Feb only me and my fiancé applied for the wedding loans. We have applied early because both of us are having bad credit we had a doubt that it will be approved or not. But our wedding loans with bad credit were timely approved and we have planned accordingly but now this pandemic has spoiled all our preparations. We are trying to be positive and trying to celebrate our new beginnings.
