    In #2 I think that the line where the flare starts is too low on your body.

     

    I prefer #1 over #2 because the way it cuts your body is more proportional and complimentary.

    @chateau2013:  I like the new one the best out of all the ones you have chosen. I’m not sure if I can explain why, but I think it’s because if flares out more gently than the others, which are more like trumpet/mermaid style. I’m thinking maybe you’re not quite curvy enough for the other styles, and you need more something in a straight line silhouette, like this one has. It  also helps that it appears to fit you a lot better than the others did.

    I love ths softness and the details on this one too. Who is the designer?

    Were there others you tried on that you liked as much?

    @chateau2013:  For what it’s worth, I like the new dress more than your original one.

    But so much that it’s worth selling the original for? Not so sure.

    @chateau2013:  You’re as hopeless as I am…I finally bit the bullet on the Georgina but haven’t been able to stop looking at other dresses along the way. 

    I too prefer the latest dress (which is the same as #2 on the first page, but with a sweetheart lace neckline, right?) on you. I think @clairebbbear: is right in that it gives you more of a dramatic silhouette than the ML. The ML makes you look very slim, and the lace doesn’t have much volume to it. This, with the asymmetrical organza layers, is more dramatic. I think I recall you saying you’re getting married at a chateau…a dress with more drama in the silhouette would be so beautiful against such a romantic backdrop.

    I still think both are beautiful, but I don’t know whether you love this new dress enough to switch. I feel like to make the switch, you gotta adore the new dress. Then I’d be all for it!

    Your wedding is in July? Is there enough time to get a new dress?

    @chateau2013:  Now I read your wedding is in a chateau, I totally say pick the new one. The first one looks more of a rustic style to me, more suited to a smaller venue, like a room of a stately home or something.

    (So says the person who is so indecisive she is getting two dresses, and keeps wondering why her wedding budget is blowing out.)

    Edit: Just saw your most recent update. I’m so happy you bought dress #1! I still prefer the one you bought over the most recent dress! The shape is much more flattering on you. Stop shopping girl!! I loooove the very first dress!

    @chateau2013:  I couldn’t decide between two different colours (neither of my dresses are white/ivory) or between two completely different styles (long a-line or tea-length). Not like you with a range of fairly similar dresses but just can’t pick the right one!

    I probably would have been able to pick one eventually, but I decided to have two once I realised I wanted a long dress for photos, but that I would probably trip over and injure myself attempting to dance in a long dress (my proposal story featured me tripping over and injuring myself – I am notoriously uncoordinated). 

    For me, it was easier to accept having two since there is a reason for having each style of dress and it wasn’t just about being indecisive. I can never quite understand it when brides have two dresses but they’re two similar ones.
