Well...i posted something similar to this before between two dresses...i ruled one of them out but another has come along & i'm stuck again!!! *pictures are not me in the dress...just pics i got off google*

Both are maggie sottero, lace mermaid. The one with a lace cap sleeve & keyhole back is called Elliana. Its a lace overlay & zipper back w buttons...the other is called Julia & is strapless & has a corset back (which i like better than zipper buttons). The Julia has a tulle skirt with no lace around the bottom, while the Elliana has lace from top to bottom. I love both for different reasons & I can't decide! I'm trying both on June 29th. I would wear a cathedral mantilla & a crystal sash with either dress.

ALSO, i have very long hair, which hubby has said time and time again, he wants me to wear it down i prefer my hair down too)...i feel like with the Elliana dress, i would have to wear my hair up.

OPINIONS!?!?!? #1 or #2??

#1 Julia

    I love the back of number 1 and the front of number 2 Lol. I know that doesn't help much. They are both beautiful dresses. I think once you try them in it will help you decide. Sorry I can't be of more help

    My dress is similar to the Elliana and I'm wearing my ridiculously long hair up to show off the detail of the dress. But obviously because it's like my dress I prefer the Elliana.

    You have plenty of time, so if you like the lace detail on the bottom of the Elliana dress but everything else about the Julia then you can see if a combo exists.

    Trying them on will definitely help you decide. Some dresses look amazing in photos and absolutely ridiculous on!

    #1 it reminds me A LOT of my dress. So maybe I'm bias. But you look gorgeous in either one!

    Maybe... possibly... find a hair stylist that can work something that you can have up for the ceremony/pictures and stuff, then can be taken out and just be down and pretty without looking a mess for the reception?

    And get # 2 =]

    I love #2 but maybe you can find a side ponytail like hairdo in which your hair could still be down but show off the beautiful back still!

    I like #1. When I was shopping, I completely thought I wanted a lace dress with cap sleeves and keyhole back- but when I put on the dresses it was so much material by my face it was overwhelming. Something to consider in case you're short like me. Smiley smile

    Oh, and I know there are some dresses that are strapless lace with detachable cap sleeves- I tried one of those on as well. Then you could do sleeves for the ceremony and sweetheart neckline for the reception.
