Carly - Thanks for your comments, but unfortunately the store doesn't carry the lace gown and can't order the first dress
..... and like you it still takes my breath away..... I felt like a million bucks in that one!! but I went with the 'ruffles' for the theme PLUS its more comfortable than the lace... BUT does a bride go for GLAMOUR or COMFORT???

But back to your question. I absolutely think if you aren't happy, you should look for an alternative solution. Does the place you bought your dress, carry the dress that you want? Maybe they'll accept an exchange?
For what it's worth, I think both dresses are gorgeous on you, but #1 took my breath away. It seems made for your body.
Hi Mocha! My theme is very spanish, but my venue is not a beach.... it will be a church wedding and a beach/restaurant reception. Not sure if it makes a difference though....
I went to the store I bought the dress from and she also suggested that she'll do whatever it takes for me to fall in love with it again.... I just don't feel that it flatters my figure as well

I too experienced the "can't stop looking" feeling, but that's because I never felt a special attachment to the dress I chose. You'll look gorgeous on your day. If you want, maybe you can look into adding some bling like a sash? I added fuchsia netting to my crinoline to make it feel more special to me.
Thanks TLGnhci - I've managed to complain SO MUCH that my groom knows I'm having these doubts

So, I am focusing on how beautiful everything will be all pulled together. Your dress is gorgeous and your groom won't know that there was even a thought of another dress. Good luck deciding what to do!
