OK, so one dress from my first poll made it as a finalist, but I also found another dress. Two dresses that I love – I would love to hear what you guys think! Background – garden wedding, outdoor tented reception, I want to look hot and make a statement!
Dress 1 – Picture it with some type of vintage style flower on the waist. The sample was way too small, so I’m holding it together in the back. The size creates stretching and wrinkles that I assume wouldn’t be there when fitted properly. Pros – Simple, sexy, dramatic. Cons – Will this be comfortable outside in late June in Michigan – too hot, too restrictive?
Possible flower (sewn on, minus the ribbon)?
Dress 2 – Pros: Very comfortable and easy to wear, fits great with my garden wedding, I think the flowers make it somewhat unique. Cons: Does it make enough of a statement? The shape feels a little boring.
Looking forward to hearing what you all think!

I love the detailing on dress 2 but I love the way dress 1 fits you. Could you alter dress 2 to be more mermaid?

I’m with the girls, I love #2!

#2 for sure!
#1 has weird and very obvious seams that I don’t care for. It also looks like the fabric on your stomach is shiny, which really draw my eyes to that area, and away from your face.

Dress number 2 looks amazing on you. Definitely dress 2! Also I think dress 2 is much more of a statement dress than the first one.

Thanks everyone for the honest feedback! I’m so surprised… I thought #1 would win, haha. I was leaning towards #1, but I’m going to re-evaluate, since #2 is clearly the favorite, and I think my dress perceptions are all screwed up after trying on soooo many.

I like the second dress better!

The shape on both of these are almost similar, 1 is more fitted and number 2 is slightly more a line. I LOVE the shape of #1 , looks great on you! There is just something about the flowers on that second one that have so much detail it pulled me to it!! so I voted #2! But get what YOU love! if the first one suits you more go with it!! Its your day , please yourself!! and don’t have any regrets!! They are both gorgeous though!

@jamieynn_109: haha well i was one of the lone people who chose #1, so i’ll give my input! i think in the right size it would look amazing and i think the flowers would be a cute touch! your butt looks awesome and i’m actually a fan of the seams/structure.
i think i’d like the 2nd one better if the flowers went to the edge on the bottom but still, i agree that the silhouette is kinda boring with how straight the shape is.
