Thanks everyone on giving me some advise.... I totally appreciate it.
      Both dresses are beautiful, but I think the first one seems like a safer bet w/ a knock-off dress. I was considering very similar styles but was worried a lace overlay done wrong might look cheap. If done right, it's stunning though.

      I've seen the first dress before, I'm pretty sure it's either a Pronovias or San Patrick dress from this season. I'll try to help you find more of the exact pics of the dress if you like.

        Ok, I'm back, it was an easy find 'cause like many other brides I've looked at 30,000 gowns online only to buy one completely opposite of what I wanted (but for rediculously cheap).

        It was the San Patrick Postal dress.
        Here's some extra pics so it's easier to make a decision:

          The quality was very good on the one I ordered but I am not able to use it. Good luck to you.
          Thanks Margret, I am going to see if I can find my dress choices at some of the stores around town...

            Ok so I got a super fast response from Duosheng, so far Wendy has been easy to talk to and very helpful. Now I just need to pick a dress. For the ladies who have done their TTD already or actually anyone for that matter I need some advice. I went to Priscilla of Boston today and tried on two dresses I was in love with when I first chose my actual wedding dress. (I won't do my wedding dress in the knock-off version because I am worried that with all the applique and beading it won't be done well and will look cheap). Thing is I can't decide which dress I like more. They both fit so well and look fab on. Here they are:
            Click the image to open in full size.
            Click the image to open in full size.
            The second one I couldn't find a good pic of it online to post so here it is on their website:
            Style 4311 | Priscilla of Boston

            The first one I am so in love with, it is linen and lace applique over, the low back, the train, everything but I am worried that it will be a bit hard to manuever around in for all the romping on the beach of a TTD. The second doesn't look great on the model but it is a beautiful dress, very light weight but not as "WOW" as the other dress. What do you ladies think?

              I love the first one! BUT if its for a TTD session I'd be inclined to pick the 2nd choice as it seems like it would be easier to manuever in.

I tried on VERY similar styles and this dress is pretty much two of my favs combined. I can't wait to get it! And I'm PRAYING it looks and fits right. I cut it close so there is no real room for error.

                    I absolutely love this dress!! So pretty. Finger-crossed this works out and looks as amazing as this one.

                      Barbiegirl....lol! Yes I am super tiny I am usually a size 00. That is the problem I am having, the mermaid dress actually gives me some shape. The other one is pretty but since the bottom of it is very flowy I lose my shape in it. But the bust area on #2 is tight and so it cinches me in underneath and that looks cute too. I wish I had taken a pic in #2.
