     I love the one with the straps! However, if you are concerned about not looking “bridal” enough for FI’s family then why not wear the tulle one with a belt (maybe blingy?) for the ceremony and switch to the one with straps for the reception? I would do this so I could wear both ;). If you are set on only one then I think the strap one is the way to go!

    If looking “bridal” is important go with #2 – white with the full skirt. The other, while pretty, doesn’t exactly seem bridal, due to speghetti straps, color, cut – it looks more like a nice evening gown.

    The first one compliments your body the best. Neither wow me though :/

    The first looks soo much nicer! I think if you pair it with a flower crown and mantilla veil it will have a beautiful bohemian but still bridal feel 🙂

    I love the first one. What about adding some fancy accessories to dress it up?

    to be honest, im not sure if im sold on either. maybe the first one with alterations… take up and do something with the waistline (bit of lace detail perhaps), get rid of a bit of the bulkiness in that joining seam and possibly some thicker straps?

    @Obow:  #2 is not complimenting you and I’m not sure why–maybe it’s this photo, your posture, or maybe it’s not fitted to you.

    But based on your description, I’d for sure use dress #1. What accessory will make you feel elegant and special that day? The right pair of shoes? A simple, flowy veil? Sure, you can always add something at the waist, lace is an interesting idea. Bling or a flower are the standard options and lace is something a little different.

    Since you are a DIYer, a tour through a fabric store will giv eyou ideas.

    @Obow:  I usually love tulle ball gowns, but for some reason that one doesn’t seem right. Your body looks so thin in dress 1 but not as flattering in dress 2. Is dress 2 fitted? It seems like the bodie should be tighter to accent your waist.

    As an Internet stranger, I think the 1st one looks more “you”:)

    @Obow:  I think that #1 is more flattering on you (with the suggestions made above ie a lace belt, perhaps wider straps although I like the straps as they are) and it also “goes” more with the aesthetic you’re trying to achieve.  I think #2, while a nice dress, isn’t at all bohemian or vintage.

    A very ong very simple veil, or a flower and feather headpiece with a romantic, deconstructed up-do, a lace belt (or lace applicae at the waist) and either dangly earrings or a “statement” necklace and I think it will pull together beautifully!
