I went shopping yesterday!!! I found two I like. The ruffle SanPatrick is consignment, and happens to already be the perfect size, even the length for my 5’1″ frame! It’s a great price too, WAY under budget. The lace is over budget, like almost 2.5x the ruffle dress, but I like the shape slightly more. However, I like the back on the ruffle dress more – yay buttons! Help me pick! Which looks better?

Definitely the lace! It’s stunning!

Both are nice. I also like the shape of the lace slightly more, but I don’t think it’s worth going over budget for (unless that’s not too much of an issue for you and you really, really like it).

They both look great on you! But I vote ruffles! Mostly because it’s your perfect size and length, almost like it was waiting for you 🙂

Lace. The ruffles look a bit too busy to me. The lace is classic and so beautiful on you!

I do like the lace more, but not 2.5 times more, so I’d go with the ruffles. Keep in mind, you’ll likely have to spend extra altering the lace, and buy accessories as well. On the otherhand, don’t get the ruffles if you’ll end up constantly thinking about the lace, leading to dress regret, and finishing as a two dress bride and wasting even more money overall. You know best your temperament. So I suggest you spend some time imagining the ruffles hanging up in your closet and sleep on it.

I personally like the lace dress way more but by the tone of your post, it sounds like you really love the ruffles so I say go for it! Especially since it’s under budget and 2.5x less than the lace that you don’t sound as crazy about.

I like the lace a tad more but I did have to think about it, neither was way more than the other! They both look gorgeous on you and your figure looks fab! But like others have said I wouldn’t say the lace is worth 2.5x more than the ruffles dress so I’d probably go with the ruffles or keep looking at similar lace ones more in budget.
Have a sleep on it, you’ll know which one stays in your head more 🙂

I’m not a fan of this kind of ruffle. It just totally makes me think flamenco. So I voted lace!
