- Wedding: June 2018 - Tizer Gardens/Carroll College
i know we’ve seen this a million times before. Bride finds perfect dress, decides to go dress shopping one last time, falls in love with a second perfect dress.
First up, we have a sweetheart bridal dress. This was the first dress I tried on, and I loved that this was tight to my body, and fell off my belly in a flattering way compared to anything else. it is the perfect amount of sexy and modest, and I feel like it looks just as great on me as it does on the model pictures. If I could change one thing, it would be that the skirt would be poofy and organza, but that is my forever love, and not the reality of the dress
Next up is a maggie sottero dress, like when I saw the sweetheart dress, I gave an audible gasp. It has the flowy skirt I have always dreamed of, and the corset inside helped cover a lot of sins that other big ball gowns never did before (particularly for a dress that was a size or two too small). There isn’t any lace – which I don’t really care for on the daily basis, but on ththe sweetheart dress I adore. With the illusion neck line above, it halfway carries off the boat neckline I’ve always wanted. The back comes up high enough to also take care of a body concern I have. I feel like I’m going to have to add some kind of modesty panel in the middle though.

You are beautiful! I like the look of the first one better, personally, and think it flatters you really nicely.

You look beautiful in both! I chose the first in the poll, but whichever you choose will be wonderful. My advice? Choose based on how you feel when you’re in each dress, not based on how you think they look on you or how you think they make you look.

I love the beading on the second!

I picked the first, but I think they both look lovely on you.

They both look great so you can’t go wrong with either, but I prefer the first just a bit more.

I much prefer the Maggie. It really looks great on you. To me that’s like the ultimate bridal gown. Each to their own but I don’t think I could go past that one.

I much prefer the first dress. It is extremely flattering to your figure. In my opinion, the illusion neckline on the second dress is not nearly as flattering.

They both look gorgeous on you! I like the neckline in the first one! and I like the skirt on the 2nd dress!

I was looking at the pictures of the second dress and couldn’t believe that it is from the same place I got my gown from! I tried on this dress also, and it was a top contender! It looks awesome on you!

I like the second dress on you better. The first dress looks grandmotherly to me, but that’s my own personal opinion. I think the second dress is very flattering on you!

1. I love the second one, it looks so bridal and elegant on you. The sweetheart + boat neckline combo is gorgeous!
2. If you’re heart is set on the frist dress, consider a petticoat underneath to puff out the skirt to achieve that volume you were after.
Best of luck!

I like both but I voted for #2 because it’s more forgiving around the lower abdomen area

2 is better simply because it looks better (more flowy, less tight) around the stomach.
