    I really love the Maggie on you, it’s a gorgeous dress! That being said, my choice would be the Rivini. I think that fitted properly it’d be stunning, I love the back and the style is just more something that I’d pick. It’s a hard decision because you look gorgeous in both!

    I think you should stick with the Maggie!  Looks really nice.  The other one is sort of plain to me…

    You look great in both, but I voted for the Maggie.

    Oh wow, this is hard and I can see why, you look stunning! Well you seem to have less reservations for the Rivini and are aiming to have it be the one I think, so I voted for that one. The fact that you already ordered it makes me think you know its the dress. You don’t want any regret on your day. A lot of people here are saying the Maggie which is also beautiful, but you know inside what is best. The Rivini does need some alterations to hug you more, which I would see it looking killer afterwards. Does the bodice of the Rivini have crystal detail on it or is it a silver thread design?

    Can you tell us what your venue is like? Were yuo aiming to get a lace dress when you went shopping ?

    Either way you can’t go wrong. Both are timelss and elegant. Go with your heart and just sell the other for as much as you can.

    Hmm it appears my taste is agains the norm here as I LOVE the first dress (Rivini). It is so elegant and timeless and I love the simplicity of it. The back is absolutely stunning with the trim. I am not a huge fan of lace so perhaps I am a bit biased.

    Either dress will look amazing and they are very similar in shape/style. Not sure if you mentioned it but what is your venue/theme? Perhaps one fits better than the other?

    I think that once dress 1 is has been altered it will look amazing. that dress is so elegant.

    @bluesteel: You look gorgeous in both and will look stunning in either. If you can afford it, I think you have your answer based on your last post! Go with the Rivini, that’s what your gut is telling you after seeing the results 🙂 I love WB polls for just that reason…not to tell you which direction, but to check your feelings when you see what everyone thinks. Good luck!

    I’m probably a little biased because I have bought the Maggie Sottero Doreen dress too but the Doreen looks absolutely stunning on you!
