One of these dresses was a dream dress I saw online and thought I couldn’t afford. The other was one I fell in love with when I needed to find a cheaper alternative but still wanted the same look. The expensive one it turns out at this bridal boutique i went to today… is pretty close to my budget so I’m definitely considering it (so don’t consider cost a factor here!). They are really similar.. which is why it’s so hard to choose 🙁 I’m glad the one is now in my price range, but it’s making it hard to decide!
After I get some votes, I’ll tell you designer/style/prices 🙂
ETA: The sash doesn’t come with the dress and I’m not really interested in a sash but would consider it– so don’t let that sway you! That veil is my mom’s I’m considering wearing.

I think the sweetheart neckline is way more flattering and I like the ribbon belt on that one, so #2!

Personally, I prefer the top one, but they’re both beautiful!

I always thought I wanted a sweetheart… but I love the neckline on both! And yeah, the sash was just added to appease my mother haha. It’s so hard to decide 🙁

@lindsay3452: Let me get a few more votes then I’ll share! I don’t want it influencing 🙂

I like 1 best overall because the shape is dramatic and beautiful, but the sweetheart neckline of 2 is probably slightly nicer than the straight neckline of 1.

@cece_intheuk: I suppose that could be easier altered on dress 1!

#1 is way prettier/better-constructed (esp. once it’s actually in your size and altered to show off your figure).

Number one, with a sweetheart neckline.

Okay everyone, a few more hints/information to see if it sways things. Number one is $1650 and I could get it H2H for $125 extra (which for me is 52.5 inches because I am very petite) and number 2 is $1230, I could get it in 55 inch H2H for no charge so it would need a little alteration still in the length.

#2 Definitely! The sweetheart top & fit and flare is 100% more flattering on you. I feel like #1 is too dramatic at the bottom and leaves more to be desired for the rest of the dress.
