Not really dress regret, but... Suggestions wanted?

So when i went dress shopping for my dress i tried on several dresses and ultimatly bought the first one i purchased ( http://www.flickr.com/photos/54526034@N00/8748556169/in/set-72157632330359842/  ignore the goofy grin). It's beautiful and i love it (and am so glad that i tried the others on because it made me appreciate THE one) BUT i tried on another dress that i absolutly loved how it felt to wear and how it looked on me... i still want it. LOL but it was too simple for my original idea for my wedding (which now the gown i chose may end up being too formal, but too late now.) so i was wondering if any of you ladies know of a dress similar to to it, in a different color or something so i could wear it? i have plenty of weddings to go to in the following years and am always attending at least one formal ball a year at the conventions i attend... so itd be fun to have a "ball gown" that i could enjoy and wear.


the dress in question:


So when i went photo 3480689-1


me wearing said dress: http://www.flickr.com/photos/54526034@N00/8750990988/in/set-72157632330359842


so id love to hear what you guys think? am i just trying to get the best of both worlds? im spending too much on my dress so i dont want a second/reception dress. so id love to hear what you think!

Ok I am confused, your looking for a new dress but you want a colored dress in the style of the picture you posted? Is that right? Sometimes you can get lucky looking on craigslist. or there are lots of used wedding dress sites. Do you have a style number and or name? How much do you want to spend??

Zeuster, you are correct. I want the above dress or something as similar to it as possible. I bought a bridesmaid dress recently thinking it would have the same feel and it doesn't. *insert sad face here* and I want it in color because I don't want another wedding dress, I just want a gown that looks and feels like that one. It's sort of a "for-fun/ball gown for formal" events dress that I'm looking for. Not a wedding dress because well I already have mine. :P the one pictured above (that I didn't know PW would resize it so you can't read the info) is a David's bridal galiana and I can't make out the style number. Ill have to look on my computer later because I purposely made the photo little bigger so you girls could see all the info on the right and well PW played a trick on me! Lol

I'd really like to stay at 200 or less with emphasis of less but I know that might prove difficult. (This original gown was 495 I think.) I would gladly search for a used one (if found cheap enough) and dye it but I don't know if chiffon dyes easily?? I've heard of folks useing dresslily.com or something like that? Wonder if they'd be able to make something similar in a different color?? Hmmm

Or should I just give up. Lol is it a waste of space in my closet lol!

Thanks for the suggestions ill check em out after work! The dress (I linked a pic to it of me wearing it) has long petal like ruffles that run length wise on the dress so they flow and flutter when you turn. :) thanks. Maybe I shouldn't really bother lol. You know how it is when you get the itch to want something.
