    I like both dresses, but I voted for the sheath dress because it might help you look more mature.

    I vote for dress one, as I think it will give you more of a figure. I’m sure you will look beautiful! Maybe focus on creating a nice updo (I like the model’s in picture 1) and add in some classic jewelry if you are concerned about looking young.

    The A line is more cute, the sheath is a little more mature. You didn’t say if you enjoyed looking like a 16 year old or not, so I would just say choose the A-line for a more youthful look and the sheath for a more mature one.

    I say option B. It’s more ‘fancy’ and you will stand out more in it IMO and you should stand out on your wedding day.

    It’s hard to say which without seeing them on you – but I would say the a line is probably less like a dress you would normally wear to dinner etc. so I voted B.

    I love option B. I love the line of it, and if you are an hourglass shape than this will accent all the right spots so to speak.

    I would choose the sheath dress if it had some sort of sleeves or straps. I think the style is more flattering and sophisticated than the A-line; however, I personally think that strapless dresses are best when they have longer (i.e. not above the knee) hemlines. Otherwise, they can tend to look as if the person wearing them is wrapped in a towel (a very elegant and lovely towel in this case, but that is nonetheless how they appear to me.) If you definitely want a short, strapless dress, I would choose the A-line silhouette, because, to me, it offers more visual interest and substance for the same number of vertical inches of fabric.

    I like dress #1, but mainly if you want to look more sophisticated.

    I am wearing a retro-style dress with a skirt similar to #2, and one problem I do have with it is that it makes me feel a little childish before I put on my accessories. It’s just very circle-y.

    @mepayne:  i voted for A since it’s more mature considering that you could pass for a 16 yr old.

    @mepayne:  sounds like you described me in your post I’m 4’11 with huge hips and butt and uses to work in schools a lot and would sometimes get mistaken for a middle schooler lol no joke 🙂 but I like the second one with your body type it’s very flattering just make sure if you get a short dress you alter the hem where it hits you at the knee or you will wind up looking even shorter

    I could go either way! For me personally, it’d be the sheath dress. So I voted for that. But both are beautiful!

    @mepayne:  The fact you mentioned you look young make me want to completely eliminate Dress 2, because you’ll probably look girly wearing it. Dress 1 is elegant and feminine, with the right accessories, it will look stunning.
