    I’m a fan of the black one. It looks fantastic.

    The teal one is also gorgeous, but that bubble thing at the bottom would drive me crazy.

    while i love the black one, something about it feels lingerie-ish to me to wear to a wedding?? I’m not sure what it is, but I feel like the teal one is much more wedding guest like.  Don’t get me wrong, you look great in both, but I think that I personally would feel too sexy in the black one for a wedding, and be self conscious.

    I think they’re both cute dresses for going out, but, in my opinion, they’re a little short for a wedding.  I usually try to stick to something not more than an inch or two above knee length.

    I think the teal one is a bit fancy for a vineyard wedding, as opposed to a hall wedding.  And I also think your body is bangin in the lace dress.  Go with the lace!  Keep your hair down, can you maybe do some waves at the bottom?  And go with smokey eyes and light lips for the makeup!  HOT!

    I have to agree that the black one looks a little too lingerie like to me. Looks fantastic on you but maybe for a night on the town, not for a wedding.

    Both dresses look fantastic on you! Though I don’t want to offend in any way, so please don’t take it that way, but I feel like they are both a little short for an afternoon wedding. Maybe it’s because you have long legs, but I feel like if they were a few inches above the knee you could totally pull either one off.

     @hisgoosiegirl: no way girl, your legs are model long in those pics! 🙂 Ugh, I know. Shopping for an outfit as a guest to a wedding is almost as stressful as when I picked out my wedding dress…actually probably more so because it only took me 2 stores and like 10 dresses tops! You’re right though, summer dresses always come in the wrong colours for weddings. But seriously, both those dresses are awesome for a night out, so I’d keep them anyway, lol. 😉

    I prefer the teal but I do agree that I sort of think they’re too short for a wedding.

    The black one for some reason looks like maybe something to wear in the bedroom, I don’t know why so I would go with the teal but you look amazing in both

    i think that because the teal one is more “fancy” looking, it doesn’t seem too short, i think because it looks almost like it could have been purchased as a BM dress (but like you said, not purple so doesn’t look like you’re trying to be a BM) it doesn’t look like omg you’re a slut short but that’s my opinion.  Do you know what anyone else is wearing? You also don’t want to show up in something made of a taffeta material if others are wearing sundresses at the vineyard.
