I bought the Divina and wonder about that every single day. It’s a fun, flirty, sexy dress and I like it but not sure I love the bottom or it’s 100% me. I know for certain I did not want lace because that screams old to me (please, no offence to anyone), just my peronal taste. I tried lace and did not like it at all on me. I rushed and bought my dress and wasn’t entirely sure, but now that I’ve put down 1000 on it, there is no turning back. I’ve even thought about cutting off the train and asking alterations to cut off some of the ruffles.

I’m just as torn as you are.

did you purchase yours in ivory or you haven’t purchased it yet? I am wondering now if I should not have purchased mine in white as I think the Ivory is too Ivory, not sure what I was thinking. I always wanted a white dress. I saw someone on the Bee in the white version and thought it looked beautiful, not stark white as they normally do. But it’s too late now so I’m stuck with the Ivory. I only ordered my dress a month ago, so I have 5 long agonizing months to think about whether or not I’ll still like it when it comes in May. Sigh……

I’ve tried both — just because I brought people with different dress tastes with me! 🙂

I like lace, but also ran into similar problems with some lace dresses. A consultant-zilla at a mall was very rude/abrupt to say, “That dress doesn’t suit your age. You look 40 in it.” (Ouch)

@beetobee255:   

I had to Google the Divina dress:

I really like the blush colour, but am not a fan of any of the sashes nor beaded belt. With a mermaid, the sash cuts the body into 3rds. I think this contemporary dress can be very tasteful and timeless if you pair your accessories right! 🙂

I can’t vote without seeing you in them–But ALL dresses look dated after 5-10 years! So go with the one you love!

I love the Divina on you, definitely do not like the lace. You look like you’re leaning in the pics though. If you don’t mind Ill show you a pic of the Ivory on me and tell me what you think? I’m really short, so I’m thinking a couple layers of those ruffles will be gone, atleast I’m hoping lol. I’m only 5 feet tall and planning on losing some weight for the wedding. Here is me in the Divina.

I do think most styles that are popular now will look dated in a few years. I think it just depends on what’s important to you. I’m not a particularly trend-driven person anyway, so it didn’t make sense for me to choose a gown that’s very ‘now.’ I feel like it’s more important to choose a style that reflects your personality, and one that you feel comfortable in. I opted for classic, 1950s ballgown styles because I can dance and move around easily, it’s a silhouette I am very comfortable in and I know will stay classic in years to come.

I personally love the maggie sotero gown on you. It looks beautiful 🙂 but to be honest, they are both stunning on you and you can’t really go wrong. You have the perfect figure for the mermaid/trumpet cut

I used to think that classic was always the best bet, but since I have started to look at gowns for myself, my views have changed.

Who cares if you look back and think it was trendy. You got married in 2014, so the photos are supposed to look like you got married in 2014!

Choose the one you love regardless of trendiness
