Back again after buying “THE” dress and am grateful for your opinions and support on my long hunt for the dress here. I was about to buy Alfred Angelo 8516 but kept hesitating, and thinking about the inspiration dress that I was unable to locate in person.
Well, I got a phonecall from Nordstroms bridal suite that the designer sent me a sample!! I was extremely excited for the possibility of seeing it person just to reassure myself that the Alfred Angelo 8516 was the right choice.
Well, I firmly believed I would not get a “feeling” many brides get when they find the one… but when I put the inspiration gown on I got goosebumps before even seeing myself. It is everything I ever dreamed (had the support I needed that the Alfred Angelo gowns lacked).
Do you think I made the right choice purchasing this dress instead of the Alfred Angelo 8516?
Option 1 – my inspiration gown (that I purchased):
Option 2 Alfred Angelo 8516 from previous post that I had hesitations about:

A little hard to tell from your pictures… but from what I can see, the dress you bought has a more classy and bridal look. Something about the AA looks a bit cheap… you totally made the right choice!

@thunderberry: thank you! You know, thinking back I really do agree with you. I think maybe the embellishment on one side or the way the floral appliques lay doesn’t look as high quality. The gown I chose was a no-brainer and definitely higher quality (and cost haha) but I am extremely grateful for your unbiased opinions. 🙂 If I can get more pictures while at work ill try and post!

I think we’d need some full body standing pics to really give an accurate opinion…

I like number 1 from what I can see because it looks more romantic to me.

@Westwood: Really wish I had more, I was facetiming so much I forgot to get pictures taken… I really don’t have good quality shots but I hope it gives a better idea.
Option 1: Not buttoned all the way in back after adjusting clips ergh sorry..

Oh I voted for
#1 before seeing the pics. From the pics I like the 2nd but it may be because of how the dress is falling at the bottom in your first picture.

@loveduck: It is tricky to tell cause I can’t see the whole dress in both the pictures but I like the first one better. In the second one all I see is boobs…..not saying boobs are bad, we all have them, they’re assets, gotta love our boobs, but the first one has a kind of elegance I don’t see in the second.
