Very pretty! I like the back of a lot, though without the train, but keep the very top bow on the dress.

@Clara17: Pretty dress but this looks nothing like what you described you wanted. Im not a fan of the bunching on the bodice above the sash.  when you tried this on how did it look on you? ore importantly how did you feel in it?  If you aren’t certain this is the one, keep looking. I have seen some very pretty non-strapless dresses with tulle skirts and longer trains.

A lot of times, brides pick things they did not envision for themselves.  It’s a very pretty gown and quite elegant.  I’m also a huge pronovias fan.  But if you cant commit, keep shopping.  You never know, you may find your gown, or figure out this is the dress for you.

Unless you completely and utterly head-over-heels in LOVE with it, keep looking!

Personally I think the Delila is a really beautiful dress, it’s classic and regal and very elegant. I think you would need a certain body shape and a bit of height to pull it off, I don’t think it would be the best choice for super-curvy or very petite girls. I love the buttons and the bow detail at the back. The second dress you posted would be more universally flattering, I think, but it’s almost much more of a princess dress and not as unique as the Delila.

@Clara17:  It’s beautiful and really elegant. The fabric isn’t what I personally would want, but I don’t see a problem with it overall. I like the idea of taking off some of the bows and just leaving one, it’ll make it look even classier. This is a really lovely, timeless dress and I think you should go for it. I’m not crazy about the way that the train looks and think it would be better off, but ballgowns with trains also look weird and awkward so I don’t think that should be a deciding factor.

If you really hate the fabric maybe you could have it made up in a different material by one of those custom Chinese shops? I don’t really know much about that, though.

ETA: I’m talking about the Dalila, just in case there’s any confusion over the pictures of the other dress that you posted.

As PP’s mentioned it seems like you have an idea for a dress in your mind and the Dalila sure isn’t tulle and ‘princessy’. BUT then again I haven’t seen any real-life princesses get married in tulle, only the Disney kind. Check out Victoria of Sweden and Charlotte of Monaco, their dresses are very similar to the Dalila. So I would say BOTH kinds of dresses are fit for a princess! 🙂

Personally I love both dresses, they’re just very different, so it depends on the vibe you want to have for your wedding.

If you like the Dalila but aren’t sure, may I suggest you look at Ros Clara and Two by Rosa Clara if it’s available in your area? The have a big ballgown dress, bateau neckline and a long train you might like: http://www.rosaclara.es/en/vestido/10/226-delfin-829.html
