    @chateau2013:  #2 for sure. Even though it’s the called “more drama” look, it is so much more streamlined than the first (because it has far less going on, which is a great thing). 

    With look #1, all I see is lace and accessories, but you get lost in all of the extras. With look #2, all I see is you, love. πŸ˜€

    @chateau2013:  I can’t pick!  Lol.   Both looks are beautiful πŸ™‚  I love the sash, although I think if it were in the same colour as your dress, it wouldn’t draw the eye so much.  That said, yours is the closest gown to mine I’ve seen on the bee and I LOVE it πŸ™‚  Gives me a better appreciation of what mine’s going to look like when it actually fits me properly and isn’t far too long πŸ˜›

    I prefer the lace veil and jewlery from the first look, but I’m not loving that sash/brooch combo at all. You don’t need anything at the waist IMO.

    I think the 2nd look is more romantic than the first look :)) It looks very clean. I would go for the 2nd look.

    I think 2 does more for your figure. The earrings are great too!

    I prefer the soft romantic look, but of course that is just a personal preference and the direction I am going.

    @chateau2013:  My dress photos are buried in another thread so hope you don’t mind me posting here πŸ™‚ Mine’s more A-line than yours (is yours a trumpet?) but I still think it’s along the same lines πŸ™‚  They’re going to make mine with more of a sweetheart neckline.  It’s going to be made to measure and I just can’t wait to see it made on a smaller scale to fit my 5’2″ height! lol

    I like the first look myself.  I think a necklace would look nice since the dress is strapless and like me you have elongated shoulders (I mean in height not in width…if that makes sense)  I don’t think a necklace would be too much.  Because I feel that I am elongated in this area I opted for straps on my dress and no necklace, but if I didn’t have the straps I would’ve definitely worn a necklace.

    Hope that helps…but I love the pearl earrings in the first option =)

    @chateau2013:  Yay, your dress came in! Glad you are loving it, it’s beautiful and classic on you.

    I much prefer the more drama look. It’s funny, I’ve always loved lace-trim veils in theory but in practice, I almost always prefer a raw-edged veil. I think if you want to incorporate lace, maybe  a lace applique veil (think Vera’s Audrey veil) would be beautiful. But as things stand now, I prefer the raw edge veil by a mile (and also the blingier earrings).
