    I was going to vote for the Casablanca until I saw your info on your body type.  I think the Ophelia would be much better for your figure.  The Casablance might overwhelm you.  Do you have pictures of you in the dresses?

    Based on your posts, it sounds like your heart is set on the Ophelia which I personally think would be gorgeous on you! Score points with your Future Mother-In-Law somewhere else 🙂

    I say if you’re torn on if the Ophelia is your wedding dress, keep looking! You got “that feeling” with the Casablanca, so maybe you can find another dress that has the convenient alterations AND “that feeling”. No need to get worried about finding a dress yet! You have plenty of time.

    i really like the ophelia – it’s such a unique silhouette and as another petite bride (5’1”) i think it will definitely be more flattering on your figure and probably require less alteration.

    I think the casablanca would give you curves if that is what you are looking for.  They are both beautiful, so you can’t go wrong with either.

    I like Casablanca out of the 2 of those dresses.

    I like the first one. It’s so different and I love that it would fit your body shape. I like dresses that aren’t so common (if you’re one of the lucky ones that can pull it off!)

    I love CB dresses and if you felt like a bride when you put it on, I think you should go with the CB.  The Ophelia is very pretty but if you don’t feel like a bride then what’s the point.

    The Ophelia is dreamy–so unique and beautiful, a truly memorable dress.  Could you not at all feel like a bride in it?  Do you love it less now that you found the Casablanca?  The Casablanca, if I’m being honest, seems like a very generic wedding dress to me, so of course you will feel like a typical bride in it.  But do you want to feel like a typical bride or you AS a bride?

    It sounds to me if both dresses were ‘easy’ in terms of the alterations you would choose the Casablanca.  Go with what YOU love best, it’ll all work out!

    The Ophelia is stunning and unique.  The Casablanca isn’t as unique.  I think for your body type, the Ophelia would be fantastic.  Go with your gut instinct and what you’ve pictured all along!
