    dress 2 is gorgeous! the shape is great on you. i’m not a fan of that lace waist on dress 1, and i think the skirt on it is kind of plain.

    I love the second dress, sans sash.

    Number 1! The second one is pretty, but I feel like that look is everywhere, dress number 1 is different and I love the waist detail!

    Dress 2.  I’m not sure I like the sash on dress 1.

    Ooh that was tough, that took me a couple of mins to decide, but I voted one. It’s absolutely gorgeous and the neckline is so soft on you. Please please pick one!

    #2 looks amazing on your figure. You have a beautiful shape and stay focused on that. Think about the dress like it’s a bikini, does anyone really look at the print or style of the suit -no, they look at your body in it. ๐Ÿ™‚

    #2 photographs beautifully, there’s lots of movement at the base of the dress while the bottom of #1 looks stiff and somewhat like a drapery from the 1980s or some sort of Laura Ashley remake. The sash on #1 is just distracting.

    The sheen on the fabric in #2 is also photogenic. It will remain timeless on the wedding photos.

    On #2, look at your sweetheart neckline combined with your waist – your waist looks tiny and you’ve got that vintage movie star silhouette going on. Your figure looks like early Barbara Stanwyck in this one.

    The bust on #1 looks a bit stiff like an old 1940’s swimsuit form. Seriously – check out your chest in both on the photos and tell me I’m wrong?! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I realize #2 style is popular right now but I guarantee that most brides don’t look as good in it as you do. Skip the sash and just like your shape shine on its own. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Last thing – #1 dress seems a bit froofy – your hair just works with #2 better – you look modern and sophisticated,  #1 makes you look like your wearing someone else’s clothes.

    Just my opinion.  If you love #1, go back and try it on again to get that “it” feeling and our comments will all fade away.

    Both are lovely. I chose #1 because I am not a fan of pick-ups.

    I seriously like #1 more… 2 is toooooooooo simple, I can’t see any decorations on the dress… it seems to me only a piece of white cloth.

    The waist part of #1 is unique and great. It does perform the function you want: highlight your waist and hide your hips.

    In terms of proportion, #1 looks better. #2… the bust line looks like so wide. Your bust looks even flatter than #1.

    No doubt #1 rocks!

    #2.  #1 seems to wear you, while #2 just flatters you amazingly.  Also….I wouldn’t add a sash.

    We must be twins b/c I wanted to hide/accentuate the same body parts as you!

    I think #2 does all what you want it to. Looks really good! But I do like the waist detail of the first dress. Maybe if you add something to the #2, it would be perfect! But you can’t go wrong with either one. They both look great.

    I vote dress one with a softer sash color, like champagne or even something with a little lace and metallic threading/beading might be nice. I like the neckline of dress 1 better than dress 2
