Hi bees, I am stuck deciding between 2 dresses.
I have already bought 2, and need assistance deciding on which looks better on me, and also which one you think suits the style of our wedding more.
We are holding the wedding and reception at a gorgeous place called Villa Vivante, overlooking the Australian ocean ( http://villavivante.com/ )
The first dress is one made by Brides Desire, by Airs and Graces – style is Cassandra. My concern with this one is that although it has beautiful beading, the way that it stops at my waist cuts me off and makes my torso look short.
The second dress is an Allure, style 2515. I love the way the fabric delicately ruches accross the bodice and also across the back, it feels more delicate, but I don’t know if it is ‘weddingy’ enough.Your help in deciding is much appreciated!

Ok pictures should be up now.
I’ll paint a better picture of the vibe we are going for… we are staying at the house for several days before the wedding with our bridal party, and then plan on having a fairly relaxed ceremony and reception with about 80 geusts with the main focus on being in a gorgeous place, with our loved ones and having a really fun celebration.
I just hope I have picked the perfect dress(es!)

Second dress! I usually dont’ like one shoulder dresses but it does SO MUCH for your figure!! And I like the buttons vs. the corset.

I like the first one! I think it is more unique and bridal. But you look stunning in both!

what a terrible problem! to look amazing in 2 dresses! 😉
I love them both.. you can’t go wrong but I prefer the second!

I love the back of the first one, but I like the front of the second one more 😉 Lol. I wish you could put them together. I voted 2! Especially with your venue. It just seems to… fit, somehow. You, that dress, the venue… they all somehow go really well!
Sooo jealous of your venue btw! Really beautiful. Totally what we wanted to do, but we’re in the wrong part of the world =( haha

Thanks for the feedback bees! I have been leaning towards the Allure 2515 but I just wanted to make sure by getting honest opionions from people who don’t know me, and the majority of you have voted for this one.
There was one more dress which I will show below, just for people who want to get an idea of what dresses look like on real brides, and not the models online.
This dress was the one that almost was, if only it had more support.
Allure 8800 –
I fell in love in the store when I tried this dress on. I love the detailing, lace and the low cut back of this dress. However I hated it when I looked back at the photos from the front of the dress. As it didn’t have any boning like the other 2 dresses, I felt like it just didn’t do anything for my figure and gave me a tiny pooch belly and didn’t pull me in at the waist as much as the other two.
Everyone who came with me to my try on’s kept saying it wasn’t noticeable, but I didn’t want to be self conscious of of on my big day, hence the decision to go with the other two styles.

The second dress is definitely my favorite as well. It also looks like it would match the style of your wedding much more than the first.
It looks as though you’re already leaning toward the Allure … I just thought I’d tell you it’s a great choice! You look stunning in it!
