So, trying on a ton of gorgeous dresses = amazingly fun. I have a favorite, but just out of curiousity, I thought I’d poll y’all (on my first post, no less) too! Any thoughts on which dress looks better? And yes, I do make that face in real life.

I really like the second dress on you! You look beautiful!

They are both beautiful! The back on the JH is STUNNING. But–and please don’t take offense–I do think your tattoo might take away from it a little bit. I say choose the one that makes you feel the most bridal 🙂

The second one looks better on you as-is, but it’s hard to say how the first one would fit you if correctly altered. Right now, the torso fit is off, and the cut of the dress looks like it makes it hard to clip you in to see what the correct fit would look like. Might be great, but you just can’t tell right now. The dress itself is awesome, though.

Thanks for the feedback! And @bikinihoneymoon, I’m not offended by reference to my tattoo, especially since I just had a very long conversation with my mom about whether it was acceptable to have a tattoo show in wedding dress 🙂

@tigerloo: OK good! So are you going to leave us hanging on which one is your favorite???

Yeah, so my favorite is definitely not the crowd favorite…but I am okay with swimming upstream! I love the keyhole back and the v-neck on the Jim Hjelm dress, so it’s my number one pick at the moment. I’m not such a fan of the price tag, though!

I love the PoB dress so much that it is giving me serious dress envy!!!

LOVE the POB on you, gives you an amazing silhouette.

The second suits you perfectly, I really like it on you!

The first one is my fave dress, but the second one is my fave of these pictures. I’m with historienne, the fit on the sample is just not great on you. I think it’ll look amazing with alterations! Good luck with your final pick!

@tigerloo: I love that one. I think once its taylored to fit you it will be even better. I think the other is so similar to so many other dresses, but your favorite is all you!

I voted for dress 2 only because (1) you’re not making “that face”, and (2) it fits better when the photos were taken.
Having said that, I actually thought that dress 1 would suit your figure better *when it’s altered*.
You have a great back and lean figure, and dress 1 will show that off more. Dress 2 is very pretty, but isn’t “gasp worthy.”
You made the right choice.
