    Loving the first dress. The other is nice too- but the first is just more my style. 🙂

    I love the lace and tulle dress! It’s gorgeous and it looks amazing on you, so I voted for that one.  However, you also look beautiful in the second dress. If you have already committed to the second dress and cannot exchange it, I think you’ll still look fabulous on your wedding day.  However, if you still can choose without losing any deposits, I would choose the lace dress.

    I love the lace dress, but both look stunning on you.  I’m a bit confused, have you purchased one of these?

    I really love the second dress on you – and I’m a lace dress kind of girl! The contrast between the bodice and the satin is really beautiful and the draping looks great on you. I think it makes your figure look amazing! The lace dress is pretty but I don’t think it does as much to show off your shape (I think all the tulle takes the focus away), and I’m not sure how it would look bustled. You’ll be beautiful either way!

    I love the first dress. The second one is ok, but there is no contest between the two IMO.

    @raisedonrobbery:  That’s great that you can exchange the dress!! If so, I would do that.  Here are some reasons:

    * The bow on the satin dress seems to overwhelm the dress not only from the front but also from the profile view.

    * I’m sure you plan to bustle the satin gown for your reception. However, it looks as if you have quite a bit of heavy fabric to drag around until then.  You likely will feel more as if you’re floating around in the tulle gown.

    * The tulle gown has dimension and texture, but the overall design is cohesive and the overall presenation is very etheral, beautiful, and bridal. The satin gown has a lot of texture going on, along with the juxtaposition of the very different top and skirt.  

    All that said, you have a fabulous figure and look smashing in both dresses. So, if you do decide to keep your current dress, you’re going to look amazing. I just think that you’re going to like the look of the other dress better in your pics.

    Both dresses are gorgeous, and I’m more a satin than lace person, but that lace dress looks amazing on you!  You look great in both dresses, but the lace one really impresses! What have you previously envisioned yourself wearing?

    They are both beautiful!  Normally I prefer satin over lace, but I picked the lace dress– it looks amazing!

    Okay, here’s my take on it —

    In the 2nd dress, you look like a romantic, sweet, down to earth bride. You are wearing a beautiful dress and have a timeless look about you.

    In the 1st dress, you look like a center-of-attention, all-eyes-on-you bride. You are full of life, exhuberant, experiencing flights of fancy, on top of the world.

    I think you should imagine how YOU want to look and feel on your wedding day, and then you should choose the dress that most embodies that for you. I think you should also try really hard to remember that it’s an incredibly special day no matter which dress you wear, and therefore there’s no “wrong” choice.

    (I did vote for the second dress, because it’s so romantic in a vintage sort of way.)
