    Both of those look like wedding dresses. Is it because they’re form fitting instead of poofy? Wedding dresses come in all styles and shapes anymore so you can’t put a label on them. Most women consider anything that is white, regardless of style, to be a wedding dress.

    Wear whatever makes you happy since it’s your wedding, no one else’s.

    They both look like wedding dresses to me.  Not everyone gets a ball gown or mermaid or even floor length gown.  To each her own!

    ETA: I like the first one.

    I LOVE that first one! It looks like a Jenny Packham dress, i.e. totally gorgeous. I tried a Packham dress on that I really loved but unfortunately it didn’t do much for my figure. I vote number 1!

    Both are beautiful. Try them both on before you decide. You want to see how they look on you and how you feel in them. Always keep in mind that what looks great on a model will not necessarily look good on you because they are airbrushed and different proportions. Don’t get a dress unless you are madly in love wtih it and don’t want to take it off at all.

    I love the first dress but I could never wear it. It’s gorgeous though.

    @dghosh:  If it can’t be altered to have a train, would you settle for a cathedral length veil?

    I love the first one, the second one has a great sillouette but I don’t like the fishnet look, but that’s just me.

    I am selling a dress that looks similar to one of these. I have a never been worn Jenny Packham wedding gown. It still has it’s tags on it. Let me know…

    @danceforfun:  Same here, what size is that dress on the maniquin?

    As for the dresses I voted for the first one, it seems to be a bit more feminine than the second which might make you appear too boxy, though we would need to see pictures of you in them of corse.
