    I honestly like the first better 🙂 the second is definitely a beautiful gown but it is similar to the first. The reason I like the first better is because I think it flows nicer down the dress as opposed to the second where it just poofs out all of a sudden on the bottom. I know this is kinda popular right now so I’m anticipating some disagreement, but for me I love the first one on you and would stick to that one.

    In the end, though, it’s what you want!

    You can always alter the neckline of your original gown to a sweetheart neckline. 

    But with that said I love fit/flare and mermaid style gowns. Thus, I really feel the second dress gives me the WOW factor a bride should have. Again, this is my taste. It just depends on what you want to look like. I will say there is enough difference between the two dresses, so I wouldnot just settle. They are two very different dresses with two different looks.

    Okay first of all I am slightly bias because I am not a fan of lace dresses. However I think the lace overlay on the first dress is much more classy. Its more muted and doesn’t look like my nanna’s curtains. The second one because its more detailed or a different colour or something sticks out more and to me it reminds me of the curtain affect. As i said I could be bias.

    I agree with one of the above commenters that the 1st dress flows much nicer and it really compliments your figure better. I agree you should get the neckline altered to more sweetheart!

    @KLA86:  Add a poll!

    I’m only comfortable saying this because you say that money isn’t the issue..I like the second dress better.  I think you look great in BOTH dresses, but I like the cut of the second dress, the neckline and the skirt… and the look of the lace as well.

    If you got a new dress, would you have enough time to get it purchased and altered?

    If you think that you are going to be thinking about the “other” dress all the way down the aisle and money is not a problem… I’d actually say “go for it”.

    I LOVE the lace of the second dress, so I voted for that one. I can’t really see the detail of the first dress but I’m sure it’s pretty as we’ll.

    Both dresses are beautiful and elegant.  The second dress, primarily because of the close-up detail shots you’ve provided, seems to have a bit more of a “wow” factor.

    HOWEVER — and this is important — I think you may end up liking your wedding pictures more if you stick with your original dress.  I think the AV may give you some added challenges because of the bust line.  My gown had a similar shape, and I’m going to have to have a LOT of my wedding pics edited in Photoshop because of some of them showing too much cleavage or having a “double” chest effect when the more pronounced points on my sweetheart neckline poked into me when I was sitting down.

    Besides, you already HAVE a gorgeous, lace dress. 🙂

    I prefer the second just for the lace and the scalloped neckline. Or, you just have a nice rack 🙂 sorry if that’s totally creeper-like lol

    I love the second one. The scalloped neckline is gorgeous. And the silhouette looks stunning on you!

    Being totally honest, I like 2 much better. I voted before reading because I don’t like to base my vote on money or whatever the situation is, but purely aesthetics. Wile 1 is nice, 2 is a showstopper.

    They’re both lovely gowns, but the back of #1 is so romantic and beautiful, and I prefer the more subtle lace on #1 too.
