Hiya, I love the second one. It shouldn’t matter what your mum thinks, so long as you feel beautiful in it and love it that’s all that matters : )

I really love the first one, but that’s just my opinion. Good luck!

Hmm, I think both of them look great on you and are very flattering!  Which one best suits the look and feel of your wedding?  (i.e. I think the second dress is PERFECT for an afternoon garden wedding.) And which one do YOU feel the best in?

The SECOND one!!! The soft, sheer texture of the overlay is really beautiful!

I like the first one, but thats just my preference. The second one does not look bad at all. I’m all about a good deal.

Ohh I like the second one better, too.  Tell your mom it IS white and be happy you found a deal. 

Don’t worry.  I don’t even think I like my dress, and I can’t imagine wearing it for very long, it’s sooo uncomfortable (and it was custom-made).  Sigh.

Eek! Tough decision – they are both beautiful….but okay I have to pick one right?

ooooh….I’m going with the dress #2, I love the overlay & the train!

Let us know which one you choose – either way you’re going to be a gorgeus bride!

Honestly, if I’d found a dress that I liked and it fit me with no alterations annnnnnnnd it was on sale I’d have bought it too. Do you like it? Will you be happy wearing it at your wedding? It really comes down to you and what makes you happy. I think both are very pretty!

It looks an awful lot like the dress I just bought for myself, so perhaps I’m a little biased, though. I think the stark white can be harsh on some skin tones, and sometimes the off-white with champagne can be a lot more flattering. But i love the lacey look to the second one, sooo romantic! 

But really, it depends on whichever you love more. Picture yourself saying your vows at your wedding to your almost-husband. Which dress are you wearing?? Your heart will tell you which is the right dress.

I like the back of the second one- that train is awesome.

Your mom was really inconsiderate to tell you that.  I think you should just ignore her.

I do like the 2nd one much better. It’s your wedding so wear what YOU want to wear. It’s very pretty and it’s not like it’s crazy and hot pink or anything!

Goold luck!

I think the bottom line is whether you like it.  Cuz if you do then you could defend it to your mother, but if you can’t then maybe you aren’t convinced you love it???? You need to make a decision and if you do, I have no doubt your mom will support you. Maybe she senses your indecision and wants to make sure you are sure? 

So plop down with all your pictures and think about both days you tried on dresses and only think about what you want and not what people expect, etc. etc.  The good news is… they are both beautiful so you can’t go wrong!!!!

LOVE the second one hands down!!! I think the color looks great on you and the fit is amazing for not having any alterations!  Personally I would say thanks but no thanks to my mom and go with the dress I loved. . .after all YOU are the one getting married therefore YOU are the one wearing the dress. In My Humble Opinion

Good luck
