    Ballgown I was the same as you when dress shopping, my top 2 dresses were the mermaid and ballgown silhouttes. The ballgown made me feel like a princess. You look stunning in both but the ballgown is gorgeous!

    That is a tough one.  I’m torn between them both.  I love them both equally but if i had to pick one, i’m leaning slightly more towards the ball gown.

    BRbride2O16:  my vote is to ball gown before even seeing pictures. I think mermaid is what you’ve always dreamed of but you really want a ball gown.

    BRbride2O16:  I’m actually not a huge fan of ball gown dresses, but it looks amazing on you!!! I love the neckline and the lace back. I vote ball gown 🙂

    Utlimately, you shouldn’t worry about what anyone else thinks and you should go with the dress YOU feel most beautiful in. If you feel equally beautiful in both, I’d say go with what you think your fiance will like since the day is mainly for the two of you. Good luck, keep us posted on what you choose.

    you look great in both!  But the decision comes down to what you feel most comfortable in and which one you feel the most you.

    i was in the same boat last year between mermaid and ballgown.  i decided to go with the ballgown because it was comfortable, made me feel more me and i really felt like a bride in the ballgown more than the mermaid.

    I am in the same exact boat as you are! I am trying to choose between a Stella York fit and flare and a Justin Alexander tulle ballgown! I also got the same responses as you. Everyone loved the Stella York, but I just felt a bit happier in the ballgown. I feel like I am 90% sure I am going with the ballgown. So with that said, I feel the ballgown is a bit more detailed. The Stella York is more plain. I feel the Stella could use a belt or something and as for the ballgown, i feel it doesn’t really need anything else.

    BRbride2O16:  There’s just something about the way you’re standing into the ballgown that makes that dress for me – I don’t know if you’re more confident or what. Shoulders a little further back, back a little straighter.

    That being said, the mermaid is lovely too – you really couldn’t go wrong. But I voted for the ballgown.

    I’m voting ballgown and I am not even a ballgown person. You look amazing and the fabric on that dress looks really luxurious

    BRbride2O16:  You look fantastic in both. But I voted for the ballgown because it’s more unique. I’ve seen a lot of dresses that look like the first one.

    The first one is really pretty but OMG THAT BALLGOWN IS SOOOOOOOO AMAZING.  The ball gown is the my favorite dress I have seen posted on this site!!!!!!!!

    I had to go look at the pictures of you in the ball gown again because it is so beautiful!!!!!!!!!!!!

    If I didn’t have my dress yet I would be making an appointment to try that dress on ASAP.  That dress is so gorgeous!!!!!!!

    Wow! I wish I looked half as good as you in either of those dresses. You look super hot in the mermaid. But the thing is, you also look super hot in the ballgown! I think that might actually be my favourite ballgown I’ve ever seen. Your cleavage looks awesome and I love the back. 

    <br />I think that normally the compromise between mermaid vs ballgown is “hotness” vs “beautiful bridal-ness” … but your ballgown is honestly the most hot ballgown ever 🙂
