Thank you cs2thecox & Jessica Rabbit ! I appreciate they're quite different photos so it's hard to compare really, and being such different styles it really doesn't help, as I think they're both beautiful in their own ways .
I really am grateful for both of your feedback <3
I did toy with the idea of two dresses, but when I think about it I feel sad that I wouldn't get to wear the second one for that moment when M sees me for the first time, and I guess that kind of gives me my answer.
By softer veil do you mean a more flowy tulle and something just a bit lighter? I do like the idea of my veil being a little unusual, but i think I'll be avoiding lace details so I think anything like that will be a little unusual in comparison.
The one thing that really put me off the slim fitted dress was the fact on the lead up to and on the day I would really have to watch what I eat, and dancing might be a little harder, wheras in the new dress I don't have to worry about any of that which feels quite freeing x
Also I've sorted the rest of the photos so have a little laugh
