    I think the first one is really pretty and understated. The 2nd is definately unexpected but doesnt give off the ohhh and ahh of a bride ya know? Also the cut and belted waisteline of the 1st will be much more flattering in general. (this is what actually ulitmately led me to pick my dress).

       You need to decide which one is more flattering and more “right”
     for the occassion you are planning. What i think often happens to brides who end up buying a dress and returning it or regretting or even end up with 2 3 or 4 (?!) dresses is that they buy one that just makes you feel good and forget to think out how it will fit into your overall wedding vision and design aesthetic. (Hope that helps!) either way though they are both really really pretty. Try and picture your dream wedding and imagine yourself walking through the big doors (what do you see yourself in?) ๐Ÿ™‚

    Maggie hands down for me.  It looks fabulous on you. You look happy and confident in it.

    From what you’ve written you seem to have a lot of enthusiasm about the two-tone dress, which is a good sign! You like the wow factor but seem reluctant to choose it because it’s not all white. Do you think you could find a different white dress that has a similar wow factor – something ‘wow’ because of the details, or the cut, or another aspect? For example, you could have a white dress with a colourful petticoat, shoes and/or sash. There are plenty of ways to make a simple, traditional dress more ‘wow’ and unique.

    I think wait another week (at least!) and see how you feel. Trust your gut!

    In my honest opinion, I find the 2nd dress to be  a prettier dress in general and it is very flattering on you even without fitting you properly! But it’s not what myself or any other bees think is more attractive. It’s what you think!

    And from your description of the two dresses it sounds like you have already chosen the 2nd dress. Don’t feel guilty that it’s not an all white “bridal” dress. Everyone will know that you’re the bride and that you’re wearing a bridal gown on your wedding day, regardless of which dress you choose. Wear the dress that you feel gorgous and confident in!

    I do like dress number 2.  I picked a dress that was a bit “different” and I am still excited about it.  You just have to remember to make your decision and stick to it.  I dont’ think anyone will see the two tone and say eh why is she wearing that.

    They are both beautiful dresses, but I love the first one.

    I personally like the first dress better, but it is really about how you feel about them. If you get that perfect feeling about #2, go with it! It does look really good on you, and is really flattering.

    You look great in the second dress, and it also seems like you like it more.  In which case, you should get it.

    You look hot in that second dress! It’s definitely bridal, even in the two-tone. And you definitely seem much more excited about it ๐Ÿ™‚
