So in my family you go with your mom and all girl members to pick a dress. I live in PA and my family lives in GA, I will only see them again twice before the wedding (christmas which is a crazy time of the year and bridal shower which is too late to get a dress) so two weeks ago I went to see them and we went to get THE dress. I tried on about 10 dresses but one after the other the battle was between the first two. After voting, I found my winner and took it home. Because this is a big event in my family of course the pictures were taken and the whole thing was an event 🙂 I went home very happy! I love my dress!. When I got home I downloaded the pictures and panic settled in when I realized I still like both dresses! there is plenty of time so I can take the one I have if needed and exchange it for the other one. I will post the pictures but won’t tell you which one I bought so you can give me a “blind” opinion. Thank you SOOOOOO much for your honest opinion! thank you ladies!! 🙂
DRESS # 2:

They are both gorgeous on you but I personally prefer the second one, I think because of the way it hits at your waist.

They both look beautiful! As of my vote, it is split 50/50. I’m interested to see which way this goes!

@mrswagner: I like dress one better, but I also have to qualify that with-I don’t like pick ups (just a personal preference on my part). You look happier in dress #2. You won’t go wrong with either one. 🙂

I like Dress 1 better on you. Dress 2 seems to overwhelm your frame a bit.

Ive never really been a fan of that first dress on other girls but it looks so good on you! You pull it off beautifully. So i would say 1.

Gosh, this one is a really tough call. I personally prefer dress #1, but that’s personal preference. Girl, you can’t go wrong either way!

For sure number 2 you look unbelievely pissed off in dress 1.

I love them both, but I am going with the second one! =]

You can’t go wrong either way. Not at all helpful, I know… I kept scrolling between the pics and I like them both on you. #2 may have a slight lead. I like the proportions better and personally prefer the bodice more than the first. The pick-ups don’t bother me as much b/c it’s balanced and still seems light (not overworked). Beautiful gowns! 🙂

Dress 1! Dress 1! Your face in the pictures say dress 2 but you look fabulous in dress 1. So elegant! Dress 2 is nice but the pick ups just doesn’t seem to fit you at all.

I think the emphasis on your waist in #2 is more flattering, although you look great in both. I also like the way the skirt falls better- it looks more flowy. The first one makes me think “frizzy”. I do agree the second skirt overwhelms you a bit through- could you remove some layers or do something to make it less poufy?
I think if you took dress #1, removed the beading from the hip and put it (or something) at your natural waist, I’d like it better. But you can’t just toss a sash on it- it won’t work with the beading at the drop waist.
