I think it really depends on if you want a strapless dress or a dress with sleeves. I think they are both beautiful, but I do like the second one without the lace jacket. The first dress is stunning and love the shape and lace work! The second dress is slightly more simple than the first, but just as gorgeous.
Both very pretty. i personally like the first one better with that lace detail! however, the second one has the lace jacket and when you remove it looks like a totally different dress so it gives you more options. i say choose whichever one you are more comfortable in!
Can you try both on? Every bride’s body is so different! Both are beautiful but #1 might not look as good on a busty bride (too revealing?) or on a pear-shape or square-shape figure—probably best for a symmetrical hourglass figure, if you think that describes your figure best. But it’s so hard to tell in a photo! #2 is an A-line which is flattering on different silhouettes and I love that you get two looks with the jacket.
