@danijay:  Definitely option one. Option two is lovely but it looks like something you could easily wear outside of a wedding. Not that it’s not bridal but it’s just not as bridal as the first one. Plus the sleeves on option one look pretty well ventilated so you shouldn’t get too hot.

So this is truly a matter of preference and how you want to look/feel at your wedding. I love option 2. It’s sleek and elegant, it can be dressed up or dressed down. I had a crepe wedding dress so obviously I am bias. 

I am not a fan of the lace top and chiffon bottom, it’s beautiful and the back is lovely, but I don’t always love how it cuts people in half. However, it is the more romantic option and it might be cooler as well if you’re worried about being hot. Crepe can be warm but I think it depends on the quality of the fabric. I think you would look beautiful in both! 

Since these are from Etsy (I know nothing about buying a dress on Etsy), do either of these sellers have return options? It might be worth it to try both on and see how they make you feel.

I got my dress from Etsy and it looks almost exactly like your option 1 (designer ELDesignStudio)! It can be hard when you can’t try things on and return them (mine had a no returns policy) but I am really glad I took the leap and ordered from Etsy. My dress was perfect. I really like both options you posted and agree the high-low cut on the second makes it slightly more casual which sounds perfect for what you are going for.

I love the 1st dress, but both are really pretty. I think the lace/tulle would hide any scuffs or stains better if you’re wearing it twice, and also be cooler if it’s warm (depending on where it is in Aus).

Personally, I like option 1. However, it’s what will make you feel beautiful.

I love Option A!!  It is so romantic!  Option B is pretty too, but doesn’t scream bridal to me.

I really like Option B! It’s so sleek, modern, sexy and is definitely still bridal IMO, I think you would look stunning in it!

I love the first option and I also think it is the better option if you are worried about being too hot. Have you tried on crepe before? Some people don’t like the way it looks on them. Tulle will be more forgiving in the undergarments department.

@danijay:  I love both dresses bc theyre along the styles i would go for!

Bee, I think I can really picture you in option B, though! Its so extravagent and I love the look so much, and who cares if its a bit formal, its your one day!

And as far as the heat…it think 75 is perfect! Maybe bc Im used to like 90’s weather as an average in summer. The dresses are similar in that one isnt short or doesnt appear to be of dramatically different material, so if you really love option B, I say definitely go for it!!
