    You have the perfect figure for the Gemma!  The Gemma may be popular on wedding websites, but I haven’t seen a ‘real’  bride I know wear that gown, and I think it’s been around for almost 4 years!

    @sunflwr816: The Gemma hands down. You look amazing, it’s perfect on you, made for you infact.

    Gemma, without a doubt.  It flatters your figure and looks fantastic on you!

    It’s really tricky to say when one is 3 sizes off. They both look amazing though — so how did they make you feel?

    Also, I have no problem with used products. It saves you buttloads of money, as long as you have a chance to check the product out first.

    Since the Liana is three sizes too big, the Gemma looks much better on you. Still, I absolutely love the Liana. The skirt in the second photo is to die for!

    The Gemma fits you like a glove. I feel like the ballgown is overwhelming and doesn’t show off your figure.

    @sunflwr816:  I voted the mermaid because you are getting married in the summer months. I realize all wedding dresses are hot but it just looks like it would be less heavy. Either dress you can’t go wrong with. They are both gorgeous!

    The gemma wins! Hands down.
    Omgoodness you look sooo good in that dress. I think it goes very well with your decor, much better then the ball gown actually.  Also, I would have no problem wearing a used dress and I don;t think it is over played.

    I say go for your dream dress. You own it!

    Both are beautiful but I think the Vera Wang is more appropriate for an outdoor ceremony. Your figure looks amazing in it!! And there’s nothing wrong with preowned if the quality hasn’t been affected. Congrats on finding two amazing dresses!!

    I think the waist on the ballgown falls on a really bad spot for you. I feel like the bodice should be 2-3″ longer?

    But the Gemma looks INCREDIBLE on you!

    Love love love the Gemma but I think anything in that shape would look great on you.  Very flattering.  Have you consider a lower price dress that is similar?  How about Maggie Sottero Primrose?  Divina?

    @sunflwr816:  The ballgown is sweet, but mermaid is definitely awesome with your body type. Maybe you could just find a less expensive mermaid. I don’t think it’s necessarily the Gemma that makes you look so good, it’s the dress shape.
