The second dress not only suits you better but looks much more stylish/expensive imho. Beautiful lace.  

I do think, though  , that  it would be improved by having the bodice lined . Apart  from just  not really liking see through or  pretend see through  on wedding dresses, I  think it often makes the wearer look ‘bottom heavy’ 

On second read, , I see you really want the Paloma and your only fear is  that it  looks ‘boring ‘ . I don’t think looks boring at all, a bit more casual perhaps . Again,   I think it would look better with a lined bodice .

Out of these two I think the Demetrious looks much better on you. I prefer the lace and the neckline and I think it shows off your figure beautifully.  I think it is a more elegant looking gown.

Of the two I prefer the second one, it feels a bit more special, but I am not in love with either of them. I think you need to go with what is more comfortable in the end because it is a long day and while I haven’t worn a wedding dress yet, I have worn a ton of other gowns for pageants over the years and the irritation from sequence/beads only gets worse the longer you wear it in most cases.

Out of these two I like the first one better, the demetrios looks like it’s all one BIG piece of a lace and shortens you a whole lot compared to the first dress.

Of these two I like the first, but I really feel like you can get something better.

The second dress fits your figure better and is more flattering.

The second dress looks the best on you and I think it looks like a much nicer dress than the first. Weddings generally mean the bride will be much fancier than everyone else and I highly doubt anyone is going to say, oh that dress was too much for a summer outdoor wedding.

I like the neckline and the cut of the lace on the first one but feel it looks more casual compared to second.  The second looks of better on you and I like the style of the dress overall.  I dont love the unlined bodice of the second one though.  Overall both are very pretty.

 Second dress looks much better. The first one isn’t flattering in the chest area, and the belt really cuts you off. I’m also not a fan of lace over blush/nude linings. I personally think that’s much more tacky/unrefined than beading, and I only say that because you had mentioned that being a concern.

I agree with most – the first dress just doesn’t flatter you as nicely as the second one does!
