    If I had to pick one I would choose the first one, however, I do not like the belt, does that come off, maybe you could replace it with a cute rope belt or something, other than that I think its a super cute dress, that being said, in general I would probably keep shopping if you have the time only because I dont know if its for a wedding. We are similar height and age and I feel that the eggplant dress is too mature for someone our age, its more business than party wedding dress. Good Luck!

    Agreed with PP’s: the eggplant one is gorgeous (where did you get it?) and the more wedding-appropriate of the two – but a little out-of-season for July. Is there an option C?

    I’m not a huge fan of #2, but #1 is way too short for a wedding!

    #2 is completely inappropriate for the summer season. #1 is really cute and totally something that I would choose for a wedding, too!

    I like #1, but it’s a bit short for a church wedding. Agree with previous posters that #2, while lovely, would be better suited for a winter wedding. I think you’d be too warm!

    The printed one is adorable, but not for a church wedding. (Especially if the church is over-air conditioned, like my mom’s always seems to be.) It would be great for an outdoor ceremony & reception, though!

    Dress number 1 is very attention grabbing because of the colours and the short length.  I would save it for a back yard BBQ or something similar.  Dress number 2 looks like something that belongs in a wedding, and it’s very à la Kate Middleton.

    @ItWasntMe:  exactly what i was going to say.


    dress #1, i don’t hate it, but don’t love it either. i like how colorful it is, but the print is a little too busy for me and i think a simpler belt would work better 🙂

    I much prefer the 2nd one, but I don’t think there is anything wrong with wearing the first- if anything maybe slightly short for a conservative church wedding.

    I like both dresses but the first not for a wedding and the second because it is long sleeves i wouldn’t wear it in July.

    I think #1 is too short for a church and too loud for a wedding. It looks to me like a going-out-to-bars-and-clubs kind of dress, not something to wear to a wedding – but then again, you aren’t going to a black tie wedding. If you can swap the belt for something more neutral, it might work, esp. if you wore a cardigan or something over it and simple/conservative shoes and jewelry.

    I looooove the purple dress, but I know I’d be dripping with sweat if I tried to wear that in July. I would say shop for something more like the purple dress, but in a spring/summer version, with shorter sleeves or sleeveless – something more understated that you can wear to lots of events without worrying about whether it’s too short or bright.
