    I think if you put a crioline (sp?) under the first dressyou would be alot happier with the look of the first dress!

    Haha, I had to scroll through the pictures several times to be sure they weren’t the same dress! After I was sure, I went back and forth on my preference. They both look great on you, so I would buy the cheaper one!

    they are very similar, but no doubt in my mind the first one is my favourite! I think you are getting in your own head a bit here, it definitely looks bridal and you definitely have the figure to pull it off!

    wow they are very similar dresses!  both very pretty and look great on you – I agree with other posters: try a crinoline and then see how you feel!

    I agree with most of the others–I like the first one! (Though I may be partial, I tried on that Ella Rosa too and it’s one of my tops.)

    But, get the one that YOU like the best! What’s most important is how you feel in it. I wouldn’t worry about either not looking “bridal” because I feel these are both beautiful wedding gowns! Don’t worry too much about sitting, you won’t be doing it for too long ๐Ÿ˜‰

    @Roe: Same here.

    I must say I like the 1st dress, it not being ‘puffy’ doesn’t make it less bridal, but it’s important YOU love it so maybe try what PPs said and get a crinoline.

    Honestly those dresses are so similar I don’t think its worth it. I don’t really see what you mean about the one weird side. The dress is assymetrical but meant to be that way. I like it. And I think you need to go try on your dress you already ordered with a big ol crinoline and you will feel better about it.

    Definitely the first dress.  Although they both do look very similar up to a point, my reaction to the first gown was simply, “Oh my gosh!! She looks AMAZING in that dress!!!”  My reaction to the second one was, “This looks very similar to the first one, but I am focused totally on how the poofy bottom of the dress looks out of place with the top of the gown.  It looks awkward and almost as if it were tacked on.  The first gown just flows so much more nicely.  It presents a total, cohesive package, and it is absolutely perfect for your figure.

    Every bridal shop should have and sell crinoline slips.  However, I think they primarily are added beneath a fuller type of dress, such as a ball gown or A-Line. (I am not positive about this, though, since I did not ever try on a fit-and-flare, trumpet, mermaid or sheath-type wedding gown.)

    I don’t know that adding a crinoline would do anything to enhance the first dress, since it is gorgeous as it is. I would recommend a very long, very sheer veil that extends beyond the length of the dress. This will give you some additional bridal majesty, but it will not hide or compete with your gown. As an example, mine was 120″ long.  It was a Malis Hendersen veil with Swarovski crystals strategically placed along the outer portions of the veil, but there was no visible edge.

    I think the first one flatters your figure…I would keep it!!
