    I think between these two I definitely prefer dress A!!  It’s hard to love it bc as you said, it’s way too big.  But I can envision what it would look like when it’s tailored to you and hugs your body correctly, it would be a knock out dress!  I say stay with this one!  Or if you still aren’t really loving it, keep shopping.  But between these two, definitely A.  Have you tried having someone clamp the dress for you? 

    At bridal stores, I tried on dresses that were several sizes too large, but when the girl would clamp the dress ultra tight on me, I could see what it would look like in the right size and it helped SO SO SO much  – I’d suggest doing that before you pay the expenses for alterations just to be 100% sure you’re going to love it when it fits properly

    I just read some of the other comments – it sounds like B is your dress!  So ignore whatever I said about A lol.  Ultimately it’s whatever YOU love and feel beautiful and bridal in… which one got you excited?  That’s what matters!

    Dress B definitively. I can give you a few pounds if you would like. 🙂

    @FutureMrsHarris2014:  Dress A is WOW!

    Dress B–it’s ok. I don’t like the hard horizontal line of the skirt, dresses like that always make me think of cheap design. I like the materials, though–the lace paired with the applique organza is nice!

    But dang, that first dress is really a power dress.

    I LOVE dress A.  It’s so romantic but not overdone.  However, I am with you 100% in not being someone who can “see” how it would look on me with alterations.  I think you have to go with what makes you feel the most comfortable.  If you can get someone to clamp it correctly that would obviously help.  I’m a cautious person so I would go with the dress I know I can see on my body correctly, but that’s just me.  

     

    Good luck!

    @FutureMrsHarris2014:  I absolute love dress A. I think the bodice is so pretty. I know it’s hard to tell with it being too big as I cried through two dress fittings thinking my dress was horrible for the same reason. I think you should withold judgement, get the dress altered, and then see how you feel.

    When Dress A is fitted to you properly, it (and you) will be beautiful.  I think the unique details on the dress give it a wow factor you don’t get on Dress B.
