- Wedding: February 2015 - Powel Crosley Estate, Sarasota, FL
Good morning gorgeous Bees!
I have some serious dress confusion that I could use some help with. I found 2 completely different dresses, and I love them both for different reasons. The first is a Maggie Sottero called Divina (very popular dress – you’ve prob all seen it! Ha!) the second is Casablanca Couture style B035.
I LOVE the “wow” factor of Divina – but I love how classy and timeless the Casa dress is. I want to look elegant and classy, but still have the “wow” thing 🙂
I really need some guidance. Do you like one over the other? Or should I try to look for a happy medium between the two?
My FI likes dresses that (and I quote) – are “form fitting, and a little fancy at the bottom” 🙂
Some things to consider when looking at both:
1. We are having an outdoor ceremony and reception – indoor dinner – in Florida. We’re looking at late Feburary (2015) right now (average temperature around that time 74-77).
2. Our venue is the Powel Crosley Estate in Sarasota – Mediterranean style estate on the water.
3. Divina (pic below) is a heavy heavy dress – especially when it’s bustled.
4. The Casablanca is very light and easy to wear – I’m a little concerned about wrinkling and seeing sweat (gross!).
5. I will be 31 by the time we get married. I’m afriad the Divina might look “too young” or like I’m trying too hard.
6. The Casablanca dress is less expensive – but I would need to get a separate belt to dress it up a bit.
I included some pictures below. Only a couple of the Divina because I’m figuring we’ve all seen it at some point. The Casablanca desperately needs to be steamed, so I inlcuded a stock picture of the back so you can see how it’s actually supposed to look.
Thank you all in advance for any feedback!
