    @FutureLadyL:  My vote is for Divina (adding a poll might get you more accurate results). I definitely do not think it’s too young for you. It’s romatic and sweeping and would be so lovely in a mediterranean setting.

    Personally I like the Casablanca a lot better! I’m not into the ruffly bottoms though, so I’m biased. I just think the Casablanca one is so classy, timeless and elegant.

    @FutureLadyL:  I voted for the Divina. I’m slightly biased though, as I was previously engaged and that was the dress I bought. I still love that dress. And I don’t think it looks too young for 31 at all. It looks gorgeous on you and is definitely a WOW dress.

    You’re going to sweat no matter what with Florida’s humidity, even in the cooler temperatures. I prefer the first dress personally, despite not being a fan of ruffles, but I think the second dress might fit the time of year and setting a bit more. Ruffles seem like more of an indoor reception type deal while the smooth, clean lines of the second dress look more appropriate for an outdoor garden setting. Less chance of it snagging on things.

    And I agree that you should add a poll.

    Oh my goodness!  The Casablanca is incredible!  The Divina doesn’t even compare!  I think the Divina is very trendy right now, but the Casablanca is timeless and elegant.  I’m not a fan of all the ruffly stuff on the bottom of the Divina.  The Casablanca is almost making me have dress regret…

    I love the Divinia on you, it shows off your body and the ruffles look like cascading petals!!  The 2nd dress just looks boring IMO.  

     

    If you aren’t settled on either one, you could always keep dress shopping!  🙂

    I really like the Casablanca on you (though I love the Divina also!) but the simplicity and elegance really strikes me as right for you.  Plus, it’s lighter and cheaper – yay!

    @FutureLadyL:  The divina realy suits your shape, but I’m not a massive fan of ruffles, I prefer the casablanca on you, and think it will suit your venue  beautifully.  But both are nice (but very different) dresses, I don’t think you can loose 🙂

    @FutureLadyL: 

    I’m not a fan of Divina. I don’t like the ruffles, and I don’t usually like mermaid style dresses where there’s a stark line between the skirt and bodice (I like it better when the bodice kind of fades into the skirt.. if that makes sense?) – it looks like it’s two different dresses just tacked together.

    The Casa is.. STUNNING. It’s classy, elegant, gorgeous.  The back is unique and absolutely amazing. Definitely has my vote! 🙂

    @FutureLadyL:  They both look incredible on you but I prefer the casablanca.
    I think the divina is very pretty and flattering, but I feel like that look is very trendy right now, and because it is so trendy right now, it could end up being dated by the time you actually get married.

    I think the Casa has the timeless elegance you’re going for, but it’s also a blank canvas so you could easily add some wow to it. You could get a lace bolero for the ceremony, then take it off an add a statement necklace for the reception.

    I also like the Casa better becaues it doesn’t have rouching which it looks like the divina does. I feel like rouching sometimes looks like you’re trying hide/ cover something, but you really don’t need that! Also, if you wanted more poof, you could probably add a petticoat underneath.

    @FutureLadyL:   Of the two I prefer the Casablanca on you, it is a stunning dress and looks fabulous on you.  Somehow, in these polls, when I see someone choosing between two very different dresses, I tend to think there is a dress out there that will have elements of both and be The One.  So I voted to keep looking, but will add that the Casa is gorgeous on you and would suit your venue.
