    I prefer dress B. I don’t like the front of dress A. I love the simplicity of the second one plus what can be done to the back.

    nessa.ana:  b is absolutely stunning and is so sophisticated. No contest.

    B.  But it is your wedding, so you should choose which one makes you feel like a bride.

    Have you actually tried on anything similar to either?

    I really like A, I’m a sucker for a little bit of lace! But you should try them on (or at least something similar) and see how you feel 🙂

    First of all, I LOVE that you’re going the vintage route. I just bought a vintage dress but I’m afraid it is going to be a “project” dress for quite some time. I agree with many of the other Bees, dress B is gorgeous and reflective of the period while maintaining a timeless elegance. How were you thinking of “dressing it up?” By the way, you should check out your era in this awesome book. It covers key bridal looks, vintage inspiration, fashion, beauty, decor and details, and real brides. I checked a copy out from the library and it was really helpful for me as a vintage bride!

    I like A! I like the front better than B, and you have many more possibilities with alterations. 

    I personally don’t believe in buying a wedding dress JUST because of the back – if you don’t like the front. The majority of the time (and in most of the pics), the back won’t show.

    I voted for B.  I think the back represents the theme better.  Also, I really don’t like the book section of the first dress.  Likes like there are bubbles attached underneath.

    Have you tried this style on?

    I tried on lots of these kind of dresses (love them!) and it was often difficult to tell if they would work or not until you had them on.  

    that said I love Dress b and it would be quite similar to what I eventually went for.  (I loved a simple dress, you can accessorize to your hearts content then)

    I’d also pick the second.  The bias cut fabric is very 30s, and I actually love the simplicity of the front. Have you tried them on yet?
