    The satin one. It is SO flattering on you. No offence, but the first one makes you looks a couple sizes bigger.

    @tandreini:  I can’t choose! You look amazing in both of them! Seriously, you can’t go wrong. Go with your heart!

    The 1st one, lace, fits your theme and idea of your wedding better. I agree that the photo isn’t as flattering, but once fitted to your body on your wedding day, it will likely be stunning! 

    The satin gives more of a modern feel, which I feel would be out of place in your wedding.

    I think the first one will make peoples jaws drop, the second is one I have seen over and over again at weddings. I love the softness of the AV as well:) Either way you will be stunning!

    The first goes with your theme better, but the second is gorgeous and much more flattering (I think).

    They’re both really great – I think the first one fits your theme/venue better, BUT the second looks AMAZING on you and it’s $1200 cheaper!  So I would pick #2.  (No one besides other brides-to-be will be thinking about the dress matching the venue, anyway.)

    I love lace! The dress really wasn’t clamped very well, so it looks like it doesn’t fit well. Once it’s properly fitted, it will look great! I bought a satin dress similar to the second one(Mikaella 1406), had major dress regret and then bought a lace dress, so I guess I’m biased lol. I think the flower belt adds some country chic to the whole look, so would suit the venue. You could try a coloured sash as well?

    You look great in both! The lighting in the lace dress makes me want to pick the satin, but I think it (the lace) sounds like it better fits your venue and would look better with a birdcage veil.

    I like the second dress. However, I admit that I may be biased, because I had a beautiful gown that did not photograph well (it looked stunning in the video, however.) If that is a concern for you about the first option — and I think you may be right — I would opt for one that you know will photograph beautifully.

    I personally like the first one better, but I think the second one looks better on your body type….very flattering!

    @tandreini:  A different belt could definitely do it and send it over the top. Whatever you pick though, you’re going to look amazing. =)

    Hi! Which dress did you choose?  I bought the Alvina Valenta for my wedding but the underlay color seems to be a bit darker than champagne and the buttons to be a bit gray? I want to make sure my dress didn’t fade since I bought it but it seems to be off color. Was yours like that? Any advice or pics would be amazing.  Also if you bought it, what shoes/where from did you rock? I am having a hard time figuring out what goes with it since the lace is so pretty at the bottom. Thank you! Jessica
