I haven’t posted on here in a hot minute but I need some dress advice. I went dress shopping for the 2nd time (1st time was a waste) and I found some real potentials.
I am leaning toward dress #1 for a number of reasons…it’s light weight, easy to move in, Destination Wedding wedding appropriate, and I think it’s sexy as hell! I am just wondering if it looks like a wedding dress. I wouldn’t want people thinking it looked like a nightgown or evening gown! Also, I need to work on my stomach pooch big time. Also this sample is ivory/beige and pretty dirty (sick). I would get it in white white.
Dress #2 is beautiful but is heavier than dress #1 and it covers my chest and back which probably would not be good in the hot Cabo sun. However, I do feel that is is more of a traditional wedding dress. The dress needs a better fit, so don’t worry about that, just look at the style of the dress.
What do you BEES think?

Much prefer the first one! It gives you a beautiful shape, and I agree, the straps would be better for the hot sun.

@Lily_of_the_valley: you should add a poll 🙂

@Lily_of_the_valley: Based on what you are saying, definitely dress one!

Both are beautiful! I think dress one flatters your figure best and would be great for Cabo!

I’m interested to know why the people who chose #2 did so?

@Lily_of_the_valley: I love the first one but I am not a fan of the second at all.

@Lily_of_the_valley: thats ok.. its easy to forget things when we get so excited about our dresses 🙂
I LOVE the 1st dress on you. It shows off your figure so well, elegant and oh so sexy at the same time. The lace appliques with the light beading give it just the right amount of texture and sparkle.
You are going to look amazing kn the big day!
As a side note I personally prefer lace dresses in ivory. The lace applique details will pop that little bit more in person and in photos. Ivory actaully photographs white as long as youre not standing next to someone else in white on the day…. gasp!!!
The sample you tried would have that dirty look just due to so many people handling it, make up smears etc.

@bellasmum: thanks for your input! good point about the ivory. I think this dress comes in cafe/ivory overaly (pictured above), ivory/ivory overlay, and white/white overlay. I’ll need to find samples of the different colors cause the cafe was a little too beige for me but the ivory over ivory might be juuuust right 🙂

Honestly I don’t think that either of them are the most flattering shape on you. I think an a-line or non-poofy natural waist ballgown would look great on your figure. I do like 1 better than 2, but I don’t like how narrow the skirt is around the bottom of your legs it throws off your porportions for me.

1 is gorgeous! I love the straps. I agree that the second is too covered for a Destination Wedding.
