    I think both would be gorgeous! It totally depends what look you are going for (what the theme of your wedding is, where you are getting married, etc)- more formal or more organic and flowy! Personally, I like the first option, as long as the V isn’t too deep like you said! 🙂

    Personally not a fan of either, the V is too deep in my opinion in the first one, and I’m not keen on the second, but it would look great if you closed up the V in the first one 🙂

    I quite like #1. I love the design for the bust from the magazine! (That dress is STUNNING!) & I think the shortened waist would look great on you! But like Foolsintherain said- I think either could work depening on what your looking for. I really really like the structured look for some brides!

    This is the easiest question ever!! I’ve ALWAYS OBSESSED OVER that Elie Saab dress you showed!! that dress is gorgeous and has always been my dream! If ever I was making a custom dress it’d have to have that top! it’s gorgeous!! And I can see it’ll totally suit you because the first dress picture you showed (which I thought was gorgeous btw) totally suited you and the top is sort of similar.


    I hope you post pictures once it’s done 🙂

    I think the first dress you designed is prettier. However, I think you need more structure because in the 2nd dress you posted a picture of, it showed your figure so much better.  I think you will lose it in the first dress.  Go with the 2nd one.

    I think with the flowy dress having a band around your waist, like that first picture, or some sort of sash will define your waist and make you look small! 

     I’m kinda a plus sized bride (street size 14- bridal 16), and wearing a similar style. Sometimes, I do regret not getting a dress that was fitted through the hips to be more figure flattering, but a natural band around the waistline can be flattering (in my opinion)- for reference here is my dress (two sizes too big and not clipped in the back)
