I think your choice would look great with hers!  I wouldn’t worry about the lace “matching”.  I feel like it’s actually a nice contrast that you are both not wearing lace.  From the picture you gave, it looks like your FI’s dress is pink which fades into a white ombre?  If so, I think that would really tie in well with your white dress.  If you want yours to be more matchy, you could also introduce some more pink elements to yours, such as some pink shoes or accessories.  I think it would look great.

I was under the impression the HP 2017 spring gowns weren’t out yet? Or am I mistaken on this?

 Variety is the spice of life! You don’t need to dresses that look similar. The fact thay are both gorgoeus bridal dresses will provide sufficnient compatibility. I think wear your Essence and you too will look divine.

Oh I love the Chandon gown! I had my heart set on Leah, but I definitely want to try Chandon on too! Your fiance is going to look stunning!

Honestly, don’t “settle” I understand trying for a cohesive look, but you are also the bride and deserve your perfect dress! I think that the Chandon is fairly simple because there aren’t a ton of embellishments, and I am wondering if you can find a lacy mermaid with a softer skirt to tie the two gowns together. I think lace will look perfectly fine if that is what you want and I think the contrast will actually look quite nice!

Maybe looking for something with a horsehair skirt like the Chandon has might help? Check out Hayley Paige Brooke (this one probably has my vote), Honor, or Tanner. You should also look at Watters because I feel like those dresses have a similar vibe to Hayley Paige. 

Good luck finding your dream gown- can’t wait to see what you choose!

I like the idea of you guys having different dresses with a consistent piece or color. Like you could have a subtle pink accessory or shoe? Something small that ties you together. I would be afraid of getting too matchy-matchy.

You are two separate brides and the individuality of each of you should stand out… both dresses make you both happy so don’t go with something that you aren’t in love with..  BTW both dresses are stunning!!

I wouldn’t worry about “matching” at all. You are two individuals. You will both be beautiful.

I would also not worry about adding pink accessories. You are not cake toppers.

Lace would be awesome – a nice contrast and dramatic in it’s own way. Buy a dress you love!
