    urbanteacher :  yes you could have the person doing the alterations add in an opaque under layer to the inside of the dress, which is probably the best option. Alternately you could also just wear a skirt type slip under the dress if adding a layer doesn’t work or is exceptionally expensive.

    Didn’t read anything and looked at the pics only. First dress looks better.

    I love the first dress. It looks so close to mine I thought it was for a minute. I think you look stunning in that one. 

    The second dress does nothing for me. 

    However, at the end of the day you are the one wearing it and you have to pick what you love.

    Go with what you love. When a professional is taking the picture any dress is going to look fabulous!

    The Penelope is a beautiful dress! It looks gorgoeus in the picture. I think you may feel that it doesn’t photograph well, because there is more of a contrast in the sash/belt color against the dress, which gives more definition to your waist. But you have a fantastic figure, and you look great in both dresses.

    My dress also does not photgraph well. It’s beautiful in person, but in photographs, it looks white instead of cream/blush, and it doesn’t look like I have any shape. But, it’s so beautiful in person, that I’m still in love with it.

    urbanteacher :  You mentioned that you would like an ivory dress.  The Penelope has an ivory option if that is a concern for you.  Ask your salon about the colors that the underslip comes in.  If you want to see real brides in the ivory option there were some bees in an older thread that purchased the ivory.  Personally the bronze option has more depth and dimension and will photograph better outside than an ivory dress.

    I love the Penelope. I would suggest trying it on with a crinoline underskirt. Not one that is super poofy, but I feel like it would improve a bit with a tiny bit more volume underneath. It’s honestly the biggest difference between them. The other dress has a little more volume to it.
