To be honest, I liked the David's Bridal gown better upon first glance. I actually thought it was the more expensive of the two until I read the complete post. The David's Bridal gown just looks more like a wedding dress. It goes to show that you don't need a "designer" gown to look stunning on your wedding day.

I like the David’s Bridal gown much better, as it look so much more elegant and classy. The J. Crew gown looks very casual and even a bit sloppy to me.

It's really hard to tell one costs so much more than the other.

I like the cut of the 1st one but love the DB material and "feel"

ditto above. You don't need a designer gown to feel beautiful on your wedding day.

PS: re: your comment on the blog- Please post away. Thank you for even considering it!

I actually have the DB version and I wanted the Princepessa one to begin with. The DB one is indeed very lovely.

I wore the DB dress to my wedding this past september... Not only is it stunning and slimming but it has POCKETS!!! I am a practical person first and a girl who loves glamour second, but with the price point, pockets, and effortless beauty of this dress, i got it all! Also, I'd love to gift my dress to a frugal bride, size 8!

I am actually in love with the David's Bridal version and since it is no longer in stores, I'm searching the internet for a used version! Anybody have one?

If you had tried on both of them you would know immediately which one is nicer...The Davids Bridal gown is itchy and does not fit well on someone who is a models build. On the other hand, the Principessa is 100% silk and fits like a dream right off of the rack. So yes, you could get the polyester version and save your wallet or you could get the jcrew gown and feel just like a princess.
