    I vote Vera for three reasons

    1. The Vera is simply stunning on you; your figure in that dress. . . just WOW
    2. The Vera dress is more suited to your described theme in my mind. I picture it in my head and the Galina seems out of place. Vera’s organic lines; the bias-cut flanges; the single-shoulder strap and the side buttons of that dress. . . it just flows better with a brick building and artsy theme in my head. Of course, that’s all personal opinion.
    3. I’m a VW bride just getting over the dress regret and seeing the error of my ways. As another bee said to me in my dress regret thread “You chose that (first) dress for a reason. You must’ve loved it.

    While I know the second dress is exceptionally popular here, all I can see is tulle vaginas on the bottom. The first one is quite lovely, however.

    @BisBeanBrien:  Well, I guess that if you chose the Vera solely based on budget. . . that changes things >o<;; lol. If it helps, I also blindly went to my dress shoppings concerned more about the monetary situation than my actual liking of certain dress details. That is, until someone put me in the flange-detailed Juliette by Maggie. After that, I knew I wanted flanges EVARYWHARES on my dress. . . which led me to my Vera from DB lol. Long story short. . . you look fab in the Vera and yeah. . .I’m rambling

    @BisBeanBrien:  I love them both on you! I love the VW the best thou! Since you have them both as pps have mentioned wear one for the ceremony and 1 for the reception.

    My vote is VW for ceremony and the Galina for the reception and I think that would be easier to sit and dance in!

    I voted for #2 – it is STUNNING on you, love love love love love it. 

    Honestly go with your gut OR since you own both – wear both!  But I don’t think I could take that VW off…it’s making me second guess my dress!

    Dress 1. Dress 2 looks like the maker was drunk when they assembled it.

    i voted for VW

    while they’re both very pretty and look to be made just for you, the material/ construction of the VW is clearly a better quality.

    I fear that the Galina will not photograph as well as the material is clearly thinner (as shown by the ripples, gathering in certain spots) — not sure if that will be fix-able with alterations or special undergarments

    @BisBeanBrien:  I hope it works out for you, too. Im sure that you’ll be able to sell the Galina relatively easy since it’s been unaltered as you mentioned. If you decide to let go of the Vera, then it’ll probably sell quickly enough as well since it’s Vera.

    The bottom of dress 2 reminds me of paper flowers I used to make when I was a kid.  Plus, it’s also one of those dresses that you would look back on in 20 years and say “what was I thinking?”.  Dress 1 is a classic and would be my choice.

    Its hard to vote.  To be honest, I’m not a fan of Vera Wang.  I know, I could be lynched for that.  However, the VW looks really amazing on you… and so does the first dress.  I originally voted for dress 1, but after hearing about the details of you wedding the VW might actually be the better choice.  So…. voted one way, writing with a change of vote here.
