I had narrowed it down to three dresses and today I think I am down to two! My venue is in Texas, with the ceremony under a very large tree and reception in a rustic barn.
The first dress is from Bijou, a store not in Texas, so less likely someone would have the dress. The designer is exclusive to that store. The sampe dress is a size 16, so it was quite large on me!
Second dress is the Maggie Sotero Suzette, ivory over light gold. I would have a custom sash.
On the Bijou dress, I would extend the satin covered buttons to where the “poofy” part starts and on the Suzette, I would add satin buttons to the end of the train.

@surfsandsun06: Gosh, honestly, I love them both on you! I love #1 because the skirt feels super unique, but I love #2 because of the shape it gives your figure! I don’t think you can go wrong whichever way you choose. Based on my own personal preference, I’d go with #2 but that’s just me. Go with your heart! 😀

Not a fan of the bottom of the first, so I voted number 2.

Love them both! I pick #2, though. The details in the first one don’t seem to photograph as well as the details in the second one. And I like the classic elegance of the second one.

@surfsandsun06: I don’t think you will go wrong with either one. I voted for the Bijou, because I like the sash and bit of bling at the waist.

@surfsandsun06: I like the first because it’s beautiful and so unique. The second one is nice but it looks like 1,000 other bridal gowns out there.

Also interesting that people either love or hate the skirt on the first dress! Too bad I can’t have one for the ceremony and one for the reception!!
