I really, really need your help! Here’s the deal……Six months ago I purchased the Watters Austin gown. I loved it. It was everything I ever wanted in a wedding dress. I couldn’t imagine another gown I would want to get married in…….then I saw the Watters Torreon. This dress haunted me! I’m serious! I couldn’t stop thinking about it. I HAD to try it on. I couldn’t sleep until I did. Everyone advised me against this. I knew it was a bad idea but deep inside I thought “I can try the Torreon. It won’t matter. I won’t love it as much as the Austin. It’ll just put my mind at ease, right?…RIGHT???…….ummmmmm NO! As it turns out, I think I’m in love. So this is where you come in. I’ve attached photos of me in both the Austin and the Torreon and I need your opinions. If I go with the Torreon I would have to sell the Austin. I should mention that I am wearing a Monique Lhuillier crystal sash that I purchased when I bough the Austin. I would keep that either way because I think it looks great with both dresses. Anyway, sorry for the long post but PLEASE HELP!

I think that both dresses are beautiful but I favor the first one more. I think it looks beautiful on you and you have already bought it so I would stick with Austin.

First off, they are both STUNNING dresses on you…so no matter which you choose, you will look amazing…I like the clean lines of the Torreon…the Austin (to me) isn’t as symmetrical?…for lack of a better word 🙂 Im not sure if its the unevenness of the (flowers/lace?) on the entire dress…but Well, I voted for the torreon. 🙂 best of luck!

Thanks for your advice so far Bees! Just to clarify, the Torreon is the first dress pictured (with the lace/flowers) and the Austin is the second (more simple, ball-gown style). Keep the comments coming! xx

i voted for the Austin. I like it waaaaaaaay better than Torrean, especially on you! Torrean just looks too “cluttered” for me, but you look so beautiful and graceful wearing the Austin!

As much as I love lace, and I really am it’s biggest fan.. I LOVEE the second dress on you. It just draws all attention to you and looks like it was made, just for you!
Dress #2 all the way. Wow.. you look stunning.
Oh, and I just realised now that the second dress is the original, I thought the first one(lace one) was the one you had. I was not liking be the one that says sell yours and buy another.. but.. I am so happy now– KEEP the one you have!!!! It is just perfect for you!

I looked at your photos not knowing which was which… Dress number 2 won, because it’s so elegant, and also because you look really lovely in it. I love the way the sheer skirt drapes and folds… and I imagine floats as well!
My experience was a bit Old Spice- I looked at the dress, then back at you, then back at the dress, etc… 🙂
With dress 1 I stay looking at the dress because I’m busy working out what’s going on with the flowers and lace.
But that’s just me, and in the end, go with the dress you love! (ie what does your gut say?)

They are both lovely, but the first one is just gorgeous and looks stunning on you. What a beautiful dress.

Oh geez, I went thru a lot of dress indecision too! I like them both on you. I think you look great in both. I actually like the Torrean because I love the appliques but at the same time, it is a little cluttered looking as someone else said.
I like the clean lines and sheerness of the Austin too. So it made me think of another Watters dress that I really loved and almost bought…
The Watters Florence – sheer silk organza layer with some flower appliques but much lighter than the Torrean so it’s like a cross between the Torrean and Austin. 😛
Okay, sorry I didn’t help but I just wanted to share it with you. You look beautiful in both!

You are having a simple vs. full-on bridal conundrum. Been there. I love both dresses but if you love the sash, stick with the Austin. It really clutters up the Torreon. If you still want something more elaborate, perhaps a veil with lace or heavily beaded trim?
PS – I do love both dresses!

I thought the second dress shown was the new dress, and I thought, oh, she should sell the first one for the second one. Then I read that the first pic shown was the new dress, so I say stick with your original dress! They both look great on you, but I love the original much more!
