Oooh, hard! I think both look beautiful and it’s really a personal choice as to which you like more! Personally I am a sucker for illusion necklines, but either way would look gorgeous.

I love illusion necklines, but I think I like the strapless on you a bit better!

I vote strapless version – I think it looks better against the full skirt.

I love it with the illusion neckline! It has a real wow-factor impact on me. Whatever you choose, though, will be beautiful.

emorelia:  I love the straps, it gives the dress something extra. It makes it feel more vintage, more regal. Very pretty dress 🙂

Wow the skirt on your dress is beautiful! I also love the straps a little bit more compared to the strapless, but the dress looks gorgeous either way

I think it depends what overall look you are going for with your whole wedding.

I like both… The illusion neck definitely has a touch of vintage about it (especially with the gloves) and looks more unusual. The strapless has a more modern, fairytale feel…

emorelia:  I think it’s a lovely dress! But I personally get so sick of strapless. Eeeeeveryone has strapless and aaaaaall the dresses they try on on Say Yes to the Dress are strapless. I LOVE when Kate Middleton got married and she did something different! Go with the illusion neckline! Anyway… ultimately it’ll be up to you. I once put a poll on here and everyone chose B and I ultimately chose C. Lol!

I’m so surprised that I am saying this, because I am not normally a fan of high/illusion/lace necklines like the one on your dress.  However, I would choose that look for you with this particular dress.  It is extremely flattering  to your figure and gives you a long line from your shoulders to your waist, making your torso look leaner and taller and providing greater balance for the fullness of the ball gown skirt. It’s a beautiful dress.

I am shocked I am going to say this too.  I like the illusion neckline on you better.  Both look amazing on you (lucky duck), but I like that the illusion neckline is different.  I have never seen it with a full skirt before so it doesn’t blend in with other strapless styles.

Strapless looks so pretty on you!
