I think the first one is really cute on you.  Maybe there will be a fun compromise if you keep trying some on, both are really nice, but I think the first one is really fun and stylish

Love the first one, but what sort of wedding are you planning? If it’s something different than the short, cute, flirty dress is PERFECT!  If you are planning something more traditional then I would say keep looking.

Just curious…is it a UK thing to have bridal shops closed on Sundays?  Weekends tend to be busiest here in the states since that is when most people can make it in.  You might also want to see if any shops could accommodate an evening appointment if that works better for your freelance schedule. 

You will find the perfect dress and look stunning!

LOVE dress #1. Dress #2 is obviously too short (are you very tall?) and you look uncomfortable in it. I’m with Sadie, though. You don’t want your wedding and your dress to clash.

I really like the first dress on you!! It is very flirty and flattering ๐Ÿ™‚ I also think that it depends on where your wedding is going to be held. I’m not sure it would work so well for a traditional church wedding, but for something different or outdoors it would be perfect!!!

The first one is by far my favorite, the second one is kind of a funny length.  You look stunning in the first one, I love it!

i think the first one looks incredible on you!  It looks perfect for a courthouse wedding & afternoon canapes & cocktails!  I lived in London for two years and my fiance is English, where are you having your reception?

Hey hey!

I agree with everyone else…the answer is truly in your facial expression…look how happy you look in the first one! Def the first but def NOT the second…if you dont want the first one i would say keep looking!

On another note…I also lived in London for 4 years…well kind of a suburb…in Gerrards Cross in Buckinghamshire..right next to the high street so i know exactly what that is! Are you in downtown London?

Are you getting married by the ocean?  If that’s the case I’d go with #1.  I think #2 is more traditional.  I think that if you try on more dresses you may fall in love with dresses you would have never thought you would.  That’s what happened to me.  I ended up with a lace wedding dress and thought I’d go down the aisle with a Cinderella ballgown dress.

The first one is super cute.  I know how dress shopping can be stressful.
