So I have a dilema,
I bought my Pronovias Urda dress which I LOVE and will be perfect for my outdoorsy rustic wedding in the moutains…but my reception is at the beach and I fell in love with an Ines Di Santo gown that would look awesome there….so my question is….which one?????? Or dare I become a 2 dress bride and do both?!
Farm Ceremony: upcountry, lace, burlap, blushes, peaches, tans, cowboy boots, rustic touches, wood grain, mason jars
Beach reception: ocean, seashells, vintage, lanterns, candles, driftwood, succulents, tuberrose, blush roses, art deco
Ines Di Santo

oh my god you just look so amazing in the first one that I can’t even consider the second one.

I vote both 🙂 but if you can only fit one in the budget then I think the Pronovias is gorgeous on you

If it’s in your budget and you love it that much, I say go for it and wear two dresses! Otherwise, I think the Pronovias would be lovely for a beach reception!

The first dress looks amazing on you!! The second dress is really cool and funky, and I love it. I’d say get both, but they have very similar silhouettes! I like it when the ceremony & reception dresses are very different.

First one is WAY way better! You look amazing in it, I feel like the line cutting through the second one would be less flattering. Plus, they’re very similar to bother with a costume change.

@bee1000: The 2 dresses are too similar, so I chose the Pronovias. And to be quite honest, the Pronovias looks more bridal and is super flattering on you. The other dress looks like an evening gown that got mixed with a night gown. (Not loving the sheer skirt.) If you want your dress to look less formal for your reception, how about dressing it down with a whimsical floral/tulle/organza sash? Something like this:

Thanks for all your help guys! This photo is of a real bride with my body type/measurements to see what the second one would look like on me….seems to be an overwhelming response to the first dress (which warms my heart seeing as I already bought that one )! I know the second one is a bit different, it has a blush underlay and the lace pattern is really unique….I guess that’s why I was stuck on it for a reception dress, a bit of color, a bit sheerer, a bit sexier, and more of a party/evening dress…but has the same silhouette that I already know works for me…haha.

They are both stunning, and I have a feeling you would look gorgeous in just about anything! I think the Pronovias will look great in both settings. Since the silhouette and feel of the dresses are so similar, I would say just wear the Pronovias. Good luck and congratulations! 🙂

@bee1000: I adore the Ines! It is breathtaking! As I am a Hawaii bride too, I think I understand exactly what you are saying better than some whose weddings were extremely different. The Ines is a PERFECT Hawaii dress. I feel like you in that gown will set and enhance the ambiance of the entire wedding! I say be a two dress bride, or try to sell the pronovias and get the Ines. The Pronovias is very beautiful, but it is also a far more popular/ typical dress and should be very easy to sell.

@Bazingau: My thoughts EXACTLY! I vote for the first dress
