    Both gorgeous! Think Dress A in Ivory would look great but you really cannot go wrong with either of those options!

    Although one of the characteristics of a ballgown is a full skirt, not all ballgowns have super big skirts (and some of them you can take down by having a layer or two of the underskirt removed).  A ball gown is characterized by having the skirt start at the natural waist along with a fitted bodice and full skirt.

    A-line is similar but can have a variety of skirt options starting to flare from the waist but is more fitted in the hips than ballgown.

    You will probably want to focus on natural waist no dropped waist) and fuller skirt (whether that is a-lines or ballgown).  For up top you’ll likely look best with a deep v or sweetheart and want to avoid cap sleeves or spaghetti straps.

    I think you should keep looking! Those dresses are pretty but I think you can do better! I agree with  annabananabee :  Look for something with a fuller skirt, natural waist, sweetheart neckline. I felt the same way about my dress options when I was shoppig for my first wedding. I liked a few dresses but none of them blew me away. When I found my dress, I didn’t have that “bridal moment” but it instantly became the dress I compared every other dress to and nothing else even came close. Go to a bridal salon with lots of inentory and tell them what you have liked about previous dresses, then let your consultant pull some dresses for you. I would have NEVER tried on my dress without the consultant saying “Just try it on for style, you dont have to buy it” haha!

    I like the waist and fuller skirt of dress 2 but like the bodice of dress 1 (if only the waist wasn’t so low). I think deep v looks great on you.

    Dress B but obviously fitted in ur size… I like how it has coverage already in a unique way vs dress a which will be added sheer.  I also think its just prettier n fits u better

    You look great in dress 2. I love the way the modesty panel has a touchof detail to it s =o it looks specialand is not just “filler”. I like the pink colour and the ivory too… both suit you.

    I prefer Dress B on you, However, have you tried a fit n flare? I think that would hug your figure beautifully.

    I like dress B better the belt is in a good spot and highlights your waist. Dress A the waist is to low it’s not as flattering

    I prefer C as the skirt is equally lovely but the top is a little more discrete.
