HELP! I have 2 dresses....

Recommended Posts

You girls are the best! Thanks so much for all the kind words - I can't wait until Tuesday when I will be able to have someone take pictures of me in both dresses so I can get your honnest reactions - I know you wont lead me down the wrong path!

 

As for the SPANX - YES THEY ARE AMAZING. I ordered mine from Nordstrom.com and actually got 2 pairs. One pair was item #146033 and was called SPANX Higher Power - it was $34 and did an OK job. UNTIL I tried the 2nd pair - LOVE IT! The second pair was $72 and was called PLUS HIGH RIS - these were made of a stronger in fabric and the crotch area is missing out of it. I am assuming this is so if you have to go to the restroom it isn't a major issue - could come in handy....

Is the 2nd dress Nicole Miller? If so, I LOOOOOVED that dress and thought I wanted to buy it but when I tried it on my sister totally vetoed it! I was sad. I think she thought it showed way too much boob.

 

I think we can give better advice when we see you in both dresses.

I actually have the second dress you posted. It is so gorgous and perfect for a beach wedding - I love it. However, the first dress looks pretty on you too. I guess it's just whatever you feel most comfortable in. What's great about Nordstroms is you can return the dress if you decide to go with the other one. I ordered it late one night in a moment of weakness too, but it worked out, because I love it!

Here's a funny story - I was sitting next to my fiance on the laptop when I opened your post. I told him "Help this bride pick out her dress. Which do you like?" I hadn't scrolled down, but I about had a heart attack when it was my wedding dress that was your #2! I muttered something and kept scorlling down and said "Never mind." He wasn't paying much attention anyways, but what are the chances!?!

I'm sure whatever dress you choose will look great! Good luck.

lol - but wouldn't that have been awesome if he chose the second one - you could have done a mini celebration (not out loud of course lol).

THAT's TOO FUNNY - what are the chances! BTW are you worried about the boobs showing too much? Janet's sisters veto might be the same reason I don't end up wearing the 2nd one...my family might be shocked!

Oooo I can't wait to see the pics of you in the second dress. The first one will be hard to top but I think it will be of a different look. You look good in the first dress. i like the neck line on it. very pretty, just like u!

 

do we have to wait until tomorrow for the other dress pics **whine**

I really like the second dress. It is really sexy and I think it really fits the whole destination theme! I am sure you will look good in which ever one you choose, but my vote is for number 2!!

i also found myself in the two dress situation. it's so hard to choose with so many awesome dresses. one of my dresses is more traditional like your #1 and the second is more relaxed (like your #2). instead of torturing myself trying to pick, i decided to do both! i'm wearing the weddingy dress for the ceremony and then changing into the other for the reception because it'll be easier for me to move around in!

I am pretty averaged sized boob-wise, so I'm not too worried about showing too much... there's a little side-boobage, but not too much (and I typically don't dress very flashy). I'm going to get one of those stick on bras for a little added control though. Just go with the dress you feel like a bride in! I ordered the dress, tried it on, and decided it was the one before I asked anyone else what they thought! Can't wait to see the pics!!

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
