The ball gown is just gorgeous! Make sure you are using a silicone scar gel. They work wonders. Also, dermablend makeup will cover almost any scar. 🙂 you will be a beautiful bride!

I love the train on the first one, it is so dramatic! Which dress do you feel more like “you” in? Both are beautiful.

the ball gown with the high waist is beautiful, loving the detail of the sequined/beaded/glittery bodice! Personally, not a fan of ruffles.

I much prefer the ballgown. I love the details and I think it will age better (so in 10 years when you look back you wont look dated).
I am like mbee7…not a fan of ruffles.

I personally LOVE the second dress & really dislike the first one. I think the first is kind of dated, and I hate the ruffles. BUT you can’t please everyone, get what you feel beautiful in.

You’re lucky in that you have a great figure and look great in both. It really just depends what look you’re going for, maybe also what your venue is.
The ballgown is more classic, but as mermaids go I don’t think the first dress is exceptionally trendy, though it’s obviously a more contemporary style.

I love the ballgown… is it Maggie Soterro?

To be completely honest, I strongly dislike the first dress. The asymmetrical dropped waist is not the most flattering, and I hate the ruffly skirt. (Sorry!) That second gown is beautiful on you. You have a lovely figure and it shows it off well, and in general, the gown is more elegant and timeless.

Well, I hate to make my sister look like a criminal…but LOL…<br />When I tried on the ruffle low waist gown my sister thought I changed my mind and told everyone she hated the ball gown “It made her look like she was hiding a pregnancy or something, yuck it was just so NOT HER! I really hated it, thank god she changed her mind” SHE DIDN’T MEAN for it to sound so rough, she thought it wasn’t a contender anymore so…those things were unfortunately said today…<br />ALOT of people like the ball gown 🙂 I like it too…I just wish the train was longer and my sister didn’t make the “pregnacy” comment…<br />AND THANK YOU @tinatiny1 🙂 I’m going to look into that!! <br />I’ve shockingly had heart procedures and surgeries in the past and came out without much scars…its been 3 weeks and my wounds are closed but the skins feeling like its raising, and looks a different colour, so my mom has been trying very hard to research things to help ..I might ask my doctor but I feel guilty complaining…some people don’t survive heart surgeries and here I am doing well and bitching about a few marks on my wedding day…<br />Thanks for all your input ladies :)<br />Me being so unsure…do you think thats a sign maybe I’m not done looking anymore?<br />Either gown would look nice with my venue and the bridemaids dresses my sister picked 🙂 so I can’t lose either way…just gotta make up my mind..I felt kind of “sexy” in the full figure one…and again the sister thing…I love her but..ouch..not the right timing …

Katie.Xo: Both great on you. I would have a hard time choosing. Is there one that fits in more with your event?
Aren’t there brands like CornSilk – make-up that covers really well? Or DermaBlend? I’m sure I’ve heard there are brands out there, so even if some scarring remains for the day, you can hide it.
Congratulations on your wedding 🙂
