    Personally I would keep your oiginal dress. The 2nd dress to me is to prom looking.

    ^ exactly. The first one is VERY original – I’ve never seen anything like it before, and it’s very classic and stunning. The second one looks like a prom dress. You were right with your first choice!

    First off the sillohouette on the first dress looks fab on you. The second dress is kind of awkard where the black top and the white bottom meet.  I think red roses would be beautiful.  Since you are already breaking away from the cabin theme with your dress I don’t see the point in having your flowers tie in with that said theme.  You should just do roses in red, the color that you love. Good luck with everything!

    The second dress just looks heavy to me. I vote for first one!

    I like the first one on you very much. It’s got your black and white, and is delicate with a classic, elegant silhouette. And you know, I do picture that one in a woodsy/natural setting as your cabin. Those *are* flowers and leaves in the black embroidery detail, yes? Enjoy it and don’t torture yourself any longer. 😉 Congratulations on your upcoming wedding!

    Oh, one more thing. I can see you with your hair up and a big beautiful red rose in your hair to get you that burst of red! Pretty!

    I just don’t understand the second dress…why the white swirls out of the black?Plus, I don’t actually think the ruching adds anything to your body…I mean look how much thinner you look in the first dress?

    The first dress looks great fantastic AMAZING on you. Plus I think it does suit your venue because its very vintage, the pattern is a little victorian, but the shape and colour is obviously modern.

    Have you considered a smiple cathedral veil with the first? It will make it all wedding!

    The first one shows off that amazing figure that you have. I vote that one. The second is pretty, but I think it kind of wears you where as you wear the first. I can’t wait to see the recaps of your wedding.

    I’m in the minority but I like the second dress.  I think it will look stunning with a bouquet of red roses and red shoes. 

    Since both of your dresses are not very country or rustic I don’t think you should keep looking because I don’t think that’s your style and looking at more dresses isn’t going to change that.  Go with one of the two you already have, you look great in both of them.

    I like the first dress more!  I also wanted to mention that a lot of people dye their petticoats… it is easier to do than find the perfect color.  If you do a search there are quite a few threads around on how to do it.

    keep with the 1st one, the 2nd is prom-y to me (i know they’re both prom dresses, but the 2nd one is more overt). i think you look amazing in the 1st one!

    I’m on the first dress bandwagon! It is absolutely gorgeous on you and while non-traditional, it still looks bridal to me.
