I am usually a ball gown girl, but that second dress looks like it was made for you!
What about a ceremony and a reception dress? I don’t know of thats in your budget, but you already purchased the vera wang

Holy wow you are beautiful. The Allure is DRAW DROPPINGLY GORGEOUS on you. If it isn’t a huge problem financially, I would go with the new dress!

raineychico : 10000% the allure. The allure is modern and sexy; the Vera Wang looks like a dated princess (basque waist and way too busy looks a little 80s)

They are so different. If it helps you decide try to envision the one your fiancé would like more.

I’m sorry, but Bee there isn’t really a comparison. While the Vera Wang is nice, the Allure is jaw-droppingly A-MA-ZING. Emphasis on the ZING (girl never would have know you had that killer figure under that big ball gown).
If it’s not too late, switch for sure!

raineychico : Ohhh, I’m very familiar with the Broadmoor!!! Your wedding will be gorgeous! I’d vote #2!

raineychico : Definitely the allure mermaid/trumpet. Your body looks so good in it. NO COMPARISON WHATSOEVER with the ballroom gown.

You have to switch to the allure… Sorry about the expense!

Definitely the Allure – your body looks amazing in it. I think you could pull of a ballgown as well, but not that one – it swallows up your fab figure and somehow makes you look larger.
One thing I would say, if you’re going for more of a timeless and elegant look, I think you should line the sheer bits of the mermaid the same colour as the rest of the lining. The sheer bits are very ‘now’ and not so much of a classic look – not that I have anything about showing some skin, but I’m not sure if sexy is really the look you’re going for.

The allure, absolutely no question. You look great in the ball gown but the allure is jaw dropping on you. Stunning.

The allure screams at me while the ballgown looks amazing, it comes across as kind of cheap looking.
But that allure on you! omg! wow!

raineychico : They’re both beautiful and both drastically different. I would think about waht you’ve envisioned yourself in and what kind of venue you have 🙂

I would go with Allure since you clearly have the figure to pull it off!! It looks amazing on you. I flip flopped between a ballgown and a slimmer dress like yours and ultimately chose the figure hugging one! They are both pretty dresses but I personally like allure better on you!

des- : Thank you! 🙂 Honestly the more I look at the ballgown, the less flattering I think it is on me.

isadelc507 : Thanks! I think it would be in budget to have both, but I’m not so sure my fiancé would be super thrilled lol
