LOVE this idea! I think either one will work (it depends on if you want sexy glamour or more of a red carpet bridal). BUT the first one sounds perfect for a NYE party!


The first one that you described reminds me of the Casablanca 1975, which another Bee is wearing and she looks a-MAH-zing. 

If you go with the second style, I say YES for the slit because the silhouette is a lot more conservative/modest than the first. Maybe the slit can be a little more to the side, though? Really, I like it either way.

I vote for the second one, because I think it’s a bit more different than the rose dresses. But they’re both gorgeous!

All are gorgeous! I love open back, so my vote is for the black style (in ivory).

@minted:  That’s the frustrating part, isn’t it? If you do find a dress with a slit that you love, you might also consider wearing a cowl neck bolero backwards to get that look Jessica Biel has (without having to alter it like crazy). 


I also found a couple more gowns you might like:

Pronovias Spring 2012 ($6,500)


Ines di Santo Spring 2012 ($5,200)
