Please help me pick the dress!! I love them both but I’m having a really hard time deciding. The wedding will be in Costa Rica in May; we haven’t yet decided if it’ll be on the beach but the ceremony will be outdoors with the possibility of the reception being indoors. My worry is that the Esmirna will be too heavy and too hot for an outdoor wedding. Thanks.

I agree–the Esmirna will be too hot outdoors in Costa Rica. I tried on Fanal, which is similar in fabric, and I was sweating like a pig in the air conditioned bridal store. :-/ I like the La Sposa better!

The dress in the top picture is so beautiful and fits your perfectly 🙂 I would definitely go with that one 🙂

They are both beautiful, however the first one just screams “this is it” to me. It is gorgeous.

I agree with you that the Esmirna would be too hot.. That’s a lot of satin/silk satin/heavy material! I also just love the La Sposa.. it’s so gorgeous!

I am a huuuge fan of lace and layers, so i love the second. i think it is more unique than the first, and you look great!

I can imagine the Esmirna would be very hot. The Madeira looks great so I would go with that one!

I got confused as to which dress was which name … I like the bottom one best 🙂

I would have to say the top dress!! especially if your in the sand… the lace on the other one might be hard to get the sand out of the lace ahhhh!!!

they both fit you perfectly! look at your hour-glass-shaped body! i voted for the san patrick one because i feel the other one has too much details and doesn’t look “clean”.

I absolutely adore the first one, oh my god that neckline is to die for! I actually think they both look way too hot for a Costa Rica wedding. Is there any way to get either of them made in a lighter-weight fabric, or eliminate some of the layers underneath? I think you could get away with that in the first, but not the second.
