    @chateau2013:  I think that both areequally flattering. And, both have similar fabric (which I like. )

    Now I am not a fan of horizontal lines on the skirt. They always remind me of SPanish Senorita dresses. But I think that dress number 2 is really pretty, and I think that the lace on it is prettier and richer looking than in dress #1.

    So–I think that fo rme dress #2 has the edge.

    I love the first dress with the belt!  I also love the veil shown with that dress in the third pic. The melissa sweet is also beautiful (I love how the lace sparkles) but I’m not a huge fan of the layers at the bottom.  Plus the bodice of the first one looks gorgeous on you. :).

    I really like the Monique Lhuillier with the belt.  It looks nice on its own, but the belt really makes it pop.  The other dress looks nice on you, but I think the Monique Lhuillier looks amazing on your body.

    #1 for sure! I dont like the tiers on that material . my dress was tiered too but it was alencon lace so it was a bit more structured? idk if thats the right word.. but the second one looks like the tiers are just hanging there. #1 is super gorg w the belt!  If you are looking for tiered try Rivini Dari that was my dress and its TO DIE FOR gorgeous!

    I actually LOVE #2!!! I think it flatters your figure more.But I would go with a different belt. I don’t really like how #1 looks from the side.

    #1!! I think #2 doesn’t flatter your figure as much because it does not hug you underneath the chest and give you that curve that #1 does if that makes any sense.

    I think both are equally flattering, but I much prefer the Lhuillier, with the belt. The asymmetrical ruching/draping is much more elegant. I find the tiers of the second the dress (particularly the first seam, at the drop waist) kind of distracting for some reason. I also have a personal preference for non-beaded lace, more delicate. 🙂

    #2 is sooo romantic and soft on you but I’m loving your figure in #1. Definitely #1 for me!
