After about 3 months of trying on dresses, I found my dress and veil today! I love my Mori Lee Go...
UPDATE: I've made my decision! DRESS #2 !!!! Even though it was almost unanimous that I should choose dress #1 I'm going to follow my heart and wear my dream dress #2! . I know it'll look amazing when it fits me perfectly. I'm going to go back to the bridal store and get some better pictures to post before my dress arrives. June 24/08 - I SOLD dress number 1, see post above, yay!
I've also decided not to wear the veil I bought (in the picture) and wear my hair in a loose curly updo with a flower instead like my pictures posted above (see Hair & Make-up Trial). Wearing my hair down and wearing a veil is too much for this simple, beautiful dress. My hair needs to be up to show the neckline better.
I fell in love with dress #1 in the first bridal store I went in to and ordered it ..... then I found my dream dress a few months later (I've always wanted to wear a V neck with a low back) and ordered it. It's going to arrive 30 days before the wedding.
So now I have two dresses one of which I'm going to sell. I really LOVE both dresses. They are completely different styles and I've gone back and forth with which one I should wear.
I'd love to get some opinions. Which one do you like on me?
Dress #2 is way too big on me so these pictures don't do it any justice. I know it's hard to imagine it in the right size. I'm a size 6 in this dress and the sample is a size 12. I would also alter the back to a lower V like one of the two pictures I have here because I definitely don't like it going straight across with the spaghetti straps at the back.
Honest opinions please :)
I still have the opportunity to wear whichever dress I want and sell the other as it'll be brand new and unaltered. Thanks :)
Dress #1 - Jayne Louis (local Toronto designer)
Dress #2 - Pronovias Diamante
ADDITION TO POST:
Wow this is actually quite upsetting. I probably shouldn't have posted this question! I had no idea that it would be unanimous that the 1st dress is the better choice. I'm still interested in hearing people's honest opinions, that's why I posted. I just don't know what to do now because I really don't want to wear a strapless dress. I love that the second dress is a V neck, that I can lower the back and that it SHOWS my hips and curves vs a dress that is more a-line and hides everything. I KNOW it'll look gorgeous in the right size and with a lowered back. Thanks for the feedback everyone.
