I’d love your help on picking my wedding dress! I picked out two front-runners, but just cannot decide which one to choose! I picked out a Marisa and a Pronovias dress. I like the Marisa for the subdued rouching on the dress, but I like the Pronovias for its fabric and the bodice. The Marisa is taffetta so it’s a bit shiny, which I’m not a huge fan of. I like the silk dupioni on the Pronovias a bit more, but it looks like a lot of dress/fabric. I would probably fold in the last pleat as you see in the picture (that’s why it looks so bulky there). But overall, I’m not sure if the Pronovias actually looks too bulky on me. So if you could give your input, I’d really appreciate it! Thanks!!

They are both beautiful! I voted for the Pronovias because I like the shape of it a little more.

They look so similar! I voted for #2 because I like the overall fit better and that the waistline is clearly defined. However both dresses look beautiful on you!

I like the second one better for the same reason you mentioned. I do not like the shine of the first one. And I just like the pleated/ruching detailing on the second one a lot better.

the marisa makes you look sleeker. both dresses are very similar and the style suits you. is the marisa sample a smaller size?

i like the second one better, the shape is a lot nicer on you, in my opinion 🙂

It is hard to tell in the pictures. I think the first one gives you more curves. But I can’t tell if it is just because they aren’t a true fit to your size. It sounds like you like the second one better but I could be reading your message wrong. I think I like the First one. Do you have more pictures?

These dresses look so similar to me, and you note that you like the fabric of the second better.. so my vote would be the Pronovias. As far as your question about the bulkiness.. no, I don’t see it at all. It looks great.

They are both very pretty – I like the lines and fit of the Marisa better though. I think where the waist sits on the Marisa really accentuates your tiny waist!

I LOVE the Marissa on you. I think it hugs all the right places, giving you the perfect shape. The Pronovias is beautiful as well, but I don’t think it accents your body as well.

It is hard to pick, since they are both pretty similar, but I think the Marissa has a better neck line for you! I like them both though, and if you prefer the fabric on the second, you should go for that!

In terms of fit, Marisa is better on you (the bodice/waist/hips). The way the Pronovias lays makes you look hippy-er than you really are. I agree though that the Pronovias fabric is slightly better. Is there another dress that perhaps incorporates both the fabric of the Pronovias and the cut and lie of the Marisa?

Thanks SOOOO much for all your comments! This really helps! Interesting that the polls show the Marisa is the favorite, but the comments say otherwise? Maybe that’s because I accidentally deleted the poll and had to re-insert it. Here are more pictures. Thanks!

I was going to say the exact same thing as DG, I think the second one (Pronovious) actually makes you look a little more wider & the first one (Marisa) makes your frame look slender & tall 🙂
Ok…. just saw your new pics added & def rooting for Marisa 🙂 Now that I can see more of the detailing, it is absolutly beautiful & very flattering!

PS I am biased b/c I am wearing a Marisa. Also, the quality of Marisa dresses are better than Pronovias IMO. I actually was deciding between a Marisa and Pronovias at one point too : )
