    I went with dress #2 – it’s so much more unique, and the cut of the sleeves is MUCH more flattering!

    Which one does she prefer?

    I prefer dress 2 I think it gives her a better shape:)

    I like #2 better as well, gives her better shape and is somehow more youthful. maybe the siouhette of #1 is so common that I instantly think “old” or matronly. 


    By The Way, your mom has an awesome body! She should show it off!

    #2 is more flattering than #1, but I also think she could do better.  🙂

    @jlpalumbo: I like #2 better, but you also might want to keep looking.

    • #1 adds too much bulk, but I love the sparkle and the wide neck.
    • #2 shows off your mother’s wondefully slim figure, and the beaded embroidery in the bodice is exquisite. However, the sleeves are cutting off her arms in an unflattering way (they are right at that angle that doesn’t work for most women). 

    I think a dress that combines the wide neck of #1 with everything else in #2 would be fabulous. Or you could just alter #2 a bit. Either way, your mum is going to look fantastic (and you are an absolutely lovely bride–adore all of the lace detailing).

    @jlpalumbo:  As a MOB last month, I say #2.  Your mum is the second most important woman on the day – after you.  She should look the part, and that dress makes her look OH SO ELEGANT.  Lovely dress and agree she has the body to wear it.  So important!!

    I was going to say number one at first, but I looked at 2 again and I agree. The first one is less flattering IMO. Number 2 really does show off her body

    i would go dress 2 aswell. your mum looks like she has a lovely petite figure and the bulkiness of the first one overwhelms her! looking at the pick of you sitting behind you in your dress, it looks like she has smashing legs.. would she consider wearing a knee length dress to show them off?

    I chose 1 as there’s something about 2 that I’m not sure of. However I don’t like the bulk 1 has

    #1 is very elegant, but is adding bulk. Not sure if it’s because it’s too big on her, or just the way the fabric falls. I love the detail of #2, but the sleeves are not the most flattering. I would keep looking!
