So with only 2 appointments and about 10 dresses later, I have narrowed it down to 2 dresses..the ever so popular Sottero and Midgley – Adorae…. and the very similar Maggie Sottero – Dakota. I can’t decide which I love more! Both are very similar, here are my pros and cons of each.
– Pro: Visually more elegant due to the thick band of bling, the bubblehem….and it looks better in picture
– Con: The cost of the dress itself ~$1200, the cost to bustle that train (I’d want the train for pictures but want to bustle it so I can walk!), and the dress is pretty heavy (compared to Dakota)
– Pro: I like the bead drop thing at the neckline, it’s lighter and I felt more comfortable in it, and the price! ~$850
– Con: It doesn’t look as elegant as the Adorae

I prefer you in the first dress. However, if you feel more comfortable in the second I might go with that. I think it would look better once the bust actually fits you.

I actually love the second dress on you! And I think it is super flattering, and I really love it’s detailingon the bust much better!

i like the second one! i think the detailing is gorgeous! and i can say i haven’t seen it before… where i’ve seen the adorae a MILLION times.

I like #2. Personally, I would choose comfort over fancy-ness. I also am not a huge fan of the Adorae. I also think the detail along the neckline on the Dakota is prettier than the ‘thick’ band on the waist on the Adorae.

I actually prefer the neckline/bodice of the Dakota over the heavy belt of the Adorae.
And if they both look that amazing on you and all the real pros are the Dakota’s side I think the choice is easy. But then I’m not making it 🙂

I love the Adore on you. I love the ornamentation and the bubble hem. Sure it cost more but will you have dress regret going w/ the the simpler Dakota?

Go for comfort! Trust me, the day would have been much different if I wasn’t comfy!
#2 looks great on you!

Counting your pros and cons I voted Dakota. You have 3 pros for each dress so they cancel each other out. However you have 3 cons for Adorae and only one con for Dakota.

Thanks for all the advice and opinions thus far!! Here’s one more pic of the Adorae….trying on dresses for the first time was such an overwhelming experience I felt I didn’t take good enough pics. I have one more stop this Friday… (David’s Bridal….yea but you never know!!)….I have a feeling it’ll still be down to these 2, I’d definitely have to go try it on again!

I like number one. But I am WAY over budget already so it might be smarter to go with two

I love the adore but I’m not gonna lie I’m sooo sick of it. The second takes it for me, and not because I’m bored of the adore but I really do think it’s lovely.

i’m with other people and kinda tired of seeing the adore, I think dress 2 is more flattering on you anyways.
