The first one is gorgeous!! I like the second one but not for a bride.

Re: Claire Pettibone Raven Wedding Dress

I think the material is beautiful but I don't care for the plunging necklines.  I don't like strapless and I don't like these deep V necklines.  I'm more of a bateau neckline or a cap sleeve type of gal.  I don't enjoy seeing everybody's skin, even if the models here aren't bursting out all over, I am not digging the design in the front.

I like them both but prefer the second.

It's beautiful but I'm not a flower lover at all so it wouldn't work for me, personally.

I totally get what you're saying because I'm not really a flower lover either and tend to avoid floral clothing.  I don't understand at all why I like this dress so much; the second one in particular. Weird.

I enjoyed a similarly romantic setting myself Woman Wink

In my office with my notary boss officiating. When the boss was done with his short spiel I thanked him and announced that 'Mark and I have written our own vows..."

I was kidding but the look of panic on Mark's face was priceless!

 

I think the dress and especially the intricate overlay is lovely but I'd prefer a different neckline. I'm not so modest but I just think it would be more elegant....
