So I have a dilemma… a family friend is offering to GIVE me this beauiful Casablanca Couture gown. It has never been altered, and I absolutely love it. But I’m torn, because I’ve also found this other dress that I love (Maggie Sottero Ericka.) Which do you like better? Should I go with the free one just because it’s free? I do have a pretty tight budget, so this would free up $1000 for me. What would YOU do?

I’m assuming the first dress is the Casablanca dress? Do you have a picture of you in it? Personally, I prefer the style of the Casablanca dress.

I’d go with the free one since it is really pretty.
fyi – in the pic you can see the boning in the bustier – you might want a different one

Yes, the first dress is the Casablanca… and unfortunately I don’t have a pic of me in it, but we are the same size.

I LOVE both….But my fav. is the 2nd dress.

I like the second one the best.

I really like the first, and not just because it’s free. Though that is a HUGE bonus.

I love the first one, even freeness aside

I’d go with the free one – it’s a pretty enough dress, and you could probably buy a really nice beaded belt for like $150, and still save yourself $850!
From one tight budget bride to another, save the money!!!

If you have a similar body shape as the lady in the first picture, I think you should go for the free one! I think the Casablanca is more flattering than the second dress.
As @daydreamwanderer said, you can always purchase an inexpensive beaded belt to add some bling!

I really think that the Casablanca would look beautiful on you. The sweetheart neckline is super flattering. Seriously, you cant beat free.

I like the second one…I know it isn’t the free one but it is fabulous!

Price aside, I actually like the first dress better. I am not a fan of the ribbon under the bust of the second dress.
