I think I found her ladies… I want to go back with my sister just to be sure… and theres also the possiblity I’ll be headed to the Running of the Brides in NYC so I might find another dress there… but here are my two options:
The #2 option is a convertable dress from David’s Bridal. It’s strapless which i didn’t want, but it’s convertable so it’s WAY different than anything I’ve ever seen:
Love the fit! Looks great on.
Convertable!! If I want to change into flats my dress won’t be dragging.
Easy to hem.
Do I want to wear a short party dress at my wedding?
Strapless dresses are fit either too tight so they stay up (but they give you back fat), or they’re too loose and you fidget with them all day.
Number one on my list is also from David’s Bridal. It was at the top of my list when I was searching on the web and I love the way it fits.
Straps are comfortable
NO BACK FAT!
If I want to switch to flats my dress will be dragging on the ground
Might be pricer to alter.

Personally I LOVE the off-the-shoulder dress. The convertable dress is nice. I’d ultimately go with which one flatters you more. A-line tends to slim an apple shape better. I’m not really a fan of the convertable-ness of the first dress only because I wouldn’t wear it again either way, and I’d be ok if my dress dragged a bit later in the night (since I’d only be wearing it once). That’s only my personal reasoning though. I say if you really want to swap styles later in the night or are concerned about dress dragging and really like the convertable style, go with that one. 🙂

I vote for number one it looks the best and it’s a classic. I hope this helps.

It’s hard to say without seeing the dresses on you, but from ojust looking at the pictures, I vote for the off the shoulder dress.
It’s just beautiful.
But, you ultimately want the dress that looks better on you and feels more comfortable.

I love the off the shoulder dress. Then again, I bought my dress at ROTB and I feel like I got a much better quality dress than I was looking at when I was at DB for $250. I say go to ROTB first but only buy a dress you love. The best part is you take it home that day so if there are any questions you have your dress right there to try on and reassure you. I have mine under my bed all wrapped up and she comes out every couple of months and I love her just as much now as when I bought her 🙂 Best of luck to you!!

I like the 2in1 dress, it looks so nice and i love the idea of being able to wear the wedding dress more than just once ( the short one). But it’s difficult to say without seeing real pictures of it

If you are going to the running of the brides then I would wait. Those David’s dresses will still be there I would think if you don’t find anything but I have heard of people getting amazing, amazing deals on designer dresses at the running of the brides…..like $250 to $500 on thousand dollar dresses. That is just what I have heard, I don’t have any actual experience.
