Hi there

I am stuck between these to dresses. I love them both. The one that is strapless has the most amazing train - The other one has the most amazing sleeves and lace. I really am stuck. Please note that the wedding is in August in South Africa so it might be a little cold. Please help me pic. I included side by side pics.

    I love the sleeves and back of that dress but love the front of the strapless dress and the belt.

    Please note that both dresses will still need to go for alterations to fit perfectly

    The lace on the one with sleeves is absolutely gorgeous!!! The neckline is flattering. The back is beautiful! I’d pick sleeves. But you’re going to be beautiful in whatever you pick

    1000% the one with the lace and sleeves in my opinion.

    Strapless (you can get a wrap if it’s cold & it’ll look nice for pics too).

    Oh wow, I see your dilemma. They both have beautiful details and are very different. I honestly really like both and I think either one will look beautiful, but I think I would go with the strapless. Accessories can really change the look and really pull the whole look together. I can picture you having a cathedral lace trimmed veil to compliment that gorgeous train and maybe a white faux fur wrap or lace bolero if it will be on the colder side.

    I was all for the dress with sleeves until I saw the back. Completely changed my mind to the sleeveless dress (you can always have your seamstress add sleeves if you really want them).

    I don't know what it is, but in these pics, you seem to be more comfortable in the sleeveless dress pics. That would get my vote.

    Same. And when I saw the train in the sleeves one, I fell for that one.

    Sleeveless dress is my vote

    It is very hard for me but thank you ladies , you have helped me a little. I do love the sleeves though . I cried when I tried that one on, I feel like a princess, but everyone tells me the sleeves one looks better.

    Hi Cindy! I personally LOVE the dress with the sleeves! I think that the detail is breathtaking, and the lace on the bodice itself is so gorgeous! I think the dress is more unique than the strapless one, and really compliments your figure! Also, where in South Africa will you be getting married? My sister just attended a wedding in Cape Town, and the wedding was breathtaking! Can't wait to hear more details!
