Hi fellowbees: I fell in love with 2 dresses and I really cannot decide which one to go with. I went to the bridal store 3 times and still can’t make up my mind. The last time I was at the store, I decided to pay the deposit and got measured. I told the lady I would decide ASAP between the 2 dresses. I desparately need your help!
The first dress is WTOO Cecilia. It is WTOO’s spring 2014 line, it is so new that I cannot find any real bride in this dress. I don’t have the back of the dress, so I will link the dress from its official website. (http://watters.com/Product/WtooBrides/WeddingType:Classic/12011/) It is very classic, simple yet elegant. It is pretty much my everyday style, so it is very me, but I also can’t help thinking my wedding dress should be more special and unique.
The second dress is WTOO Olivia. It is such a popular dress and I can see why. I love the flowers at the back as it will suit my garden wedding very well. The sample I tried is in Oatmeal, but I will mostly likely be ordering ivory because my mom prefers ivory, although I really liked oatmeal. It is unfortunate that they didn’t have ivory sample for me to try on. I will post a link to another ivory Olivia bride (http://blog.birkephoto.com/2013/01/28/andrea-josh-wedding/).
For reference, I am getting married in a garden in the summer. I also have a very yellow undertone in my skin.
Thanks a million for offering your opinions!

I thought I would be biased since I’m an ivory Olivia bride, but I think that the Cecilia fits your body type better. Both are lovely though 🙂

The back of that second one is just stunning. Wow. But I do think the first one is a more flattering shape for you.

the first one fits your body perfect. It makes you have a small waist line. Plus it’s gorgeous

The first one is AMAZING! It looks PERFECT on you and so flowy and romantic! <3

I tried on the Olivia in Ivory because the Oatmeal matched my skin too closely…and I hated it. It didn’t have the same sort of…ethereal quality I loved about the Oatmeal one. It looked cheap. (This may have been because the sample was old, I don’t know.) SO if you go for Olivia, go for Oatmeal!
The first dress is gorgeous, though!!

@peachacid: Thank you so much for the advice on the ivory Olivia. I have always wondered if I would like the ivory as much as the oatmeal.
I agree with you! The sash I tried on came with the dress, but I will definitely keep an eye out for other sash options if I go for the Cecilia.

Thanks for all the nice words and I am really happy you liked the first dress.
Thank you for your honest opinion! I love your red shoes, I was thinking about wearing red shoes for my wedding? Where did you get yours?

@jillavery: Without a doubt hands down the Cecilia. That dress was made for you, girl! In my mind it is not even a close call. Less is more…simple and elegant is the way to go. My dress is a simple, elegant Jim Hjelm and I think those types of dresses stand the test of time better.
You look gorgeous in the Cecilia and just….ok in the other.

The first one for sure! It is absolutely gorgeous! And you said it yourself… It’s you… If you pick something that you don’t feel like it is completelly you, you will guaranteed end up with major dress regret…
I really hate the second one!
