    Hello ladies!

    I am in a need of honest opinions here please! 


    I am getting married next year in beautiful Costa Rica on the beach !!! Something i always dreamed about :)


    The dress i would want needs to be light and airy and beach appropriate! 


    I found 2 beautiful gowns, both by Watters !


    As with any other bride, i want to look my very best on my wedding day and look amazing for the pictures !

    I am trying to figure out which dress is best for my body and flatters me the most considering all other factors. 


    Here are pictures of dress# 1. 

    FYI- It needs to be taken in bust, tummy and perhaps hips? Also, i am fixing the neckline to be more of a "sweetheart" and getting rid of that floppy material, so take all that into the account! Also the belt is optional! Belt or NO belt?


    Dress# 2, also needs alterations. 


    FYI- dress # 1 is with a long flowy train and dress 2 is more traditional A style gown.


    I appreciate some honest feedback! 

    thank you!!!

    I think dress 1 is more flattering on you as you have a great body and it suits this more fitted style! both are really pretty though! I like it with the belt... But it's not necessary! Pretty either way.

    I would love to give my opinion but a lot of us can't view attachments - maybe edit the post with the pics in the post? =)

    My vote will be for dress 2. I love how it's a bit more flowy and I love the lace pattern of it! Whichever one you chose will be beautiful on you I'm sure!!


    Good luck!

    I said "yes" again to the love of my life at Grand Coral Beach Club, Playa del Carmen, Mexico on our 4th anniversary - October 20, 2015

    Dress 1 shows your figure off more, but dress 2 looks great on you as well.

    What "look" are you going for?

    Also, is one dress lighter than the other?

    That also helped me make my decision...

    I love him & he loves me, we'll be married by the sea.

    Both are great options... I personally favor dress #2... but go with you instinct. Your husband won't be disappointed with either one.

    I vote for dress #2, no belt.  You look amazing in both but I think the second one is more the vibe you described.

    Both are gorgeous I personally love the softness of the second dress. Also a silly tip my sister in law gave me is to make sure you sit down in your dress! It would be awful to come to dinner and you can't sit! At the end of the day it is what you feel most comfortable and beautiful in! Whatever choice you go with you can't go wrong!

      Thanks Ladies!!!


      Also, forgot to add, both dresses are super light. They are from the same designer (Watters) and made from 100%silk and organza. 

      I find it easy to move around in both.. The second one seems to have a longer train which would need to be bustled i presume. 


      Dress# 1 also remind me a bit of the waves because of the ruffles, so thats why i was attracted to it. Dress # 2, seem to be a bit more traditional. 

      Based on my personality and etc. i think, i am more dress# 1 type of a gal. The dress is more fun and flirty. My wedding is more of a rustic feel wedding.

       I was just concerned more about which fit suits my body best. I am not exactly hourglass figure and wanted to make sure i still can pull of this dress! I guess im just a bit indecisive these days :)

      Than you all!
