    I think the Lorie is much nicer, and much more flattering on your body 🙂 It will look great!

    I understand that you feel self conscious about your stomach (honestly it looks ok and you still have plenty of time before the wedding if you did want to lose weight) but I much prefer the Lorie. I’m not a fan of the back of the second dress or the fabric. The Lorie looks really classy on you.

    I actually think the Lorie is more flattering. On the second dress, I’m not a fan of the detailing cutting across the widest part of the hips. I also think the Lorie has a beautiful train – I like that it flows and pools behind you instead of being bunched up.

    I’m sure that by a more “traumatic” train you meant more dramatic, hehehe;)

    I agree with the PPs. I think that dress 1 is more flattering to your figure and looks elegant and more sophisticated. The fabric and details on dress 2 just don’t look as high quality as dress 1. I’ve also never felt that ruching really conceals anything since it’s extra fabric, so to my eye it makes things look bigger and like you’re trying to hide something that I wouldn’t have otherwise noticed. All of the extra details on dress 2 compete for my eye whereas my eye notices you in dress 1! It looks great on you!

    @SmangieBee:  I prefer the Lorie on you. I don’t feel like it accentuates your tummy area at all, and conversely I don’t think the second dress is necessarily more flattering. The Lorie is much more my style I guess, I think it’s elegant and romantic whereas I feel like the second dress has too much going on. I think your waist will look teeny when you add the sash to the Lorie. Besides, you have a few more months yet to shed some more weight if you want to – although I think you look just lovely in the Lorie now.

    I like the first one a lot more. I also think it looks more flattering on you. Maybe add a blingy belt? 

    The second one is very busy, and its really not my personal style.

    I agree with everyone else… Lori is your girl! The Rebecca actually makes you look wider– I think it’s that detailing at the hip. If, by chance, you end up going with Rebecca, I’d ditch the belt. It’s WAY too much with all the other stuff going on everywhere on that dress! It would look lovely with Lori, I think.

    The Lorie looks fantastic on you and shows off your body where the other one kind if just a whole lot of volume. Lace flatters you nicely! But I have a confession to make…. I’m a Lorie bride too so I’m bias!  Yayyy! Another lorie bride!  i felt the same way about the train :(. But i got over it quickly. You look fantastic!!!! I think I remember you from the lorie board right?
