Both are gorgeous dresses. I slightly favour your dress because I’m a sucker for long trains .. your dress was only clipped with two clips, not five as in the second lot of pics so that will certainly make a difference. Your dress doesn’t seem to fit so well around the bust but I’m certain it will after alterations.  Plus a mermaid  slip will definitely liven up the hem and train.

When it’s all said and done though, if you don’t think you can be happy in this dress, you’ll almost certainly be able to sell it for a good price.

Either way, you’ll look beautiful! Best of luck with your decision 🙂

I love the dress that you brought.  It still looks raw in the shape and form and alterations will make a world of a differences when it comes to fitting your form and shaping your sillouette. I will think you will love it more than the second one when all is done and to me is more bridal.  I like the bright ivory on your skin also.

Laurelbee:  I also like your dress better!  Add a fluffy thing and find an alterations place that you’re confident in!

Your dress is gorg!! I think a mermaid slip would give you the look you want, too. 

And like janereaction said, you only have 2 clips vs. 5. Look how low the clips go down the back, that’s what’s giving it the more “severe” mermaid look. 🙂
