I like the second dress the Enzoani Calistoga much much better! The only concern that I would have is that when you move around or bend over with the neckline ……I’d be concerned about “the girls” staying put. I can’t tell from the pic if it would fit close and secure in the bust area. If it fits well I say go for that one b/c I like the looks of that dress much better!!

I think the first dress is more flattering on you, especially around your mid section. I think it’s a combination of the material and the draping and rouching around the middle.

What is the fabric on the Demetrios dress? I have to disagree with the majority – it doesn’t look that good, the pick-ups combined with this fabric and diamond-white color (?) are just not working…

I don’t like either dress, tbh. I don’t know if it’s the skirt or the fabric or what. Not your fault at all, though, and I definitely don’t think you look dumpy in either dress.

Both of the gowns are satin 🙂 My fave material next to charmeuse (which I look hideous in). You can’t really see it in the picture of me but the Demetrios dress has a bubbled hem in the back and I HATE bubbled hems. I also think that my waist looks more defined in the Demetrios because of the white material against the white veil. I looked at some other pictures just to be sure and without the veil behind the dress I am like SUPER CHUNK.

Also, I just found out that you can tuck the neckline in just like this on the Enzoani!

I definitely think that the second picture looks better. While the top half of the first one looks nice, I think that the pick-ups are too much. I don’t even think that they look good on the model in the picture, and agree with your Maid/Matron of Honor that it looks like whipped cream. The second dress is nice with the crumb catcher. It is a lot of dress, though!

Second Dress! It’s so much more flattering! Makes you look a lot small than the Demetrios. Dress 1 seems to add weight and dress 2 takes it away. (not that you look big in either one, though, just a small difference)

The second (Enzoani)… I was torn because I’m not a huge fan of crumb catcher necklines, then I saw that it could be tucked – which I would do if it were me. But to be honest, of all the crumb catcher necklines I’ve seen I think this is the nicest. You look beautiful in both, but PLEASE get the second 🙂 By the way, I’m a St.Louis bride too!!
