So after showing a few of my family members all of the pictures from past dress shopping, a few of them are making me second guess my pick…. The one that everyone keeps gauking at is the one that was my runner up. I love both dresses but in my opinion the dress I picked is more “me” simple toned down and hey it makes me waist look itsy bitsy. The runner up was a bit more loud if you will…and a bit more exensive. That was one of the reasons that I turned away from the dress. I’m all for the dress of your dreams but going over like $700 for a dress you’ll wear once is a little iffy for me….I even had a problem spending the $700,
So with all of that being said…in reference to looks of the dresses did I pick the wrong one ladies?! I love my dress but I couldn’t help but question it when I saw their reactions.
This is the dress I picked…it is going to have a slip to make it a bit bigger.
And this was my runner up.

@blushbambi: I like the first one the simple one is more flattering, that is more my style too , just because others like something different doesn’t mean you should second guess yourself, it’s just tier opinion. my opinion is the 2nd one is too fru fru lol

You made the right choice! The shape of 2 is very severe and it looks a little….cheap? The first is very romantic

I like the one you chose so much more than your runner up because 1) your pick has the same color tulle and top-the other’s tulle is yellow and looks dingy, 2) your pick’s sweetheart neckline is deeper and more flattering, 3) your pick’s top fabric is more delicate looking whereas the other looks visually bulky and messy. I like the fullness of the skirt of the one you didn’t pick- the way it poofs out immediately whereas your pick is a hit more A-line. But that detail doesn’t make up for all the other reasons why your pick was the better choice.

Your dress is romantic and ethereal. The runner up is hideous. Curves are wonderful, but no woman’s hips would look good in that dress.

Your dress is a million times better than the runner up! It’s much more flattering and it’s pretty, girly and romantic without being over the top and swallowing you up. It’s really quite perfect, I love it to bits 🙂
The runner up actually looks quite “severe” if you know what I mean. It reminds me of something Snow Queen would wear. I never knew a tulle ballgown could look severe but this one does!

No No No!! Stick with your number one choice. In my humble opinion it is 10000x nicer than your runner up

Bluh the runner up looks like a bodice made of toilet paper. You definitely made the right pick! Once you add the extra underskirt they’ll ooh and aww it too.
