Dress 2!

The problem is the 1st dress was a size 22(I am a 4) and it was so hard to see how it would look on me even with trying to clip it back. And I am not sure if it has to much detail for a beach wedding. The 2nd dress I was originally not a fan of the roughing but I loved it on this dress because it had a little bling on it. 

I do have an appointment for Saturday to try on more but I keep thinking about these 2 dresses & thought maybe I wont have that "moment"...

They're both gorgeous dresses, but have you thought about whether you will be comfortable in them on the beach and in the heat?  They look like satin - satin can be very heavy, and it will get heavier if the bottom gets wet (don't know if you're planning on that or not), and once it's wet and picks up sand, it will be a mess.  Taffeta and organza would fare much better in the water and sand, and they're also much lighter.  Not a dealbreaker, but just something to think about.  Finally, don't settle!  If it's not your gut feeling that it's the dress, then keep looking.  The dress won't go anywhere, but you could end up with a costly mistake.  I went to many more stores and tried on many more dresses than you.  There were lots of pretty ones, but I don't know why, for some reason none of them felt like "the one."  I'm glad I kept looking until I found the perfect dress for me.  Good luck, and post when you find it.  It's so exciting to have your dress ordered!

Sharon they are both lovely dresses.  With the first one - though it has more bling - the bustline reminds me of seashells with the scallop edges so it fits a beach wedding in my mind.  The second - I found that I like ruching which surprised the heck out of me!  I like the second one more but I agree with Kristie - whichever one makes you feel the most beautiful is the one for you!  I haven't found my dress either - I like bits and pieces of dresses but have appointments on the 11th and am hoping that is my day!

Thanks everyone for your help & comments! Glad I am not alone with trying on so many. I find myself thinking about dress #2 a lot but will definitely have to think about the satin. 

@Brenners - good luck with your appointments!! I hope you too find your dress! Post a pic if you do!!!

Dress 2 is stunning. I love the neckline! I've yet to get the "This is the one" feeling as well. It's reassuring to know I'm not the only one! Good luck Sharon99... I'm sure whatever you pick will be absolutely gorgeous!

It looks almost identical... I would have thought it was the same! Congrats on finding your dress!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
