    I think the Pergola looks amazing on you!  And the lace looks more delicate to me than the Blakesley.  But both look gorgeous on you so I don’t think you’d go wrong with either!

    meg.colleen: I would love to see it steamed when you go back! And I also liked david tutera vera, david tutera suri, Maggie Sottero amelia, and allure 2701! Bu tI haven’t tried on any of those yet because I have only been to Alfred Angelo and Davids Bridal lol. Goodluck with your search!

    meg.colleen:  Oh my….the steaming sold it for me! I wasn’t sure how much of a difference it would make so I went back and examined the initial pictures closely. The steaming gave the tulle a much softer, ethereal, romantic look! And I know you are going for ivory but let me just say the blush looks really good with your skin tone–either color choice works. I love the floral belt detail, too! To me, this dress really flows and my eye follows it from top to scalloped lace bottom. And the top fits you perfectly. It seems like this is the one to beat!

    meg.colleen:  yeah…just went back and looked AGAIN at the Pronovias. It’s a definite no for me. I’m a bit of a perfectionist and my eye gets drawn to certain irregularities. Remember the poof factor I mentioned where the top wrapping stopped and your hips/lower abdomen begins? I checked out the close up of the top wrapping once more. In addition to that angular poof that starts at the hips ever so slightly I can see the wrapping is “off center.” The fabric swath starting from left to right as you face the dress is a longer piece and makes that whole portion seem slightly off center. Some of that could be due to the size and lack of tailoring. I then looked at the back of the Pronovias and the dress seems to overshadow you or wear you instead of the other way around. There. I’ll shut up now. That’s my critical two cents! Lol
