Hi All! I am new here, been lurking around for a few days and checking out so many of your great dresses and so many polls of people wanting help deciding. I hope you can all help me. 🙂
I am going to be getting married in Key West in November on the beach. We will be having about 60 people there. So I figured since it was on the beach I didn’t want to much bling or sparkle being out in the Sun. Both dresses fit that bill. I included the 2nd pic of the Presca Marie with a different sash I figure I could change to for the reception to add more sparkle later.
Shopping for a dress has been tough for me, since I am from NJ and recently moved to Texas. So I have had no one to go with me to look at the dresses and only get to send pictures to my friends at home to try to help me decided. Right now I have a split decission from them and I really do love both dresses. I tried writting out the pros and cons of each dress and that didn’t seem to help either, since I have 2 cons and 5 pros for each, and the cons weren’t anything major on either. So I hope I get a lot more votes for on over the other on here and can finally order my dress. 🙂
Please keep in mind both of them were way to small (the Geneva was closer in size and closed up somewhat) and the long line bra they gave me to try on was to big I am a 38 and they had me in a 42, so that added more bulk under the dress, and I already have enough of that don’t need more. lol
Look forward to hearing what you all think. (Presca Marie with sash it comes with)

I really love the Presca with the crystal sash. Those big flowers just don’t do anything for you imo. Good luck!

I like the details better on the Presca Marie. Also, I like the first sash better but both look fine! 🙂

I am leaning towards Geneva, it has a little something that makes me smile 🙂 Both look great tho ! If you go with Presca Marie, you can definately do the crystal sash ! It looks great !

Personally I’m not a big fan of the Geneva, but I love the Presca Marie. It’s beautiful and elegant yet understated, and perfect for a beach wedding. I like both sashes, but I have to say I prefer the Crystal one!

I love the Presca Marie with the crystal sash on you! I’m a llittle biased though, because Presca Marie was on my list of dresses that I really wanted to try and none of the stores I went to had a sample.

I really like the Geneva on you! It’s more unique. I love the flowers on it! Which one do you feel more beautiful in? I agree with the other Bees in that you do look great in both so you can’t make a wrong choice

Thanks Ladies! I was leaning toward the Presca Marie for the reasons that squeak said, but I was liking that little bit of Whimsical that Geneva had.
I prefer the crystal sash also, but thought maybe we could make the flower sash thinner and leave that for the ceremony on the beach with a flower in my hair and switch to the crystal sash with a crystal headband for the reception.

Although both of them look nice, I really like the first one with the flower sash. I think the tiered lace at the bottom is a nice touch.

Thank You All so much for your votes and opinions. Was driving myself crazy trying to decided. Looks like the hands down winner is the Presca Marie, so I will be oredering that this Friday when I go back in. I don’t think I would have went wrong on either, but I really did like that I can change the Presca up. Glad to have on decision down. Now to decided on shoe, headpiecs, and jewlery.

Although I really, really WANT to like the Geneva more — because the two-toned flowers and texture are so beautiful and visually interesting — I must admit that I, too, have decided that I like the Presca Marie with the crystal sash the best.
You want your guests to be focusing on YOU, not the floral appliques scattered all over your gown. If the Geneva had just ONE cluster of flowers at the waist, I may have picked it, but, I think all of that two-toned texture will be too distracting and you will not project the overall affect you’re seeking.
