- Wedding: June 2009
So I am a loyal weddingbee reader and I highly value the advise you other bees offer so I’m coming to you for help. I am a TWO DRESS BRIDE and need help deciding which dress to choose. I have already purchased both of these dresses. They are completely different and I love them both for different reasons. I first bought the trumpet skirt on a day when i wanted to feel sexy and modern on my wedding day and I bought the ball gown on a day when I wanted to feel like a princess and more traditional. My ceremony is in a formal church setting, with a reception at a country club on the lake (so not ballroom formal, but still a sit down formal dinner).
Here are some things Ii Love and Don’t Love about each of the dresses:
Judd Waddell Gown:
LOVE: Alacone lace bodice, full silk skirt, princess feeling, fun photos opts with big gowns, warm color (darker ivory), only get to wear this big of a gown once in your life! Champagne sash goes with champagne colors bridesmaid dresses (which are tea length with taupe sash)
Don’t Love: Doesn’t show off figure, makes me look shorter (i’m 5’7"), its actually a used gown (which i love and don’t love at the same time…the dress has history, but also not a brand new dress just for me),
LOVE: Sexy, shows off my figure (who knows how long that will last!), modern, sleek, swarvski crystal buttons down back, the bustle is gorgeous, makes me look like i have a bigger bust….and most importantly if my Fiance had a choice i think he would choose this one…but what guy wouldn’t!
Don’t Love: Not as comfortable, too trendy? won’t like in 10 years, doesn’t make me feel like a princess, no fun ball gown photos opts
Can you see my dilema? PLEASE HELP! I need opinions on which dress you all think I should wear!
