Can’t choose - love both! Please help

Kate, on July 2, 2021 at 8:42 AM Posted in Wedding Attire 3 56
I am in love with both of these dresses. They are not alike at all but they are the same price. I don’t want to reach out to friends or family for their opinion because I do want them to be surprised and have the ooohh and ahhh factor, so I’m hoping you all can help me.

Things I like about the fit and flair- Beautiful details in the lace
- fit almost perfectly - I surprised myself because I was avoiding fit and flair dresses because I thought I was too short (5’ 3”).Can’t choose - love both! Please help 1Can’t choose - love both! Please help 2

Things I like about the ballgown- The train is amazing - Feels sexy but not scandalous- was the first dress I tried onCan’t choose - love both! Please help 3

    Both are so gorgeous on you!! I also got a fit & flare for my reception dress and never though I'd like that fit on me since I'm short as well lol (4'11") We're also the same size!!!

    My vote is for dress #1. While I LOVE the train of #2, I feel like the first one is so flattering on you.

    1st dress for sure. The 2nd one is beautiful, but the 1st accents your curves!

    The first dress for sure. It’s details, the lace, the train all gorgeous. And it would be perfect for a spring wedding.

    Dang I see your dilemma

    I think the fit and flare does a better job of accentuating your curves.

    The first dress accentuates your curves more and better than the second one, the second dress is a beautiful dress and looks amazing on you as well!

    In my opinion I think one of the biggest factors to take into consideration is are you going to have either dress bustled? If you are then you need to have an idea as to how the weight of the bustle feels for you and if it is too heavy. Another thing to keep in mind is that I have seen some others get a dress like the second one and plan to bustle it, but they don't know which type of bustle to use, it doesn't look as nice, or it becomes complicated due to all the layers of material.

    Both are beautiful but I would have to say dress #2 wine my vote. I think it will be more comfortable and easy to move in. I also love the top and all the layers. If you’re still stuck maybe go try more dresses on in those style to see. I think you know when you find the one because you won’t question. Good luck!
