    I know what you mean about “stalking” the Sophia Tolli–it’s one of my all-time favorite dresses. That being said, I think the Eden is BEAUTIFUL and perfect for a backyard wedding. Plus it sounds like it looks amazing on you! I would go with that one.

    I voted to keep looking (but return to Eden) since you have the time. Based on your descriptions, I think you like dress #1 better. Trying on additional dresses you will either find a dress that is a 10 or you will realize how much you really do love one of the 2 dresses above.

    The top of the first dress is not all that flattering on the model.  That is really distracting me.  

    The second doesn’t really strike me as a backyard wedding dress (unless you’re doing the whole draped tent thing)?  I think I’d keep looking.

    they are both very different.  for a backyard wedding, i think the first one would be perfect.  it’s very feminine.  the 2nd one is nice too but a bit too glamorous for the backyard.

    i think you should try on some more dresses.  you don’t want to feel doubtful.

    I chose keep looking but return to Eden.

    You have a gorgeous body shape and I felt Eden dress will compliment your hourglass figure to the max without looking over done. And since it’s a backyard wedding, you may prefer to be able to move around more comfortably.

    sophia’s lovely too πŸ™‚

    My personal opinion is that when you buy your dress, you should think “IT’S A 10!” All around, and not want to change anything about it.

    But if you don’t find anything else, you seem happier overall with the Eden

    As you know, the Sophia potentially (ok, let’s face it.. It IS!) my gown.. So you know how much I love it.. But I do agree that the Eden would be way more suiting for a backyard wedding (and it’s gorgeous). I’m sad you couldn’t take pictures, but sometimes we have to take reality into consideration.. You want to be comfortable! If you are not comfortable in the Sophia then maybe that’s not the right choice for you.. But for what it’sworth, it made me pretty self conscious at first too.. But it was a matter of listening to all the awesome opinions I got and reassuring that made me love this dress all over again. Try it on a second time if you are really sold on it.. It might settle your worries! I know it did for me! Good luck!!

    Wait until you find a 10. You have over a year until your wedding, so easily 4 more months to look without a single concern about timing.

    Keep looking but maybe after a few other dresses, go back and try on both other gowns again.  I tried on a couple of dresses a second time, and I was blown away by how much my opinion changed from the first time I had it on to the second.  You might find that they’re not as amazing as you remembered. OR, you might find that you didn’t realize quite how much you loved one of these two dresses until you put on a few others.

    I think Sophia is too formal for a backyard wedding. It is honestly tough to pick without seeing them on you. :/ But you have some hips, like me…going off that I’d say Eden. But like others said, don’t rush the decision. You don’t want dress regret. I know I don’t.

    @aggie2010:  You’re probably being too hard on yourself! You have an awesome shape but I think the defining feature is that you actually have hips and I don’t. πŸ˜› (That’s not a bad thing! I’d kill for that shape! lol)

    When I started dress shopping, I didn’t look up any online and I’m really glad that I didn’t.. I can only imagine how sad it would be to have a dream dress and then find that it’s not perfect for me.. but regardless, you will find a dress that you love and that makes you feel beautiful! If you don’t find anything else, go back and try them both on again.. you may find that the second time around the sophia surprises you πŸ™‚
