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.

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 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.
