      Thanks for your votes and comments everybody, I've narrowed it down to #1 and #3. The issue is that I tried on #1 in Michigan where they let you take pictures of yourself in the dress; I tried on #3 in London, Ontario and they will not let you take pictures until you buy it. I feel like I need to compare side by side pictures of me in both dresses to really make up my mind. Thanks again ladies, I'm getting closer to choosing!

        Honestly, I love dress #1 on you! I like how the bottom part starts on an angle, it's very flattering.

          What store did you try it on at? I tried on some dresses at Nicholas and Elizabeth and Sophies and I was able to sneak some photos when I was in the change room by myself between dress changes. Obviously not the best photos but it helped with my decision. I just kept my little camera in my purse and brought my purse into the change room.

            The one you have on is the way to go, but the best way to decide is trying them all on, dance around in them and squat too. comfort is important

              Hello again ladies, so....yesterday I went to try on dress #3, this time I got pictures because I picked it, I put down a deposit, but now I'm having second thoughts. I've called the store back today and asked them to put a hold on my invoice. I keep getting the feeling that I chose the wrong dress. I feel like I'm going crazy!! Did anyone else go through this?

               

              Anyways, here are pictures of me in both dresses, any differing opinions now that I have pictures of myself in both dresses?

               

              Here is dress # 1 again - I've only tried this dress on once, but it was my first day of wedding dress shopping almost a month and a half ago. I love the shape it gives me, I like the beading on the top, the true sweetheart neckline and the fact that it is a corset back. It also looks good with my mom's pearls.

              Allure front

              and the back...

              Allure back

               

              Now here is dress # 3 - found towards the end of my shopping experience, this is the dress that made me decide that I wanted the mermaid/fit-and-flare sillouette. I like that it's different - I haven't found pictures of a bunch of other girls wearing it. It does come with the flowered belt, but I can remove it and add my own jeweled belt like I've done below. It has a zippered back and is very light weight. I think I would make it into a slightly deeper sweetheart though.

              and another...

               Anjolique

               

              Any thoughts? I wish someone else could make the decision for me!

                I still think #1 looks gorgeous on you!! 

                 

                If you're having second thoughts, go with your gut. Wait a couple days and go back to them both, and really be aware of how you feel in the dress. I tried on a dress once and fell in love with the simplicity of it. I was this close to paying for it that day (it was only $400 too!) but I asked if I could take a day or two to think it over. When I went back and tried it on again, it wasn't the same. I noticed things about the dress that just did not look good on me that I hadn't noticed before. I ended up not going with it, and instead bought my dream dress a month later. 

                 

                I say go with your gut.

                  Both look great on you, but the beading and shape of the train on #1 look great in my opinion. It is totally different than the dress I picked (empire waist sheath with no beading), but I like it on you! 

                   

                  I went back to try on the dress I liked (found on the first day I was serious about finding my dress) 6 weeks after I initially tried it on. Go with your gut. If you keep thinking it over it might be your gut telling you something....
