    I love them both. The first is more traditionally “bridal” and might look better with a birdcage…I picture a sleeker look, like just a fascinator or something, with the second one. A birdcage could work, but you’d have to be very careful that it wasn’t too poofy.

    I think that the sweetheart top of the Mikaella is GORGEOUS, better than the Pronovias. I do like the skirt of the Pronovias (I’m bias though – my dress is a pronovias!) better – but I think overall, the Mikaella is stunning!

    I can’t answer because I would have to see them both on you to make my decision. They are both very nice and although the same, they are also completely different.

    The first one looks like a wedding dress to me. The second looks like a really nice bridesmaid’s dress. Both are really nice but I much prefer the first!

    Both are beautiful dresses, but I love your dress better.  Seriously!  I can totally picture it with a birdcage veil…keep it and you made the right decision πŸ™‚

    I love the first one, but it is mostly because I love the sweetheart neckline.

    I voted for the second one…mostly because that was my dress.  I loved it and so did all my guests πŸ™‚  Having said that though, you shouldn’t second guess yourself.  Your first instincts were probably the right ones.  Here is a picture of me in it (simply because I’m a real person, not a model…sometimes it’s easier to get a feel for the dress when it’s not on the models).  You will look fabulous no matter which dress you wear! πŸ™‚

    You made the right decision for sure! It’s so soft and romantic, and it’s both sexy and girly. The other dress is very simple like you said, it’s more of the fabric that’s fabulous. Go with the one you are getting πŸ™‚ For jewelry, I think it would be lovely with a pearl necklace maybe with one of those flowers off to the side:

    definitely the mikaella! it looks softer and more romantic. the pronovias one looks a bit stiff to me.

    My dress is the Mikaella 1406 as well! I love love love it. I would have to disagree about a necklace though. I know personally when I have the dress on it looks better without anything around my neck…sort of makes me look slimmer actually.

     I’m still looking for the right jewelry to wear as well, but from what I have at home it looks like I’m going to go with a matching or coordinating set of earrings and bracelet. I’m thinking of finding some peices that have a mix of pearl and rhinstone/crystals. Here are some photos I have used for “inspiration,” hopefully they can help give you some ideas too πŸ™‚
