    I haven’t voted yet, but based on your "pros/cons" it seems like you probably prefer the ball gown one – I think they both are beautiful.  But, you are right that the trumpet dress shows off your figure better.  Trust your gut!  You can’t go wrong!

    I think the 2nd dress is more becoming on you.  I am not sure why you wouldn’t like it in 10 years, as I think it is modern but not overboard.  Plus it may be nice to not be so matchy matchy with the Bridal Party. 

    Good Luck deciding!

    This may be the pictures, but the detail at the waist of the Saison Blanche (trumpet) dress makes your torso look longer and thus your legs shorter.  Because of that it makes you look overall shorter.  Do you have really long legs and a short torso?  I do so I’d understand if you wanted a dropped waist or the detail being lower.  I just can’t tell from the pictures which is why I ask.  I like the fact that the Judd Waddell (ballgown) dress has the belt at your natural waist because it emphasizes your tiny waist more.  I also think it looks better on you from the back.  It gives you more of a feminine shape – more of an hourglass figure.  The sash also looks great with your hair color.  It works on many levels…It’s fabulous.

    What is your gut saying? When you have them both on, which one makes you feel more like a bride? Which one makes you smile inside????

    I think (just personally) that the sash on the first one needs to go. Without it, I love it.  The second one elongates your figure, but I really like the first one the best. Can you perhaps have a seamstress convert the Judd Waddell into a corset back so it shows off your figure a little more if that’s what you want? I originally wanted a trumpet like that, and decided it didn’t "feel" like a wedding dress. I got a dropped slim fit A-line. Best of both worlds for me. Looking back, I’m glad I went with something a little more traditionally weddingy. But if you think your guy would go with dress #2, that’s something to consider! Since you already HAVE both dresses, you could do a change…wear the ballgown for your ceremony, the other one for your reception?! Really, you love them both so much, right? And you already paid for them!!!! And Judd WAddell and Saison Blanche aint’ cheap.

    YAY!!! That’s so beautiful on you! Both are very pretty, and the trupet skirt really isn’t all that modern if you look into some Grace Kelly photos! It’s timeless if you ask me! And I think the coloring of the ball gown looked a little more like fall with the darker champagne sash… my past bridal shop experience is starting to kick in!

     All the best to you!

    Congrats on your decision! I actually voted for the trumpet skirt gown, and I’m sure you’ll look amazing!

    I think when you look back on your wedding pics in 10 years, you might think one or two things look dated (we all will!), but what you’ll remember most is how beautiful you felt and how happy you were. Focus on those feelings. 🙂
