I am the most indecisive bride ever and I can’t decide on which wedding dress to wear for my ceremony (planning on changing into a simpler dress for my reception so I can dance the night away). Both are around the same price but two totally different styles. Please comment and help me choose!
Thank you all in advance my busy wedding bees!
Dress 1: Deep V-Neck, Lace & Sequin Top, Long Chiffon Train
I was thinking about selling this one actually but now I’m questioning if it’s actually the better choice! Help!
Dress 2: Strapless with a deep v-neck, Ballgown, Shorter Train, Will wear a solitaire necklace with this dress (to fill in the ‘gap’ as it’s a strapless)

I’m not overly crazy about either option; I think you could find something that is more figure flattering (and my god, you have a great figure!). Between the 2, if I had to pick, it would be dress #2.
I’m trying to figure out what seems “off” to me, but I feel like neither dress is doing your figure a favor.

l regret l have to agree with pp above. You have such a graceful slender figur, but both these dresses don’t really do it justice. I think it is the elongated, somewhat flattened look the bodices have, especially the second . Of the two, l prefer the first . That might be because the second is sitting much too low though.
l don’t see why either would impair dancing , or need to be changed out of , so that’s a plus to my mind.

I like the second dress more but it needs some pizazz.

I voted for the second but I think you need a necklace with it tbh, it does sit quite low on your torso

Good point! I forgot to mention that I will be wearing a solitaire necklace with this dress to fill the in gap!

Thanks for your comment! They both have trains and the second ballgown has quite a bit of fabric! Knowing what a clutz I am, I know I’m going to need a smaller dress for the reception so I can dance freely and not fall flat on my face!

I prefer the second dress, but it feels like there is something missing…. I know you said you plan to wear a necklace, but I am wondering if a thin belt would bring more to the table?

am a fan of plain, unadorned dresses, so I voted for the second. The starkness is what makes it so elegant.
They are both beautiful dresses but to me the second is more timeless.

I don’t think either one is the best choice for you. You have a great figure, but I think another dress would highlight your shape better. I don’t think that the plunging neckline is the right way to go. If I had to pick one, I’d pick the 2nd one.

I LOVE the first dress on you! Hands down, I think that one is the winner!

I’m a huge fan of long trains, but that second dress just flatters your figure way more to me. I prefer the fuller skirt of the second dress over the plain maxi style skirt of the first dress. And honestly, while they’re both pretty, that first dress seems like it swallows you up a bit. The bodice on the second dress looks perfectly fitted and really complements your petite figure! I vote dress #2!!

I dont like where the 2nd one sits, but i really think the first one is lovely!

And I don’t often completely disagree with other Bees, but I have to disagree with most of the other PP’s here. I absolutely love the plunge neckline on you with the right fit (I think you have the perfect body for it) and seriously, that second dress looks like it was made for you. The way it fits on you is absolutely perfect in my opinion!

I think both dresses are beautiful on you. Something about them (and your body type) also makes me think of ballerinas and Swan Lake (I mean that as a compliment as a former dancer, myself). I prefer the second dress because I love strapless looks, but I have to say, as another member of the IBTCs community, are you planning to dance or move at your wedding? I wore a strapless gown to an event and was certain I’d properly prepared myself with undergarments, but when I raised my hands while dancing, my nipple came out to join the party, so I’d say to be extra conscientious of that.
