    Knowing this would you still recommend the same dress?

     

    It is still early, I’m going to need to ponder on this decision for a few weeks and try them on again with fresh eyes.

      Get Both! Kidding...

       

      Knowing what you just posted, Dress A in my opinion is more appropriate (a bit more bridal and conservative) for hometown receptions.  I still love Dress B though... Really it is whichever dress makes you feel the most beautiful in!

        I think dress A looks great on you.  My opinion, get dress A for the wedding, and the home receptions and get dress B for a TTD session

                My vote is for dress A. While they are both gorgeous dress A makes more of an impression. The train is magnificent!

                    I love dress A, but I'm sure you would look amazing in either!

                      Trash the Dress.  If you haven't heard of this, then you mush search this site for pictures!!!  (I had never heard of it before this forum)  A day or two after the wedding you and your husband head out with your photographer and take pictures that you would never dare take on your wedding day.  For instance some ladies head to the beach and jump in the ocean and roll in the sand.  Other couples head to cenotes (sink-holes/caves filled with fresh water) in the jungle and get in the water.  So some brides believe that you should trash the dress you get married in - that the pictures are more meaningful this way.  Other brides hate the idea of risking damage to their dress and buy a second dress, often less expensive and more "flowy", for the TTD.  TTD pictures are often more playful (think jumping off of a pier into the ocean) and sexier (think rolling around in the sand with your husband).  And often the water actually ends up helping to clean your dress from the ceremony/reception.

                       

                      (I am choosing to do my TTD session in my real wedding dress, but mine was relatively inexpensive.)
