- Wedding: September 2012
Hello there bees.
I troll these boards a lot, getting ideas and helpful hints and I was hoping you all might be able to help me with my dress dilemna.
I have fallen in love with two very different, very beautiful gowns and I need help picking one.
To give a good picture, I am 5’6″ and 170lbs so I am a curvy, curvy girl. These hips just plain do not lie. We are having a laid back wedding with an Asian theme (paper lantern centerpieces, origami on the tables, etc) and there will be a lot of dancing, drinking, and overall merrymaking (the wedding will be around 250 friends and family members and we ALL like to have a good time).
The first dress that I love is Maggie Sottero’s Clarissa gown:
The picture doesn’t do it justice – it has a beautiful lace pattern with little jewels all over, creating a beautiful sparkle and an eye catching design. It’s regal and elegant and just exactly what I picture a vintage dress to be.
The second dress is the Allure 8766:
It is young, fun, trendy, and overall a very striking statement. It hugs my curves in ALL the right places and it’s exactly what I thought I wanted BEFORE I tried on the Clarissa dress.
So, I need your help bees! Do I go with fun and flirty or do I go with traditional, elegant, and beautiful? Which do you think will look the best with our theme? .
In the end, I love them both and would be stoked to wear either – I just need some helpful, outside advice so that I can finally choose the right one and end all of the back and forth!!!
Thank you in advance for all of your help!!!!
