Choosing between two options.

Hi all! So my first post is about my dress dilemma.


I've fallen for the new WTOO Brides line. But the dilemma is that it looks like I will need to order without trying on first. We've recently had a date change, and now we'll be getting married in either November or December so my time line is rather short. It will be an late morning-early afternoon ceremony at our local church and an afternoon reception.


The options I am stuck choosing between are:


Genevive


http://watters.com/product.php?coll=wtoobrides&showid=917


Audrey


http://watters.com/product.php?coll=wtoobrides&showid=911


 


So I'm turning to getting others opinions. Are there any obvious things to consider with both dresses? Pros or Cons to either?


 


I'm feeling as if each has a different style even though they are similar. And now its kind of having me question how I want to look. Almost as if one evokes classic to me, the other elegance. I was thinking Genevive might be too much for the daytime and would fit me more if I was having an evening wedding. But then I keep looking at both and equally like each.

The style is exactly the same, except for the details (thats what I think it comes down to)...


I think both are absolutely beautiful and I would have a hard time too!


I love the simplicty yet stunning look of the Audrey- I especially like the top twist over the bust.  It would be great for morning/after noon wedding...


BUT- I also LOVE the detail and bling of the Genevive! Stunning! I especially love the back much more!!! This ones so nice haha who cares when you wear it ;)


Im so torn haha and know what you mean...


My advice: I have a dropped waist dress too- and they ARE NOT forgiving if you have curves. haha But be smart and buy the right size- or one bigger :) They don't fit the same to me and Im having a harder time in this style then any other.  So just be careful with the size you order- especially if you have hips.  I couldn't resist though- I love the look of a dropped waist!


- HMM :)

I LOVE the Genevive. I don't think it matters what time you are having your wedding, if you want it to be formal, go for it. ALSO it is the only (hopefully) wedding dress you will have, so pick the one you love the most. I would suggest trying on though to see what looks best on your body

I love the Genevive as well!


I don't think it matters what time of day your wedding is - my dress is incredibly simple and I'm having an evening wedding.

I loooove Audrey.  SO simple and elegant, you could go with some really spectacular jewelry and it would just have a very classic feel all around... very glam, but still understated.


(And if you like birdcage veils, I think you could wear one with that and the effect would be amazing!)

#1... id wear that anytime of the day... i LOVE it b/c of the bling on it... #2 is simple, yet beautiful... if you're a simple not too flashy kind of girl, go with #2... but if i were you, and i mean we only get married once (hopefully), id definitely in a heartbeat rock dress #1 IMO... =)


 


HTH... good luck!

I vote Genevive!  I love all the detailing!


The wedding I attended this last weekend was an afternoon wedding and the bride wore a gorgeous dress very similar to Genevive.  Everyone commented how stunning the gown was...not ONE of them even mentioned the level of elegance versus the time of day. 


I agree with PP's...the time of day doesn't matter so much.  It has more to do with the overall feel of the wedding.  If you're wanting a more casual wedding, then Genevive might be too much.

Thanks everyone!


 


So I found better pictures of them both:



Audrey:


Thanks everyone So I photo 46439-1


 


Genevive:


Thanks everyone So I photo 46439-2


 


After calling a few more bridal shops, it seems Audrey is a bit more within the budget. So I'm leaning a little more towards that style.
