First time posting on this board! Some quick background info: I'm Laura and my FI is Brian - we are having our main wedding ceremony and reception here in San Diego. My parents are hosting a Chinese banquet reception ~3 weeks later in San Francisco (where I'm from, and where 99% of all my relatives live).
I'm having trouble choosing between these two dresses and wanted your input! The thing is, Brian and I are paying for the main wedding in SD ourselves, so I'm on a budget.
This first dress is silk with embroidery and will cost around $218 incl shipping and custom measurements (from eaststore.com)
This second dress is the same style, but I really like this fabric.. it looks a little more modern and simple IMO. It would only cost $118 total - also custom made (efushop.com).
My mom likes the embroidered ones because it's more "special" for a wedding. I know it's not a huge price difference, but I doubt I'm going to ever wear it again, so why pay more?
What do you ladies think?
