    Ladies thanks for all your kind, honest and encouraging comments. I had to take a couple days off of this wedding planning business and I am now seeing things from a new perspective. Unfortunately the original bridal shop only offered to give me back half of my deposit only towards another dress. I even had a chance to chat with the owner and she was so not willing to budge. Anyway I tried to put that behind me and really tried to find a dress--even if it wasn't in that store; and I found one. This whole ordeal really came as a shock to me and to put the icing on the cake I even shed a few tears through it all and my dress is safe and sound at my mom's house :). Im happy with my decision and so glad that I can check "the dress" off my list. Thanks so much ladies.

    Here's the dress on the model:

    Sorry there is not a better picture but the lady at the shop was kind enough to take a picture and send these to me as my phone was dead by this point.

        I live 10 min from the National Harbor and its a gorgeous place to get married, are you getting married at the Gaylord Hotel?
        Thank you! I grew up five minutes from the harbor. My parents live right there in Fort Washington. We may know each other

        Yes the ceremony will likely be at the Gaylord; however the reception will be held at a new venue that just opened that overlooks the water and the entire harbor. Im excited! Happy planning to you.

                    I love dress #2, it is so beautiful on you and really flatters your figure. Dress #1 is a big NO. Maybe it's just the photos, but the fabric looks sort of... cheapy.

                    Buy dress #2 and no more second guessing! :)

                      oops, I just read through to the end of the thread and see that you went with a different dress. It looks perfect! Congrats on finding your gown!
