    They’re both pretty, but there’s something about the second dress that looks a little off to me.

    The chest on the A-line is a lot more flattering on you :o)

    Plus, if you’re hiring a pro photographer, I’m sure they’ll know how to shoot/edit pictures to make your dress look as stunning as it is in person. Personally, I think it looks beautiful in the pictures you posted!

    I’m not a fan of mermaid dresses, so I chose #1. They both look lovely on you, though.

    I think the modified mermaid does more for your figure, but it depends if you want a figure enhancing dress for your wedding. I think that style looks great on lots of brides, but for me, it just wasn’t the right wedding “look” I was going for. If you stick with your original dress,  and you take it in a bit it would probably look like a toned down version of your modified bridesmaid dress. Happy medium maybe!?

    They both look beautiful on you, but I prefer the first. It has a more classic look.

    Def. Dress #1! Dress #2 is nice, but the cut/fit isn’t as nice as #1. I think the way the beading trim pulls at the fabric above it makes it look like its not the right size or something.

    I voted for dress #1…it is so stunning!  It is simple and strikingly beautiful on you!  I don’t think a dress could look bad on you; therefore, I think if you were to wear dress #2, you would stil look beautiful, but I am in love with dress #1 on you!  Who makes that dress by the way?

    i guess i’m on the other side of all the ladies 🙂 i like the mermaid one! it’s very figure flattering and gorgeous! and you look really happy in it! i’m sorry, i’m just not really a fan of the a-line! however, i do like the look of the a-line’s chest…maybe the mermaid one just didn’t look right for the picture? i don’t know!

    I like both, but I feel like the mermaid skirt is not the same color as the rest of the dress, I don’t know maybe it is the same color, but it doesn’t look like it to me. And I agree that you look happier in the mermaid.

    I would love #2, but you would have to get the bust part of the dress more fitted.  BUT, I do love the first dress too! I don’t think you’ll go wrong with either!

    #1 looks AMAZING on you! You look gorgeous in that dress, It’s so romantic! You have a rockin figure so no matter what you wear your going to look stunning! #2 is pretty and looks great on you, but compared to #1, somethings not doing it for me. Maybe I would remove  the bling thats near the knees….I dont know.  

    You could always see if you could modify #1 and see if you could take it in near the hips a little bit to create a more “fitted” look.
