    they are both nice, i think you will have to try them on to see which is better.  But the first one has a trian which gives it more of the bridal feeling.  I vote # 1

    I agree with FutureMrsK– the first one has the most “bridal” look. They are both gorgeous though!

    Of the two, I’d say the spaghetti strap one.

    I like them both; it depends on which suits your figure more.

    The empire waist of the first dress could be really tricky. A-line is one thing but empire waist something else entirely, just make sure this silhouette flatters you.

    I like them both! Tough call, but I don’t think you can go wrong with either.

    I like dress #2 especially if you’re going for a simple look. You can look and be bridal without a train.

    I really love the detailing and flow of the first one. It’s so delicate and beautiful!

    I think both would be appropriate…what is your venue? 

    The V-neck one looks a little more formal and the strapped one looks a little less formal (summery, daytime, outside)

    Great idea.  I did the same, because they all start to look similar after a while.  Whose to say a Maggie Sottero Destinations gown isn’t one of the ones you just posted.  Its all language, marketing, and semantics.

    Both are pretty, but someone here said you need to see how they look on you. 

    Have you looked at Nordstroms, Saks, and Bloomingdales?  Macys?  Nice dept. stores but always have sales and their prices are less than what you would pay for a gown that is similar to what you’re going for.

    Both are lovely, but I’d say keep looking 🙂

    Not my style though, so my vote is keep hunting!
