    MKElsnerEST6.27.15:   The Karena Royale with a sweetheart neckline gets my vote!  I tried on that dress during my search and it is truly stunning.  

    The folds over the left hip of the other dress just aren’t doing it for me….

    But of course you have to totally LOVE the dress you choose.

    MKElsnerEST6.27.15:  I didn’t read your whole post so I’m not sure which dress you already have but the lace one (first pic) wins hands down. It is not a competition. So I hope that’s the one you got 😉

    MKElsnerEST6.27.15:  The first one hands down. Your shape ain’t no joke in that dress. It looks awesome on you! I had a similar experience as yours. before going dress shopping I asked FI what his preference was for my dress, and he said he wasn’t really into the puffy bottoms. Well, his request coupled with the fact that I was so excited to find a beautiful, non puffy, dress on my first visit to David’s Bridal caused me to say yes to a very beautiful dress.  I didn’t have dress regret, but something in my subconcious mind knew that my dream dress was in fact puffy at the bottom. Long story short, I ended up swapping out my DB Collection for a Galina Signature puffy bottom dress. I know he will love it as much as I do when he sees me in it. No matter what, you have to feel beautiful in it or you won’t be truly happy!

    I’m actually not a big fan of the shape of the first one. I think it makes you look broad up top whereas the second one balances u out. maybe it will look better w a sweetheart? But truthfully, maybe neither is the one. You should wait until ur dress arrives and then decide, you still have so much time.

    MKElsnerEST6.27.15:  I totally get where your coming from and have almost the same story! My FI had make comments about not liking lace dresses, I specifically told my consultant at the salon NO lace and guess what I ended up loving… a lace fit-n-flare full of sparkle from every angle. I talked myself out of it and ended up buying a tulle ballgown but could never get that sparkly lace out of my head. Now 5 months out from my wedding I went back and got the lace dress and couldn’t be happier! I would suggest waiting for your dress and if after having it for a little bit you still feel something is missing you’ll know for sure!

    I gasped at the first.  Love it.  The second one adds width.

    Yep. The first one. Hands down.

    I would stop listening to everyone else and just be happy with the dress you have in your mind. Because you’re thinking about your wedding. They’re thinking about you, in that dress now, as they see it in the picture. They don’t get your big picture and therefore can’t really make the best judgments.

    Just my opinion 🙂

    I love the Lorie on you! The first dress would have been great with a sweetheart neckline, and personally I’m not a fan of taffeta/satin ballgowns. The Lorie looks like my dress too! I’m sure your FI will hardly notice the lace, or he will forget why he disliked it in the first place! You look stunning.

    I’m a little biased because my dress is ther Karena Royae with an altered sweetheart neckline but I love the karena and the Lorie on you!! I’m not a fan of the second one. It’s so easy to second guess yourself with bridal decisions but go with your gut 🙂

    PS: I do like the ivory over champagne with your skin tone more than the ivory over ivory but that’s just my preference. Either will look stunning

    You look beautiful in all three…any decision is the right one! I know how you feel because my fiance has an opinion, too…only he said the dress MUST be lace and not a poofy princess dress. He also requested lace sleeves…a request which I ignored because I know I look best in strapless and I don’t particularly want to be hot and itchy on my wedding day. His opinion is important, but ultimately YOU are the one wearing the dress. If you want lace, wear it. He will love you in it. I love the dress you bought and can’t really compare it to the lace dress–but of the two lace dresses, I like the second one better. The neckline and color are more flattering.

    I really love the Lorie on you. I like the sweetheart neckline, and the more dramatic skirt – both very flattering elements. I like the idea of a ballgown on you too, but I think the Pronovias is too heavy, and the design is a bit dated to be very honest.
