    Etiquette Snob here… lol

    Both are nice outfits.

    So far the description sounds semi-formal…

    The other clue would be in the time of the Ceremony… and the setting for the Wedding & Reception.

    Definitely the short dress. I think you would be overdressed in the long one.

    What time of day?  What sort of venue for the reception?

    Do you know what their bridesmaid dresses look like? I voted the short dress but I would be a little worried since it is an actual bridesmaid dress…wouldn’t want to end up matching the bridal party, lol.

    Two PM and I agree, I’d go with the short.  Long would have been good for late afternoon or evening… and if the Reception Venue was upscale (ie Hotel Ballroom)

    Hope this helps,

    Agree with PPs, go for the short, the long is too formal.
