Hi bees, I know i have over a year to go before my wedding but my local bridal tore has a sale on the one of the dresses that i have been eyeing off (sale ends in a week) so question is which dress do you like better?
Dress #1: Mancini
Dress #2: Nicolina This dress is 2-3 sizes too small so it bunches at my stomach. It will fit the same as the Mancini dress though
EDIT: Dress two doesnt fit thats why the top doesnt have the hourglass like the other dress. it will when i get the dress in my size.
If you pick option Neither please explain why?

Personally I would keep looking, but you should add a poll.

@Pokemon: Dress #1! It looks so gorgeous on you. Your body looks amazing in the dress too. Dress #2 is really pretty, but the is something about the frilly-ness of the skirt of the dress that I find kind of cheapens the look of the dress. You should definitely add a poll.

i love the fit of #1 but i am not a fan of the bottom of either dress.
don’t buy your dress just b/c it’s on sale. you will have dress regret. you should love the dress, not just the price.

@mypinkshoes: This is fantastic advice!

I really like what #1 does for your figure. I agree with @mypinkshoes, if you are only buying because of a sale then you should wait. I bought my first dress because it was more than a steal and it ended up making me sad that it wasnt my dream dress and was just a waste of money.

@mypinkshoes: Its not because of the price. I have been looking at this dress since before i was engaged. but when i went to get sized today to pay for it, i tried on two other dresses to reconfirm that i wanted this style and this colour (its ivory) but i also really loved the other dress i tried on too. hence the poll.

With the fit of dress one… I like the softness of dress two (the bottom is just so stiff and rough looking on dress one) but I’m really just choosing between the two.

Thanks guys. I know the style isnt loved by everyone, but it is the style i like, so people saying to keep looking is it because of the style, fit, colour?

@Pokemon: Probably just personal taste.. But dont worry.. Get your dream dress 🙂 I think the first one looks very nice on your figure 🙂

Dress 1 is actually very similar to the style of my dress so that is why I voted for it! Ask yourself if you can see yourself walking down the aisle in this dress and if the answer is no then keep looking!

I like the second one better =)

I almost bought a sale dress more than once, but in the end paying LESS for my sample gown and it is my dream dress! You don’t want to look back on your photos and say, “hey, that’s my dress that I paid less than $1000 for! but I didn’t really like it.”
I’m really not a fan either, and I can tell just by your post that neither of those dresses gave you the feeling that a Bride should have in her wedding dress. Keep looking babe, there’s more dresses out there!

I like the first one better out of the two- your figure looks great!- but are you buying one of them because you love it or because its on sale? Say to yourself…. “would I buy this dress at full price or if it was even double?” If you absolutly love it you probably would- if not maybe consider still shopping around.
I am just not a fan of the bottom of the dresses…especially the tulle.

It might be because dress #1 is the correct size, but I think dress #1 is the most flattering on you. I like the sweetheart neckline and the details on dress #1. If you love it and it’s on sale, then it sounds like a deal to me! 🙂
