- Wedding: March 2002
@ all bees: what was it like when you found THE dress?
@garaninc: Both dresses are beautiful and in all honesty, I think you should wear the one that you feel the most beautiful in regardless of what other people think. After all, it is YOU that will be wearing the dress, not them. Go with what willl make you happy.
while i think the 2nd dress is gorgeous, first 1 seems more appropriate for Destination Wedding in punta cana
Which one will be easier to transport on a plane and get the wrinkles out of? Also, which fabric does the best in the tropics? Both really important concerns! You don’t want sweat rings on satin in all of your pictures!
Also, your wedding is almost 2 years away…purchasing a gown now really leaves you vulnerable to dress regret and buying a second gown out of haste!
First one for sure!!
I like the first one.
the second one is so classy and hollywood , i love it
Both gorgeous but I prefer the 2nd one.
I actually love both of them so I completely see why you are torn! So, here are my thoughts:
Dress one- beautiful! The only thing is that the skirt is more “modern”. Ask yourself, when I look back on pictures, will I think “wow, that was trendy?” Or will you still say “I look classic.
Dress two- so glamorous! Like the other bees said, without a picture of you, it’s hard to tell. I think that satin can sometimes be hard to wear because it may accentuate you in places that you don’t want to be accentuated. Since it is more form fitting in the front, make sure that you are comfortable with the way it looks.
@garaninc: you already know I love the first since it’s my dress too. 🙂
It’s super fun and light weight. I know we haven’t seen you in it and I see what you mean why, but you said that you were told to wait which is good as well but remember it’s your wedding and the dress that you have to wear… so if that’s the dress that you keep coming back to and see yourself in Punta Cana wearing thatn don’t let anyone else influence your decision. It wasn’t my mom’s first choice, but she saw me in other dresses and whenever I put Dere Kiang back on they noticed how I light up in it and it was for me, so she accepted it.
I hope you’ll go with what you want for you and post lots of pictures, after the wedding! 🙂
I like the first one. Go with your gut.
I am having the same issue. I am in love with a dress that no one elses likes but it’s your day and ur dress. You have to be happy.
i really like the first one
