Which Dress?

Hi all. I am torn between 2 dresses. I dont have pics of the dresses on me(on my mother's camera)but both look great. It is a beach wedding so I wanted the chiffon material. Plus I have a slim figure so the dress looks similar to that of the model. Take and look and see which of the 2 you like...

    I like number 2 better, especially if you add some sparkle to it somewhere.

    Without seeing them on you, my personal favorite is the 2nd one. I just LOVE sweetheart necklines, and I think the way (I think you call this ruching (sp?)) ruching is around the tummy area would flatter you, from what I've read and heard they say ruching is a good way to hide any problem areas around your mid section if you have any.

    I like #1, it looks so unique! But you would look great in either! Smiley laugh

    I think they are both really pretty dresses, but #1 pops a little more with the detail. #2 seems like it needs something more to it IMO.

    Love #2! So simple yet elegant. I think it would be really flattering.

    I'm doing a beach wedding too and trying to find a dress! From my experience, and recs from photographers, I'd go with #2. The more shiny chiffon of the first one could be washed out with the sun, sand, and reflection off the ocean in your pictures. And personally I like the neckline and more fitted body of #2. But whichever way you go, I bet you'll look beautiful. Congrats & good luck!

    The second one is beautiful. While I think the first dress is most appropriate for a beach wedding, the second one is more attractive. Also, the one strap one the first dress is a little odd.

    #2 gets my vote - it's classic and elegant. Personally I'm not a fan of the one shoulder and agree that it may seem dated in a few years.

    I love #1 because of the bling. I have a Maggie gown, too! Smiley smileTo be honest, you won't know which one to pick until you try them on. I went into the bridal salon and had narrowed down my dress to two dresses based on their photos alone. When I tried them on, I wasn't happy with how I looked in them. The gown I chose is something I never would have picked based solely on the picture. Everything looks different in person, so keep that in mind.

    Good luck! Smiley smile

    I love #2 but if its a beach wedding i'm assuming its going to be fairly hot....the second dress although beautiful loots like it could be quite heavy...you dont want to be a sweaty bride! just something to think about! I'm going to have the opposite problem - getting married in january in the UK!

    Good luck - both are excelent choices!!
