    if you want "unique and original" then i voted for the off the shoulder… reason being most brides these days seem to have strapless dresses and when i look at your pic i think "oh wow how nice, she has off the shoulder/sleeves"

    loving the train btw… its gorgeous

    I really like the off the shoulder look…Mrs. Avocado looked so classy and elegant in her’s!

    I was just thinking the dress reminded me of Mrs. Avocado’s!  I agree that off the shoulder is definitely classy and more original right now when soooo many dresses are strapless!

    I think strapless looks more clean cut, and I love the sweetheart neckline. The off the should looks more Disney Princess-y.

    I think the off the shoulder is more classic, elegant and dramatic.  Plus it really accentuates your perfect proportions.  I think you look a little narrow at the shoulders with the strapless.  Ultimately, either would look good… but you got the "ONE" feeling with the portrait sleeves and I think there’s a reason for that.  Go with your gut 🙂

    I also love the off the shoulder look…my only hesitation would be the cathedral veil may be a bit too much with the off-the-shoulder dress (but that is just me). I definitely prefer simplicity. I think the off-the-shoulder look is so classic but unique, but the style may be lost with a cathedral veil.

    How about a one shoulder design?  I really like the look of the strapless with the cathedral veil. however, it is not unique or different with strapless in and of itself.

    I personally happen to like the strapless look better but that’s just me…I think if you got the ‘ONE’ feeling from the off-the-shoulder look, then there’s your answer…your dress is beautiful, btw!

    The off the shoulder is very very classy and elegant.

     The strapless is a bit more modern, but I think I like that more!

    I really like you with the off-the-shoulder straps.  I think they look really flattering on you.  I’d also consider either wearing your hair down or maybe putting on a necklace.

    First, great job with the photoshop!  I also like the off-the-shoulder. Are you wearing something in your hair on the day?  The reflection in the very left picture makes it look like you have a big white flower on your hair (OK, a bit lower), but made me think it’d look real pretty if you had a white flower or something…just a thought.

    Ultimately though, go with your gut.  I’m sure the right look will call on you!
