So just a week or two ago I was worried about never finding a dress… and now I’ve found two! Help me decide, please 🙂
Some details- I think Dress #1 feels more “me” – a little different, a little less traditionally bridal (but still bridal enough, since i will be the bride!), very flowy and with an interesting back, which was exactly what I wanted. I actually went to the bridal shop specifically to try on this dress after seeing it online, and I loved it.
Dress #2 is beautiful but more traditional than what I thought i wanted. But, I think (at least in the pictures), it looks better on me – fits better, defines my waist nicely, and still is really soft and pretty.
Of course, neither dress is fitted to me since they’re just the samples, so both will look better on the day of when they fit me perfectly (and maybe i’m in slightly better shape). Also i like the little train on the 1st dress, and i love how it looks in motion. I don’t know. Both are within my price range, so that doesn’t help me decide. What do you think?
Now for the pics!
Dress # 1:
And the stock photo – you can see how soft and flowy it is-
What do you guys think??

I picked the 2nd one…the sash and the sweetheart neckline gives the dress an accent that the first one (at least I feel) was lacking.

I vote dress number 1. Just by reading what you wrote about the two, it sounds to me like you like the first one better, but you think the second one is more flattering. I think the first one looks fantastic on you, and it will look even better when fitted. If you wanted to add a little something to the first dress, you already have the satin band at the waist line that you could work with to add some sparkle, if that’s your thing.

I’m going to vote for dress 1 Because of your comments about it. Both dresses are so beautiful and your figure looks great in both, and as you said the first one will fit perfectly on the day. Seems like you like dress 2 because of the way it makes your body look, but you like dress 1 because of how beautiful the dress is.
Dress 1 girl!!

@BirdieNY: It was an easy choice for me as I think dress 1 looks stunning on you. It’s a really beautiful dress. Love it:))))

If you can soften the sweetheart neck on #1, I would definitely choose that! I love those sheer necklines!

I think dress #2 fits you a lot better. #1 just seems to hang on you funny…. and I don’t like the fit of the illusion neckline at all.
I would honestly keep looking. Something that was a cross between dress #1 and dress #2 might be better for you, as that would have elements of both dresses that you like….

I voted for number 1. I’m not usually a fan of illusion necklines, but this one is stunning!

@BirdieNY: I always like dresses like #2, but honestly I don’t think it’s as flattering as #1. I also love the contemporary styling of #1 and it’s sfot flow.

Much prefer #1. Yes, dress #2 looks better on you now, but IMHO it’s totally bland and vanilla compared to dress #1. It makes me feel sleepy looking at it.
There’s nothing about dress #1 that couldn’t be fixed with alterations. Also, I think you should add an a-line slip to give the skirt of #1 a bit more poof, so it’s more the shape of dress #2. That woould make a lot of difference. At the moment it’s sort of halfway between a flowy sheath and an a-line, but it doesn’t quite work, it sort of just hangs there.

I adore dress 1 on you! The 2nd is very plain and dress 1 looks way more bridal and elegant

@LTD418: totally agree! Dress 2 100 percent !

I went with dress #1 as well, probably because I am a sucker for illusion backs and necklines! It’s gorgeous, and to make it even better I would add a sparkly belt or something to the Satin waistband. And I love the little train on the first one as well.

i like them both. i think the 2nd one is really flattering on you but i think the 1st one will look amazing once it’s in the right size. i love the illusion neckline. i think if you love the 1st one (and it sounds like you love that one more than the 2nd one) then you should get it.
