    I never like that first dress on any bride. At all. I voted to wear the a-line only.

    You have a nice figure and I think you should show it off with the a-line dress and not hide it with the ball gown dress.

    The a-line (is it the dabra?) is SO much more elegant. I say stick with that. You said it yourself that you wouldn’t have bought the first dress if you had gotten the 2nd first.

    dkfls:  I would stick with the a-line as well. I understand having two different dresses if you want a “reception” dress, but honestly, those are both “ball gowns” to me and too similar. I’d sell the first one.

    A-line all the way!

    That ballgown looks ridiculously bottom heavy.

    I actually LOVE the first dress. With the right stand out jewelery and maybe a sash, I feel like that would be GORGEOUS on you.

    Your first dress looks just like mine! So gorgeous and I certainly don’t think it looks cheap or not-elegant. It’s just different since the trend right now is the slimmer fitting type of gowns, it’s certainly very regal in its own way and I think you look absolutely stunning in it.

    There’d be no point in changing gowns since the second is almost as big as the first.

    I’m not a ball gown person, so I much prefer the A-line. Very pretty. To be honest, even the a-line is quite big and they look very similar in style to me! I wouldn’t see the point in getting changed and using one as a reception dress.

    I would ROCK that first dress all night long!!! I personally like ball gowns, and that is what wore on my wedding dress, a ball gown. The first dress is just so gorgeous on you, you should definetely wear it.

    dkfls:  Aren’t they both ballgowns?  The second just isn’t as poofy.  I don’t see enough difference to wear them both.  I would just wear dress 2 and sell the first.

    I don’t think the first dress looks cheap, but the second is definitely more romantic and elegant.

    I think they are both lovely in their own right, but seem too similar for there to be much point in wearing both. I think my personal predernce leans towards the first one – it’s more exciting and unique – but you like the second dress better then I’d just wear that.
