    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.

    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.

    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 🙂
