    Both choices are lovely on you but #2 is my choice - elegant while youthful and bubbly!

    Both are stunning, but I'm partial to the train on the 2nd.

    I think dress 1 is a perfect choice. The structure of the dress frames you much better and even tho dress 2 is beautiful, it doesn't look as elegant as dress 1. You can get a really long and wide veil to give you the long train effect.

    so in summary lol, your body looks like it owns the 1st dress to me and dress 2 looks pretty but it's not for you

    The train on the 2nd is stunning, but I don't know that you can beat the fit of the first dress. It seems it was made for you! Either way, you will look gorgeous. Good luck!

    Oh my gosh, I'd be torn too. They both look so beautiful on you. I'd go with second one as it'll be hot and it looks like the second one gives you a little more breathing room lol. Either way, you look stunning!

    Ditto! My thoughts exactly. The first one has a better look and structure to it from the front and the back. Additionally, it fits the venue better. I think the train on the 2nd dress is swaying opinions. But after walking down the aisle and turning to face your FH, the train won’t be seen in that exact manner again (except when fluffed out for pics). So instead, I’d use a long detailed veil with dress 1 to give you that same effect from the back. The majority of the night you’ll be bustled, so I’d go with the better looking and better structured dress.

    They're both sooo pretty! I love the first because the shape it gives but the back on the second is to die for 😍😍 which is more comfortable to you

    Dress #2.. That Train is to die for. Both look great on you. Question to yourself, how will the boning feel after wearing the dress all day?
