Hi, bees! So, I’m really not even close to saying yes to a dress, but dress pics never hurt anyone. 🙂
I did take my first shopping trip to see which style works best for me and to start getting an idea. At the end of the day, I feel like I was majorly leaning toward one, which is not at all what I had been imagining for myself. Just to keep it unbiased, I won’t tell you which one it is.
I will say that in a fit-n-flare I felt gorgeous, and in an a-line (looks more ballgown in the photo than it is IRL) I felt like a bride.

I love the first one – I feel like it’s much more flattering

Love the first one on you…. It defines your waist and much more flattering!

I like the shape of the first one, but I don’t like shiny satin.

I love the first one. I like A-line or ball gowns shapes. Yet, I’m not a fan of shiny satin, i prefer organza or tulle.

You guys were right on the money – I much prefer the shape of the first one on me. I’ll be on the hunt for something similar, which is why it’s so strange — I’ve always imagined something very vintage; didn’t think I’d feel that way in something so traditional.

Agreed – the first one, all the way! It’s much more flattering.

Definitely first one. Gorgeous shape on you!
However, if you still think you’d like the mermaid shape, I would try and find something a similar shape as the top of the ballgown-y dress and then maybe some ruching or ruffled detail on the hips.
It’s actually the lace I’m not crazy about in the second dress and not necessarily the shape! Plus, it looks like it’s too big on you. If it fit you properly, you might like it more!

I like the first one better, but I think you should also keep looking regardless. Just to be sure you’re getting what you want.
ETA: I think the poll results are scewed because they are listed in opposite order as your pics.

the first one hands down!
