Because I am the type of person to think a decision out a million times.. I need some help, a couple opinions.
From the first trip dress shopping I have had plenty of options and changes of opinion myself.. now I am down to two dresses. I want to see what you ladies think is better..
Or the bow dress?
I have been shopping for a dress since I got engaged, I know everyone has been saying to wait and that I’m too far out date wise. But I’m the type of person that needs almost all that time to decide. So that being said, yes I do already know some of you will say it’s too early, but just give me your opinion. It may help me decide..
I’m almost positive my issue of picking a dress stems from the pricing. The prices are both in the budget my family has set for me. But the Vera is a little over a grand and the bow dress is under five hundred.. I can’t imagine spending a grand on a dress I will wear once… Anyone else have this issue?

I’ve never seen the bow dress paired with a pink sash and I absolutely love it. Can you describe your venue/theme/feel of your wedding? That might help make a more informed decision 🙂

@sunshine_kar: Our venue is an old farm house, we will be married outside under a rustic wooden structure thing (sorry not sure how to describe it exactly lol), and the theme is blush rustic. Our colors are blush pink and gray.

They both look great on you! The bow dress is half as much?
Honestly, I think it depends on the feel you ar going for for you wedding.
The Vera would be great in a very formal regal setting
The Bow Dress would look great for something more like a garden wedding

My only concern with the bow dress is that I am already a young bride, I don’t want to make myself look even younger.. That dress I feel makes me look young.

@DunnToBe1025: I love the bow dress on you, and I think it’s modern and fresh, not young. It’s really charming and I’ve never seen it before. Hope that helps! They are both lovlug, so you can’t go wrong.

The bow is much more flattering on you.

Whoops, just read your update.
If you love the dress, you could dump the bow and use a nice blingy sash instead.

I think the bow dress is more flattering, and also more suitable for your venue. It’s whimsical and romantic and fresh (which I think is different to looking ‘young’).

Both are beautiful, but Bow is amazing on you!

Maybe that’s another issue I have, I can never seem to figure out why the bow dress is the most flattering.. I feel like it covers everything up so much that no shape is seen. Maybe I just can’t see it different..

While I don’t completely hate either dress, I think you can do better.
I think the low-ish rounded waistline of the VW and the extra poofy skirt emphasises the tummy and makes your hips look bigger. Those same features make your waist look tiny, so there’s an upside.
The bow dress is overall more flattering, but there’s something off about it. For me, it’s the way that it flows from the empire line position rather than the natural waist – it’s like the bow is needed to define the waist. It makes you look slimmer because it’s basically a-line in shape and there are a lot of vertical lines, but it doesn’t really show off your waist because it doesn’t define it as well.
I would still prefer to see you in a genuine natural waist ballgown. You have a defined waisst so you can pull off that look. Like these DB ones:
