    I love #2 on you better, I'm not into the big gowns for me, but on you it looks stunning :)

    I hope you get what you want and I know your mom will be happy for you in the end no matter what!

      Christie, what the hell were you thinking? lmao..sorry! I kid, I kid! Your dream dress is BEAUTIFUL! Why on earth would you think it was "too much"?? And trust me, I'm in no position to judge on the entire issue of buying a dress too soon; my dress searches are the stuff of legend around here. lol

      You are entirely right in your thinking....this is your wedding and the ONE thing you need to be rock solid on other than the guy next to you is that you feel and look beautiful. Don't settle when you're not happy about a dress, period. The first dress is very classic and timeless. I like it. BUT, the second dress is more intricate without being overpowering AT ALL, so do not walk around worrying about looking over the top. I swear, when I read your post I was expected 8 miles of tulle in the pic! It's a beautiful gown, that looks very much like a modern wedding gown! I really think it suits you and it's stunning!

      What are we alway saying around here? Please YOURSELF. At the end of it all when everyone has left and it's just you, hubby and your memories....you want to look back with no BIG regrets. It's obvious that if you don't get the dress you love you're gonna regret it, so do it and be happy!

      Now...about this "hippier" crap. Watch your language when you are talking to the walking-birth-center-with-a-mermaid-gown over here. hahahahahahaha! No no..I get it. It's all about comfort and if you aren't comfortable wearing something like that being more of an hourglass then it's definitely a no-no. Me? I'm gonna swing these suckers left to right all the way down that aisle and whoever gets hurt it's just too bad. tee hee

        They are all lovely but dress two definately has the wow factor. You look great in both so I say go for the one that makes your heart skip.

          Let me just say a special thanks to the ever-honest and hilarious Miss Savannah -- if you're not a professional writer, you should consider a career change, because you always make my literally "laugh out loud" and you offer the most spot-on advice next to "Dear Abby"!

              Well if you want a WOW factor, you definately have it in dress #2! The beading and lace on that dress is GORGEOUS! AND, I agree with everyone, You look absolutely STUNNING in that dress!! I think the sweetheart neckline suits you better.

              I love the idea of shortening dress #1 and wearing it to your AHR! You can even use that for your TTD if you decide to do one!!

                My vote is for dress #2 ... it's beautiful and defninitely WOW! I love the tule showing on the side too. ;-)

                  I MEAN IT - YOU GUYS ARE TRULY THE BEST! Thanks so much for all of your sweet, greatly appreciated compliments and insight!

                  Just to be on the safe side, I have gone on what seems like every imaginable bridal gown website, from the super ritzy Kleinfeld site to DB's comparably priced competitor site (Alfred Angelo), and NOTHING has jumped out at me as a dress that will be able to top #2 as THE DRESS for me!

                  As I mentioned, I have the standard 15-20 lbs. I want to lose before Wedding Day, so I think I might wait a few months before I purchase the dress, so I don't have to get a zillion alterations. Hey, and if I am REALLY lucky and bust my ass working out, maybe I'll be able to even get a size smaller than the one I tried on in the picture?! Fingers crossed THAT miracle will happen! (Off-topic side bar: And does anybody know off hand when the next BDW Biggest Loser season is? I think I might have missed signing up for it....bummer!)

                  Again, XOXO to you all!

                    i meant to comment earlier but didnt have time - like everyone else said #2 is FANTASTIC!! You can tell how much you love it just by your description so on your wedding day you will GLOW! This is the one time ever you get to wear a dress like that :)

                      I say go for the "wow" factor you want! I did the same and became a 2-dress bride but it was completely worth it!
