    Keep 2nd dress with pick ups

    Keep 2nd dress, remove pick ups

    Ooh I’m sorry but I actually love both of those dresses but they are two totally different looks….

    I voted to wait for the 1st dress and if that one is okay to return the 2nd dress. It’s easier to return the 2nd dress bc it’s from Neiman. I dont think the 2nd dress looks dated even with the pick-ups and I normally DESPISE pick-ups.

    I think the second dress is gorgeous, but I’m with you on the pick-ups. Maybe consult with a seamstress and see if it can be softened a bit?

    I usually hate pickups because they look (literally) tacked on, but whoever designed that dress knew exactly what they were doing and what pickups SHOULD look like! It looks fab IMO. I like both dresses and I don’t think either is a wrong decision. I’d wait until dress 1 is finished to make a final decision tho.

    @eosin:  Personally I do not like your first dress at all. I think it’s hard to have a red wedding dress in the first place, but as long as it’s bridal it’ll be fine. But it doesn’t look bridal, it looks like a weird prom dress. However I LOVE your second dress! I think it’s beautiful and fits you perfectly. Can you imagein yourself with your hair done and holding a boquet, does it make you like the dress better?

    I absolutely adore your second dress. The color is wonderful. And I don’t think of those as traditionanl pickups, those are more like very gently tucked folds.

    I think both are beautiful, but I really do love the second one.  I also do not normally like pick ups, but I LOVE that!  You look gorgeous and that shade of red is stunning on you!

    I think the first dress is gorgeous!  I like the one shoulder.

    I do like the top 2/3 of the 2nd dress; it looks great on you, but agree that the pick ups should be removed.  Just make it like a normal mermaid bottom.

    Please please pick the 2nd dress. I hate pickups, but they are gorgeous on this dress!! You gotta ask yourself, would u love the first dress if u didn’t custom make it and it was hanging on a rack at the store???

    I’m not usually a fan of one-shoulder dresses but good golly that first dress is so gorgeous, especially from the back!!! I like the second one too and while I don’t hate the pickups, I don’t really love them either.

    @eosin:  I voted for the second dress first because of your body language in the dress you look much more confident second I like the deeper red with your skin tone much better. I dont hate the pickups on the dress at all but if you could change them the dress would still look great. So second dress all the way for me!

    Both of those dresses are amazing!  I don’t find pick ups to be dated…I actually like them a lot.  The first dress is lovely too.  I’d keep BOTH until you see the final results of the first, then make a decision.
