    I voted for the Maggie dress. I think it is very beautiful on you and seems more like a bridal gown.

    I would get the second altered into a short dress for the reception

    You look gorgeous in both dresses, but the Maggie feels more wedding/cathedral to me.  I think the Eden would be gorgeous for bridal photos or maybe as a reception dress!  You are right that it has an opera dress feel to it.  🙂

    I like dress number 2, but the gloves are really throwing me.  I think without the gloves would look much better.

    I love both, but something about the Eden dress is just so gorgeous.  Another bee has a similiar dress to your Eden, take a look here:

    Hair trial with my headband, grecian style! Honest opinions please!

    I know she is figuring out the accessories, as well. 

    Both dresses look great on you, it’s really a win-win either way.

    ETA: Btw, I’d consider doing a super long (cathedral +), very sheer, 1 tier veil with the Eden, that will make it almost vintage and definately a royal wedding feel which is more than appropriate for a cathedral wedding and will add drama to it. Maybe with some of the dress accents and do that soft ivory-ish color of the dress for your veil tulle color.

    I realize I am in the minority, lol. What does your family/friends think?

    I would definitely wear both!! shorten the lace gown or keep it and just go with a different look for the reception (if anyone asks just tell them its easier to dance in the second one) 


    if your going to stick to one wear the maggie your figure looks amazing in it!

    The maggie seems more bridal and cathedral appropriate to me and the eden is more of a party dress maybe for the end of the night dancing. I wouldn’t shorten it though.

    oh, the eden for sure!  but i detest full gowns, so i’m biased i think.  and i’d do a birdcage blusher for the veil (nothing else), with a bling-y hair piece.  and i’d lose the gloves, lol.

    I like #2 but I really think the gloves threw me off. They dont match…

    I voted for #1

    Maggie is very figure flattering on you.  It also looks more feminine and more bridal.

    @georgiaann: You can’t wear both? They are both stunning.

    I would suggest wearing the Maggie dress for the ceremony and photos and the other dress (amazing find BTW!!!) for the reception as it is a bit lighter and might let you get your groove on a little easier.

    Both are gorgeous and you will look fantastic either way!!!
