We are having a small ceremony and reception. I really want to be myself. My man proposed to me with the most beautiful salt and pepper diamond ring. The whole white dress just doesn’t appeal to me. The reception is most likely going to consist of a murder mystery dinner and will have an overall James Bond vibe.
My colors are black and silver. I need opinions:
Black velvet and lace dress, accented with silver jewelry and sparkly heals
OrSilver sequin dress with black heals and accessories.The last picture is my ring so you can get a feel for my personality shining through.

    I love salt and pepper diamonds! I have a gray stone, and I love that it's unique.

    I'm not going to help much because I think both those dresses are gorgeous and I totally love your theme/vibe. Sounds like a wedding that would be so much fun!

    I will say that while I love the first dress and think its perfect for your theme, I think you'll stand out more in the second silver sequin dress and it's more attention grabbing. Black is sexy but you'll blend in more in photos and such, and it's your wedding so I think you should stand out. Even if you don't love being the center of attention, people should be focusing on you and able to find you in a crowd easily, and you should definitely stick out somewhat in photos.

    I'm going with the minority here. Both dresses are stunning but any excuse to wear sequins and be full on glam has my vote! It's definitely not a dress that blends in the crowd. As the bride, you should stand out if that's what you want. Ultimately though, you should go with the dress that makes you feel the most beautiful.

    How exciting! Good luck with yours! I’m so ecstatic about the reception now, I was dreading planning it until we come up with the theme.
