Hi Bees! I’m in deep need of your help! I cannot decide between these two very different dresses. I keep going back and forth because I love things about both of them.
Pro- I love love love the bodice of this one. It is to die for!!! I didn’t think I liked anything sparkly (besides my ring of course lol) but this bodice shimmers rather than sparkles and the beading is detailed into a pattern, which I love. This style is so romantic!
Con – I’m not sure I’m totally in love with the skirt. I tried to switch out the skirt to something else but it just didn’t seem to work. I think the designer chose this specific skirt to go with this bodice because the bodice should really be the focus. It’s very pretty, but I’m just not sure it fits my personality. I’m a little more fun and bubbly and this shape feels a little too simple for me. Like it doesn’t have enough oomph?
Pro- This style probably fits my personality more. The skirt is so much fun! And there’s the right amount of pouf for me to feel like a bride. The shape is very flattering on my body and even though the style is very young and fun, the tulle really makes it romantic.
Con- Is this too simple in the fact that there’s no lace and/or beading? All the dresses I showed the consultants were of more intricate tops and simple bottoms, but this dress is the opposite! The details are in the skirt. My friend was surprised that I loved this dress so much because she thought I had wanted more in terms of details.
Sorry for such a long post (and thank you for those that made it this far). I know this is a good problem – to have options, but it’s a problem nonetheless lol. Any input would be greatly appreciated! Thank you so much!

a sh*t you look bloody fab in both!
I like both dresses for the exact reasons you mentioned… so I guess i’m no help… when i saw #1 I said WOW but both are amazing dresses.

The second one is my dream dress.
It sounds like you prefer the first… if it was altered would the skirt look better?
Can you find a mermaid with a bodice like the first dress? I think that would be perfect on you!

LOL! That was very nice of you to say!!! The confidence boost might be the most important thing to help me with haha

I really love the second dress too! Haha this is why I can’t decide!
We tried on different skirts to swap it out with and it really just didn’t work? I’m really not confident enough to wear a mermaid dress though lol

They both look gorgeous on you. Imagine yourself in your venue. Which dress do you picture yourself wearing?

I voted for the second, but it was a close call. Both are gorgeous and you look absolutely stunning in them both!

Normally I would pick the style of the first over the second but the second looks so good on you that I had a to pick it.

You look incredible in both, but I voted to keep looking! I was in a very similar situation where i had 2 dresses i loved, but there was something about both that i wanted more from, then i ended up finding one with beautiful detail on the top and skirt, just the way i wanted (and sounds like we have similar taste), so i think continue your search, and you can always come back to those two if you don’t find any you prefer.

I literally cannot pick, you look equally lovely in both of them and I love both the dresses so much! Number 2 probably has the edge for me personally, purely because I LOVE stripes and it is my absolute dream to have a stripey dress. But you honestly look perfect in both.

I would go for the 2nd dress and add a sparkly belt.

I’m probably going to be no help but I just wanted to say you look absolutely amazing in both!
I really really love number 1 but that’s probably because it reminds me a lot of my dress. But if you don’t love the skirt then maybe it’s not the one? The skirt is a big part of the dress!
Number 2 is also amazing, I love the skirt it’s so fun and unique and it is so flattering on you! I guess have a think about whether or not you’d regret not having a more detailed dress?
You could always keep looking for one that combines both aspects you love!
Or imagine not getting either, and then see if you feel sad at the thought of not getting to wear one of them 🙂

I really like the first one better personally. I love the attention to detail in the bodice
