It would help so much to see them on you, but since we can’t for sure I like #2 better.  #1 feels more business than wedding.

You know…I think I like the first one! It’s different but not something that you will look back on in 20, 30, 50 years and think "what the hell was I thinking?" I’m not a poufy person and if you’re slim like the model, I think Jules would flatter you the best. Good luck!

First off, you have fabulous taste–both of those gowns are incredibly elegant and classic.  I feel the first is more timeless (though have you seen it with the mantilla veil? I’m wondering if that collar would work with a drapey veil, as mantillas often graze the shoulders and such).  The second’s pockets and belt make it a bit more 2008/2009, but it’s also quite elegant.  #2 would be lovely with a mantilla veil.

So, my vote is number one if the veil works.

Number two is also lovely and fabulous, just in a different way.

Honestly I dont know how well either of them would go with a mantilla veil, they both seem too trendy to go something as classic as a mantilla.  If I had to choose one of these I would say #2 but honestly I would make sure you try both dresses on with the veil before deciding since I have a feeling you may not like the combination and may want to continue looking.

Jules! Its very Carolina Herrera! I’m wearing Vineyard Emily and I loooveeee that line!

However, if you want to wear your mom’s veil, go with the second one.   A birdcage veil would look better with the first one.

I bought Madison!  I also loved Jules but didn’t try it on.  I went to try on Antigua (a short dress by the new collection, Reverie) but it wasn’t in yet and I completely fell in love with Madison.  I went back 2 months later and bought it.  I put it on and KNEW it was the dress for me (plus pockets! score!)  Can’t wait to see which one you pick 🙂

I think it depends on the feel you want your wedding to have. I think dress #1 would fit in at a modern wedding, while dress #2 would work in different situations but has a modern twist.

I DEFINITELY like the jules one more. It is so classic and would look beautiful in a private residence/cathedral setting with navy bridesmaid gowns. oh I love it already!

ooooh I love both of them.  So timeless and classic and, (you’re right), grace kelly.  that was the first thing I thought.  Personally I love the first one the best.  It’s very chic and different for a wedding.  However, I don’t think a mantilla veil would really go with it because I think the collar of the dress would compete with the veil.

So, I’m saying go with number 2.  I’m usually not into puffy dresses AT ALL but this one is sooo chic and timeless.  It doens’t have that overly sweet princess puffiness that all those dresses with pickups have.  Whatever you chose, both are gorgeous.  Congrats on your amazing taste! 🙂

Both are absolutely gorgeous!  I don’t think you’ll go wrong with either.

Jules – LOVE it and would be my first choice.  However, I don’t think of this as a timeless dress, I think of this as a very vintage, old hollywood, understated glamour.  I don’t see a mantilla with it, but more a chic birdcage and maybe some short gloves if you really want to go dramatic.

Madison – Also very pretty, and think this is more the classic and timeless choice.  This dress I think has elements of all the years past and present.  Very girly and could definitely see the mantilla with this. 

 Good luck, both great options!

I tried on the Madison gown a few weeks back.  I wound up really liking another PoB style (Molly) from that same shopping trip.  Both dresses are beautiful and classic and edgy all rolled into one.  The one thing that my mother kept emphasizing about the Madison gown (and it’s the kind of dress that’s right up her alley), is that it’s not a dress for men.  In other words, men might not understand the appeal of it (although they do love boobs and tiny waists).  The Jules might have more of a sexiness that appeals to men.  Take that opinion for what you will – obviously every man is different, and for your wedding the emphasis should be on how you feel in the dress as opposed to making people (men or otherwise) happy.  Pockets at a wedding are pretty neat, though.  So after all that, my vote is with the Jules dress, but you’re in a pretty neat dilemma.  They’re both lovely.
