Dress shopping adventure

So I went to Alfred Angelo with my BM this weekend. And I tried on 3 dresses, mermaid style, and two empire dresses which are the styles I have not tried on before. I meant to try on two ball gowns too but they didn't have one in the store, and the other one someone else was trying it on at the time. So out of the 3 I tried on, I really liked the mermaid style, and one of the empire dresses. Here are the pictures of the two I liked. Which ones do you like ladies? I'm more confused now than I was before. I really like 3 other dresses at DB (3 ball gowns). Lord, will I ever settle on one dress?! LOL Good thing I have time. Smiley smile

Oh and if I went with mermaid style, I wold probably make it into a semi sweetheart neckline so it's not straight aross.

    I LOVE both, but I love the 2nd one more! I love the contrast of the color...and the empire waist is always so flattering!

    The second one flatters your shape more. That's my vote. I'm not a huge fan of color on wedding dresses, but I agree you look a lot more comfy and confident in that one. Smiley smile

    I vote for number 2 as well. It is way more figure flattering. Although, I would make it a sweatheart cut on the kneckline.

    Good luck!

    The second one looks great on you.... I've never been a fan of the mermaid it seems like it would be hard to move around all day , not very comfortable if you ask me but they both look great on you so I can see why you are having a hard time deciding.

    @Heather- Yeah I hear you on the color, I wouldn't mind having little bit of color, but the sales lady told me I could also pick the color of the dress (ivory) so it would all be one color dress if I wanted. But I don't know if that would change the look of the dress. If that's the dress, I was thinking about pastel pink/blue/purple but need to figure out wedding colors first.

    I also love the corset back on that dress. And that dress was actually smaller size than the ones I have tried on before, and it fit much better. Go figure. Now I wasn't wearing any slip under that dress, and the lady said I could wear a little slip but she noticed that the dress was not going in between my legs so I probably wouldn't need it.

    And after I left the place, I called FS and told him all giddy "I think I found the dress!" lol

    I plan on going back with my mom and my other BM in May and will most likely buy the dress then. I wish I didn't like the ball gowns I have tried on before at DB, because it would make this decision so much easier. I realize empire is more flattering on me than a ball gown, so this might be the dress ladies!!!!!!!! So glad you all agree! Smiley smile

    They are all beautiful! I will tell you that my step-daughter bought the mermaid style dress you have on in picture 1, she loved it but did have trouble sitting in it! She had a traditional catholic wedding and they had to sit, kneel, stand, sit, kneel, sit alot and the groom had to help her with her chair when she sat down because the dress was a little constricting when she tried to sit. Just food for thought! Make sure you can sit in whichever dress you choose!

    Very good point Konichiwa! I didn't think of that when I tried it on. Thanks for that tip! I definitely want to be able to sit down and be comfortable, and dance a lot. Smiley smile

    I like #2 a lot better than #1. But number #2 of the DB dresses is still my favorite on you!
