    Personally I like dress #2 better, but you should really go with the one you love. If dress 2 doesn’t give you the same feelings that dress 1 does, you shouldn’t get it.

    They look so similar I can’t vote.  The 2nd one just looks like it may be the 1st dress kicked up a notch.  (longer train, more sparkles).  Whatever one makes you feel amazing, get it.  If you never got that “aha”moment, keep looking.  The last thing you want to do is order a dress that you only like, not love.  You get one white dress in your life.  Make it the perfect one for you.

    I think they look the same.

    Dress two has more bling than dress one, but is that what you want?

    By what you say: I would go with Dress One, because you like it more.

    Or maybe have a going back day and try on both of them again…see what it feels like without eyes staring you down and you are cranky froma long day.


    My mom and I have totally different taste: we would never EVER decide to the same dress. We just had to learn to not say we didn’t like it (because of taste) but we didn’t like it cuz it didn’t look good on my body or etc.

    I like dress #2 better but YOU have to love your dress!

    Are you in love with either of them? If not maybe you should keep looking!

    Good Luck!

    Definitly go with the one you really feel like the beautiful bride that you are in. I didn’t read your comments before I looked at the photos. Personally, I like #1. They are similar, but I like the bust detail on #1.  Both very elegant and beautiful!  Let us know what you decide!  Do you have pics of you in the dress?

    They look too similar for me to choose between the two. But I think you should go with the dress that you feel the best in and since that’s dress 1, I think you should go with that one.

    Like others have said, they are very similar but I really like dress #1 the best!!! I like the way the details on the first dress are scattered on the bust; whereas, the second dress has all of the detail on your chest (kind of looks like a bra on the dress…does that make sense??)

    I would definitely go with the gown that made you feel the best and it sounds like that is dress #1!!! 🙂

    I would go back, and try all the finalists on again.  You don’t want to be second-guessing yourself, a month down the line.  But you have to wear the dress, not your mom!

    can you go back and re-try on both dresses when you’re feeling more fresh and less I-just-spent-all-freaking-day-trying-on-dresses-that-make-me-look-like-a-snowbeast ?

    they look so similar.

    i do prefer the photo of dress #2 but thats because the dress is a slightly different colour in the picture

    They look so similar.  Get the one you love and tell your mother it is the other one and hope she can’t distinguish!
