I recently found my dream bodice but I’m not sure about the skirt. It comes with a hoop underneath as well as layers of crinoline that I would take out to make it less poofy but I’m wondering if I should maybe have another skirt made for it.
I’m having a destination wedding in one of the hottest months in Costa Rica so I rather not have such a full skirt. The second picture that I’ve attached is an Alfred Sung dress and has a bit nicer of a fit but I have been told by a couple people that they think the boob area is too poofy.
Any suggestions of which dress looks nicer and whether I should consider adding a new skirt to the Topaz dress or if it would look nice with all the layers taken out?

I love the second dress. I’m not a fan of poofy skirts, so the second one is more my speed. I don’t think the detail on the bust is too much, I think it’s georgeous; I think I like the bodice on the second dress better than the first, but that’s just my opinion. Maybe you could post a side view of the second dress, if you have one? That might give us a better idea of the poofiness factor of the bust.

WHAT!?!?! Everyones crazy!!
I LOVE!!!! NUMBER ONE!!
The pictures don’t speak for how beautiful this dress is (although the shape is stunning on you)
the 2nd dress is good, dont get me wrong but you can wear a dress like this in any other color to a christmas party or special event.
Your wedding (and prom) is the only time where you can be over the top and wear whatever you want. Unless you’re famous it is unlikily you are going to go to an event where you can wear a sheer corset with swarvoski crystals on it and a huge big skirt. The manufactoring in this dress is amazing for the price… This is as close as it gets to a pnina for 2000 or under… there are some other beautiful sheer corset tops by eve of milady that run about 4000 but the quality in those are equal to this and you can save yourself 2000!!!!
Just rememeber this is your day and you only have one (hopefully)! get what you love and not what other people say. The only person who should be happy is you and that will make your finacee just as happy.
