I am in quite the predicament: I have already purchased a dress, however have fallen in love with a different dress.
I need help deciding which dress to go with!
Could you please tell me which one you think looks better??!
a. WTOO Kinsey
b. Rivini Lismora

They both look fantastic on your figure; I can see why you’re having a hard choice! I think the first one looks more traditional and more “bridal.” I think my favorite of the two is the first one, but it’s because I’m not the biggest fan of the ruffles.

WTOO ! 🙂 The other one looks good, but I dont like the ruffles..

I voted Rivini: It shows off your amazing body & it’s so chique but I have to say it was a TOUGH choice!!

First one! The mermaid silhouette looks great on you but there’s something about the ruffles on the skirt that don’t look right, it almost looks as though it’s two different dresses that have been meshed together. The first one looks beautiful on you though.

They both look wonderful on you so I don’t think you can go wrong either way. Tough choice! The first looks more elegant (I see indoor candlelight reception) the second a little more trendy and fun (ruffles to me = dancing).
If you’re already bought one of these, you’re guaranteed to look great.

They are both great, but you are rockin’ that Rivini.

I love the way the second one really shows off your figure but I must agree with PP’s, just not in love with the ruffles.

Thank you SO much for your comments and votes!!
I really really appreciate it as this has been weighing very heavily on my mind!!
The first dress, the WTOO is the dress that I have already bought.
I bought it before buying the bridesmaids dresses, which is why I am attracted to the ruffles on the Rivini dress.
These are my bridesmaids dresses:
Do you think the WTOO dress fits well with the “different” bridesmaids dresses??
Thanks again for your input!!!

I think you look great in both! But I voted the WTOO because I think it is more classic. The Rivini is awesome, but I think the ruffles could someday strike that “trendy” note that we now associate with puffy sleeves from the 80s.

WOW, that is a tough choice!!! I think it’s all about how you envision yourself for your wedding day. The Wtoo is definitely more princess-y, and the Rivini is more bombshell…it just depends on what kind of look you’re going for! You look totally beautiful in both, lucky girl!!

Rivini lismora is very elegant and sophisticate at the same time ( Ilove it) , wtoo is elegant ang classy , your bridesmaid dresses match perfectly with rivini dress

They are both beautiful but I definitely feel like if you wear the ruffle dress plus have your bridesmaids in ruffles it would be too much. I would stick with your original purchase, you look gorgeous!

WOW, WOW, WOW!! Those are two beautiful dresses, and you look amazing in both of them!! I can totally see why this is difficult for you!
However, I must agree with the pps who noted that the first dress is more classic and elegant, and you will be an amazing bride in it! Although the second dress shows off your curves incredibly well, I, too, am not a fan of the ruffles on that gown. They almost look as if you’re standing inside of them. I just want to reach into the picture and pull them off of the bottom of the dress to reveal the rest of the dress that is above it.
I also agree with @awcm: that the ruffled dress would not be the best choice to coordinate with your bridesmaids’ dresses. I love the contrast that the WTOO provides with the bridesmaids’ dresses (which are totally fab, by the way!!) I think there would be too much competition happening if you tried to pair your bridesmaids’ dresses with the Rivini.
ETA: I just wanted to note that, if you could just do the Rivini with a bottom that looks like the upper part of the dress, I probably would pick the Rivini, because it’s spectacular apart from those ruffles.
One more edit — any chance that you added the sash that is shown on the Rivini? If so, it may look incredible on your WTOO!

Thank you all!
I love Weddingbee! This was my first post and I am so happy to get all of your opinions! It’s one thing to show friends and family, but having unbiased opinions is AMAZING!!!
I really appreciate everything you have all said.
I think as MissBMarie1428 said, I have to really think about how I envision myself on my wedding. Initially I wanted the more “princessy” feeling, which is why I went with the WTOO dress. I definitely feel like a bride in it!
Brielle, I haven’t bought my sash yet, so I think as you say, perhaps if I buy a more “blinged out” belt it will make the WTOO dress a little less plain.
Thank you all for your nice comments as well. It means a lot!!!!!
