The first dress I tried on at David's bridal as my second dress with a sash/belt and it looked so good on me but I couldn't see myself paying $260 for a plain dress especially after all the money I spent on my gown. The second dress I ordered today from Fashion Nova for $60. I honestly like the look of the second dress better. I just hope it looks as good as the first dress on me.

    I personally like the first one- it's a little more elegant and you can always wear it again.

    Dress one looks more formal. The material looks more casual on the second dress. Only time will tell when you try the second one on in person. Hope it works out.

    I think the shoulder straps on dress 2 would be coming up and down on you all night dancing. I have tops like that and they never stay put. What about a dress with regular straps? I’m not changing dresses but if i was I’d wear one I could really dance in and not worry about the top falling down or the straps slipping at all.

    Those are sleeves so I was hoping it will stay up. Now I'm worried lol. Hopefully it will get there soon.

    Dance around in it when you get it and if it works awesome! If not, you’ll find something else. Both are gorgeous!! My only worry was being able to really dance

    Honestly I love the 2nd dress! And once it's on and you have your hair and make up done with some jewelry it will all work out!

    I'd pick the Fashion Nova Dress. It looks more comfortable than the DB one!

    I bought my dress on fashion nova too! The quality is AMAZING so don't be worried about that! (It came very quick too even though i never got a shipping confirmation)

    Mine has a slit up the leg that I love for the reception but not so much for the ceremony so I bought a bridal skirt to go over it that can easily be removed.


    Hop it works out for you!
