    @candydots: OMG it has to be A. It’s devine on you. It’s so beautiful on you, everything about it suits you, especially the dipped neckline and dropped waistline. You look like a princess. Let us know which one you pick.

    I think option B looks awesome on you. But I must say that both dresses look lovely!!!

    No question–Option A is AMAZING!

    And while you wouldn’t need the corset for the DB dress, you would need the slip!

    Dress B really flatters your figure! Both dresses are beautiful

    I voted for Dress A. I think it’s a prettier dress than Dress B, and it looks fantastic on you!

    I don’t like how dress A makes your waist look – the waist is too dropped in my opiniong and I personally do not think that the straight across neckline is working for you – you still look lovely in it though! I love dress B and think that is is perfect for you!!

    I love dress b! but the only thing about it is the one sholder look is not timeless its trendy! But thats a personal choice I tend to go for really classic looks!  You look stunning in both! I have now been to about 6 stores and tried on 60 to 80 dresses am still unsure! Im starting to think its normal!

    I prefer dress A.

     

    As far as the slip/longline bra DB put you in –

    Since DB dresses tend to be more affordable, they don’t have a lot of the support/structure/foundation built into them that more expensive dresses have. That is why with most DB dresses a bride needs to wear a longline bra and slip – to help shape the dress and the bride’s body.

    When you get dresses that have a bit more money put into the construction, they’ve got more boning, more structured bust areas, stronger seams, more layers of tulle for poofy-ness, etc – this lessens (or even eliminates) the need for that foundation layer that DB dresses all but require.

    Dress A for sure. I feel like dress B you are chopped and look short.

    @candydots:  Yeah or add a second one! Thats what I would do with it! If you dont love either dress keep looking! I dont know where you live or the area but the first place I have found dresses I like is at a tiny store by appt only . You work with the owner directly when you walk in she locks the door and its your own store! this helped me think clearly and helped her think just about you! Laughing When I found the store I thought there was no way I would be able to afford a dress from such great store but their dresses range from 500 to $3000! My $1800 budget is completly possible!! I found my store and I know my dress is in there i already have my second appointment set up! 

    You will find your dress if these arnt them keep looking!!!!!
