    I’ve never seen the bow dress paired with a pink sash and I absolutely love it. Can you describe your venue/theme/feel of your wedding? That might help make a more informed decision 🙂

    They both look great on you! The bow dress is half as much? 

    Honestly, I think it depends on the feel you ar going for for you wedding. 

    The Vera would be great in a very formal regal setting 

    The Bow Dress would look great for something more like a garden wedding

    @DunnToBe1025:  I love the bow dress on you, and I think it’s modern and fresh, not young. It’s really charming and I’ve never seen it before. Hope that helps! They are both lovlug, so you can’t go wrong.

    The bow is much more flattering on you.

    Whoops, just read your update.

    If you love the dress, you could dump the bow and use a nice blingy sash instead.

    I think the bow dress is more flattering, and also more suitable for your venue. It’s whimsical and romantic and fresh (which I think is different to looking ‘young’).

    While I don’t completely hate either dress, I think you can do better.

    I think the low-ish rounded waistline of the VW and the extra poofy skirt emphasises the tummy and makes your hips look bigger. Those same features make your waist look tiny, so there’s an upside.

    The bow dress is overall more flattering, but there’s something off about it. For me, it’s the way that it flows from the empire line position rather than the natural waist – it’s like the bow is needed to define the waist. It makes you look slimmer because it’s basically a-line in shape and there are a lot of vertical lines, but it doesn’t really show off your waist because it doesn’t define it as well.

    I would still prefer to see you in a genuine natural waist ballgown. You have a defined waisst so you can pull off that look. Like these DB ones:
