If you want to wear both, then wear both! The ballgown looks amazing on you, btw!  There is no rule that says you can only wear one dress for your wedding… It’s your wedding, do what you wish.  In many cultures, like mine, it’s actually customary to wear at least two (one ceremony, one reception).

I’m not a big fan of the pnina on you, but it’s very pretty.  I think you look stunning in your 2nd dress and you should just be princess for the day!! 🙂

Well since you have both, wear both if you want to!

I actually love the DB dress.  If it were me, I would just wear that one, but of course, wear both if you want to!

I am not always a fan of some DB dresses, but I love that DB ball gown on you!!

I usually love Pnina’s gowns (except the risque looking ones, that is), but I have to be honest. I would NOT change out of that beautiful ball gown and into that Pnina for your reception. That may BE a Pnina, but it doesn’t have much Pnina “Pizzaz.”

What I WOULD do, however, is possibly have the Pnina cut off and made into an adorable short dress and possibly add some straps and maybe wear it to your shower or rehearsal and rehearsal dinner. And, if the worn or dirty parts are too obvious, you may even be able to have it dyed a bit darker ivory or cream color.  Just a thought.

Yes, the more formal gown makes you look exquisite.  The fabric is richer and the color makes your skin like a porcelain doll.  Why don’t you change to the more streamline dress after dinner and do change hair, accessories and use more modern jewelry.  But, for the ceremony, the 2nd dress is the charmer.  Good luck!

Both look gorgeous on you, but Im a fan of lace style, so I’d say the #1 one more charm for me.

I’m going to go against the grain here – I think that you look stunning in your original dress – to me your gorgeous hourglass figure is lost in the ballgown (though that’s not to say you don’t look lovely!).  Are you planning on restoring the first one anyway?  If so, I would hold off making a decision until you know how the repairs have turned out…

I love that ball gown on you so much. I don’t see anything wrong with wearing both if you love both, though!

The Pnina looks AMAZING on you! The dress’ cut, color and texture all look like they were made for you. I’m indifferent about the DB dress.
