So as of today I have 2 dresses that I have narrowed my choice to,
1 maggie sottero charlotte
Davids Bridal’s Allover beaded corded lace A-line gown. Style CT2406
Now heres the “numbers” game. The Maggie is a base price of $1500 cdn. The DB dress is on right now for $599USD, and they are throwing in the extra length for free, which makes the dress about $650USD taxes inc. I will be adding a corset back to the DB dress, and with the bustle I am looking at about $900 for EVERYTHING!
Don’t get me wrong, I love the Maggie, but for some reason the DB dress made me feel less self conscious.
I am still unsure about the black sash, we are doing a black and white and pink damask themed wedding, and i thought the black was quite nice, do you think its too harsh, and people would “talk” about why i am wearing black? Or should I just do a pink sash?
Price aside, what do you ladies think about both dresses?? Here are some more of the DB dress, I couldn’t take more of the Maggie bc the bridal salon didn’t allow it
Now another question….the price of the DB is now $599…does that mean it will stay this price forever, or could it go up to $799 again, or should I chance it going lower…or is it just impossible to know lol being a finance major I can’t help but let the numbers affect me…
so what do you bees think??? is it good enough to go ahead with…i need your approval

I love the DB dress on you!!! You do not have to have the dress altered there they are very high. I like the black sash, but if you are not sure about it then examine other options on etsy. There are some really good options.

I think the DB dress is a lot more flattering on you. I am not sure about the black sash though. I think the pink might look more summery.

I think the DB dress is more flattering on you – I’d go with that one. And if you love it, I don’t think I’d wait and chance the price going up again.

That DB dress is wonderful. It looks really great on you. If it makes you feel better I’d say go for it. If I’ve learned anything it is that when it comes to clothes I cannot function in something that makes me feel self conscious!
And also, the other dress is pretty BUT the David’s Bridal dress is so much more flattering on you. I think it looks great in the photos.
I’d got for a lighter color and fabric for the sash. I think a pink will work well. I’d do some searches online for some lighter pink sashes.

would the pink sash make my waist look wider? since its a lighter color?

I also love the DB dress on you. I don’t love the black sash, but it might be the way it’s tied. I tend to prefer sashes to have the knot or bow in the back…but that’s me. And I definitely don’t think a pink sash would make you look “wide”! You’re itty bitty!

I like the DB dress way more. If black isn’t one of your wedding colors then I would suggest another color.

@emb610: the only reason i didn’t do it at the back is because I LOVE the train…and didn’t want anything to take away from it

I love both on you and really think you pull off either beautifully.
I like the black sash too! I don’t think anything could make your waist look wider 🙂

The DB dress looks fantastic on you. Can you order it with a matching sash, instead of the pink or black.
