I absolutely love it!  I actually think you look better in the dress than the model does.  It’s just STUNNING on you!

I think it looks great on you and agree with all the things you like about it. I also like it more than the BHLDN dress you posted, I think it is the length and the train detail. The ONLY thing that is keeping me from being 100% about this is the front of it. Im modest myself and love a modest bride…but I like the deep V. I feel if you close it up, it will lose some of its character? If that makes sense. Other than that GORGEOUSSS๐Ÿ™‚

I think you look fabulous, deep V and all! It still looks very classy IMO (you certainly aren’t showing too much skin), but, like PP said, go with what you feel comfortable with.

I think this dress is gorgeous! But I do see what you mean about it being a little clingy. Luckily for you, you don’t have anything to hide! I think with alterations it will be great though!

Okay so I LOVE both your dresses and considered both but we had a Caribbean wedding and I ultimately could not get lace out of my head ๐Ÿ™‚

Loved the vintage feel which was the tone of our day and BHLDN is amazing for that!

I think that the one you have would be amazing with a statement necklace but I seriously drool over BHLDN. My bridesmaid dresses were from BHLDN and they were great to work with and beautiful quality.

I can’t lie, I love the BHLDN dress. However the dress you posted is very flattering on you. The sheen and the train make it more “bridal”.

Somthing to consider is the train – it looks gorgeous – love that silk! But you will almost certainly need to bustle it at some point, just another point to consider…..you’ve got two gorgeous dresses to choose from!

I’m honestly not a huge fan of that layer of chiffon or whatever on the train.  It looks out of place to me.  That said, the dress itself is gorgeous on you.  I don’t think you need to close up the neckline at all- a good set of cups sewn in and some carpet tape should hold you secure all night.  And if you’re worried about clinginess, a thin silk slip should take care of any major VPL issues or anything… And you don’t look like you have anything unflattering for it to cling to other than potential VPL, honestly!

I think it’s beautiful on you! I also think it’s a more elegant dress than the BHLDN one, which kind of reminds me of a robe.
