Just for a bit of background the ceremony will be outdoors by the beach (not on it). Reception will be indoors, but also right by the beach. I really like dress 1, but not sure if the long train is reasonable for an outdoor ceremony!! I will also probably get dress 1 altered to have more of a mermaid shape.
Other things to note. Dress 1 has buttons down the back (which I prefer), dress 2 has a corset back… not a fan and it sounds like it can get expensive to change it to buttons.
Any input would be much appreciated! Thank you in advance :D.

HartXoXo: I love the back of dress one but the fit of dress 2 is amazing on you.

I like the look, fit, neckline, & lace better of dress #2. But, I know that they have dresses out there like dress #2 with buttons. I would keep looking until you find “exactly” what you’re wanting.

HartXoXo: I prefer dress #1. I know it’s not perfectly fitted to you, but because of the type of lace, it looks bulky to me.

Dress #2 with buttons! They are out there…you just need to find it. 🙂

It sounds like you like dress #1 better. I think it’d look just as good as dress #2 if you altered it to a sweetheart- would you do that?
I don’t think you need to be worried about the length of the train on dress #1 at all (sounds like that’s the only thing holding you back). I had a longer train (enzoani dakota) & my entire ceremony and reception and dancing were outside. It looked spectacular.

Thank you guys! I agree – I like the sweetheart and shape of dress 2, but for some reason dress 1 feels more elegant. I am having trouble finding one dress that I LOVE. I have tried on 30+ dresses. Feels like I still haven’t tried on anything that has all of the things I want!

Both are quite beautiful! I think dress 2 is a little more fitting for an outdoor ceremony because it’s lighter material at the bottom. I think a sash or belt would really pull it all together nicely for dress 2! You can’t go wrong either way though. =]

I prefer dress two, and I am getting my dress changed from a corset to buttons and was quoted $100 for that change from 4 different seamstresses in 3 different states (one in the midwest, one in NY, and 2 in PA)
