    I honestly think the top of  both of the skirts are a bit too much, they seem to swallow you up a bit! Have you tried something similar but with a bit slimmer at the hips?

    I really dislike the 2nd dress, not on you, but just in general. I do not think it’s anything special at all. You look like a PRINCESS in the first dress. I voted for that one. However, the first dress looks a bit less poofy on the model than on you. I wonder if the dress was brand new to the store? If so, it may need to be smushed down a bit (which would happen to your dress when it comes in, too – brand new dresses are just a bit stiffer usually).

    But, I do think you should keep looking since they’re a bit too much/too poofy. You can always take some crinoline out though, so there’s that.

    I think the first gown is so beautiful (one of my favourite Veras) and would look really good with your FI’s military uniform. I know that sounds strange, but I think the bodice embellishment is really regal-looking, and the self-stripe detail in the skirt is more modern and preppy – and both of those elements fit really well with a military look while managing to keep that sense of romance. I LOVE that gown on you, it’s also incredibly flattering and makes your waist look tiny without adding bulk to your bottom half (as a lot of ballgowns tend to).

     

    The second gown is not one of my favourites – in the pink, it adds some interest, but in the white, it really seems clear that the peplum/overskirt looks like an afterthought. And it’s far less flattering than the first gown.
