    If I may be completely honest, I don’t think either of these are your dress.  The PoB is closer to your theme/venue/feel, but the Sophia has WAY too much going on for my tastes.  I feel like it swallows you up.  You have a great figure and I definitely think a fit and flare is where you should be, but just not this particular one.  Good luck!

    They are both great and so totally different. I think you should go with whatever it is you want to go with and will make you most happy. Of course you have to take into account the added expense of a different dress. Would you be willing to sell it afterwards? Recouping some of your money may help make the decision easier.

    The second one is more a a “traditional” wedding dress, but that doesnt mean its better. You have to love what you are wearing. Dresses are really personal decisions.

    I chose number 2, I love how it shows your figure.

     

    The top of number 1 is nice as well but I feel its the wrong dress for you. Not as flattering…

    Personally, I much prefer the POB dress. It’s timeless and elegant and really shows off your figure. I agree with KristenGettingMarried about the second dress – it’s a little overwhelming and has a lot going on. But if you like it, that’s all that matters! You’re the one who has to wear it. 🙂

    I don’t think the first one does your figure justice.

    I like the first one more. They both look good on you but I like the first one more!

    I think the 2nd dress looks beautiful on you, and is more flattering than the first dress.

    I like both.  The POB does suit your venue, and not sure if it’s already been fitted, but if not, I would imagine that would make a world of difference.

    BUT, I’m guessing if you love that second dress you want a little more wow factor, and you should get what you want on your wedding day!

    These dresses are SO different, I wonder, like a PP, if they are really want you want?  I remember when I tried on dresses for the first time I totally got swept up in the satiny dresses with lots of bling.  But when I stepped back, I realized I wanted something much more simple. It is possible that the Sophia Tolli dress just looks so bridal that you like it, but isn’t quite you?

    I like #2 better, but there is a LOT going on.  Just make sure you get something you love!

    I like the first one but the 2nd one is more flattering.  However, I don’t think the 2nd one is suited for your venue, though it could and would work if you wanted it to!  You got the 1st one at such a steal that you could sell it and recoup every penny you spent and maybe even make a profit on it if you decide to go with the 2nd one or another one.

    The first one to me is a little blah. It looks great on you, but in another color and chopped at the knee, it could be a sundress.  And I’m not huge on the straps.

    I think the second one is flattering and bridal.  And if you’re worried about too much drama, you could always chop the train down a little bit of off completely.

    So I did a little hunting and tried to find dresses that combined both of the ones you posted (straps, vintage/vineyard, fit and flare) and came up with these:

     

    $360 Impression Destiny 11588:

    Same, 11580:

     

    Mori Lee 1810, $830
