    They both look like they would be flattering on you –  have you had the chance to try the dress on in either color?  I always tend to go for red but in this case I can see the ‘pros’ of both!

    I can see the red one shortened and worn with a jacket later…. So cute. I think if you are brave enough to break away from the mold, go with the red dress!

    I would be inclined to go with the silver, personally. Partly because I’ve worn brightly coloured maxi dresses to other people’s weddings, and partly because when I’ve seen brides change into “ordinary” dresses during their reception, it can be disappointing when they’re in non-bridal colours. I knew a bride who changed into a dark blue cocktail dress after dinner, and, pretty as it was as a dress, she didn’t look like a bride anymore, just like a guest. 

    Also, I wouldn’t shorten it afterwards – it’s very much a maxi dress. Just dress it down with flip flops and chunky jewellry, and it’s a really pretty dress for summer evenings.
