I like the second one, but I also like more form-fitting gowns.  I would worry about having the first dress un-fluffed because it’ll look completely different and you may not like the new look of the gown after you’ve paid a fortune to have it de-fluffified.  I’d much rather go with a dress that fits properly (or just needs minor alterations) rather than getting a dress that looks one way and having it changed. 

But that being said, they are both very pretty. 🙂

They are both very pretty. If you are worried about "fluffiness" I would go with the second one!  Just another thought – could your have your seamtress remove the attached tulle from your reem acra dress and then just wear an underskirt (i dont know if thats what the big tulle skirts are called!)?  That way you could have fulliness in the dress for the ceremony and then remove the underskirt for the reception so the dress is easier to move around in.

normally I like slimmer dresses but I actually prefer the first one b/c it looks more unique with the plunging neckline. The second one seems to be a very typical dress IMO, without much that stands out.  Of course the most important thing is how these two dresses look on you. If one fits better or is more flaterring I could change my mind.

It is possible to have separate underskirts such that you can wear the dress with or without, as jcabc says.  The only issue is that the dress will be longer without the underskirts – so you will need to plan your shoes accordingly (maybe flats for the ceremony, and heels for the reception).  I would carefully check sizing on the second dress – many wedding dress sizes are two or more sizes different from street clothes sizes – such that if you normally wear a 10 you might wear a 12 or 14.  And the second dress has quite a serious train – I actually thing that the first dress, with some underskirt removed, might be less cumbersome that the second dress once you get it bustled.

they’re both really lovely – although i can’t see the tightness in the second one, i’m a firm believer and not buying anuthing that you feel uncomfortable in, not matter how good it looks.

but if these are for dancing, they both look really heavy (especially the second with the train) – maybe you should take pictures of whichever you choose to your seamstress to get his / her opinion on possible moderations before you buy it?
