    I normally am not a fan of pickups but I think the second dress really flatters you!

    I’m not very well versed in style numbers, so I’m not sure which picture is which dress, but I will say this – they are both beautiful dresses, but I think the dress in pics 3 and 4 elongates you and makes you look a little taller. I guess it also depends on the type of wedding you’re having…I think the lace one would be very pretty for a outdoor/garden-type setting, while the other one is a bit more formal.

    Also, I don’t know if this helps you at all, but here’s my experience as a 2 dress bride. I bought a dress I liked, freaked out at the 2nd fitting, started looking again, found another dress that was a great deal and bought it. After fully altering that dress as well, I realized I was rather hasty in buying that 2nd dress, that I really do like my first choice, and now I’m going to have to try and sell the 2nd one. And I’ve heard that selling a wedding dress isn’t necessarily as easy as it sounds. You may just be having those normal wedding dress doubts – almost everyone does. And yeah, it might be a good idea to stop looking : )

    I know this didn’t really give you an answer, but hopefully it will help in some way!

    I honestly think you look awesome in both. I saw the lace and thought how beautiful you were and then the second one looked amazing on you too. they are so different though – which one is the vibe that you want to feel like a bride?

    I wouldn’t worry about what your friends think. Everyone has such different taste and you are wearing the dress, not them. This is why I don’t want to show many people the dress I choose – it leaves too much room for doubting!!

    Both dresses are lovely and with the right fit, will look great on you.

    I agree that selling a dress may not be very easy. Especially a lower-price-point dress.

    Both are lovely but I think you look awesome in the lace one. Why not maske a poll for this?

    I LOVE the Casablanca and I’m personally not a fan of pick-ups. You look beautiful in both though!

    Also consider the type of wedding you’re having. The Casablanca (to me) would suit a garden-themed, slightly more casual wedding whereas the Paloma would be for a more black-tie, formal affair.

    God, you look amazing in the Paloma Blanca. So elegant, regal, tall, feminine, powerful. I’m blown away, honestly. And I hate to tell you that because I know it’s not the dress you have. It’s just awesome how good you look in the Paloma Blanca!
