    I think they are both beautiful! I don’t think that the Maggie will upstage your 2nd dress at all and I really like the belt you added!

    I think the maggie does upstage the Lusan dress. I just think it looks more ‘special’ I could picture this looking stunning over the course of the day, whereas the Lusan seems a bit more subdued?

    I love them both! I think they are just different. I think the Maggie is gorgeous for your civil ceremony, but the Lusan is a perfect beautiful and classic wedding dress. Don’t sweat it, they are both beautiful! Go with your original plan, and if you feel more blinged out with the sash, go for it!

    I say go sashless on the Lusan! It is so stunning without! And the maggie is definitely gorgeous, and it’s okay that they are so different. You wouldn’t want to wear to extremely similar dresses.

    I think they’re both pretty.  I like the lace option better for the actual wedding ceremony.  🙂  I like it better without the sash.

    I think they are both beautiful in their own way. Just because the maggie has more detail, doesn’t mean it is going to upstage the other. 🙂 And I think the veil will help give it an extra oomph. I also really like the idea of a sash, and think your dress could pull it off well. But I don’t like that particular one with your dress. Maybe try a different one? Something a little more blingy even?

    I love the Maggie.  I think because the silhouettes are similar, you can wear the Maggie to both.  I feel like the other dress is a little plain compared with the Maggie.

    @xlittlemissbridex:  

    I agree, I think a “blingy-ier” belt would be better… Perhaps one that is a *bit wider AND has bling all the way around it (no offense but the yellowish ribbon cheapens the look of your BEAUTIFUL lace dress).

    I love the idea of a blingy sash with the lace gown, but I agree with Pand0ra that the yellow ribbon sash might not be right.  I think it should blend with the dress better.  Maybe something like jewels on organza.  That would be a more cohesive look.  But go with what YOU want!

    And by the way, I absolutely LOVE the Maggie gown!  It’s insanely gorgeous and very glamourous.  Is that the type of feeling you want to evoke at the big ceremony?  Or is classic, traditional, and romantic the feeling you want (which I think the lace dress evokes)?
