@bride2013bride: I don’t think they look alike at all. To be honest the bottom of the first gown looks like something straight out of a Georgia O’Keefe painting. It looks like a vagina. I’m sorry if that is crass but that’s what I immediately thought of!

@Hyperventilate: I TOTALLY agree on the vagina call – that’s all I could think of looking at it (especially the location of the vagina).
OP, the two dresses don’t look alike at all! I’m not surprised your fiance didn’t like the first dress – personally, I think it’s hideous, but I’m sure he’ll love you in the second one!

@peonyinparis: Ohhhh, that bridal party look is just overly done: too tanned, too skinny, trying too hard to be–fashionable? I’m not sure what the bride’s goal really was. I guess that Hollywood Hooker is the theme.

I think he will love your dress. There is not that much similarity between the two you posted. Yours is beautiful so don’t worry about it. 🙂

Rest assured men have no concept of dresses and fashion. Also he may not like the stock photo but when he sees the dress on you he will love it. I showed my FI my dress on the stock photo and he loved it. Then I showed him the dress on me (in a photo my head cut off so he didn’t know it was me) and he was like “That’s kind of a plain dress”. Don’t stress out over it, those two dresses look nothing alike and he will think you look gorgeous in anything. And as I said he’s a man, his opinion doesn’t matter lol 🙂

@bride2013bride: the dresses are completely different. That first dress is showy on top, to put it politely and takes the whole “vagina skirt” thing to a new level. Your dress is flowy and gorgeous. I don’t think they are at all similar.

I opened this thread and saw the first dress in the picture. I liked it, but then I read your husband’s comments and now I can’t stop seeing the resemblance between the skirt and toilet paper rolls.
The skirt for your dress is totally different though. And by the way, your dress is beautiful.

I don’t think those two dresses are very similar. And yours is gorgeous! No matter what, your fiance will love your dress because you are wearing it!

The dress is completely different. I really like your dress and honestly I don’t think the other one is that pretty. I think he will be amazed just seeing you that day. 🙂

1. the dresses don’t look anything alike, especially the toilet paper area of the first dress
2. guys cant picture dresses on women well. heck, even i cant. show him the same dress on a model and on a real bride, or on a mannequin etc i bet he wont be able to tell theyre the same dress. he’ll be focused on YOU

@bride2013bride: I did the same thing, asked my fiance if the two dresses looked the same and he said NO. So, if you’re confident and you feel the second dress is the dress you’re meant to be married in, get married in it! Your man will think it’s beautiful because YOU’RE wearing it.

@bride2013bride: i don’t think the two dresses are similar at all! In the nicest words possible, I’m not a fan of the first dress. The second dress, however is beautiful! I think you made a great choice and I’m sure he is going to love you in it!!
