    #1 reminds me a lot of Jessalyn's dress...and I don't remember her saying she was too hot or anything?

    Honestly, I like them both. But I agree, If you're happy w/ the one you have then I wouldn't go through the process or buying and selling dresses if I didn't have to. :-)

      I prefer #1. They do have the same cut, so while I think either would be flattering, I'm not in love with the ruffle thing on #2, but that's just my opinion. I wore satin and I wasn't too hot for my may Cabo wedding.

        i like #1 - but mainly becuase of that lace/tulle in the chest area of #2, if it weren't for that i'd really like them both

I got married in June, the hot season in Cabo, and their was a ton of wind the day of our wedding so it kept us cool, in fact for our dinner I was actually kind of cold..
            This was what iw as thinking as well. You will definitely have to take a loss on the first dress and honestly I agree that in October it won't be super hot either.

                  I like the 2nd one better. Who is the designer? I would love to see that dress.

                    I LOVE #2 from the back but not a big fan of the ruffles...

                      The second dress is an Alvina Valenta. It's an older AV. I can't find any other pictures of it anywhere. It's no longer on the designer's website; I think it's from the Fall 03 line, style #AV9351. This dress is a size 0/2. If that will work for you, I can send you the seller's contact info.

                      Thank you for all of your feedback. I *think* I am going to keep the first dress. I do like it, and I really don't want to go through the hassle of trying to sell it. The fabric is actually a silk taffeta, not satin. In person, it's not as shiny as it appears in the photos.

                      Thanks again!

                      Laura
