    honestly, i think you really don’t know what looks right on you until you start trying dresses on.  i’m also petite (5’2″) and was worried about having “too much dress” when i started looking.  but, once i started putting them on and seeing what style worked best with my body (for me, not lace, no beating, sweatheart neckline, etc), my ideas about what was the perfect dress changed.

    that being said, i think both dresses are lovely, and would work for any of the venues you mentioned.  i would love to see pictures of you in the dresses!

    If you’re going for more relaxed then I would go with Dress 2, or you can do Dress 1 but minus the neck thingy (that seems to add a bit of formal feel to it).

    My best advice is go somewhere and try some styles on-.  If your man wants input bring him along. Its not like he will see the final product.  Take a rainy day and go to davids bridal and try styles.

    I agree with the other bees about taking a day to try on styles! I consider myself petite (5’4”) and I’m plus size so I really had no idea what any of the dresses I liked would look on me.

    I ended up with a dress that I had my eye on, but I was surprised that some of the dresses I had favorited at DB’s just looked blah on me. For instance, I thought I would really like a sweatheart neckline, but I’m large chested and it did not do anything for me, it looked bad actually (with the exception of one Wtoo dress that an a deep sweatheart neckline).

    oh, and! if you want your man’s input on dresses than either take him with you or don’t make a decision until he sees the pictures. i know that seems obvious but i didn’t even think about and after i showed him the pictures i ended up making a change that i stressed about, which i could have avoided.

    I personally like both.  I agree w/ the other Bees that you should try on different dress styles.  I would also look in your closet to see to help detemine what style dress you would be interested in trying.  I’m 5’4 and slim so I knew my dress would either be A line, tea length, or a sheath since that’s my personal style.  My gurl is actually a sheath dress w/ a chiffon train.  My reception dress is an off the should tea length dress.

    BTW- I’m 41 and Fiance is 45.  Age is really nothing but a number so where what makes you feel and look beautiful.

    Good Luck!!!!
