- Wedding: May 2009
@blessings: Thank you. 🙂 I have thought about working in bridal in some manner, since I truly do love it, and I’ve still not found a job in my field in the area to which I relocated after marrying my Darling Husband.
Yes, I do have some additional thoughts to offer. First, rest assured that, from the perspectives of your guests and your wedding pictures, you really cannot go wrong with either of these gowns. You have an amazing figure, and you are going to be a gorgeous bride no matter which of these two dresses you choose. Often, that is not the case when a bride is trying to decide between two dresses, but, in this case, I really think both of these gowns will look fantastic on you.
If I were you, here is how I would make this decision. One of these two dresses is definitely more remarkable than the other and will make a more significant statement than the other. I believe that the dress that is the more remarkable of the two is the Allure, because it has some very specific detailing that is not common to so many other dresses. If you choose the Allure, choose it because YOU are in love with those details — the lace, the texture, the specific lines/cut of the dress, the beautiful floral sash, etc. If you choose this dress, choose it BECAUSE of those details — because YOU love them. Do not choose this dress in SPITE of any of those significant details.
If, on the other hand, you have any significant hesitation about any detail of the Allure, if any particular noteworthy design element BOTHERS you or concerns you in any way, I would hesitiate to choose this dress. It makes a statement, so you need to be sure that it is the statement that YOU WANT to make. Does that make sense?
The Essence Organza is a simply beautiful, cohesive, flowing, very elegant dress. It fits you amazingly well. The lines of this dress fall so wonderfully and effortlessly across your lovely figure. The dress itself is dreamy, light, ethereal, and beautiful. I am not a huge fan of organza as a fabric, but it drapes SO beautifully in the design and the design appears to be very well executed on this gown. Although there is no particular “stand-out” detailing on this dress, there is nothing about this dress that I do not like. It is just … BEAUTIFUL.
You EASILY could choose either one of these gowns, and you will be a stunning bride. However, ONE of these two dresses is going to BE and FEEL MORE like YOU. Whether you know it or not yet, even though you are feeling very torn between these two dresses, if you HAD to say goodbye to one of them, never to see or wear it again, you would begin to feel very sad at the thought of NOT being able to wear one of these dresses. If you imagine yourself as having committed to (i.e. agreed to marry, lol) one of these dresses, and forsaking all others — including the other one of these two — you are going to know which of these two dresses you simply will be crushed if you do NOT have the opportunity to wear it.
I hope this makes sense. 🙂
