    they’re both gorgeous but I think you’re right, the first dress is a little plain.

    That blue dress is absolutely MAGICAL on you. I love it!

    I absolutely love the blue dress bee. The first one is fine but not particularly special. I don’t think you really need to worry about clashing with the decor, and I still think a colourful flower crown would look beautiful with it. 

    What does the back look like?

    I think you look nice in the first, and it is flattering, but the blue one is a show stopper. I’m usually not a fan of colored embroidery, but that one is so tastefully done and elegant.

    My jaw literally fell open at the blue dress.  It’s 10000 times better.

    Like other bees I agree the second one is so magical and gorgeous! It looks amazing on you!! It also kind of reminds me of a rainforest. The detailing looks like the vines in a rainforest! I think it’s absolutely beautiful

    From what you’ve written, it seems you are happier in the first dress, which is why I’d go with that. You are the only one that needs to love the dress (and it is beautiful on you!!!). You don’t want to have dress regret by going with a dress that you don’t feel is “you.”

    I normally love a bit of colour, but in this case I like dress #1 much better. It’s got some beautiful unusual details and looks great on you

    If we’re just looking at the dress, the blue dress is the showstopper… but from reading what you have to say it sounds like the first dress would be lower stress as you don’t have to change any other plans and you feel very much yourself in it. I also think the white dress is a little more flattering, but they both look great on you. Is the blue dress just a little big on you? I think it comes down to how important is your comfort and stress level versus how important is it to you to wear a dress that stands up on its own?

    I think both dresses are beautiful and, while the blue dress on it’s own has more going on, the accessories you have planned for the first one would make you and the dress stand out just as much as the second dress. Reading your original post, it sounds like your heart is actually set on the first one and you are torn by other’s opinions and the fact that dress 2 is absolutely beautiful. Imagine being told you couldn’t have either dress for whatever reason and pay attention to your initial reach; that should tell you which one you prefer.

    The first one is so casual IMO. I feel like if it was a different color you could wear that to any event.

    The second one definitely has more wow factor! Love the detailing and I think it goes amazingly with your rainforest venue.

    bluejaybride :  I like the second dress better but it sounds like you like the first one. Go with your gut, it’s your day and you can’t do it over! Choose the one you feel best in and the one you’re most drawn to.

    The first dress reminds me of white eyelet summer dresses that everyone wears around here in the summer.    I truly wouldn’t have thought it was a traditional wedding dress from a shop.    If this kind of casual look is what you are going for, it looks really good on you.
