#1…have you tried these dresses on?

how would you make #1 strapless?! I really love number one, but with how low the backing goes…I just don’t see how you’d make it strapless.

 Let us know what you decide!

I think #1 is classy with a modern twist to it…but which one do you feel better in? It may end up boiling down to what is more comfortable. What does your mom say? When I’m torn I always talk about it with my mom 🙂

I agree with Angie, go get some Momma advice!

wow I love them both, (although I would leave #1 just the way it is).  I know that’s not much advice.  My only comment is that the lace in #1 looks softer and thus higher quality, (but that might simply be the way it translates in the picture).

I am a fan of #2. I think it would be very elegant for the catholic wedding that you are going for. #1 is nice also but I think that with all the extra work you have to do to it may not be worth it since you can get #2 without any extra alterations.

 Either way they are both gorgeous! Good luck!

How are either of those ok for a Catholic ceremony? I was under the impression that you had to be a little move covered up?  #1 is a bit bare for my taste, so I think I’d go with #2. I would ask to see pictures of the alterations they did to #1 before you order it if that’s what you choose, because it doesn’t sound like something you could do without major work and I think you would be able to tell. Isn’t there another dress you like that looks like that and is strapless…

I voted for dress #2 the last two rounds but I really like dress #1!  The lace is so pretty and delicate.  With the added fabric in the bust area I wouldn’t worry about it being to showy for a Catholic wedding.  Good luck!

I like #1 better, but I usually am drawn toward sashes at the empire level rather than at the natural waist (it looks better on me). Do you like them both equally on your body?

Have you checked dress code with your church? In some instances they won’t let you wear strapless unless you cover up…a shall or bolero.

I love #1 but I don’t think I would like it nearly as much if it was strapless.
