Hi all! I’m torn between two dresses and was hoping the internet could help 🙂 I really do love them both! thanks for your help!!
The first is a lace and organza one. I love it, but don’t want to look too antique-ey – I’m not sure if it does. I’d probably change the belt.
Unfortunately, I don’t have a picture of the second dress, since the salon won’t let me take them (boo!) It is the Maggie Sottero primrose – there is another thread about it here: http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/maggie-sottero-primrose-has-anyone-tried-this-dress-on#axzz2tXjiQ5Ci. I definitely feel like it’s more “fun” and more modern, but I also worry it’s too trendy.

I like the second one better. I love last and calssy dresses, but I also like modern and although the second is modern it’s still classy. It’s not at all a non traditional wedding dress. Try finding it at another store and try it on there, maybe they will lt you take a photo.

I think you would look great in both (and I’m biased toward the primrose because i’ve been looking at it as well). These are very different dresses. the theme of you wedding probably would be the deciding factor. Are you having a rustic chic wedding? (if so lace-organza) or a modern art deco type wedding? (if so primrose). Either way, you’ll look beautiful in both on your big day!

@xxallurebridexx: She says the salon will not let her take photos of her in it.
@sftochi: I am not a fan of other. I do not like the way the lace is spaced out on the skirt of the first. However, you can definitely rock the 2nd, it looks like. So if you like it, go for it!

@MrsUPS: I meant for her to go to a different store and try it on there. Maybe the other store would allow photos.

@mrsaxachef: Totally agree with the wedding theme, really important for the dress. The first dress would be more fitting for a rustic wedding. But both can go either way. Both very gorgeous.

@xxallurebridexx: Oh, since your original message (before you edited it) said “DO you have another photo of you in it?” you can see where I might have misunderstood.

Thanks for all the feedback! It is more of a modern/urban feel, so perhaps the Primrose is the way to go. I’ll see whether another salon allows photos 🙂

I love the first one. The second one is nice too, but like you said it looks really trendy to me.

The 1st looks great on you! 2nd is STUNNING but would be helpful to see it on you….

I think both are really beautiful dresses and I don’t think you can go wrong with either one. For me, it would be about which one I felt more beautiful in and which one goes with the venue and theme best. Whichever one you choose you can be confident that it is a beautiful dress.

I see that your poll results are 50/50! I voted for the first one, but I have always loved textured skirts! I think it really would depend on your venue and feel of the wedding. Also, which one is more comfortable? Are you able to move and dance in the primrose?

The first one is much, much better 🙂

I voted for the second one as it fits your theme more; also the lace panels of the first one look odd to me.
Even though there wasn’t a photo, I think the ruching etc would make it a flattering dress on most people, so I think the only way it wouldn’t suit you would be if you’re really short.
But if you think #1 is too vintage and #2 is too trendy, maybe neither of them are it? Maybe you should pick something that fits between the two – sexy and “modern classic” rather than vintage or overly trendy?
For example this Mori Lee dress is quite popular on here and flattering on a lot of people:
this Essense dress is similar:
also Essense, and In My Humble Opinion a bit less trendy than ruffles/flanges
Stella York – again, probably a slightly more classic style than flanges:
Maggie Sottero – a bit lacy, but not as vintage-looking

LOVE the second dress. It’s so fun! The lace dress is “nice”, but doesn’t wow me at all… It looks conservative and plain to me (not all lace dresses are like this but this one in particular strikes me as “meh”).
