Hey ladies –
This is officially my first post (wohoo!) I needed some help choosing a gown. I am looking for a vintage type dress that is traditional yet unique in a fit and flare type style (I pretty petite and some other styles overwhelmed me). I’ve been stalking modern trousseau and jlm sites – love the style of both designers. My problem is that I love almost all the gowns I’ve tried, but these are my 3 favorites:
Modern Trousseau Poppy
Modern Trousseau Riley
Which do you love? I wish I could post pics of me in the dresses, but pic taking was a no-no at the salon (hate that!). I still have some time before I get hitched, so I may continue the search…please let me know you opinions on the gowns above! Thx!

I can see why you’re having a problem! It’s hard to say without seeing you in them (stupid rules), but here’s what I think.
#1 is very classic. I really like the way it looks.
#2 – I’m less a fan of the material, but the tiers/ruffles are kind of unique and vintagey (or seems that way to me).
#3 seems to combine both. I like that it’s lace, but the tiers give a new take on the lace wedding dress look.
What do you like about each dress? Was one more comfortable than the others?

I really don’t like number 2, it looks like a someone bought a plain dress and sewed on ruffles to add some interest. Out of the other two I think I prefer #3, I like the way the lace scallops on the skirt.

Welcome to the bee! 🙂
I like #1 and #3.
Did any of these dresses make you feel amazing? Or did all of them give you that great feeling?

@atalante: Thx for the feedback! #1 fit was ah-mazing! I seriously had an outer body experience when I looked in the mirror. and the lace was just gorgeous! #2 I love bc it is soo unique…never seen another briide in it. It’s fit was very similar to #1 (fitted ontop and poofy bottom) and the fabric looks better in person. each ruffle is organza and the bodice is silk-satin. #3 was beautiful too (loved the layering effect) but the fit wasn’t my favorite (it’s more of a modified a-line than trumpet). The only drawback of 1 is that it’s about 2,500 more than the others…

Hmm. Is the fit of #3 something you could change in alterations?

@atalante: good point…wondering if I could make it slightly narrower around thigh for a more fit and flare shape
