I’m so certain that one of these is the one that I can’t bring myself to share pictures of them with friends, so I’m turning to the hive. Both dresses are in Ivory, but I’d order in white. We got the Lacy one to look good, but only if I was holding up my boobs. Alterations would help with that. We’re doing an indoor/formalish ceremony. It’s a theater that used to be a sancutary. The reception is outside in a tent. So I want a formal(ish) gown that would also work outside. Help me pick which one both looks awesome on me and fits that goal. Please.

I love the second one!! Which do you prefer at this point? 🙂

That is a TOUGH choice, I really think they both look great on you!
I prefer the second one just a TAD more, but seriously you can’t go wrong with EITHER of those dresses!

They are both lovely, the second one I like in particular.
Did you look at any in the same silhouettes without horizontal lines? I’m sorry if I’m judging inaccurately, but it looks like you may be on the shortish side like me, and I kind of thought horizontal lines work better on tall people.

Is the second one the lacy one? If so…the poll results might be messed up.
I like #2. They’re both very similar, but your waist looks tiny in #2!

I am not with the majority here. I actually prefer the 1st dress with the ruffles but I am a sucker for feminine details especially lace. The first dress also has a train while the second one didn’t. You look great in both so I don’t think you can go wrong either way. 🙂

They’re both lovely but I like the 2nd one a little better on you. I didn’t vote because I couldn’t tell which was which. I also just love the skirt on the 2nd one.

@tritaratops: I am short (5’3″) and had similar concerns about the horizontal lines. I did try on at least one ball gown with vertical ruffles and liked it, but in comparing the pictures side by side I don’t think it made me any longer than the horizontal. It’s a good thought that I hadn’t thought of. Thank you.
I really like the second dress the best, but was concerned that it was too poofy for the outdoor reception. It’s not as heavy as it looks but it’s still got some bulk to it.

I voted neither. Would love to see you in different styles 🙂
