    Firstly – you have an AMAZING FIGURE! 

    Secondly… When I saw the first dress I thought, yep, that’s what I’m voting for. I’m a sucker for lace!! But then I saw the second dress. It’s so elegant. It looks beautiful on you. It looks dreamy where as the first dress is more structured. I love the second dress

    Honestly, both look AMAZING on you. When I read the poll descriptions I thought I was definitely going to like the lace better because I LOVE lace ! but then I saw the second dress and that looks amazing on you! 

    Honestly, I think that if there isn’t a clear winner in your head, then maybe they’re not “the dress”? 

     

    But I absolutely love them both on you! So if you do pick one, you will look wonderful in it!

    @AlicialovesJose:  definitely lace and fitted.  I think it compliments your body type much more than the organza dress.

    I really love both dresses. I do think the organza ball gown makes you look really teeny, whereas the lace gown shows off your curves – both of which are good things. Having said that – if you’re uncomfortable in the lace dress and will feel self-conscious in it all day, I would recommend switching. If you’re only mildly uncomfortable in it, then I would keep the lace for the church wedding – it’s more grand – and then switch into the organza for the reception. I love the idea of a swishy ball gown for the reception, and it means you can sit down/move around/eat to your heart’s content without having to worry about every little bump and shadow showing.

    You definitely don’t have hips you need to worry about overaccentuating!  They’re both beautiful and look great on you…I like the lace one, it looks very romantic and sparkly.

    @AlicialovesJose:  oh sweetie, hard choice! 1 is beautiful on you (great figure!), but in 2 you look so petite… I can’t really decide, but I have an idea-

     

    add an under skirt to the lace one. It’ll give you the a-line shape of dress 2 with the lace detail. very simple to do, and relitively inexpensive (: (we sell them for about $65 in our boutique, and I’ve heard they’re easy to resell!) another great thing about this underskirt is if you take it off for the dance, you technically have two different dresses! 

     

    hope this helps (:

    Urgh I’m torn, both are goregous!

    I ultimately voted for 1 though, for the following reasons:

    You have a gorgeous figure, and 1 shows it off, whereas 2 kind of hides it

    I love lace (lol)

    I think it’s more appropriate for the style of wedding you are having.

     

    Honestly though I don’t think you’d go wrong with either.

    The FIRST one! But do not wear wear that satin belt. The thin rhinestone belt accentuates your waist perfectly! The satin one is too wide and doesn’t allow the lace to flow over you hips.

    Another for #1, the fabric is nicer and I echo the sentiment about your hips.  The second one, the fabric feels sort of piled on and seems to be swallowing you.

    But the bee who said that if it bothers you, don’t get it is right.

    I love the first one, but — and this IS “brutally honest” — you totally rock either one!  You look gorgeous in either dress, so don’t worry about making a wrong decision 🙂

    1st one.  The second dress looks prom-ish and will look dated, I think, in 10 years.
