    Personally, I like the 2nd dress short! But it all depends on what your dress looks like!

    It depends on your theme, and how formal it will be. I think if more formal, you should go with the long coral. If more casual, I like the long dress made short. I think the first dress is more appropriate for a guest. I think it’s too casual for the wedding party.

    Do you have to choose? Could 2 wear one and 2 wear the other??

    I really don’t think either look good with the grey sash.  I’d probably pick the second one without that.

    I’m loving the long version of dress 2. I feel that the short version of dress 2 just isn’t quite cutting it for me…

    I LOVE LOVE LOVE #1. that actually IS a dress they’d wear again. The sash is gorgeous and the dress is classy and flattering for all. To be honest, I wish I chose it!!!

    @leecy87:  That’s a good idea…. half and half?

    @Kewlhappychic:  Theres no harm in trying them on together and seeing how they look together 

     but OK so then where will your wedding be, a church? a garden?

    I think the second one, short or long (again you could do half and half) but if i had to choose one it would be second one short. How formal or informal it looks would depend on the shoes you pair them with

    Did you already purchase one of each? Is your wedding month correct?

    My initial thoughts are that the second would be more flattering on any size, except someone who might be more busty. Looks to me like there might be some inadvertant exposure because of how low it is opposite the flower side. Not something I’d want to be worried about all night if I had to wear it. It also looks too summery to me, but I guess that depends on where you live. If the wedding is more formal, keeping it long would be better.

    The first dress has the odd pleating at the top, so it might not look so great with a larger bust size either. I like the gray with the first one, but I think if you use a sash, it should be more substantial so it hides more of the seam at the waist.

    How many of the girls tried them on?
