I think I may have found the dress! I posted on here before looking for opinions on dresses – and I’m back again since I went dress shopping this weekend.
I have wanted something with light flowy fabric and a sweetheart neckline – but I’ve struggled a bit to find the “right” dress that is both “me” and flattering – i.e. doesn’t make me look bulky up top. When I went dress shopping I found that I really liked two dresses – but they were a bit different – one was a silk georgette and the other was a taffeta. I am definitely leaning toward one, but I need your opinion – which do you like better – dress 1, dress 2, or keep looking? (apologies if the pics are huge)

This is a hard one! Dress 1 looks a lot more flowy, fun, and comfortable but dress 2 looks more like a wedding gown. Both look great though 🙂

Ok, you look amazing in both, but I chose dress #1 as it just looks so dreamy. I also do not like tafeta as a material, so that may have also had a part in my decision!
You can’t go wrong though, either way!

They both look beautiful on you. Tough decision. I keep going back & forth! I agree with the PP, you can’t go wrong either way.

I like them both! Maybe you coudl tell us more about your wedding vision and the venue to get a better idea of which would look better!

Monk6552: I don’t think you will go wrong with either one! I voted for the flowy chiffon because I think it hits you at the waist better and I like the fluted detail on the side. Might also be because I was between a taffeta and a chiffon dress and post wedding I wished I’d picked the chiffon……

You look beautiful in both dresses, but I chose dress 1. It’s so unique, dreamy, and romantic, while being chic and classy. That said, you can’t go wrong.

I think dress one is a bit flowier and more romantic looking, and I really love the soft draping detail at the waist.

I honestly can’t decide! You look amazing and beautiful in both, and they are both just different…. Ahhh! I think I am going with #1 because I like the soft lines… So romantic!

Thanks so much for all of your feedback! This is super helpful.
MissLibra: My venue isn’t exactly on the fancy side – but I plan to do as much possible design wise to dress it up and make it “me”. It’s the top floor of a restaurant in DC that overlooks a canal – the interior is light wood, with some brick details – so I guess sort of a rustic/industrial chic – which is NOT my taste ironically.
I am getting uplighting to bathe the room in color (probably a pink/purple tone). Going with a purple table cloth and (likely) low centerpieces of shades of purple, light greens, and white, likely surrounded by gold mercury votives. I definitely have a bit of a unique style and I love color and flowers. I guess if I had describe my “vision” it’s sort of a unique, whimsical, fun twist on classic. I uploaded a pic of a bouquet that has been my inspiration for color palette.

I like Dress One because it has this ‘Greek Goddess’ thing going for it. Both are beautiful and very flattering, but I like the first better.

Monk6552: That sounds stunning! Hearing all that, I think either dress would work really. In my opinion, the first would do a better job fitting into the whimsical and fun look you are going for. The second look is more formal to me, and would be better suited in a ballroom setting. I think the flowy material in the first dress is so romantic!

dress one for sure! it’s so beautiful and unique. it looks lovely on your figure.

Dress 1 is gorgeous on you. Not a fan of the second, but that’s more because of the fabric – I really don’t like taffeta. To me it alaws looks like wrinkled parachute material.

For me, it was no contest. I immediately loved number 1 on you. Number 2 looks stiff, and you said you wanted something flowy.
