    From these pictures I feel like the Penelope looks better than the Agatha!

    I think you should go with what you feel and love. In any case I wouldn’t be having dress regret if I were you cos the Penelope looks bloody amazing on you! 😍

    You’ll have a professional photographer on the day that’ll make any dress look wonderful!

    However, you can’t fake a smile and the best smile will come from the dress you’re happiest in!

    Personally, I think you’re rocking both!

    But that Penelope, it’s so ethereal and unique. I don’t think many will pull it off as well as you. If you’re unsure, you can start thinking about giving it that bridal oomph with accessories/ bouquet!

    Confidence and joy are the reasons brides look beautiful. 🙂 If you feel gorgeous in your dress that’s what will shine through.

    I’m going to disagree with your statement that the Agatha photographs nicely. Personally I don’t think it does. The Penelope on the other hand? Damn. It’s absolutely stunning and I promise you have not made the wrong choice.

    A professional photographer will make any dress look fantastic. Snap shots you took in a store not looking amazing are not a sign that a dress doesn’t photograph welll.

    The dress you picked it gorgeous! How you feel in the dress when you actually had it on is what is important.

    Nope, you made the right choice.  I love the color, fit, style.. how many times have we seen lace sweetheart top and flowy plain bottom, with a different color belt?  I see you with beautiful silver earrings and silver shoes and a confident smile that you chose the right one 🙂

    They both look amazing on you! I don’t think you can go wrong with either. I think comfort factor is a big deal so if it were me I would have chosen the Penelope as well.

    if you FELT the most beautiful in the Penelope then its definitely the one! I understand how you feel because my two final choices were a beautiful figure hugging ivory sparkly traditional wedding dress which was on sale, and the dress I did pick which was an A line blush dress. Part of my brain was telling me I should pick the traditional ivory dress because it looked more ‘bridal’, but I FELT like a princess in the other dress, even though the ivory dress was just as beautiful. On the day I was dancing on a cloud I’ve never felt so pretty in my life. The Penelope definitely looks like a million bucks on you and because you feel so stunning in it it will translate on the day beautifully 🙂

    The bridal salon I purchased my dress from actually doesn’t allow photographs of any dress other than the one you buy and this is the reason! Cell phone photographs in bad lighting just don’t do the dresses justice. Go with your gut- Penelope is your girl!

    Re-read your post… you’re absolutely gushing about Penelope! Why on earth would you pick a different one that makes you think ‘this is ok’ when you’ve got one that makes you feel utterly beautiful?? It’s so floaty and ethereal. Plus, comfort is a massive factor. It’s very easy to see where your heart lies, so you made the right choice. Pus I don’t even think one photographs better than the other. I freaked out a little after buying my dress because I had a horrible phone snapshot taken by my BM. That’s why you hire a professional photographer! You can’t even compare what you look like in a store snapshot to what you’ll look like in all your finery in a professional shoot.
