    They both have a pretty similar shape and look nice, but I’m leaning slightly toward the Maggie Talese

    I voted the Alyce. I feel like the sweetheart helps elongate your torso better whereas the Maggie’s straight top cuts you off bluntly.

    If you really like the Maggie, maybe try to see if a seamstress can alter it into a sweetheart neckline?

    The Alyce is romantic with the roses and unique! I have seen the first one a lot on the wedding bee. Love the 2nd one!

    They’re both similar, but I chose the first one because it makes your waist look tinyyy

    Girl, I would never be able to tell in the Maggie picture that you’re 4’11”. If you’re going for “height,” Maggie does it for you. But both dresses are absolutely lovely!

    My dress is very similar to the Talese (Saratoga), and although I am a couple of inches taller than you (5’2), found it made me feel taller.  I’m having the front hem changed to a bubble hem to match the train.  So although I’m biased, my vote is definitely for the Talese.  That being said, I would have said the same, because I feel like the strap on the Alyce is slightly overwhelming.

    I really like the second one; the only reason I didn’t vote for it is that I don’t love the ruffle thing around the neckine and on the shoulder. That detail, IMO, takes away from the whole look. It’s “top-heavy,” as a PP said. Without the ruffle, though, I love that dress on you.

    I think dress #1 flows on you better, I do like #2 but feel it’s a little too busy on the top?  But honestly, I had a hard time choosing, they both look good.

    @LizethG: Personally, I like dress one on you best. I think the dropped waist on the first dress elongates your torso more, giving the illusion of height. If you feel like something is missing, try checking with the bridal salon to see if they could order in some flowers (or you could also check etsy….lots of neat flowers there) and then have the seamstress tuck the flowers into the pickups on dress one. If you don’t like flowers you could also see if you could find some sparkleys to add near the pickups in dress #1.
