This dress or this one?

You might already know from my posts that our wedding is a very simple and intimate one. That is, registry office and a champagne lunch with 16 of our nearest and dearest. So I want a dress to match the occasion.

I bought the first dress in the sale and really like it but I've started looking again and have ordered the second one to try on at home.  Which do you like best and why? imageimage

    The first one. It has more of a weddingy look to it. Plus I prefer the straight hem on it.

    I love the second.... the first is beautiful in its simplicity, and the lace top looks quite fine, I just prefer the beading and hemlines on the second, feels more 'special' - you won't know until you try it on and see how it feels. 

     

    Also Its a a hint of gatsby / bloomsbury too which fits with champagne reception :)

  • I prefer the second. It feels more (like Mrs B2b3 said) special! There is a little more to it. Even though you are having a small wedding, this is still your wedding and having something with a bit more something I think is nice. 

    I think the first one is nice but it doesn't have the same effect I don't think. 

  • I prefer the first. Personally I'm not a fan of the scalloped hem. But both are lovely.

    Let us know which one you choose!

    I like the second, I prefer the hem line. As some others have said I think it makes it look more special.

    both are beautiful though, which one are you swaying towards? 

    Let us know what you decide xx

    I prefer the first one.  It's more timeless and elegant in my opinion.  I love the fine lace overlay and that it is sheer across the chest. Xx

    They're both lovely - I think what would really help is seeing a pic of you in each of them!

    From those pics I prefer the 2nd. I prefer the lace details and scalloped hem and sleeves. But however I can't really see the details on the body so it is quite difficult to tell.

     

  • The first one definitely. It's so beautiful and elegant- perfect for your wedding.

    I like them both- to me the first looks more 'weddingy' and the second more like a posh evening dress- so I guess it depends what look you want?

    I prefer the first one I like the simplicity of it but it still looks very bridal, but best way to judge would be pictures of you in both of them because you will make them look different from the models.

    Loving the detail with the second!

    Oooooh lots of votes for both dresses!

  • The first one gets my vote. Looks more bridal. 

  • The first one gets my vote.  I love the how classic and elegant it is. The lace on top is very pretty. Both would suit your wedding by the sounds of it though. Good luck making the decision! x

    First one! It looks really elegant but still like a wedding dress, i think the 2nd just looks like a nice dress. What are you planning for hair and shoes etc?

  • MrsJ2017MrsJ2017 Posts: 3,017

    It was tough, I liked the belt on the first, but Im voting second just because it has more detail and I do like simple dresses but when I tried them on they felt plain on me.

    Theyre both really nice though and whichever you go for you cant go wrong.

  • MrsNH17MrsNH17 Posts: 524 New bride

    I think the first one! But both are gorgeous! I think it depends what you want - the first is gorgeous and more bridal I think, but the second is a little bit more detailed and therefore like someone else said maybe a bit more gatsby inspired so if you wanted something a bit dressy that could bit a nice option? Both lovely and sure you will look gorgeous in both but deffo need to decide with them on! Good luck!
