The first one is a little more classic/classy, whereas the second is more trendy/hip/sexy — which do you want to have memories and pictures of forever? ๐Ÿ™‚

@MandaMack:  How about an a-line with wow?  I have a big issue with the more plain dresses.  Yeah I know, you are supposed to wear the dress, not be “worn” by it and all that.. but darnit, I figure this is my one day to let my true “over the top” personality shine.  And I do have an inner diva.  She’s just buried in laziness and lack of funds. 

So, I understand the classic simplicity but also the desire for WOW.  I would try and find WOW with comfort. ๐Ÿ™‚

I think they both look great on you, but I do think comfort is important. There’s no point in spending all this money on a dress then being in pain the day of your wedding! I do think you could probably get the second one let out just slightly where feathery skirt part starts so that your knees don’t hurt.  Or, with the first one, have you tried it on with a long veil that might help add more detail/interest?

haha i feel the same way sometimes… both dresses look fab on you. the alfred angelo gown is actually advertised as a ball gown rather than a-line.. i guess the model looks different in it cos she probably has crinoline under it.

That second dress is wow! It looks like an expensive, high-end designer dress. I get the comfort thing but the first dress doesn’t compare IMO…I would get the second dress in a bigger size and have the waist/hips altered to fit you. It doesn’t have to be that tight above the knees, it’s the curves above that that give the nice silhouette. I wore a trumpet and my legs weren’t smushed at all, that sounds like the dress doesn’t fit you right.

@MandaMack:  I like beading but not in excess.  I was thinking more of  a-line with texture. Wink

You look great in both of them, but I actually gasped outloud when I saw you in the second one!  It looks amazing on you.  I second what meliss said above; the right size of the dress likely would be more comfortable, and you’d have that wow favour that you’re after!
