    I think the champagne is far more flattering (and even without pictures, I don’t think it needs the belt).

    I voted for champagne (I’m also partial to champagne).

    You also look happier in that dress and your reasoning for picking that one over the blush makes sense.

    Both dresses are gorgeous. It is a tough choice between the train on the champagne dress and the skirt on the blush dress. Which are you more comfortable in? Are dress price + alterations similar between the two? Is feeling bridal important to you? 

    If it were me, I would opt for fun, twirly skirt. Although, if it’s in the budget, why not find a company that makes tulle skirts and just get yourself one for fun and date nights? – especially if feeling bridal is important to you.

    The champagne one is beautiful one you!

    I’m not a fan of the blush one at all.

    The blush dress is pretty but it doesn’t do your figure any favors and kind of hides your waistline, whereas the champagne one accentuates it and really flatters your shape. I also feel like the strapless and neckline on the champagne one looks better on you, and the blush one makes you look a little…boxy?

    Usually with these polls I really don’t have much preference, but for this one it’s a clear winner for me! 🙂

    The champagne one I’d say.  Good Luck with it all!

    I love both dresses and think you look BEAUTIFUL in both. I selected the champagne because of the reasonings you listed. Cheaper alterations and more bridal. You can wear a fun skirt any time you like and you only get to be a bride once!

    The good news is I think both dresses are stunning on you! Definitely love the first one on you more though. It really flatters your figure. Let us know which one you choose!

    They’re both so pretty, but I love the champagne dress.  It’s a little more “traditional,” I know, but I think the train is just beautiful and I think the color looks amazeballs with your skin and your pretty dark hair.

    getoutofdodge :  i loved the first pic of the champagne, where you have the skirt gathered in your hands – it makes the dress look more fitted through the thighs which emphasizes your curves and give you a lovely silhouette. however, i hated it when you dropped the skirt. it’s just blegh on you. all that is to say that i think you should only consider the champagne dress if you’d alter it to be tighter through the hips and thighs like it looks in the first pic. also, forget the belt idea. it will just cut the dress in half and make you look shorter (and thus wider) as a result. either you have the waist-to-hip ratio to pull off a fitted silhouette, or you don’t. belts don’t magically create waists (and you don’t need one, as I see your waist!)

    the ballgown is also lovely, and looks like a lot of fun. i dont think you can go wrong with either! the ballgown is likely more comfortable (albeit heavier) to move around in all day. are you going to be self-concious in a fitted silhouette? do you want a big puffy skirt to twirl in? or do you want something that shows off your curves?

    Love how the champange dress looks on you! I would add a belt or sash but other than that, I think it’s perfection!!
