You’re wearing the dress for what, 4-5 hours?  Go with the less expensive one.

I like the first one better. It looks more modern.

I would order the first dress for three reasons. I think it looks much better. I wouldn’t want to take a chance on the quality of the work when I’ve put so much effort into the rest of the wedding. I’m against supporting relica dress makers in principle.

I actually like the second one better, at least from the front. I think the criss-cross would be flattering. of course, I haven’t seen the backs though.

I also like the first one better- the cut and smoothness of the fabric looks better than the rouching on the top of the second.. But I’m super anti-rouching so take that with a grain of salt. If you have room in your budget for the extra $150 I’d go with the first. It’s fitted pretty much all the way down your torso (due to the low back- but that may cost more in alterations as well) whereas the second one is fitted in the bust only, then drapes down… 

If I had the extra $150 in my budget I’d go with #1, if not #2 would be close enough for me!

I like the first one.  It looks so sleek, modern and elegant.  I feel like the ruching makes them look very different, and I strongly prefer it without!

I think you should get the first one. I know it’s more and I usually don’t say go with the more expensive one but I think they drag very different dresses! The first one is much more flattering and I just like the overall look of it waaaay better. I say it’s worth the extra bucks this time.

I’d get the second one. I like the way the sleeves are more bunched in the front and the detail in the front.

What’s the return poicy on the second one? If your wedding date is far enough out you could order and if you don’t like it return it for the other.

Have you tried the DB dress on? What kind of material is it?

I have seen the DB one and it is really nice.  Looks way more expensive than it is and the material hangs really nicely.
