    Dress 2 for sure…I just find that the first dress does nothing for your figure. The second dress just seems to suit your figure much better.

    I prefer the David’s bridal dress.  It’s youthful and modern…it makes the other dress look a bit matronly.

    They are both beautiful, but I do like the second one better. I think it is very flattering on you!

    wow this was a tough choice for me and its not even my dress. I think they both are beautiful, but i picked the 1st dress because of the flowers and design. I hope this helps.

    They do both look great, but I personally LOVE the dress from David’s.  I first spied it on their website shortly after I bought my dress (I wasn’t cheating, just scoping out Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses!) and now that I see it on you, rather than the model, I have even MORE serious dress envy.  LOL.  What helped me decide on mine was looking at the pictures.  Seeing them in real life was hard because I couldn’t put them on side-by-side and compare.  So just stare at the pics for awhile and sooner or later, you’ll start having fonder feelings toward one over the other…  Hope that helps!

    In my opinion, the Casablanca blows the DB dress out of the water.

    Can you alter the sash in any way on Dress 1 to remove what FH doesn’t like? Put a different sash or flower on instead?

    I really like #1 🙂

    And I think prices MAY go up in July because new lines come out? Not sure. But, if new lines are coming out, then there might be more options in your price point, so I wouldn’t be too concerned about it.

    I had a similar dress as you (not really similar but somewhat) for #2 and my alterations were only $100 for a simple bustle, take the dress up and in.  The bustle didn’t bother me at all and looked really cute I thought, all she did was add a loop at the bottom of the dress and a clear button to hook it to.  I’d shop around for alteration pricing or haggle with your store a bit but I like #2 the best

    They are both lovely, but it depends what look you want to go for.  DB is more modern, and slightly less formal.  It’s more unique and wins the contest for me.  Casablanca is more formal and traditional. If you are that torn, maybe you should do one more shopping trip to try and find a happy medium between the 2.   

    Either way, do not feel the pressure to get your alterations done at the bridal shop, they are often much more expensive than if you went elsewhere.  Shop around for local seamstresses that have good references for bridal work.  Mine did a 6-point french bustle for $50. 

    Also, the casablanca looks like it fits you very well.  if it is in good shape maybe go back and offer 75% of the tag price to buy that actual sample dress they put you in.
