      OK Ladies- I am having a HUGE problem choosing a dress and i thought I would ask for your input... I am between two dresses both Maggie Sottero... The first is the Vanessa- I love it , it looks good on me and it is SOO SOO comfortable ( i feel like I'm in sweatpants in it... i love it) but I have worn SOO many dresses in that same style/shape so everyone who sees it on me is like "its so you" and yes it is "So me" BUT I dont want it to look like everyother dress I've ever worn.... which may be where my problem is...  The other one is the Marion,- To me it feels more bridal, I feel like a real bride, I think it also looks just good as the vanessa but its just not as comfortable... but it isn't something I would typically wear...  So my question- Is it more important to feel comfortable OR to feel bridal?! Should I go with a shape that I tend to gravitate towards for other occasions because it looks good on me and works OR should I go with something that is out of my comfort zone but makes me feel more like a bride?! Either way i havent had that "THIS IS MY DRESS" moment and now I'm thinking I never will... Time is ticking down for me and I Really can't choose... Hopefully you guys can help... I'm so torn I'm considering asking my fiancee but I want him to be surprised... Posted ImagePosted Image

      I like dress #2, the sweetheart neckline is so flattering. I never had a this is 'the dress' feeling, and I too was tempted to ask my fianc©, I ending up ordering the dress I thought I liked, but couldn't stop thinking about another one. The next day I called the store before the order had been sent out and ordered the dress I couldn't get off my mind. If you don't have a 'this is my dress feeling', go with your gut, it 's always right...even if it's different than all of our favorite.

          Both dresses are beautiful. I'm one of those brides that wanted to be beautiful but also wanted to be comfortable. Comfort was very important to me because I would be wearing the dress for at least 6 hours. If you're really uncomfortable in the second dress I'd say don't get it. I tried on a beautiful dress that was absolutely gorgeous but in the end I knew I would be so tired from being uncomfortable that I wouldn't have thoroughly enjoyed my own wedding despite making me feel like a bride and all; and that was not an option for me! So I looked for something more comfortable and found the "this is it" dress. You can have them alter the first dress into a sweetheart neckline which I think would make it more beautiful and hence a little bit more "different" than what you usually wear. Plus if you're wearing a veil it will make the look different than usual. Having said that, if you're not too thrilled about either of those choices, I'd say keep looking. Maggie Sottero has so many more dresses that have some similarities but might give you that "I love it" feeling. If you keep coming back to either of the two above, then get the dress that keeps popping up in your head. 

           

          Good luck.

                First of all. You should LOVE your dress. You may not have a tearjerking experience, I didn't, but you should without a doubt be in LOVE with your dress. That being said I say dress #1 and here's why. I've personally tried on dress #2 and I also loved it but my concern was that with the slightest ocean breeze that the slit in front may open wider than I wanted. Don't get me wrong I want to give my new husband a lil show but that comes later in privacy and not on the beach during our ceremony. Whatever you choose make sure you LOVE it and not just putting up with a dress. Best of luck to you and you better let us know what you end up doing!

                  I'm so thrilled to have finally found my dress! I fell in love with Allure 8859 before even trying it on. I tried it on as my first gown out of 7 that I picked and no other dressed made me feel as giddy as this one. I'm so relieved to finally have a better picture of what I will look like on our wedding day. The best part is that it will arrive in 2 weeks! Here's a pic of the dress, as soon as mine comes in I will post pictures
