    The first dress pictured.

    The trumpet does nothing for your figure.

    slemchuk :  Hey, are the pics in the right order? They don’t seem to match their description?

    The poufier dress is gorgeous but I feel the trumpet fits your venue better. You have posted a lot of negatives about the trumpet though, ultimately on the day would you be wishing you were in the other dress?

    I think you have the order backwards on your descriptions.  Might want to fix that because you’ll probably get misleading results this way.

    I’m sorry since I know you already own the trumpet, but the first one / poofy one looks AMAZING on you!!!  So good.  It makes the trumpet look just “meh” in comparison.  It’s a very nice dress too, but that first one is killer.

    slemchuk : Dress 2 looks like the trumpet to me. I prefer dress 1 on you. Even though dress 2 is tighter fitting to your body it doesn’t give you a much shape as dress 1 does.

    slemchuk :  how much will it stretch the budget to get the second dress? With the amount of alterations described I don’t think you can budget on being able to re-sell the first dress. Can you go for cheaper centrepieces or balance it that way? If you can afford both you take the trumpet to wear in the evening as a second dress if you still wanted to get some wear out of it?

    Love the poofy dress!! It’s so flattering on you and the ruffles in the skirt fall so nicely like a waterfall. Very dreamy. Also the beading on the bodice is GORGEOUS, almost looks like fish scales which would really tie in to your beach wedding!

    The Bodice on the Pouffier one is AMAZING on you!!! The skirt give you a beautiful silhouette! 

    The trumpet lace dress is just plane in comparison
