    Personally, I dont care for fitted dresses that flare that high up. I like mermaids over trumpets I guess. Nor do I care cor keyhole backs So, between these two, I prefer the full skirt.

    @shaina0707:  I guess I’m against most here. I like the first dress by Casablanca ALOT better than the Allure dress. I like how it shows your figure better.

    Personal opinion on the 2nd dress: I hate the V neck and straps and just reminds me of something old. Don’t get me wrong the 2nd one is pretty and if that is your dress you do look great in it, I just prefer the other one better. Good Luck with your decision

    @shaina0707:  I like the front of the first, but I don’t like the back. The keyhole seems kind of off to me. The second is pretty

    @shaina0707:  Personally I prefer the first one, but that’s more to do with my own style than anything else. You described the second one as ‘soft and romantic’ and the first one as ‘lacey fitted keyhole’ which makes me think you prefer the second one. Dress no 2 is beautiful, it looks great on you, and I can imagine it at the reception you described more than dress no 1. 

    ETA: I agree with bees about dress no 1 being a very common style. I think it is a beautful dress, but over the past 3 or 4 years I have seen so many brides on the bee and IRL wear something similar or even identical. Fitted lace dresses with sparkly sashes and long trains are the staple dress of the early 2010s and if you want to stand out then this isn’t the dress for you. 

    However, this is a trend that will pass, and if you love your dress then you will probably still love it 10 or 15 years later when people barely remember that lacey dresses were a thing. If you love dress no 1 and think it’s the dress for you then don’t let its popularity stop you.

    You look great in both, but the Allure really has more of a wow factor.

    I love the second one, partly because it’s not the same exact dress that half of all brides are wearing this year.

    I think the first dress is more flattering, but the second one is OH SO PRETTY!  Close your eyes, picture yourself walking down the aisle towards your intended.  What are you wearing?

    Both dresses are absolutely stunning on you- you have a great back for the keyhole dress!  I love that second dress though….it just looks so ethereal!  That lace back is so pretty too….something really unique!
