    I think the directionality of the ruching and the one shoulder would give more shape! Of the two, I much prefer the one-shoulder. Perfect for a Hawaii wedding! The strapless looks more like a bridesmaid dress.

    Both dresses have beautiful draping (much much better than the DB’s one), but I say #2

    #1 looks very pretty, but that draping across the stomach ventures into some dangerous territory: the faux pregnant belly look. not many people can pull this off without look pregnant, so I say if you can, then go for it!

    #2 has flattened draping (ruching), and this will hug your figure in a much more complimentary fashion. I think one shoulder gowns how their typically worn are pretty trendy, but this one is more reminiscent of the modernized Greek/Roman toga/chiton styles. I would say this look is pretty timeless!

    I like no.2 more as a dress, but I voted for no. 1 because I think it will flatter your figure more, (however, I tried on a very similar dress to dress one, it flatters me amazingly and I love it HOWEVER it didn’t feel likes a bride more likes a bridemaid, and I didnt want to wear that on my wedding date). In My Humble Opinion, one shoulder dress will fit better in a taller bride (the less distraction from the dress, the better for pettie size). I have a Destination Wedding too, looking at dress 2 it reminds me of the dress that I am DYING to try on next week very similar without the one shoulder, Sottero Midgley Clarice – I’m 5’3 and very similar shape to yours btw. 

    Sottero and Midgley – Clarice?

    Hope it helps! and good luck!

    I think the draping on the first dress might not work for your shape (even though you’re super slim etc).  I’m also a rectangle, fairly slim, and kind of short (5’5″).  I tried on my DREAM dress that has similar draping around the hips.  Unfortunately it just made me look shorter and blockier.  I think the dropped waist of #2 might work better.

    ETA: oops sorry, I missed the part where you already tried on #1.  If you loved how it looked, disregard my comment!  🙂

    As a one shoulder girl myself… that’s where my vote goes! But even without the one shoulder I like the rest of that dress better anyway.

    I like the David’s dress!  But anyway, I’m also a rectangle, and I’d think dress 1 will work with your shape better than #2.  Anything tight across the waist/hips just seems to accentuate the lack of a defined waist.  I’m also not a fan of trendy dresses, but that’s just me.  Think of how your dress will look when your kids show your wedding photo to their high school friends.  Will it still be pretty, or will it look like the equivalent to how we now feel about powder blue tuxedos?  I prefer classic styles for that reason.

    I actually like the DB dress more than either of the other two!

    But, if we need to choose between those two, I’d probably go with #2 because I think #1 would be unflattering in the waist area. However, I definitely prefer the top of #1 because I’m not a fan of one shoulder dresses. I don’t think they are too trendy though if that is your concern, they are just not my personal preference.
