Hello! I had a pretty intense week of dress shopping and now I’ve narrowed my decision down to 2 dress options. My sister in law came along and took pictures, so I wanted to share the pictures of my favorite dresses!
My wedding will be in May 2013. It is being planned as a country NC wedding to be held with close family and friends in my Mom’s backyard. I want my dress to be lightweight, flowy, and I love fabrics like lace and organza, but somehow I have found myself with a lace dress and a chiffon dress that I adore. I thought I wanted a mermaid or fit and flare shape, but neither of my favorites are in that shape.
This is the first dress that I fell in love with…a nice lightweight lace ballgown type dress:
The other dress I love is a chiffon a-line dress that I tried on despite having a dressing room full of lace and organza dresses because it caught my eye when I was walking around the store. I love this dress, too!
I really want both, but I know I need to make a choice. Please vote and leave comments with your thoughts!

I love the lace: it’s so delicate & romantic! You could also add a belt if you decide you like the flower embelishment from the 2nd one.

I love the chiffon dress on you! It’s so flowy and lovely and fits you very well. That said, the other one is lovely too. 🙂

I love both of those dresses!! I think the lace dress could use a sash or something around the waist. I voted for the chiffon dress-its beautiful and flowy on you. Perfect for a backyard wedding. 🙂

I thought I would vote for the first one because it looked so perfect, but then I scrolled down and saw the second one and it’s amazing on you! I say go for number 2!

This was a tough call, because they are both beautiful and look great on you! But I think the chiffon dress has more interesting details.

I think the proportions of the 1st one are better.
I adore chiffon, but I just like the way the 1st one falls on you.

You look wonderful in both of them but I agree with the other PPs. The lace one is a little too formal and I think that the chiffon one is the perfect combo for elegant and flowy.

Thanks for all your comments and votes! I was really thrown for a loop when I tried on the chiffon dress. My mom reminded me just now that it was the only one when I actually immediate said, “I LOVE this dress!” as soon as I stepped out of the dressing room. I love the lace one, too, but I think that maybe I feel like I’m supposed to want it since it is the closest to what I was searching for when I started dress shopping except for the shape (I originally wanted a lace mermaid style dress).
I was thinking about adding a flower sash to the lace dress since I do really like that detail on the chiffon…but when I look at the chiffon dress, I pretty much love it just the way it is. I’m still a little on the fence, but it looks like my votes are coming in overwhelmingly for the chiffon 🙂 I’m trying to make a decision soon since I don’t want to miss out on having one of these dresses for my wedding next year.
