So I’ve narrowed it down to the top 2 choices. I was adamantly against a princess dress until trying these on! I really appreciate the input as my wedding is in 3 months!
This first dress is the M. Sottero Esme dress, It has a tulle bottom and Gold sweetheart top with beading and bling! This dress is more of A-line.
This is the Justin Alexander, It’s a lot more full and regal in my opinion. It’s more of a ball (Moms favorite, LOL)gown fit.

I think you look fantastic in both! They both look quite similar to me – though I realize dress 2 is more full. I typically like a less full dress – but at least in these pictures, that one looks like it might fit you just a tiny bit better (but obviously neither dress has been fitted for you yet!).

Definitely the Justin Alexander!!!

Definitely the first one in my opinion. I agree with the person above saying that sometimes less is more. There’s so much detail going on in the top, I think the first one looks great because it flatters your figure and still looks like you wearing the dress rather than the dress wearing you! Then again, I’m not much of a ballgown gal myself so I could be more biased.

Holy moly you are gorgeous!!! You can’t go wrong in either, but for me it’s the Justin Alexander. It fits you beautifully. I think the way that the Sottero waist line come to “V” isn’t as flattering. I’d say mom knows best!

I think they’re both stunning. The first one feels a tiny bit younger and more fun to me. Not sure why I’m getting that vibe, but I am. The bodice of the first dress is so stunning. The bottom of the second dress is equally wow factor. I don’t think you can make a bad choice. And if you want the first dress to be poofier and bigger like the second, you could easily accomplish that with crinoline. Close your eyes and imagine yourself walking down the aisle towards your Fiance…what dress do you see yourself in?

You can’t go wrong with either one, but I would definitely vote number 1!

tkala: I absolutely love the first one. If this makes sense, in #1 I see you first then the dress, where in #2 I see the dress first then you, and I think that is due to the size of it. You have such a cute and petite figure that #2 swallows you. Like alot of the other ones are saying, less more. If you love #2 though, go for it and rock it! Either dress you look beautiful in. Good Luck!

Keep in mind both of these dresses are a size 14, I’m more of a 4 or 2. 🙂

I think they are both beautiful. Justin Alexander wins my vote but only by a very slight margin. Either is a great choice!
