I am in need of some good opinions and perhaps a little help. I tried on about 16 dresses between Lovely Bride and BHLDN.
I feel in love with the color/lace of one dress but the fit of another.
Dress A has a vintage feel that I love. Particularly the rough edges of the lace and the champagne color. But I am not wild about the way the dress drapes.
Dress B on the other hand fits me perfectly. It hangs in all the right places and I felt beautiful in it. But I don’t think the white color and the all-over beading fits my venue. We are having our wedding at my former boss’ country estate. Outdoor tents, barn, lake. It’s basically going to be a rustic-chic wedding but I don’t think the dress reads “rustic enough.”
Give me your thoughts? 🙂

DesiMercedes: I actually think Dress A is a bit more flattering in the cut. But go with the dress you love most and that IN PERSON looked the best. No one will criticize you for having beads on your gown when your wedding is rustic.

DesiMercedes: Dress B gets my vote. Like you I’m unsure of dress A because of how the material falls. Let us know which one you pick! That style of dress really suits you.

dress B is amazing, and definitely will fit into the vibe. It’s all in how you accessorize! The pattern of the beading with the larger flowers DEFINITELY reads rustic.

Dress B is so beautiful! It’s not 100% rustic, but it still fits the vibe. Of course you have to be slightly glitzy so to me its the perfect choice!

It’s a bit hard to tell in your photos, but I actually think Dress A looks better on you. You know how they look in person, though, and you should go with what you feel best in. Beads and sparkles don’t disqualify a dress from fitting a rustic venue.

DesiMercedes: I’d keep looking. You only tried on 16 and there’s no point settling after that few
