Both look great on you! I would pick the left if you’re getting married in a church/indoor venue with high ceilings, and you’re having a reception in a ballroom/like space. It looks more formal and elegant. I’d pick the one on the right for an outdoor wedding and a more relaxed reception venue because it has that flowy skirt and floral detailing.
I think the shape of the right dress is great on you, very flattering.
The left is very dated and doesn’t seem nearly as special.
If it has to be one of these two, go right. If you can continue shopping, look for dresses similar to the right and maybe try on different bodices to see if there are details of others you like more (maybe beading or different types of lace).
The left is dated (right up there with that David’s Bridal dress with the corset back and usually red trim that was everywhere a few years back). But even if you didnt care if it is dated, I think satin + rouching + pickups = rumpled bedsheets. Satin is one of those fabrics that can go wrong quickly when you try to add too many design elements to it.
The right strikes me more like a costume from a play and where the lace bodice ends hits at the widest part of your hips. You have a great natural waist, but you are short-waisted and that bodice just cuts off in the wrong place and somehow emphasizes your short waist rather than elongating it.
I’m in the minority here. I prefer the left one on you. I love the way it wraps around your body and then fallsi not a spectacualr skirt. The one on the right is a very generic style. The lefto ne has panache and wow factor + you wear it very well.
Side note , whenever i see your username I wanna go back upstate and chill out🌞 I usually only go there over NYE weekend with a big group of friends but i love it year round
Thanks everyone! I’m kind of bummed to hear some people don’t like either as I LOVE both but everyone has their own taste/opinion 🙂 While I wish a trumpet style dress would work for me, my short legs and curvy figure realllllly doesn’t make it look good (trust me). I’m on a podium in these pictures so it makes me look a little taller than I actually am. Also can’t walk in heels to save my life.
I think budget-wise I’m going to go with one of these options! Thanks again for all the feedback!
To be honest, I feel the dress style and on the left looks a little dated. I also don’t feel its flattering to your figure. The the dress on the right hands down wins my vote. It looks like a current style, bright, fresh and compliments your figure.
I agree with those who say you can do better for the same money. I think the dress on the left is much more figure flattering but dated and too much going on. The one on the right makes you look much hippier than you really are. IMO you need something that will lengthen your torso, which this dress doesn’t do.
I agree with PP that if you do go with the dress on the right it may need to be brought in on the sides.
