    I love the second one but as I have just discovered you cannot make a decision on a stock photo!!  You need to try these on so we can see them on you but liking your style anyway xx

    Hands down, number 1. its just gorgeous! Even tho I am not a big fan of the bolero/shrug look, the dress is perfect. I wouldn’t worry too much about the sleeve thing, I bet you would be plenty warm in strapless, after all, it is a kind of stressful thing, the ceremony.  Afterwards you could have a beautiful pashmina  to use if you are chilly.

    I love number one… just without the bolero.

    Considering the similiar style of these two dresses, for you I am choosing number two. It seems to be a more cohesive choice of what you want, or what I think you want. Unless of course, the bolero is for the ceremony, and the reception is bolero free. 😉

    I love them both but I think if you like the look and feel of sleeves, it’s better to go with actual  sleeves rather than a bolero. I just think it looks more cohesive that way. 


    Some dresses that come with boleros look fine, but this one doesn’t look like the bolero is actually part of the dress.


    Alternatively, you could look for a dress that has a matching jacket layer. These tend to look more like part of the dress than a bolero does. E.g. this one (looks cohesive to me because the lace pattern on the skirt and sleeves is the same:

    @loving_life:  +1 it is for sure a bolero on the first gown, and I’m biased for the buttons on the second one! (:

    #2.  #1 makes me think of drapes, but that could be the bow. I like the detail on the fabric in #2.

    From what I’ve seen bandage dresses look nicest in the designers’ photos.

    I don’t know whether you can get them in Australia, but have you looked at Ellis Bridals? They are a British brand and their collection has several gorgeous dresses with long lace sleeves. One in particular would be my dream dress if I were having a winter wedding. They might only be based in Britain, but just a suggestion.

    Both are beautiful but I voted dress 1. I think the bodice is prettier on 1 but I do really love the back of dress 2…… It would help to see them on thou 🙂

    Wow, I literally had no idea that you posted this earlier. If you look onto my profile, I just posted asking about the exact same 2 dresses. The funny part is, I would be wearing either without the bolero/jacket (also for a winter wedding, but indoor climate controlled). They are both beautiful dresses, and I don’t think it is possible to go wrong either way! for this reason, I did not vote. However, may I suggest another dress to look at? I found this one while looking at these two, but ultimately removed it from my list due to the fact that I only liked it with the lace jacket on and I wanted strapless:


    The pictures don’t do it justice, it is so beautiful in person! It really nips in the waist, and the lace jacket was amazing.

    I love the first dress without the sleeves, but since you need sleeves the second dress wins. The sleeves are gorgeous on that dress and they don’t look like they’re forced onto the dress.

    the second dress! the sleeves flow so beautifully into the dress, and is incorporated into the dress perfectly.  the first is pretty as well if that’s what you do decide, but I feel like the lace jacket is just thrown onto it. the second one just comes together so well! good luck!
