    Ohhh, ok. I love the way the Casablanca fits you, it is very flattering. At least she's willing to work with you on the price. If you really love it & its the one, then go for it. You can always sell the one that you already bought!!!

      I like the first one better on you too only because you have the body for it and it's very flattering. I do like the second one too....

      Are you doing a trash the dress? You could use one for that or sell it...I Think I remember you said you got a pretty good deal on the one you bought already?

          when you had first posted a thread a few weeks ago, of the dress on the models, I loved the dress you bought, but now seeing them on you, I really love the casablanca dress too!

          It had seemed like the lace one flared out in the model pic, but it really doesn't at all its very straight.

            Hi Leia,

            I like the first one-- the CAsablanca dress. I agree with the rest who said it is very flattering to your body. But you are beautiful and I think you will look very beautiful in both. Are you planning to wear your hair up or down? Love your hair too!

              The lace one is nice, but the Casablanca one is GORGEOUS on you!

                I'm sorry, but I like the first one (casablanca) better too. Though the other is still nice

                  Honestly I LOVE the way the second one looks on you.. They both are great dresses but IMO the second one just makes you shine..

                    So sorry Leia, but i love the Casablanca one! If it's in your budget, buy it! You can put your gown on ebay today and perhaps sell it before the wedding. You need to be happy.

                    I was going to say I liked the lace one better on you, then one post made me go back and look at your facial expression (that's what I usually judge by, which one a girl looks happier in!), and both expressions were the same! So I looked at the dresses closer, and decided I really like the Casablanca one better. I was so set on the lace one, and it is beautiful, but the new one just has that certain something that makes you go "Thats the ONE!"
                    Sorry, I know you didn't want to spend more money, but if you go by our majority, looks like you need to get the new one!
                    You do look stunning in both tho, so whichever way you go, you will look amazing on your big day :)
