So I need to decide on a dress soon. I thought I loved mermaid/tighter dresses and I also loved ball gown but thought mermaid was just more my style. I like the idea of being classy and sexy all at once. So I went dress shopping and actually fell in love with BOTH, mermaid and ball gown. Still haven’t decided and need to order it ASAP. I seriously love both of them equally and I am just nervous that I will make a wrong decision. What doesn’t help me any is that friends and family like both or like either or. So I am just completely torn. Thought maybe you guys could help me out a little??

I say mermaid simply because afterwards, dancing, I would imagine it’s much more comfy

That ball gown is gorgeous on you! 🙂 I think the beading is amazing and your waistline looks so tiny in it. I’d go with that one!

I say ballgown, it looks gorgeous and it’s your only chance to ever wear one most likely, ten or fifteen years from now you can always do a renewal and wear the mermaid.

@Daniellelise: I like the mermaid one just a little bit better. I like how the dress hugs your body and shows your curves off. Both are gorgeous so you can’t go wrong with either choice. Did one feel more comfortable than the other? How about when you sit down in them? Did you feel like you didn’t wanna take one off more so than the other? Good Luck in your choice!!

Wow! Both dreses are beautiful, and you look stunning in both. I see why this is a tough choice for you.
I prefer the mermaid on you because I think you rock it! Your shape looks great. It’s a little less dramatic than the ball gown, but I think it still has the wow factor.

I love them both! I think I like the ballgown more though. It makes you look so freaking tall.

@Daniellelise: Gosh they are both beyond gorgeous on you. Any input on the type of wedding you are having? Venue? Perhaps one might “work” better than the other?
I am leaning a bit more towards the ballgown simply because it is stunning and definitely a wow dress. The mermaid is gorgeous, elegant and fits you perfectly but compared to the ballgown is a bit more subdued.

@minipenguin: my friend sai she was uncomfortable dancing in her mermaid and the ball gown did seem more comfortable…
@orchidblooms: the beading is definitely beautiful and in that retrospect I like the beading on the gown better. That’s one thing I’m totally obsessed with on that gown.
@Woowoo819: I totally agree! When will ever be able to wear a gown like that in my lifetime? Good point! Thanks!
@Mez03: I honestly felt the same way for both! That’s why this decision is so freaking hard! I loved both of them equally. I’m thinking the ball gown would definitely be more comfortable though…
@BrandNewBride: aw thank you!!
@Treejewel19: we are having the ceremony at a beautiful church and then the reception is at night at a country club. So I’m guessing they would both be suitable? I would like more of a wow factor. We are having about 240 guests and want to “wow” everyone 🙂

You can’t go wrong here, but the ball gown is jaw droppingly gorgeous

I normally vote for mermaid, but in this case, definitely the ball gown! Definitely a bigger wow factor.
