How do you ever possibly decide on a dress?

I thought that I really liked this blush dress and that this would be the one once I had the top altered to fit better and the length shortened a bit. I knew I had 3 more coming to try on but didn’t expect much. But now I really like this champagne one. How do you possibly decide. My wedding is just a family elopement so neither dress is over the top, which is just how I want it. None of my family lives near me since
I moved so I literally have no input! What do you all think?How do you ever possibly decide on a dress? 1

    The dress you don't ever want to take off is the one. If you don't have that feeling, keep looking till you do but don't go broke either.

    Which one do you love and feel most beautiful in? You look stunning in both!

    I keep going back and forth! The blush one hangs better I think and makes me look a little smaller. It has less going on so I think my jewelry and veil might work better with it. It might be too much with the other. I took more pictures lol. I’m driving myself crazy! How do you ever possibly decide on a dress? 10

    Personally, I love you in the blush one although you look great in both! Based on your last post, I’m picking up some hints that you might be leaning toward that one as well, lol. Trust your instincts! If you feel that one may be a bit more right than the other, I think that’s the one you should go for. 😁

    I think I am leaning towards the blush one. I keep going back to it. I’m pretty sure that will be the one. I think it’s more flattering and feels
    More like me. I’m just so scared I’ll make the wrong choice and regret it!

    I love the spaghetti strap dress on you much more than the other.

    Totally understand! It’s difficult not to second-guess decisions on something so momentous as your wedding, particularly your wedding dress choice. I don’t think there’s a wrong choice, and I guess what helped me is the reminder that on your wedding day, no one else is going to be thinking about what other dresses you could’ve possibly chosen and you probably won’t either. No matter which dress you choose, as long as you feel beautiful and happy, all people will see is a radiant, joyful bride!

    I love the blush one. It looks amazing on you! The wider straps and mesh on the Champaign one give you a boxy look.

    I think you right! I thought the same thing and sent my mom a picture and she agreed as well. Just makes me look wider than I am! I’m pretty positive it’s going to be the blush one!

    I personally like the way the top fits you on the blush dress versus the champagne, so the blush would be my choice of the two.

    Both are beautiful. I personally like the champagne one more (but that's also because when I chose my dress modesty was a concern plus I feel I can't pull the spaghetti straps off anymore) but find that on you the blush one looks better.

    Here are my thoughts:

    Champagne: beautiful, classic, gorgeous lace back with buttons, but almost covers you up a little bit too much and I think the wider sash doesn't look as good on you as the thin belt.

    Blush: the color is beautiful and beautiful on you, more unique look, younger look, lighter, just very very beautiful. and I agree, on the pictures you look smaller in the blush dress.

    So, for me the blush is the winner. It is georgeous and beautiful and unique.

    But, as others have said. Maybe neither is the right one if you are so unsure. When I found my dress, I didn't want to take it off and didn't want to try more dresses (though we had pulled more out for me and it was only the third dress at the first store and now I am regretting I didn't try more just because of dress-fomo. LOL. ) Or maybe as you try on more dresses, you keep coming back to this one and you will be more and more sure that this is the one.

    They both look great, but my vote is on the blush dress!

    Hmmmm it’s close but the one with the spaghetti straps gives you a longer leaner frame and does more for your bust area. I like it better on you.

    I do love that blush!


    Here’s a bit of weird advice but my bridal shop had me do it and it 100% sealed the deal on my choice between 2 dresses: you want to see yourself walk in it. Without help this may be easier said than done, but maybe try to set up your camera to record a walk and then rewatch. I LOVED a dress on the hanger and even on me, it had beautiful multi layer lace , and then I put on another dress and loved that one too. Saw myself walk in it and was fully smitten, but I was still thinking about that lace! I got back into the first dress and was still feeling torn. Then I watched myself walk in it and had such a strong feeling of “oh wow, this is NOT my dress!!” — it made the decision so easy !

    I am personally a big fan of spaghetti straps and I think the back of the spaghetti strap one looks amazing on you!
