    At this point in time I have it narrowed down to 2 dresses (who knows... it may change again as I still have a year to go). Please let me know what you think... any comments/thoughts/preferences would be great! I think I am leaning towards the 1st one... I love the extra details and the back. But it costs a substantial bit more and there is something about the 2nd one that I like but can't put my finger on. I have been asking for opinions from fam/friends and its pretty much split 50/50... ah I'm too indecisive. Anyways... tell me what you think! Thanks

    Dress 1: Maggie Sottero Treasure

    The dress in store was too big... so no good pictures. It's a fun lace-up, corset type

    Dress 2: Gallina from DB
    -Front: (we added the pink ribbon which would match the BM... it'll be tacked better if we go with it)

      I think I like the second one...it's more simple...it actually kinda looks like mine. So I may be biased!

        I think I like the first one better - the second one is pretty, but the first one looks like it fits you like a glove - very flattering!

          They are both beautiful, but I like the fit of the 2nd one. But I think it would look better with a thicker sash??

            Hard choice, but i think the first one fits you nicer

                I vote for dress#1. What style are you going for? Dress #2 to me is simple and elegant. Dress #1 stands out a little more. The first dress complements you well.

                  A tough choice as both dresses are really pretty. But, I think dress #1 gets my vote. I love the detail & it looks amazing on you!

                  If you really love it but the price is holding you back, how about trying to wait for a sample sale? Since you have a year to go I'm thinking that its very likely to be on sale at some point. A dress that I was interested in was in the designers Fall 2006 collection & was part of a sample sale this past summer. It was half off!!!!

                    I like them both, but #2 better. I was looking at that one at DB (after I already bought mine)...love it!

                      I love that first one! It looks gorgeous on you and the lace and detail on the gown are fab.
