Please help I cannot decide between these two gowns. I am getting married in HI in July and want to have a simple feel with tropical flowers, periwinkle will be the color of the bridesmaid dresses. Time is ticking and I need to make a decision fast as Im getting wed in July.

one dress is silk charmuese the other is lace. Lace dress is on link below. Thanks for your help! I wasnt allowed to take pics of me in the lace gown, this is a random photo found online

    Did you try both on?

    Is that you in the top picture or both pictures?

    I think you look great in the silk gown. I like the lace gown too but lace usually seems formal to me.

    I vote #2 for sure!

    You look killer in #1! But I think the lace fabric will be fresher and brighter looking in your photos, and really pop against the periwinkle and tropical flowers. Silk charmeuse might be more likely to show sweat/humidity spots, and might look a little more formal than you're going for IMO.

    But they're both beautiful gowns!

    I kinda agree with kris. As phenomenal as you look in #1, I think it might show sweat. #2 is Beautiful - I wouldn't wear it because the back is too low and I need a bra to feel comfortable (not sure if that is a deciding factor for you). I also like it better with the knot instead of the bow.

    congrats ~ good luck

    They are both beautiful. I think it depends on what kind of feel you're going for. The silk one makes me think very formal, elegant, swanky, evening wedding. The lace makes me think a little more laid back (like suits instead of tuxes), sweet, romantic, feminine, afternoon wedding.

    The lace one is beautiful. I would pick that one.

    I love the first dress, but I think the second one is more suited for an HI destination wedding.

    Both dresses are gorgeous, and perfect for the occasion! #2 is more informal, and if you think of tropical flowers, there is no better way to decorate your hair than with Orchids! Perhaps like this one: http://forprincessbride.com/store/product512.html or like these pair: http://forprincessbride.com/store/product548.html. Enjoy your wedding - it will be fabulous!!!
