I really like the Etsy one. I think it would look even better with a slip/mermaid crinolin under to poof out the bottom part a bit so it looks more balanced, if that makes sense?
But I wouldn’t discount the dressilyme one until you try it on 🙂

They’re both gorgeous but the Etsy dress does seem more appropriate for a garden wedding. The dressilyme dress (which I sooo want to steal! lol) looks like something better suited to a formal church wedding.

If you can, I would do the Dressily me for the ceremony and the other for reception. Although, I wouldn’t make the decision until you try on the Dressily.
I’m very similar measurements to you and the Etsy one on you, I would have never thought you were more pear shaped. It creates a perfect hourglass silhouette.

@BluePurple90: You look GORGEOUS in the Etsy dress!! You have an amazing figure and the etsy dress shows it off in all the right ways! Plus I absolutely love the back.
Etsy for sure!
And for the people commenting that the Etsy dress is too short in the front…. I totally thought that was the STYLE! Meant to show off some awesome wedding shoes!! Which only makes me love the dress more… I went with blue shoes, but no one got to see them, which I kind of regret!

I love the dressily me one, but that’s just my kind of style. You couldn’t go wrong with either dress honestly.

I think both dresses are very beautiful. It is hard to compare the dressily one because it is not on you. But I love the grace kelly look. But the etsy dress is beautiful and the button and lace details are wow.
Like the others say wear both. I think grace kelly for the ceremony and lace with sexy curves for the reception.
Also I would add a belt to the lace one then it will draw your waist in even more.

@BluePurple90: In my opinion, you just can’t beat Grace Kelly. She was always so classic, and “classic” is what I would personally want in a dress. Not that the first one isn’t classic, but the second one really takes my breath away.

you’re going to have two dresses… what’s your plan once you have both and decide on one? Will you sell the other?
I would wait and see what the other one looks like and go from there.

I was thinking I’d sell one. I’m not the type of girl who wants to leave the party and get changed. It will probably be a one dress wedding, the reception and ceremony are at the same place and it’s a casual small affair, so I probably will sell one.

thanks 🙂 it wasn’t the plan originally, but I didn’t want it dragging to trip me up in the day 🙂
the more I think about it, the more I love the idea!
I want really lovely blue flats, I think it would look so cool 🙂
and I don’t know if I can go past a dress that makes me look that good!

and anyone else interested, my Gressily Me one arrived today… Can’t say I’m keen on the way it looks on me.
I ADORE the sleeves and the back view of the bodice, but it doesn’t make me look anything special… I think
I think Etsy has won the battle 🙂 but let me know if i’m wrong 🙂
Sorry they are huge!!!!
