I have been staring at these dresses for a week now and I just can’t decide and I can’t look at them anymore! What makes it worst is that they are both very different dress styles! I was already given opinions from friends and family but it was a dead split between the two. So I am here, hoping I can get opinions from people who do not know me and give an unbiased opinion.
First Dress is Allure 9501
Second Dress is Allure 9353
If chosen, the dress would come in an Ivory (or very close to it) color. Thank you so much in advance! Any help is very much appreciated! 🙂

Beeeee!! Go try something else on andput this away if you’re stuck. I wish I did the same thing. There’s much to explore!
Also, dress #2 looks like it will be a pain to travel with and will cause you to be quite uncomfortable for summer wedding outside or with no AC. I have a similar style and I’m getting married outside in Texas and I feel soooo stupid right now. I got a reception dress to change into.
Take it from me. Set aside emotions and apply some logic and I think you’ll arrive at a choice you love and feel wonderful in 🙂

I agree with above. If you can’t decide after looking at them for a week, you haven’t found your dress. Go try on a few more. Neither of these jumped out at me as your dress. If I had to pick, I would pick #2, just because the top of #1 kind of looks like lingerie to me.

#1 Is beautiful and I LOVE it, not a fan of #2.
BUT I agree with PP, keep looking, if none of them are JUMPING out to you, then try more on!
Have fun with it.

I love the first dress on you, for sure. If you don’t like that dress in particular I would say keep looking, but in that shape because it’s super flattering on you.

Keep looking, Bee! They are both beautiful dresses on you but when it’s your dress I think you’ll just know!

Unless you got “the feeling” with both of these, keep looking! If nothing else, try some other stuff on and then come back to these. If one of them jumps out at you, thats it!

They’re both gorgeous. I voted for the second one because it’s probably more comfortable without the fitted hips. What’s your wedding theme? You could choose one based on which one matches more. The first one is more boho/modern, the second is more princess/traditional.

I love the first one, and it looks great on you!

What type of wedding are you having? I think you look great in both, honestly! The first is more modern and the second is more traditional. I selected option 2 but only because my taste tends to skew more classic. You can’t go wrong either way!

I lean towards dress 1 but both are lovely. I adore the colour of dress 1 on you. That dress looks light and comfortable. I think it might need something underneath to make the skirt flare out a little more. That will just give it better definition. The lace is divine!

Oh wow bee! I see why you are having such a problem choosing! They are both gorgeous on you! I don’t agree that you will always “feel” something or know it’s the one. Not everyone works that way, so don’t let that stress you out! I feel like if we had more detail about the wedding we could give you a better opinion.

l tend to the keep looking camp too, l’m sorry. The second is more flattering to your waistline, but neither seem ‘the one’ somehow. You look like you could wear most styles and look good, so unless you feel you have to have one of these two…..

The lace in #1 looks like The Scream right below your crotch.

You are all so wonderful! Thank you everyone for your input! This is from my second day of dress shopping and sadly, from where I am from, there is not too many options. But I will definitely keep looking at dresses online and see if my bridal shops have them for me to try on! 🙂 If you have any ideas, I would love to see them!
I love these dresses equally! What’s conflicting is that I have always dreamed that I would be in a big dress, but since trying on dresses, I fell in love with the fitted style too. So it’s a fight between old me and new me basically.
Now here’s the thing. My wedding is going to be in Hawaii. From that statement alone, most people will tell me to definitely go for Dress 1, which by far makes more sense. But this is just one day for a wedding and for the most part, you only do this once, so I wanted to eliminate these factors and look at just the dress itself.
