    I love the lace one, it shows off your figure better.

    @mrsdfarrar6714:  I have not read through all the comments, so please forgive me if this is repetitive to what other bees have posted.

    I think the lace one looks phenomenal on you and really shows off your gorgeous figure. The ruffled one is beautiful in it’s own right, but sort of hangs on you and you don’t see your awesome figure. I think if you were to put some layers of tulle under there or a hoop skirt or something to make it a little fuller, it would hold it’s shape better and accenuate your tiny waist more prominently.

    I voted for the lace dress based on the pictures.

    The ruffles are neat, but I don’t feel like a natural waistline does your figure the right credit.

    Both dresses are beautiful on you but the lace dress is gorgeous! It’s so flattering on you and it’s a lovely, timeless look, I think.

    @mrsdfarrar6714:  I remember when you asked us our opinions before you bought the dress.

    If you want me to be honest, I voted for the other (non-lace) dress last time, & I’d do it again. I just think it stands out a lot more.

    But, I remember how much you said you loved the lace one, so that makes it hard..

    Can you go try on the other dress again just to be sure one way or another if you made the wrong choice?

    #1 is definitely a statement. On the upside, it makes your waist/top half look amazing. On the downside, I do find the ruffles really distracting. The lace is lovely on you. If anything, I would say keep the lace dress – or find a third alternative that has that same ballgown silhouette as the first dress, but a less busy skirt.

    @mrsdfarrar6714:  THe lace dress looks great!!  The other one is nice, but I think the lace shows off your great figure.  I voted for the lace dress, the ruffles kind of confuse my eye a bit when I look at it.

    I love both. Seriously. I love ruffles and I think they’re show-stopping, but lace is classic and gorgeous as well. You will look stunning no matter which you choose!

    They are both so different that it’s hard to say! Personally, I am swooning over dress #1, but you look great in your dress!

    The lace one looks classic, the other one looks trendy, like in 20 years you’ll look back at your wedding pics like what was I thinking.

    @mrsdfarrar6714 I normally don’t like ruffles but I LOVE that dress and it looks so great on you. This same thing happened to me. I had dress regret….I originally bought an Allure gown very similar to the one you ordered. I realized that I loved it but it looked just like every other dress you expect to see brides in. I ended up ordering a completely different dress (Katie May Charleston gown). Money is only money and I think you should go with the dress that you love and will feel gorgeous in. It’s your wedding day after all….

    @mrsdfarrar6714:  Those are so different.  Personall I think the first one is horrible, and I’m glad you bought the lace one!  Stick with that!
