    Are you saying you’re planning to buy 2 dresses? Why do you need a back-up dress?

    EDIT: I don’t really like either of those dresses, I’m sorry 🙁 I think you should keep looking, there is definitely something better out there!

    Ditto on wondering why two?  And honestly?  Neither of these, i think.  Keep looking a little more.  Try Alfred Angelo maybe?  They have some very flattering styles, and a lot of places carry them.  (and they’re not too $$$ – important if you’re planning to buy 2.)

    I agree with mak418, I don’t really like any of those, I think you should look a little more.

    You don’t need a back-up, the full beaded lace one the hive chose is perfect for you ! Have some faith in yourself girl ! 🙂

    I have to agree with the others.  I went back and looked at your other post and I really like the all beaded dress so don’t think you need a backup, but if you really feel like you do I would keep looking for a killer dress.  Out of the two though I prefer the one with the tulle skirt.

    I agree with the others I dont really like either of the dresses on you. Are you asking about a back up because you dont like the dress the hive picked? I deff think you should keep looking!

    Neither… I’m sorry.  #1 looks too costumey and as for #2 I’m just not a fan of pick-ups or colored sashes.  Why do you need a back-up?  If you want a separate reception dress I’d get something short ‘n sassy!

    I just read your other post, and I think it would be best if you didn’t make a decision just yet and shopped around some more. The beaded one the hive chose is the nicest, but it doesn’t sound like you are happy with that. Keep shopping for more options!

    Im saying neither too. The ball gown looks like a prom dress and I really dislike pickups and colored sashes. If you need something else, I would keep looking. If youre looking for something affordable, Alfred Angelo, Mori Lee, Allure, Jasmine, Casablanca and so many others, they all have dresses that are very affordable. DB isnt the only option!

    I think that if you don’t like that beaded gown (which looks lovely on you!), you’d look awesome in a tea length dress, especially with a cute pair of vintage pumps.
