I like the back on Reagan more!!
I like the back on Reagan more!!
After seeing the new pics, I have to say that there’s no need to feel self-conscious in the Reagan dress whatsoever! It’s VERY slimming and more flattering than the Ariane. I preferred the front look of the Reagan originally, but now I also love the Reagan’s back so much more, too. (I originally liked the back of the other dress better, but it doesn’t look nearly as good in person as it did in the stock photo.) The Reagan is absolutely perfect on you and looks even more elegant in these photos than the original post. Definitely go with it! Seriously, you look f*ing amazing and I’m totally in love with the look. 😍
ETA: If this helps, I asked my family for their input as well.
Here’s my 11-year old daughter’s opinion: I like that one (Reagan) best. It looks nice and light, and the back is pretty. The other one has too much going on, too many embellishments, and the front doesn’t look as good.
And my FI’s take (typical male opinion) at a separate time: I like (the Reagan). It looks more elegant and I like the cape there. (😂😂) The other one is too poufy and goes straight down. It just looks like a dress. I don’t know, I like the shape and flow of the other one (Reagan) better.
You look better in Ariane front and Reagan back. I would find out how much alterations to create a train on Ariane would be. You will love dramatic flowing back photos bit Most of your photos will be front facing.
There were some dresses I wanted so badly based on the back view but that were a bit off in proportions from directly head on making my torso look too long. I think that’s what’s going on with Reagan and you just can’t get a dress that is not Perfect and that you don’t love Primarily f the Front?! Can you?
Example of feeling Wow:
Except…ooops, who invited stumpy:
Unflattering front non-acceptable!
Ariane all the way!
Oh my goodness! Hands down the Reagan, it is to die for on your body shape! The other dress is way too busy up top…in my opinion 😉
Reagan for sure.
Reagan! all the way!
Reagan gets my vote
Ariane gown is by far my favorite. If you cut the sheer lining in the front, it would add a more dramatic V in the front. It looks stunning on you!! It’s a little “fuller” which help creates that “bride” look! Can’t go wrong with either dress though. Go with your heart and how you invision yourself on your wedding day!! Good luck 🙂
The reagan is perfect in every way! You could always put somethingg underneath for more volume if that’s what you want but I feel like the other dress looks cheap, stiff and not as flattering.
Reagan looks much better on you. The Ariane makes you look flat chested.
Thank you all for your input. I will take every one of your opinions and advises when making my decision. So far I am still a little undecided about which to pick. I like both dresses the same for different reasons. The reason why I like the ariane is because: it looks more formal, i love the 3D flower appliqué I feel not many dresses has that and it reminds me of other dresses that I liked but were out of my budget such as hailey paige, Ellie Saab’s. At the same time, with all the appliqué and details plus the tank top style back with very visible white zipper makes me feel like it’s a little too busy, plus that style in the back kind of reminds me of a child’s dress (I already look very young for my age, lets just say most ppl think I’m 18 when I’m actually in my late 20s). Love the neckline though. I like the volume it gives me at the hips, however because of my very petite body (I’m 5’0″ and weight 95lbs) it sometimes overwhelms me, I’m afraid it will make me look even shorter in pictures.
on the other hand, I like the Reagan Because: the soft tulle and illusion neckline/back makes it look very elegant/feminine and delicate. I love the flow of the train. It fits the airy style I was originally going for (my wedding has a little bit of a bohemian/rustic theme). However, I feel like it lacks a little bit of volume and support.
its a love/hate relationship here, one day I wake up 100% certain I want the Ariane dress and then the next day I wake up thinking I’m certain I’ll go for the Reagan
Which one did you end up picking? I was also between the 2 yesterday and picked the Ariane with the intention if taking out all the layers under the beige layer to make it less poofy (I’m 5’1″). But I also keep going back to how flattering the Reagan looked on me and already feel torn 😓
