In the end, I really wanted the Cinderella poofy dress! It was my wedding, so that's what I got. You need to do what will make you happy. It is such a special day, you need to be happy and not second-guessing your choices.
I loved my dress but never had the "It's THE ONE" feeling. But, I was completely satisfied with my choice.

I hate to sound redundant.. but I agree with everyone else!!
Get what YOU like.. most bridal stores will work with you on timing. If you want the blue dress, then get it. As long as you love it, you can pull it off.
Hang in there and good luck!!
You will find something that makes you feel amazing!

My dress just came in. I was stressing that it would be late and I wouldn't have the alterations done in time but the lady at the bridal shop assured me that they can actually have the alterations done in a few days. It is possible!
Don't be so hard on yourself!

afterward, i realized it was the right dress, because it made me feel like a bride, and all the flowy beachy dresses that i thought i wanted just didn't. the more i look at it now, the more i love it! and to think, i would have never even tried it on if my girls weren't there with me!
only problem now is i wonder how many other beautiful dresses i may have missed out on since i wasn't trying on anything satin/traditional!

I think you looked lovely in the 2nd dress, but ultimately you have to feel lovely and sexy and beautiful and if none of them make you feel that way, then you have to find one that does.
It doens't matter what the freaking dress looks like or if other people like it. It's about YOU.
My first one was all about me being frugal and beachy and simple and buying it without stressing. It wasn't right. My second one has major flair and has that oomph that the first one was missing. For me - that meant having a really fun hemline with poof. If for you that means having pick ups and a strapless style OR going with an aqua coloured dress, DO IT! You will look beautiful no matter what,on your wedding day, but you have to feel beautiful too.
Would it be better to just go without your mom and sister? Do you have a friend who would be less opinionated?
Good luck! You can definitely find dresses off the rack. That's what I did last month when I had so little time to go.

It took me a couple of weeks to get over it, but fortunately I now LOVE my dress to be!
The trying to please everyone else thing is kinda my problem too... I've been doing it because I don't want to put any stress or burden onto anybody in the wedding but that's driving me crazy too. This is just creating a BURDEN on ME ... so I'm working on changing my thought processing and trying to remember this is OUR wedding and what matters is what WE want, not them. I know everyone and their mamma wants to give you advice, just smile and listen, but then go with what YOU want.
GOOD LUCK in finding your dress.
