    To be honest, I like the poofier one on you better… but maybe its just because i like poofy gowns myself. I like that it has little floral details which would go with your garden wedding. Yeah, i just looked at the photos again, and although I can’t really give you a better reason than the one I just gave you, i still like the Chardonnay better ๐Ÿ™‚

    I’m sort of struggling with this too… our ceremony is probably going to be in the woods (no joke, it’s a youth camp amphitheater, dirt path and all!), and I was so concerned that my long train would collect all kinds of sticks and leaves and things… After I talked to a super helpful girl at our local bridal boutique, I was reassured that it’s my wedding and I can do whatever I want! She mentioned to just make sure I had a good dry cleaner! I am in love with tulle, and the Chardonnay is just gorgeous, especially on you. I also REALLY like your hair btw, it’s beautiful! If you want to wear the poofy gown, just go for it! I don’t see any problem with it in an outdoor setting!

    I really, really like the lace one… and I am not one for lacy gowns, but its looks absolutely stunning on you! Off topic but your hair colour and slight curl is beautiful! (lucky girl lol)

    You look lovely in both of them, and both of them would go with your venue. My suggestion is, because you still have a little bit of time, to go try on some more gowns. Take these pictures with you to show the sales people, so they know your dilemma. I am sure you can find one that combines the elements of both into one gown.

    @BrideD: I can’t vote…you look great in either dress ๐Ÿ™‚ Two completely different looks, and they both would work for your venue. Are you ready to spend more $$ on a 2nd dress? Honestly, your original dress is dreamy and romantic, and that train is gorgeous. So I just voted #2! Good luck with your decision.

    I like the Karena on you. But it you want a ball gown, I think keep looking. The bodice skirt connections seems to cut you off and isn’t as flattering as the first dress. Still very pretty, like your mom said win win, but if you aren’t sure try more on, I’m not sure if that’s still an option, but I hope you feel great about your dress!

    @BrideD: Ooooo, your last comment says you should totally keep looking! If you try on more dresses then you will probably be comparing all of the new ones you try on with one of these, and then you’ll know which one is your favorite… and if you don’t, then maybe you’ll find the one in one of the new ones!
