I love the first one!
I love the first one!
I voted for the second one, the bottom of the first one it too overwhelming with your tiny body! Out of curiosity, are you set on having something fitted through the hips? I would love to see what something more A line would look like on you.
You look AMAAAAZING in the Judd Waddell gown and it is absolutely gorgeous!!! Although the first dress is beautiful in its own right, I do not believe it is the right dress for you. The proportions do not seem to work as well, especially since you will lose three inches off of the skirt or will have to fundamentally alter the proportion of the gown. That is not an issue at all with the JW dress, and, frankly, I think it is the one with the greatest WOW factor. Clearly, not everyone could wear that gown, and it looks as if it were MADE for you!!
ETA: I also wanted to note that the Judd Waddell gown is more timeless. You will look glamorous in your wedding pics for the rest of your life and through the rest of your future great grandchildren’s lives etc. in that gown! 🙂
They’re both pretty, but I like #1 better!
@Brielle: Thank you for your input! I actually wouldn’t be losing 3 inches off the skirt of the first gown, but rather the skirt will be raised 3 inches. So basically the skirt will start it’s flare at my mid thigh, rather than at my knee shown in the picture. The gown that I have on is regular length, but it also comes in custom fit (raised the 3 inches) for shorter girls like myself (I’m only 5’1). I agree the Judd Waddell is way more timeless. AHH such a tough decision! I haven’t stopped thinking about both of these gowns since I’ve tried them on and my mind has yet to sway either way =/
@Liz0808: Lol I see how it can remind you of that!
@Tigrrlily04: I actually haven’t tried on an A-line but I have always been set on something more fitted (fiance also likes it more fitted). The only other type I’ve tried on is a ball gown which was definately overwhelming on my body type.
Honestly, #1 is not great for your figure. #2 is amazing!!! LOVE IT
My vote is for the VW 110%! To me, the Judd Waddell gown (while it is very beautiful and looks great on your figure) is extremely forgetable. I feel like it is only a slight variation on gowns I have seen on tons of girls over the years. The VW is WOW on you!
I’m shocked at the poll results! You would look great in anything but I think the first dress looks much more special and fabulous. I also think the two dresses have a different feel – the 2nd one to me is more evening/winter vibe and the first one is more summery, light, romantic… so my input would also depend on what vibe you are going for. But just looking at the two dresses in and of themselves I’d definitely vote for the first.
I think the Judd Wadell is gorgeous. The first one is nice and you have a great body so you look great in both, but the Judd Wadell is more elegant looking and I just like it. That is my vote.
I am not a fan of the first, it’s overdone and even a little plain to me. I love the shape of the second one and the material/buttons/all of it are amazing on you!
LOVE the Vera! Have you tried it with a belt? The back of Judd makes your butt look weird, which takes the focus away from you.
Get the VERA!!!! Its AMAZING!
@txbridetobe2013: Well, if the flare starts at your mid thigh vs. the knee where it is now, that probably would resolve the proportion concerns I had about the Vera Wang. As pps have noted, they both are gorgeous dresses, so, whatever you decide, you are going to look stunning!
I always give this piece of advice to brides who have two options that they are having trouble deciding between. I don’t know if it will help you or not, since you love both of these dresses so much and they are so very different. However, what I tell them is that, although you could easily love wearing either of these dresses, which one — if you do NOT choose it — will you comletely regret NOT wearing? In other words, you obviously could “live with” either and love it. But, which dress do you REALLY NOT want to be without? If you are able to answer that, I think you’ll find your anwer.
I wish you the best with your decision! 🙂
I have been soooo tempted to show my fiance so he could help me with my decision but I have held back! I’m pretty sure he’d go for #2! He’s not a fan of a busy bottom..
