    Both dresses are beautiful, but I would definitely go with the Allure dress. It’s much more modern and fresh and I think it would suit your venue perfectly. Purple is very bold and in right now and doesn’t seem to go with the first dress…the first dress seems like it would go better with earth tones or softer colors. 

    It sounds to me like you’ve pretty much talked yourself out of dress 1. But I know how hard it is to let go of the idea of the dress you’ve loved for so long. I was in love…and I mean in obsessed with this one venue from the pictures online, but when I visited it I was truly disappointed. But yet I still wanted to try and see if I could make it work knowing deep down it wouldn’t.

    Hope that helps! Good luck!

    I dont think you should get the dress 1 since youre hesitant and dont seem to love it. Although I could see how dress #1 could look dated, personally I think it is so much more flattering on your body then dress two. That sweet heart neckline and shape of the waist is just extremely flattering in my opinon. I dont think dress #2 does anything for you, thats just my opinion. I agree with you I dont like that lace cover thing it looks really dated.

    I think Dress #1 is lovely, but Dress #2 has a better fit on you. Dress #1 is wearing you… you’re wearing Dress #2. I’m loving the back of Dress #2! Your venue is also too rockin for #1, which seems better suited for a throwback romantic wedding. So between those things and the price… I voted for #2! Best luck!

    One more thing. I agree the skirt for dress one is swallowing you, I was referring to the top being more flattering. I dont like the cut of the waist on dress 2

    I think they’re both beautiful…but since you look awesome in both I vote for dress #2! It looks like it’d fit in perfect with your venue and you’re def. rocking it 🙂 Let us know what you choose!

    I think the first dress is ten shades of gorgeous! But that’s completely personal opinion, and the price tag would knock it out of the running for me. The second doesn’t look as figure flattering as the first. Maybe keep looking?

    Oo this is hard. Both are beautiful! I really love the shape of #1– the sweetheart neckline is fabulous on you and I love the higher waist than the dropped waist of the second dress. BUT, I love the fabric and modern feel of the second dress. Is it possible that the answer is… neither? If it is definitely one of these two, I’d go with #2. It is beautiful, works better for your venue, and I’d never know that it is slightly less awesome of a shape on you without seeing it right next to the other.

    I, personally, think dress 1’s top part look much better and more flattering in you..but *dies* HOW MUCH?? i would have croaked if I was quoted that much for one dress esp with all that detail=more money to alter it. I also think with the jacket it looks really old and outdated like your mom said.

    I think that dress 2 back is gorgeous, but I don’t really like the top. i think the sweetheart top is more flattering for you.

     

    I would pick dress two, because of the back and the price. maybe you can get it alter as a sweetheart ….???

    But, in all, it’s just my opinion and I think you should pick the dress that you love!!

    I actually think dress 1 without the jacket is GORGEOUS!  That being said, you look stunning in the second dress, too and you should be comfortable with your selection.  If you feel the first is too dated, don’t pick it because you’ll regret it.  Good luck, you will be lovely no matter which you pick!

    I love both dresses, but the allure seems to look perfect and fit your venue and style and i think it’s gorgeous!

    Save the money!  That extra grand could be your honeymoon and the second dress is just stunning!

    I disagree with some of the posts…I think the waist on #2 is VERY flattering. In my book a drop-waist is a must on a big ballgown, it shows the curve of the waist and the hips nicely and elongates the torso. Otherwise the poof just swallows the body and does a girl’s figure no justice. So I still vote for #2. However, #1 is a beautiful dress, and you do carry it as well as the model does if not better! If you loved it in the pics, I think no reason to be disappointed because it looks just as pretty in your photos. I’m not crazy about the long-sleeve top though, I think that’s what’s making you look older. Bit too conservative for my taste.
