    Ok honestly, they both look very much alike in shape. They both look like ball gowns except for the ruffles. 

    I really like the first one better on you with the beading. 

    They are two different looks though. 

    I think the first has a wow factor and the second has a sweet country girl look that you seem to have. 

    On that note, I think both look good on you, so my vote is either. 

    Pick what YOU feel most beautiful in!!

    I agree with you, I love the second one on you! The first one doesn’t really do it for me.

    I voted for the Paloma Blanca 4465! They’re both such beautiful dresses, however the Paloma Blanca just looks so much better on your petite frame. The first one with all the tulle looks too bulky on you whereas the different layers and sheerness in the second one makes it look much more flowy and light on you.

    You are beautiful, so both dresses look great on you. But, IMO, the esme is the wow dress on you. That bodice with your coloring is just amazing. You look like a goddess.

    I like the second one but I would remove the flower. I think it’s a pretty, classic dress.

    I really like both… but i think the Paloma is better for all the reasons you stated.  I thought the new esme marie wouldnt be as puffy… im a little skeptical of it now… I still want to try it but i see what you mean about the “prom feel”

    I accidentally voted for Esme because it was on the bottom, since I thought it correlated with your order of pictures.

    The esme top looks really really stiff and the bottom is just a big poof.

    The Paloma is so much softer and comfortable looking.  Just looks a lot more natural

    nicoleylo:  I loooove the second dress, but it’s because I am not into the heavy beading on the top one. Both look nice on you, so you won’t go wrong.

    nicoleylo:  I like them both on you! If you were to go with the Esme, could you have some of the layers of organza removed during alterations to make it more A-line?

    I think the Esme stands out more (love the bodice, I didn’t think prom when I saw it) and the Paloma looks more like a typical bridal gown (nothing wrong with that). In the OP it seems like you made your mind up already so I voted for what you seemed to indicate you would be happier with.

    nicoleylo:  Paloma! It makes you look very elegant vs pageant or prom look. Plus I think the Paloma is kind of more femenine… and I think you look smaller in it! ( not that you are big, but the beaded one seems to have higher waist and swallows aome of your waist, while paloma emphasises it!) I hope it makes sense. You look gorgeous!

    I love the Paloma–but what matters is which one YOU love, and it sounds like the Paloma makes you happiest. Go with it, you look great!
