I vote for the first one. I like how the fabric accentuates your waiste and is simple yet elegant. It seems to have a more relaxed fit on you compared to the second dress which appears to be stiffer. The first one you can defintely get some jewelry and a veil that would really make an ensemble… whereas the second one already has beading (?) so it would appear busy if you tried to even dress up the second one. Is one more comfortable than the other? Like- if you close your eyes when wearing one or the other- does one feel different?

I like to first one, also. you look more relaxed in it, and I think that its cut is more flattering on you.

I agree with the comments above. Although I would normaly choose a dress that is the style of the second one, I love the first one on you. it just suits your figure very much, whereas you look almost uncomfortable in the second one. Good luck choosing one!

The first one – totally.  I like them both but the first one has such classic lines and yet it’s got a little jazz going on with the ruching. And it looks awesome on you.  Plus, it’s simple enough that you could add something wild to the ensemble. You could do a huge flower/feather thing in your hair.  You could do really wild and sparkly shoes.  You could do a big fun veil.  You could have a seamstress add crystals to the ruching. You could have a seamstress add feathers to it!  (I’m feather-obsessed.)


Good luck!  You’ve got 2 awesome dresses to choose from.

Both are beautiful on you, but I definitely like the first one best! You are well endowed (lucky!), and the spaghetti straps really help proportion you beautifully. The ruching accentuates your small waist, and, like someone else mentioned, the simplicity of it leaves room for some accessorizing! Your confliction is totally understandable… both dresses are gorgeous!

I actually like the second one…..but I am not sure if its because the first one looks a little small on top?  You have, to be blunt, boobs.  I do too, and I know its hard….but the first dress REALLY shows them off.  that being said, if you are actually ordering it in your size, it may help in that area.  and therefore I might like the first one better!

Well first of all I think you need to ask yourself if you want to feel more simple that day or more shiny?  The first dress is simple elegance, while the other has some shimmer because of the detail. 

I don’t know you, but just from looking at the photos it just seems like you look more like you in dress #1.  Oh and looking at some of your older posts, I LOVE the back of that dress.  So beautiful!  Just my 2 cents. =)

I like the first one better. I think it is more flattering on you (you look beautiful in it). It is not overdone in beading but has nice details in the ruching. The cut of the top frames your face better. The v of the neckline creates a more vertical eye-line that slenderizes you. Gorgeous!

The first one. Definitely. The shirred fabric slederized your waist and the cut of the back is absolutely flattering and gorgeous!

Definitely #1.  You look more comfortable in that dress.
