My wedding is going to be in an outdoor garden and the reception will be in a tented patio/inside. I’ve been shopping for lace gowns and below are 2 i’m really liking so I need some advice:
Do you think this dress is appropriate for an outdoor wedding? part of me thinks it may be too formal. I tried it on and I really liked it, but I think I held back because I wasn’t sure it was for my wedding vision. I love the mermaid silhouette.
Or should I stick with something more like this? This is originally what I was looking for – it’s all over lace with beading and pearls. it’s very pretty in person but this picture is horrible. i also like it a lot. It would be all white or ivory (white/ivory belt and flower too – not the brown)

Welcome to the Hive! That dress is beautiful and perfect for an outdoor wedding, both of them are really. I don’t think that you can go wrong with either dress.

I honestly LOVE the second dress in lace. My fiance and I are looking at venues and I’m positive that I want a garden wedding just like you. I think the lace dress would look great especially in an outdoor garden. Lace dresses are amazing.

Both of these dresses are gorgeous, and I don’t think either one is too formal for a garden wedding. The best way for you to decide between them is to realize that, although they both are very figure hugging, the second dress flows from top to bottom in one, graceful, fluid line. The first dress will cut your body into three definitive sections, with a major focus on your hips, especially from the back. Although you may find that you look amazing in both of gowns and may have the height and figure to pull of either look, those facts may still help you to decide which dress you prefer.

Both dresses are gorgeous but the detail in the first one is just to die for. I showed the girls in my office and they agree! 🙂

Both are gorgeous. I don’t think you could go wrong with either! I LOVE the detail on the non maggie but I also love the straps on the maggie.

Thanks you for the responses!
I’m so indecisive.. I love both dresses but they’re very different! I might lean more towards the Maggie dress (#1) if it’s fitting for the outdoor garden ceremony!
@sooner365 I don’t know of an AZ Bridal but I went to MB Bride and they have a ton of dresses and they were great there.
