So, I’m having trouble deciding what dress to go with… and I need help!
I am completely in love with the sweetheart lace top of the pronovias palas, but the skirt (I feel) is too much for an outdoor wedding… especially the back of the dress.
I LOVE the casablanca 2018 skirt because of the easy flow, but am not as in love with the top as I am with the palas. I know that casablanca allows mixing different tops of their dresses with the bottoms of another… so I tried to put them together. I plan on having a toupe colored sash, so I colored the sash purple…
What do you all think? Should I go with the pronovias as is, or cross my fingers and hope for the best when combining the two casablanca dresses?

I like the first one. The top is beautiful. You could always bustle the train after the ceremony, or leave it bustled the whole day if the train is too much.

They are really similiar! I like the neckline of the Pronovias and it should be possible to alter your Casablanca top to a sweetheart so I guess I would pick the Casablanca!

I like the sweetheart of the first one, but understand why you think the top is too much. I bet you could turn the the casablanca into a sweetheart. I am doing the same with my dress.

The first one doesn’t seem too much for an outdoor wedding. With any wedding, your STD’s/invites/decorations kind of set the mood, so you could do a couple of different things. You could either ‘fancy up’ your wedding, including the venue with your decorations, or you could, like some prior posters have suggested, bustle your dress immediately after the ceremony to give yourself a more relaxed look. Stunning choices, hope this helps!

I voted for #1, but if there is a significant price difference I would go with dress #2 beacuse they are so similar.

Honestly the bottoms look very similar to me, and I think it would be a useless hassle to mix and match when they look so much alike already.
Have you asked if some of the gathers on the first one can be let out? That might solve the problem. I think the top of the first is just lovely.

I’m not really understanding what’s being mixed and matched on the Casablanca either. But I will say that while I do not like pickups myself, I think the pickups on the Pronovias dress look better than on the Casablanca. To me, the only big difference is the train length and I wouldn’t let that stop you from getting the Pronovias dress if that’s what you prefer.

I’d do #1 and just bustle- it is gorgeous on you, I like the top much better and it is less hassle as well.

I think they both look fantastic on you. It’s a win-win no matter what you end up choosing! I picked #1 because that sweetheart neckline looks fabulous on you! Have you looked into getting the Casablanca made into a sweetheart? I also didn’t notice TOO much difference in the skirt. I think both would be appropriate for an outdoor wedding. It’s YOUR day, do what you want! But seriously, two gorgeous dresses that look like they were made for you!
