I wrote a post about my dress regret here:
Today I went to try on my dream dress (that I couldn’t find before) and loved it. Now I have two dresses that I love, and I can’t decide which I want to go with for my outdoor gazebo wedding in May. Please vote for which one you think looks better on me!
The first dress is silk taffeta and has pockets and buttons all the way down the back. This is the dress I have already purchased.
The second lace dress is more fitted and has a small train. This is the dress that I looked everywhere for and finally found a sample to try on.
Thanks for your help!

@cestvrai: I am of no help. They both look great! What type of mood do you hope to create ?

@cestvrai: They both suit you, though the lace is more demure and as it’s your dream dress, I think 2’s the one.

They both look amazing but I voted for the first one.I fell like I have seen the second one 1000000 times on the bee.

I voted for the second one – It really suits your figure. I like the contrast of the belt in the first one though, have you considered a more contrasting belt on the second one.

@cestvrai: Both are equally flattering.
The first dress gives you more presence. It’s a power dress.
The second dress makes you look, as someone said, “demure” but also elegant. As someone said it is a fairly common thing (lace trumpet dress) but I also think that perfect lace trumpets such as yours are a new classic.

@cestvrai: I voted for the lace mainly because I’m a sucker for lace (my dress is also lace), and because you have a great body for the silhouette. I’m also not a huge fan of taffeta. If you want my honest opinion, seeing them side by side the first dress looks kind of cheap to me compared to the other one. I think that if the second one is your dream dress and you can afford it, you should definitely go for it.

You look fabulous in both! I voted for the second dress only because it shows off your lovely figure better! You could wear either one.

I still say the first one! It’s gorgeous!

Thanks for the input! The look I’m going for is elegant, romantic, and classy, maybe with a hint of sexy. 🙂 I’m conflicted because the first dress was more comfortable and light while the second dress is more figure-flattering but less comfortable. So it’s kind of a choice between looks and comfort.

@cestvrai: I am surprise I voted for the 1st dress as I’m not usually drawn to taffeta. I love the 1st dress as I think it looks more classic, elegant and the neckline is just perfectly shaped and the bodice pleats are a lovely subtle detail.
Although the 2nd dress does look nice it has been DONE many many times over. I am not a fan of the sweetheart neckline, it looks too broad and points outwards towards your armpits, it looks awkward.

@cestvrai: I love the first one, but I love a natural waist a-line, I think they shrink the waist (you have a great waist naturally so that’s not really a factor). It sounds like you prefer the second though, which is lovely too. Have you discussed it with your FI? Mine hates lace so that made my choice easy, maybe yours has a preference. I’d vote to weigh comfort pretty heavily though, you’re going to be in it for a long day and you want to feel good. Both dresses are gorgeous so whatever you choose you’ll look amazing!

I think they both look great on you. I have a slight preference towards the first but that’s more because it’s more my personal taste.
I do however think you should pick the second one. The fact that you searched for it even when you already had a dress has to say something. I think you’d be regretting it if you didn’t choose it.
