    honestly I’m not loving either…the 2nd one is too busy for me.  But I would get what YOU love and what YOU feel beautiful in!

    If I had to choose between the two i would say the first. But honestly you need to wear the one that makes you feel great.

    eek sorry I just voted for the first one because I like that style more but I notice the second one (the bright white one) is more slimming because of where the sash is and you look much more comfortable in it. I like the top part of it but I am not really a fan of the skirt part. I think a similar dress with a more traditional skirt part would be the most flattering

    I voted the more traditional because the bottom of the other is really busy at the bottom and just doesn’t flow right, it’s like to different styles of dresses blended (my opinion). I think the other one is much prettier.

    I actually prefer the first one on you.  I also think the champaign looks better with you skin-tone than stark white.  Are you asking because now you are having doubts about the new dress too?

    I like the first one on you…maybe b/c you have the complete look on….the second dress is just too busy….but it does have more of the “WoW” factor.The first is lil bit more traditional and the 2nd is more fun…. Wear what makes you feel comfortable…

    I’m a two dress bride and I’m actually wearing one to the church ceremony and the other to my reception

    @soontobemrskeen: if YOU like the white dress and feel more comfortable in it (magic words, in my book) then go for it!

    Yes, a lot more people (strangers) on this message board prefer the first one and I bet if you asked most of America, they’d prefer the first one too simply because it’s more traditional and the second one is a little more niche. But your style may not match everyone else’s and that’s okay.

    And honestly, the second dress DOES appear to fit you better. So go with what fits and flatters your body and who you are. WE’RE not wearing the dress, after all.

    I agree that the 2nd one fits you better. The first one looks like it just needs a little something more. I prefer the unique look of the 2nd, and you look happier in it.

    I choose the second one, although I’m not a huge fan of the very bottom. You look so much more confident in it. I think the first one does not flatter your youth. But you’ll look great in either one!

    The first one is beautiful. The skirt of the second is a mess IMO. Maybe it would look better steamed?
