    @kansas_nurse:  As someone who is also on the shorter side (much shorter than you, actually!) and a bottom-heavy hourglass, anything with a dropped waist is not your friend.  Your dream dress looks like it has a great waist for your body type!  I think you’ll have to do a good amount of alterations to fit your bust and have no gapping on the sides/top/sleeves.  Definitely go try it on!  Either you’ll love it and then you can buy it or it won’t be what you’ve dreamed and you can get it out of your head.

    @kansas_nurse:  I’m sure which option is which on the poll, but I really like the first dress, esp. if you are a bit shorter you won’t get lost in the layers.  On a personal note I also like very classic type dresses and this really reminds me of a Jackie-O type/inspired style, always in fashion and georgous!

    @kansas_nurse:  Ok, I’m not exactly sure which dress you’re talking about so I didn’t vote. I *think* the first dress is the one you really want and the second dress is what the bridal consultant tried to get you into. But I’m not sure, so anyway, I’ll just be honest. 🙂

    I LOVE the first dress and the second dress is just so-so for me. I mean it’s ok, but not “WOW!” The first dress is dreamy, to me.

    @kansas_nurse:  So you haven’t bought either dress, right? Get in there and try on your dream dress! ASAP!

    I think the first dress was the one you really wanted… assuming that’s the case, I would definitely at least try it on. I’m not crazy about the second dress; I have similar proportions to you (I’m a street size 14/16, closer to 16, and an inch shorter with what sounds like a similar body shape) and I was not at all happy with the one dress I tried on that was similar to #2. I felt it just accentuated my (lack of) height.
