Dress 2 ( with the detachable sleeves left on) by far. It is so graceful and flowing plus fits beautifully. Dress 1 is a pretty dress, but not particularly flattering in that it does truncate you rather.
So, dress 2, in which you look lovely. It is worth the $400 extra .
l don’t, fwiw, think you need to take anything out of the skirt, it is not poofy at all.

Dress 2 is gorgeous on you but not with that veil. The appliqué on imthe veil doesn’t blend with dress

Keep shopping. Dress 1 doesn’t do you any favors. Dress 2 is great, but too plain to break the bank for.

Dress 2 is a much better sillouette for you. However, if you don’t love it, you need to keep looking! Maybe you could get the same sillouette but with some lace?

Dress 2 has a very pretty flow to it and is very flattering on you!
I like the lace on the first dress but I think the reason some are saying it looks off is that the waist is falling lower on you than it’s meant to. So if you love that style maybe keep looking for one that’s similar but hits at your true waist. This dress in particular takes something away from your shape and I think you could find something in the same style that accentuates your curves.

Defnititely the sleeveless ball gown. For some reason you look about 10 years younger in it – not to say you look old in the other one (you don’t!), but it just looks like too mature a style and doesn’t compliment your figure nearly as well as the sleeveless ball gown. Add the veil and it’s perfection. It’s lovely with or without the detachable sleeves IMO.

Dress 2 with the sleeves 100%
Dress 1 is lovely, but it will date quite quickly. Dress 2 is timeless and so romantic looking.

I’m the odd one out here because I really like dress 1!

Dress 2 for sure! U should wear shoulders straps for when you walk down the aisle as it has a very romantic look to it, but can probably take it off later for the reception (or keep it on if u wish). The second dress accentuates ur figure in the right places and definitely more flattering. Dress #1 does not do you justice!

The strapless dress is so flattering on you and it’s completely timeless. The pearl necklace is a perfect accessory. I can’t see that you could top that really. Just divine 😊

I agree with previous bees, dress #2 is lovely on you with the sleeves on! But, I also don’t think the veil suits it, so I definitely vote for dress #2 with sleeves but with a different veil!

The strapless gown made my jaw drop. Stunning! Wow! That is the dress for you!!!

Dress 2 with the sleeves on is definitely my favorite option. I would say if possible you should go shopping again. The advice I received was “go look at other dresses, if this is the one it’ll only make you more sure.” And it turned out to be very true.

I prefer dress 2, but since it’s out of your budget… I voted to keep looking =)
