i am stuck between two dresses! Please give me your opinion #1 or #2 1

We are a destination wedding and the location is going to be in front of a waterfall.

I initially came into the shop for #2 becuase I’m attracted to the bohemian laid back feel of the dress. However, the stylist pulled #1 and when I put it on it made me feel very bridal. I normally go for the bohemian, sporty, and laid back look on a daily basis so #1 is different then what I would’ve picked for myself. That could be a good thing I guess. Also, I imagined myself in a fitted wedding dress so I’m having a hard time accepting the a-line silhouette of #1. Another thing I’m considering is after the ceremony FH wants us to drive away on our motorcycle. I think #1 might be easier to get on the bike in. Ahhh I just don’t know!!!
#1: ivory, has a slit down the leg, a-line, very bridal, plunging neckline, longer train
#2: white, sleeve hangs off shoulder, shows more back, sheath, smaller train, laid back but more fitted, bohemian style
I have 7 days to decide as I’ve already purchased #1 and have been second guessing my decision. 😭😭😭

    I typically go for long sleeves but I think option 2 looks great on you.

    I like the first option better. I think it is sexy yet bridal and much more flattering than #2 but I can admit that style of dress is not my favorite lol.

    I prefer number 1 better, I feel like the second one looks like a summer maxi dress, sorry just an honest opinion

    I love them both, but I think you'll get some really incredible pictures with dress #1! I think the dress still feels boho in a romantic way, and looks like it's pretty comfortable as well.

    The high slit and trailing train will be perfect for cool pictures on the motorcycle and in front of the waterfall! 🤩

    Here are some inspiration pics:

    Dress #1 is my pick! I still get a boho vibe from the detail on the top, yet it still feels very bridal!

    They both look beautiful on you! Do think 1ay be the one since you felt more bridal in it. I had a similar experience where I tried a dress on I lovedddd but didn’t feel bridal until the one I ended up saying yes to. I do read on here that dress guilt is more common than I thought! I even questioned mine until I just went to try it on for alterations! Either dress you go with you’ll be beautiful!

    Both are gorgeous and you cannot go wrong!! I’m going to make things hard for you and pick #2 😂 it is so flattering to your figure and with a floral headpiece or bridal piece could make it feel more bridal. Whatever you decide, make sure you love it. That’s the only opinion that matters ❤️❤️❤️

    I think dress 1 in many ways could be the best of both worlds. It is bridal but has the boho vibe. You should honestly just pick whichever you feel like a bride in. If you do go back and choose 2 it won’t be the wrong choice, they both look great

    When you picture yourself at your wedding, which dress do you see yourself wearing? Don’t overthink, just picture it. Whichever one you “see” yourself in is probably the right call Smiley smile

    Both are pretty. The most important question that was never addressed: which one did you not want to take off? That is how most brides say they knew it was the one.
