@beachrunner26:  the Pronovias is really lovely, but it looks like it would be cumbersome to wear in Aruba.  The second one looks stunning on you!  I really like that silhouette so I think if you can make it work, look for something similar to that 🙂

I think both dresses look to heavy for Aruba, however the silhouette/style of the second dress looks the best. So maybe the same cut as the second dress but in a much more airy fabric?

That first dress is a-mah-zing! the feather bust is something unique and wonderful, and then that ruffled skirt is just beautiful, light and airy (looking). But I understand why you might not want to wear it, layers & layers of any fabric (even tulle) can make you sweat.

I’m sorry, but that Maggie is too typical and blah compared to how you look in the first gown. It actually looks way more uncomfortable and inappropriate for an Aruba wedding in May.

DO NOT let your venue/destination dictate what style/shape gown you want to wear! Of course, make sure you account for heat, so likely heavy satin gowns w/tons of add-ons would not be comfortable or feasible. But if you want to wear a certain shape (ball gown, a-line, etc.) you can…you just have to be very conscientious about what fabrics you choose (there’s a good reason why people generally gravitate toward chiffon).

Here are some suggestions w/in your parameters:

  • Pronovias Urkidi (a-line; tulle & lace)

  • jim Hjlem 8961 (fit&flare; chantilly lace)

  • Tara Keely 2052 (trumpet; alencon lace and tulle)

  • Augusta Jones Judith (a-line; lace & organza)

  • Enzoani Gywneth (trumpet; chiffon, lace, tulle)

The first dress is amazing and so beautiful on you but so is the second one.  I would definitelty wear the second one for a destination wedding.  It just looks lighter and more beachy!
