    @patchy:  Aaaaaaaaaand, I just realized I votde for A-line when  I didn’t mean to. I had a brain fart about what an A-line is. I like the dress either way, but I was thinking A-line was what you wanted, which I can now clearly see that the dress comes an A-line and you want to alter it into a trumpet. Hello! I really do pay more attention than this, I swear. So at least one vote for A-line was accidental.

    I chose better in the new dress, but actually both dresses are beautiful and suit you. However it sounds like the new dress is better because your FI will prefer it and it is a reasonable price.

    I am biased towards the second one anyway as I prefer non-strapless dresses and I love lace details Smile

    I also voted for A-Line, but I meant I like the new dress better with the modified bottom. So I’m not sure if I voted wrong, but the photoshopped one gets my pick!

    I love your new dress! I’m a big fan of “fluffy” dresses myself and don’t normally like mermaid/trumpet/fit and flare shapes at all but I have to agree with your FH, that’s definitely a shape for you! You look wonderful in your new dress, your old one hid your beautiful figure and it’s so lovely it would be a shame to hide it 😉 

    Oh, and I’m seriously impressed with your photoshop skills 😀

    Ooooooooh I love the neckline on the new dress! I think whatever the shape of the bottom is it will be perfect but I do slightly prefer the more trumpet shape.

    @patchy:  ok. My honest opinion is that I think they are both beautiful. When I saw the “new” one on you, I actually thought it was a stock photo because it looked so great on you (and on your model-esque figure).

    HOWEVER, having said that… Your FI probably said he wants something more fitted/mermaid solely it because it is sexier. My FI told me the same thing. When I pried for more information, it sounded like he wanted me in something in a more “Jessica Rabbit” hourglass than “Cinderella” ballgown. That could be totally off base for you. If that is the case, though, I would not venture to say that the “new” one you have created is any sexier than the old one…. Maybe even less sexy. I don’t want to sound harsh, because I actually think it IS a classier dress than your old one… Just maybe too much so. While I think it’s beautiful, I could see a man’s man (mine) possibly even thinking it’s a little matronly due to the cut, lace, etc. 

    Remember that men are not as in tune to fashion as we women are. So, they don’t tend to appreciate some of the same details in clothing that we may be gaga over. And, I genuinely do think that could be the case here. I vote to def stick with a fitted trumpet style (made for your body!), but either do without the lace panel, or keep looking.

    @patchy:  well, you will be beautiful no matter what! The old dress is gorgeous, but it sounds like the new one will be closer to what your FI and you are *both* wanting. So, I think it’s a great compromise!

    I think your old dress was amazing, however your new dress (idea) is very pretty as well! 🙂
