    @nanc0802:   Have you tried on the Vera Wang?  Dresses can look SO different on than what you see in a picture – and getting the feel of a dress is important, too.

    I personally LOVE the candy because I have it so I’m biased lol On the upside, everyone and their brother has made a copy of VW Gemma, meanwhile I have only seen the Candy mimicked by one designer. Also, the candy is much more ethereal and lends itself to many more venues than the gemma I feel. The gemma is either classically romantic or modern while the candy can be either of the former but also rustic chic and understated elegance. I vote candy! You should add a poll!

    @nanc0802:  Tough one!  I have to see my jaw dropped when I saw the Gemma.  But I guess it also depends on how each look on you, it’s hard to say based on a model!  Why don’t you ring up and find out if it is possible first before torturing yourself? lol.  No point stressing out if if it’s too late.  Because both dresses are gorgeous!

    Seriously dont change your order. The Monique Candy is timeless and fashion forward (more high fashion). Stunning! The vera wang is pretty too but it has been done over and over (its been around for a long time). Resale value on the Monique is WAY BETTER than the vera. Not sure if you intend on selling your dress after the wedding but the Monique has great resale value potential.

    they’re both gorgeous.  But ultimately you have to do what you want… if your gut is telling you that gemma is your dress, then that’s your answer!  Have you tried it on?  Maybe you just need to try it on to set the doubts aside.. some dresses that I loved online, turned out to be not so great on me in person.  Try it on and go from there…

    @nanc0802:  I love them both. They are unique and still classic. I lean towards the mermaid dress, but again both are gorgeous!

    I tried on both as well and honestly even though I ultimately went with a mermaid shape, the ML candy was sooo much lighter and softer. The neckline and detail was so flattering. I liked Gemma too, but Candy was definitely higher on my list.  Stick with candy!
