    It could totally just be the lighting difference between the pics of the two dresses, but I LOVE the sparkle on the marielena! Truly they are both stunning dresses and I don’t believe you could go wrong, but if i had to pick… Marielena!

    You look great in both, so you can’t go wrong either way!  I do like the uniqueness of the assymetrical line on the Jillian, so I like that one slightly better…

    I really like them both (sorry I’m no help) and yes it may be the lighting. What I do want to say is I don’t think the dresses need a sash.

    The dresses are extremely similar, and they’re both very beautiful.  Each gown has some unique and special details.  However, without hesitation, I am going to choose the Jillian for you, and here is why.

    You have a fantastic figure, and I believe that the Jillian is simply much better proportioned for you.  The dress falls beautifully and effortlessly along your curves. Especially from the front, it looks as if it were made for you!

    As beauitful as the Marielena is (I especially love the back of this dress), I believe that the main section of the gown looks as if it extends far too low on your body, and I do not think the result is as flattering. (Your figure still looks amazing; however, to me, the dress looks too “tubular” and as if the bodice needs to be cropped much farther up and as if the tulle should start much higher.  Of course, this is just my opinion.)

    Definitely TOTALLY JIllian! It just seems perfect for your body shape and you KNOW you love it! I would say get it at the store where you can get it cheaper, if possible, and then you can buy the belt elsewhere!

    I don’t dislike the second dress, but I think the first dress is more unique, more beautiful, and looks the best on you.  What color are you considering for your belt?

    The Jillian fits you amazingly well. As someone who has been seduced by Marielena (when I put it on I could not imagine getting married in something else) I was all ready to tell you Marielena was the best and you should get it… lol, but the Jillian is a lot more flattering.

    Hard to see the details in the second. I really liked Jillian when I tried it on though. I love how the detail asymmetrically blends away. I see that the Marilena’s detailng stops more abruptly, gets slightly poofier there and also cuts off horizontally. The line is more harsh. It cuts you off, in my opinion. The shape and way the detailing of the Jillian is much nicer, from what I can tell.
