    I'm so sorry for the large images. I've tried shrinking them for the past 20 minutes and no luck, sorry.

    I've narrowed my search to two dresses but I'm waiting for the Brides Against Cancer Dress Sale, which comes to L.A. in November, to make my decision.

    Here they are... (please excuse the price, I sent this to my mom and SIL to help me decide) Either dress will be altered to have a slight sweetheart top and lower back.

    Pronovias Nerveo- I love the detail on the bottom, but its a mermaid cut and makes my hips look even bigger

    San Patrick Real, more traditional, but the cut is a little more flattering. The lace stands out and I plan to add some tulle on top to give it the feature of the bottom pic. (its also more affordable, I found it on RK Bridal for $300 cheaper!)

      The pics are a little off on my monitor--- real small with some appearing on the left and others appearing at the end of a sentence. But if I'm putting the correct pic of you in each dress to each of the model photos---- I would say the Pronovia dress. I love the bottom detail on the dress, and I love the way it looks on you! The other dress looks good too, but I'm just not a fan of that black sash and overall, it just doesn't have that 'pop' for me like the Pronovia dress does...

      Amy I can barely see the pictures, can you make them any bigger?

        How weird, they are HUGE on mine. I resized them on photobucket but they didn't change on my screen but I guess it worked a little too good.

        Let me try fixing them...

          Amy, I picked Pronovia dress. It shows your curves much better, your hips are not big at all! The other dress doesn't really stand out. But I agree, if you make the top on the Pronovia dress into a sweetheart, it will look even better!!

            Amy I voted for #2, both are really nice but I think it St. Patrick looks much better, In the pics from Pronovia I see is not so narrowed at the bottom, is just my imagination, can be used that way? that could be an option...

              I like #2 with the added tulle at the top. I think it's more of a flattering dress in general ... and think it looks great on you in the pics too! That's my two cents! I love #2!

                Thanks so much ladies! My mom likes the Pronovia dress while my SIL likes the San Patrick! Ahhhh!

                We added the brown sash, which I plan to use during the reception only. The sash looked much better in person, ironically it was actually a champagne color. I really love the bottom of this dress but its a couple $600 more than the San Patricks dress (which I found at RK bridal for $1000) plus the cost of all the alterations. Thats what has me the most conserned..

                Its the way I'm standing, the dress is actually bunched at the bottom, we didn't fix it when taking the picture. It does open up. I prefer the lace on the San Patrick dress though. I just want it all!

                  I've gotta say #2 as well...they're both absolutely gorgeous, but I think the cut of the 2nd dress is much more flattering on you.

                  Either way though you'll look great!!

                    I voted for #2 --- choosing more flattering over more unique, if that makes sense
