hello everyone 🙂
this is my first post, but i am so very excited to have found this board. you all seem like a great community!!
my fiance and i are having a destination wedding in St Lucia in June 🙂 my bmaids, mom and I have been dress shopping and i have it narrowed down to two dresses. one (one the left) is an Oleg Cassini that has since been discontinued so this is like the only one left. The other (right) is a new Alfred Angelo design. keep in mind the one on the left is my size and the one on the right is a size too small. am super curious to get votes on which one you all like best. they are so different it’s gotten hard for me to know which one i prefer haha. thanks ahead of time for your honesty and comments 🙂

@citrisgirl: I like the one on the left better. You should add a poll to this 😉

@citrisgirl: You look beautiful in both! I like the Alfred Angelo (on the right) better; it already gives you a nice silhouette through the waist and the detailing in the neckline is so pretty. Are you having the wedding on the beach? Because that dress might be a little easier to navigate than the one on the left. But, really, go with the one that feels most like you!

@citrisgirl: The dress on the right seems to have prettier detailing on the neckline and is more flattering in the waist. I also prefer the modified A line silhouette of the dress on the right.

I prefer the Oleg (on the left). I think it’s such a romantic looking dress and is also very figure flattering.

Alfred Angelo. It really shows off your figure better

Love the one on the right! It shows off your figure beautifully and I love the detail on the neckline.

I tried on the one on the left! It’s a gorgeous dress!
That being said, the dress on the right looks STUNNING on you! (And it looks like it fits you really well, to me!)

@eilean: not directly on the beach, no. i have this horrible vision in my head of a giant wave coming up and splashing me or sand getting blowin into my hair and face haha. i’m thinking up in the garden/gazebo area, and having the beach as a back drop. you make a good point tho!

@BrandNewBride: it is so comfortable isn’t it?? was it the dress you went with? the one on the right was not the right size the top was too big and it’s too tight across my hips..which is why i look a little pregnant haha. my mom always said i never had any vision when it comes to how things are going to look all done, and i think that’s part of my problem here. the cassini fit perfectly so i know it’s gonna look exactly like it does. the other one i have to imagine a lil bit, and trust. not my strong suit 😉

@citrisgirl: No, I ended up with an INSANE 53 pound ballgown! But that dress was super comfy! It made my top 5 easily. And you DEFINITELY don’t look pregnant!

@citrisgirl: Welcome to the bee 🙂
I like the Oleg Cassani better – I think it’s more flattering and I like that it doesn’t have as much going on – the AA feels like it’s trying to hard or something.
BUT – you need to love your dress, that’s just my opinion, you go with the dress you love, and if you don’t love these then keep hunting!

IMO, the Oleg Cassini blows the other dress out of the water!
