Help!! Can't decide between 2 dresses!!!

Recommended Posts

I have gone back FOUR times to try on each of these dresses and I'm STILL not 100% sure which one to order. The bridal shop called me today telling me I MUST make a decision ASAP as it will take 8 months to come in.

 

Dress #1 is Maggie Sottero Melissa Brooch

The sample fit perfectly so its really easy for me to love this one but its pretty simple

 

Dress #2 is Maggie Sottero Jovi

Now I do realize I'm no skinny-minny and this dress is kinda mermaid shaped but I really like it, especially the peekaboo tulle underneath. The sample though is 2 sizes too small so its hard to picture if the dress will flatter me in my size? Do you think I can pull it off?

 

Help ladies!! I'm leaning towards #2 Jovi but I'm hesitant because I don't know exactly how the dress will look in my size!

Definitely Dress #2! Interestingly, I went with the melissa brooch, but trying to save money for a 3rd ttd dress, I got a knock off of it online at inweddingdress.com. Well, it came out pretty awful, so I'm glad you're going with a real one! I say that the Melissa somewhat makes the bottom look too short on you? I even had that issue, because the bodice was so long on me. I know they custom make it for your body though. I am 5'9, though, so who knows. Theres always ways around that of course, and maybe it's the angle the pic was taken!

 

On the flipside, I LOVE dress two, because not only do i feel it gives you more of a nice curve, but mermaid shapes are really flattering to give that womanly hourglass feel! :)

 

Either way, good luck deciding! You'll look stunning in whatever you pick!

I must have looked at each dress 5 different times. I honestly think both of them look great on you, I love the back of dress #1 but I love the detail on dress #2. Sorry it's a toss up for me, but the cut and style of the dresses you choose is very flattering. Good luck :-)

I can see why you are having such a hard decision here. They both have their positives. I love the front of the second dress and the back of the first. I think you will be happy with either dress.

Oooooh! This is a tough one....

 

Well, I gotta say that I truly feel that #2 is the right dress for you! And I know where you are coming from when you tried on the sample dress and it was a little too small! When I tried on my Sottero & Midgley, I was like, 'You want me to wear a what? A 6? I'm a lot of things, but a size 6 I AM NOT!' and they said, just to give it a shot, and sure enough, even though I am a street size 10/12, I was able to get enough of an idea of what it looked like to fall head over heels. YOU LOOKED BEAUTIFUL in both of them, but I just loved the cut of the second dress, and although dress #1 is lovely, I think 2 was just more special looking on you!

 

GOOD LUCK making your decision and CONGRATULATIONS on finding 2 gorgeous gowns (you can't go wrong either way!) wink.gif

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
