    You look STUNNING in both dresses!

    I prefer ball gowns, so my vote is there, but you will look drop dead gorgeous no matter which dress you choose.

    What feels better? When I tried on fitted dresses, I found them more uncomfortable to sit in.

    What’s your venue like? I think the ball gown looks more romantic but the fitted dress looks more elegant/sexy!

    Wow you really DO look amazing in both! Could you get a cheaper fitted dress for the late night reception or something?

    You look great in both! Do you want to be a more traditional bride or a super sexy bride? Which is better suited to your venue?

    Oh gosh, I can see why you’re struggling with this decision, you look absolutely stunning in both! I think the ballgown is more classic bridal with a modern twist and the fitted dress is more sexy & sophisticated. I think your venue & the general “feel” of your wedding may play a part in this decision for you. Also, which one was more comfortable? I found fitted dresses were more flattering on my body but I didn’t find them comfortable and the thought of sitting, getting in & out of a vehicle or peeing was a nightmare lol

    Both look stunning on you but I’m in love with the ballgown. The delicate straps and the flowy train are gorgeous and it still shows off your figure without having to be too fitted.

    My vote is for the ballgown. It looks more bridal and the train is great! 🙂 Personally, I wouldn’t pass up the chance to wear a ballgown.

    With your amazing figure that fitted gown is everything! Talk about a show stopper. I think the ball gown is lovely too but the way you look in the fitted – no question is go for that! Congratulations (and both gorgeous choices!)

    Wear what makes you feel beautiful and comfortable both mentally and physically. You want to be relaxed as much as possible on your wedding day. 

    I had a friend with the same dilemma and she made her decision based on the thought that we have many opportunities to wear fitted dresses to parties, as a guest at weddings etc but really, the opportunity to wear a ballgown is few and far between.

    I know if I were you and I went with a dress that was different from what I envisioned, I’d be sad about my choice further down the road. It’s more likely you can wear a fitted dress in the future. A ball gown is less likely to be worn at any other occasion.
