    I love both, but the second one is breathtaking and fits the theme so well.

    I like them both as well but they are very different dresses.  The first one, I think, does not appear to be too snug at all.  I think it very much compliments your figure.  The second one is lovely as well and resonates a completely different bride to me.  If I had to choose, I’d go with #2.

    Gah, this is a hard decision!  I can see both dresses working for the type of wedding that you desire, but I think the 2nd dress is more flattering on you.

    # 2 Definitely! It’s AMAZING! It looks gorgeous on you! Don’t get caught up with all the tv wedding hoopla. You will be a beautiful bride regardless of the label on your dress πŸ™‚

    I think they both look great on you. TOTALLY different looks. The first one is very sexy, the second one feels more traditional bride to me. I think i like the 2nd one better. And it has POCKETS!!!!

    I also vote for #2! It’s beautiful and probably a lot easier to breathe and sit and move in!

    I like the first dress because it’s so figure flattering. But I always like that look. If I were you, I would definately wait to make a decision.  You have plenty of time.  In my own personal experience, I didn’t know the type of dress I wanted until much closer to the wedding, when it was all coming together. Unfortunately I bought my dress 8 months prior.  I like the dress, but it wasn’t what I would have chosen had I had more time.

    “Being able to breathe” is exactly why I voted for the second dress πŸ™‚

    They’re both gorgeous on you, but you look like you have the same tummy pooch I have, and the first dress definitely shows it off, while the second one hides it. When I was trying on dresses, I was super worried about ‘food baby’ belly showing up at the reception, haha.

    I like both dresses, but if you’re going for the 40s glamor theme, I think the Pnina is actually a better fit.

    However, overall, I think I like the second dress slightly better πŸ™‚

    Just keep in mind the costs you’d be eating as well. This happened to me. I bought a once-wed gown, and in the end, I didn’t like it, and I bought another dress (that was luckily incredibly cheap). Our wedding was last September, and I have yet to sell the first dress. I’ve even offered it at like 80 percent off, and no takers! It’s hard to sell a twice-wed dress (even though I didn’t even wear it on our wedding day). So, I’m pretty much counting on being out the $1500 I paid for first dress. Oh well. In the end, it was worth it for me to get the new dress (but it was only $300 with alterations – short dress).

    Good luck!

    I like the second more.  I don’t think the first is very bridal.  Fit and flare can be lovely, but it fits so far down that even if it wasn’t so tight, I just don’t think it’s all that bridal.  It looks to me more like something you would wear walking the red carpet rather than getting married in.  I also think the second dress is so much more romantic and classic.  The second dress doesn’t look like something you will see pictures of in 20 years and think that it is so out of style as you would the first.

    I love the second one – but that is just because I love that dress! Whatever dress makes your heart go “wow” is the one you need to get. I think you said it best in your post, the second dress made you go wow.

    When I went dress shopping I wanted the mermaid style because that was all I was seeing on shows like say yes to the dress – the glam sexy look – but when I was pulled more of a ballgown (which I didnt want) I couldnt believe how much it made my heart skip – it was the one. You know what dress is the one – and you should go for it! You really do look stunning in that second dress!
