If you added a lace back to the Oleg, it would be more forgiving in terms of fit, for sure, like any dress.

But I think most of us will tell you to get the dress that YOU love, that made you cry. I wouldn’t care about the theme of the wedding and matching, necessarily. If you get one just to match a theme, then you’re going to constantly wish you got the one that you felt the most beautiful in.

And actually, I think Adelaide will do just fine for matching, especially if you do your hair like the model!

Both have a similar shape… one is just lace, the other satin with a touch of bling. I think they both would equally fit the style of your wedding. bottom line: go with the one you love most.

I know this is slightly off from what you are asking, but did you look at the ‘modern vintage’ collection from alfred angelo? I think they would be BEAUTIFUL for a country wedding

Go with the one that made you cry. When you look back on the day in pictures, do you think you’re going to say to yourself “crap, my dress really doesn’t go with the theme of the wedding” or do you think you’ll say “damn, I love my dress and I felt beautiful”?

In my opinion, don’t pick a dress based on the theme of your wedding, pick the dress YOU feel best in.   My cousin is having a back yard BBQ wedding, everything points towards having a low key simple dress to fit the theme of her wedding, but she’s totally going for a real wedding gown.    That’s what she feels best in.  

I agree the first one is beautiful, and don’t fret about the quality, they’re not like, shoddy chinese crap that falls apart when you look at it, it’s not THAT bad, lol.   They have a not so god rap, but when you’re comparing their dresses to 7K dollar couture dresses, well, yea, you get what you pay for.  I’ve been in their stores, their dresses seem perfectly well constructed and of good quality.    It would help to see pictures of YOU in the dresses, I mean, the models look good in anything, lol.

I personally think the Adelaide will suit you best (from what you’ve described.) Why are you worried about quality and construction? Do you have a reason for believing the Oleg is superior to the Adelaide in terms of fabric etc? This might be an illusion due to one being lace and the other being satin. I think the detailing on the bust of the Adelaide will flatter you more as well, as it seperates your bust from your waist (I have that problem where my bust can make me look much larger if I’m not careful) You’ll look beautiful either way I’m sure 🙂

Both are pretty and both would look good next to a cowboy.  Go with the one that made you cry!

@codysgirl16:  Noo.. he needs to be surpised when he sees your in your dress.  I know it’s not your first wedding but I still feel that way.  You can always ask him what he envisions you wearing that day and go from there.
