Recently began the search for a wedding dress and I’ve got plenty of time as wedding is next summer I just hate being rushed. What do you think of both of these dresses? They’re both so different but I love both. The samples were a bit tight so please ignore back fat etc and imagine they fit perfectly 😂 for context, I’ll be 30 and it’s (hopefully) an outdoor wedding. Dress one

And dress two, please ignore my weird stance it’s a ballerina length with brocade pattern

2 for me also.

I love a bit of lace but I really like the length and shape of number 2.

Number 2.

Like them both, but 2 suite you better.

Two is beautiful. Very classy. And you could team it with fabulous shoes

Dress 2 length/bottom half, dress 1 top half.
Sorry feel like that’s probably not helpful!

I agree with PPs.

The first one will be annoying when walking around.

No 2 is lovely but the front neckline would make me pause for thought.

I prefer one. Love the lace and it really suits you.

I think 1 makes you look older than you are, I think it's the neckline.

So 2 for me, but it does make your torso look a bit long. Love the cut of the skirt on you though

I think they both make you look a little square of torso. Something with a little more of a sleeve - maybe a flutter sleeve or a fuller cap sleeve, and a slightly higher waist would look lovely.

I prefer how the first one hangs. You look taller and slimmer.

The second one is lovely on top but the ballerina length looks a little odd. But it might look a lot better if trimmed to your actual ballerina length, just the current length or camera angle makes it look like you have very short legs. We should be seeing a lot of high-heeled shoe, ankle and calf on a true ballerina length. Also, I know the size is wrong but can you be sure the dress will lie flat against your collar bone, it doesn't look right at the neckline currently.

First one. Second one makes you look square on top and the neckline is odd on you.

I prefer dress one - I’m really sorry but I don’t think the length of two is very flattering xx

2 it could be styled so beautifully with shoes and a accessories and looks fresh and modern yet still classic. 1 is nice but the lace looks a little old fashioned and not hugely attractive. The train would also get ratty outdoors very quickly as it doesn’t have the weight to glide over grass, paving etc.

One - makes you look much taller.

Dress 2 - looks beautiful

dazzlinghaze Thu 16-Jan-20 10:15:37

Dress 2!

Gogolego Thu 16-Jan-20 10:17:02

Love both but #2 looks classier and won't date as quickly when looking back at photographs.

This sort of shape would work really nicely on you -
