I’m new to posting but have the found the boards to be full of useful & helpful info!
I really need some opinions. When I tried on ‘the dress’, the Jasmine #F460, I completely felt like it was the one. I had been looking for an elegant dress in simple fabric, with an awesome back. I had looked a tons of dresses & just couldn’t find one like this. Prior, the dress I was considering was the Enzoani Dakota. I know it’s breathtaking beautiful (seen a lot of ladies pick this one as their dress on here) but I think the other is sooo unique.
My couple worries with the Jasmine are…
That it’s a little shiny, though I know the point-n-shoot camera flash is awful. And in person the sheen is really pretty, the fabric light weight & pretty. It’s a taffeta- doesn’t specify which one but doesn’t feel cheap.
Another worry is that the front is too plain. But it has this really cool diagonal design that ends in pleats at the bottom…so maybe I’ve just been staring at lace too long…lol
Finally the back is absolutely amazing to me with the ruffles & roses (at top)…I’m just worried about how it’ll iron/steam out, if it’ll look really nice & what will happen when I sit on it over a longer period of time. The sample didn’t look too bad (it was stored for a while, store acquired it for me to try as they didn’t carry it) so I’m assuming if pressed & polished it will look even better =)
Okay ladies, pleaaaaseee help. I’m supposed to look at the Jasmine loaner today again as it has to go back to the designer after this week. Hopefully I’ll still feel wonderful in it when I try it on the second time!
Thank you bees soooo much!

They are both so pretty on you…I can see why you’d be having a hard time deciding! I do like the first one, but I have to admit…my jaw dropped when I scrolled down and saw you in the lace dress! Wow!!! It is amazing on you! It accentuates your hourglass figure so well! I’d say go with the lace!!

I prefer the first one, the back is interested and unexpected, its more unique than the lace dress

I am in love with the back of the jasmine but not in love with the front. The dakota is very pretty.

Both look really great on you. I see what you mean, the back of “the dress” is so unique! The second dress did look really stunning on you. But in the end go with what you feel, what your gut says. If you think the second dress looks good but your heart is with the first then go with the first! Whatever you decide just go with your heart. Best of luck, I’m sure you’ll look beautiful on your wedding day!

The Jasmine is so Unique! I adore it! I do not think the front is too plain at all with the bling and the interesting construction.
They are both lovely but the Jasmine gets my vote!

The first one is beautiful. But I vote for the second! It is breathtaking!!!

you look much more elegant in the second dress. the first dress looked a bit big on you, which may be the reason you look so great in the second one…
what is your wedding venue?

I’m convinced that Dakota is gorgeous on tons of brides, yourself included, but I just love how happy you are in the Jasmine. It’s understated, yet just stunning on you. I’m feeling you with #1!

I think #1 does more for you. Plain isn’t always plain, plain is also simple and elegant and that is what I think about the first dress. It just says more to me.

The back of the Jasmine is amazing. I think that when you get your dress and it fits correctly, it will be stunning.

I honestly love the second one the most – it looks amazing on you!
