    @Jewelieee:  Right now the pronovias looks better because it fits your body. However, I see the potential in the Essence and I think that it will blow the pronovias out of the water once it is altered!

    I love LOVE the top of the Essence of Australia, but not the bottom.  Too shiny.  I love the way the Pronovias fits on you, but it is a bit plain.  Can you dress it up with some sparkles?  Both are beautiful on you!

    @Jewelieee:  I was going to say the Essence until you said it was taffeta. If you go with the Pronovias then why not try a blinged sash, or have someone add some bling?

    I think the Essense gown would be beautiful for chateau wedding. I find the crumbcatcher neckline of the Pronovias a bit dated, to be honest.

    @Jewelieee:  I prefer the Essense for a chateau wedding, too. The back is to die for and the bodice and neckline very flattering. I have seen this dress in person and it didn’t look cheap to me.

    I don’t really like the neckline of the first one, plus the waistline is too low and adding bulk around the lower abdomen (if you could raise the waistline, I would like it more).

    @Jewelieee:  assuming that you can get that 2nd dress altered to fit you, it is fab. the first one is veyr nice, though, I like it. But that 2nd one, yowza!

    @Jewelieee:  I love the classic elegance of the Pronovias and if you want to do something to add some pizzazz I’d do a blingy sash.

    @Jewelieee:  Tough choice! I prefer the first dress…I love the neckline and the ‘grandness’ of the train. The second one is beautiful but I’m not liking the satin skirt…too much contrast to the vintage glamour of the top.

    I voted pronovias because it fits perfectly with your shape 🙂 I also thing it’s more winter like than the other dress. I just dont know how a vintage dress can fit in your wedding venue at a chateaux, just can’t picture it. I also like the first one more because its more classy and elegant and would go great with a chateaux wedding 🙂 hope that helps and good luuck

    I like the 1st dress because I think it flatters your shape better than the 2nd and because you feel the quality is better in the 1st. I’ll admit that the first looks a bit more plain, but the “architectural-ness” of the first makes it stand on its own. It’s unique and classic at the same time. A great choice in my opinion!

    I like Essense more. If you decide to with with Essense, I’d suggest to clarify the price of alterations because with all that beading it might be very pricy.
