    @Megan10513:  Honestly, the first one doesn’t look at all like a wedding dress to me. It looks like a cute sundress that I’d wear to the beach on any given day.

    Both are cute! The first one is lovely, but agree you need to do something with that neckline. Maybe ask your seamstress for suggestions?

    And the second one definitely looks like a wedding dress. If you altered the neckline to a sweetheart I bet it would look gorgeous on you.

    Honestly though, both dresses look very nice. I would personally go to your seamstress and see which one would be cheaper to alter.

    @Megan10513:  Maybe you could wear the first one as a reception dress?

    Both are very cute! But I say, go with what you want! If you love dress 1, then get it. If you are concerned becasue it doesnt look like a wedding dress, add some touches that will make it seems more like a bridal dress (add the lace on the top, and try a petticoat to give it a little bit of pouf-if you want that). You have to remember, you will have hair, makeup, accessories, and a veil, which will make it even more bridal, and make you look amazing on your wedding day! Good luck!

    So, I have been wondering how that BCBG dress would look bridalized, haha. I think you could have a lace insert & maybe some lace around the straps. Or if you like sashes or belts you could add one where the natural waist seam is. That would dress it up a bit.

     

    I love the picture of the model with the flower wreath. So ethereal!

    @Megan10513:  Also, do you plan on wearing your hair up or down? You should try it out with both dresses and see if that makes any difference.

    @Megan10513:  

    I think something like this would look great with your dress. Plus, extensions & braids tend to work well, because the extensions give a bit more texture, so they hold better. Haha, this is getting a bit off topic though! I’m sure things well end up perfectly for you, so best of luck deciding!
