I love the satin dress. Trends come and go so even the lace dress will be dated in a few years time. Honestly though, who cares if it is a little dated when you look that amazing in it! Personally, I think it’s classic and elegant. No one at your wedding is going to be sitting there saying it’s dated because you look like a million dollars in it. 

The back of the lace dress is pretty but I think the front is meh. It also looks like every other wedding dress on the rack right now. It’s so on trend, I don’t think it stands out at all.

Go with your gut. If you love the satin one, go for it!

Neither is any more dated to me than the other.  And in 25 years, it wont matter and both will probably be “dated”.  Wear the one you love.

Sadly, I’d have to say yes.  I tried on the same dress you have, and for as much as I say I hated everything that dress is, I keep going back to look at me in that dress.  The only reason I even tried it on was because I hated it so much, figuring if I felt anything other than “meh” it went to the fitting room.

It seems like the trend now is lacy and beaded, which is frustrating.  When everything was satin/ruched/mermaidy, I wanted lacy and beaded and sheathed and sleeved/strapped.  Now that everything is lacy and beaded and sleeved/strapped and sheathy and I have started trying things on, I find that I really like the satin/ruchedstyle.  

Of course.  yell

I am not a fan of satin at all so I’m biased, but the second dress is stunning on you! No contest!

I normally don’t like satin, but I think the first dress is amazing on you. Your body would probably look great in anything, but also – if you love the dress, you should get it!

I can’t stand satin. So I am not a fan.

But everything will look dated in 10 years.

Hmmm.  I think the ruching on the satin dress looks a tad dated and the beading on the bodice of the second dress looks dated.

The satin looks much better on you In My Humble Opinion. Go for what you love!

I don’t think the satin dress appears dated.  I just prefer #2 and the way it flatters your figure better.  I am also biased and love lace.  That said, #1 flatters your figure very well too and is gorgeous, especially with the train.  I wouldn’t worry about what looks dated, and just wear what you love 🙂

I like the satin dress quite a bit but would the train become creased and wrinkled?

IMO yes, the ruching and satin is dated. That being said… it’s all dated in the end so get what you want. I like #2 much better personally.

Any dress anyone picks now will look dated in 10-20 years anyways. So I wouldn’t really care what anyone else thinks. As long as you like it. Personally, I love satin and think it looks gorgeous.

Who decided satin is dated? YES it had a spike of popularity in the 2000’s, but so what? While both dresses are STUNNING on you, my honest opinion is go with the satin! Everyone is going to expect the lacy dress, that satin dress will turn heads and make you stand out amongst other brides this season!
