The second one is very pretty, but I don’t think it’s very practical for a warm wedding outdoors on the beach.  I think you’d be more likely to get overheated or to have trouble walking through the sand.

I like the first one, but I do think it is a bit too revealing.  However, I’ve seen lots of similar styles that don’t show quite so much cleavage.  I’m actually considering getting a similar flowy type of dress for my wedding.

I was thinking the same thing as some previous posters – the second dress might not logistically be the best for a beach ceremony. With that in mind I’d pick the first one.

2nd dress!!!! I love it and I think is OK for a beach wedding, my cousin married in Aruba and wore something like that and it was perfect! =)

If you are open to suggestions, Watters Harmony dress is my favorite dress ever! It is what I planned on wearing when we were considering a destination wedding 🙂

I like the first one better for a beach wedding and I think the cleavage area will look fine once you have the dress that’s fitted for you.

i’m not trying to be negative nancy but any long dress might be difficult to walk in on the beach. I live in Aruba and it is challenging just to walk in a straight line on the beach. The sand here is very soft. For my beach wedding, I am wearing a cocktail length dress.

If you set on these two,  I would go with the first one because it is light and flowy!


Enjoy our “One Happy Island”

I think the Watters one is soooo much prettier, it not only shows off your figure but it looks more like a “wedding dress”

the first one is definitely more “beachy”  but since i am having a beach wedding and was never 100% happy with the “beach” dresses, i gave it up. one of the dress consultants told me not to let the beach influence my choice because the contrast of a fancy dress on the beach looks amazing. so after i just looked for something that wasn’t TOO heavy!  

that being said, i think you pull off the first dress wonderfully because you are so thin (i never liked that style on my body) and yes the chest part would need to be fitted better. if you go with it, you are definitely making a good choice….BUT i really love the second dress a whole lot more because its a little fancier and has more going on. and of course it looks amazing on you.
