I bought an expensive one and fell in love with one half as much as the first lol. The first is fun and flirty the second is 50’s classic looking so it depends on what you are going for. Both are beautiful!

I say go with the fancier one – modcloth dresses tend to be short and that one looks like it has a high hemline in the front.

Also, becasue the fancy one is GORGEOUS!!!

The ModCloth one is very pretty — very Marilyn Monroe like!

However, I do like the second one better. I might be biased though as I picked a tea-length dress for myself. ๐Ÿ˜‰

I think it depends on your body shape. 

The 2nd dress looks like it would be better on someone with no boobs, whereas the first would be flattering on a lady with larger breasts.

They are both very pretty.

Compared to brides who spend thousands of dollars on a dress, there isn’t that much price difference between the two.   I know that when you are on a budget, 100 dollars really does make a difference though.   Keep in mind that the second one will probably end up being even more expensive, since it looks like it is made in China.  You’ll most likely end up paying more for shipping and get hit with customs/import/duty fees when it arrives.  

However, saying that I think that the second one is a bit more bridal and wedding-ish.   But, if you are really really trying to pinch pennies and wear a dress that you can re-wear, the modcloth is the choice.  From the reviews it seems like there are some women who did wear it for informal weddings.

I think the second one is much nicer, and it might be better to splurge on such a big thing. ๐Ÿ™‚

I like the second one better, but why not order the modcloth one to see how you like it? You can always return it if you decide you’d prefer the other dress.

@MariahLynn:  What kind of wedding are you having? The first one would go with a courthouse wedding or a backyard wedding, but I think it would look really out of place outside of that. If thats what kind of wedding you’re having or you dont care about that though, go ahead and order it. I heard ModCloth has a really good return policy, so if you dont like it you can just send it back.

I like the #2 but whatever makes you feel perfect in is the one you should get.

I like number 2 except the rose in the front. So I pick number 1! I like the high low hem.

@MariahLynn:  

Neat, you actually found a halter-top tea/ankle-length?

Ooh, a beach wedding! I looked again on the website to see the cotton swing halter dress. (Go to the Reviews tab) One reviewer wrote:

“I had contracted someone on Etsy to make a wedding dress for me. I had seen this one and I figured I wouldn’t want cotton for my wedding dress. Well, after much frustration and the dressmaker not getting back to me I drove to LA with one of my bridesmaids and luckily they had one in stock in my size. I cannot tell you how awesome the dress is. Everyone at the wedding made such great comments on it…” – Barbara Weckstrom

I wouldn’t think this halter swing dress is casual at all; it’s fun and comfortable, but you will definitely need a good slip or petticoat. (Check out David’s Bridal for one; I remember spending around $50 or $60 to go with my DB tea-length dress)

You could always add a bridal sash! ๐Ÿ™‚
