I personally regardless of venue like dress 2 more. I think it would be perfect for any wedding! I think adding a thin blingy belt or even thin straps will be beautiful!

I think both of these dress would look fantastic at your venue! They are both beautiful and would fit an outdoor venue with a rustic sort of theme. I actually think the first dress fits the rustic theme more because of the lace. I think the champagne color is lovely for an outdoor wedding.

I’m also getting married at an outdoor venue and this is my dress (which I think has a similar feel to your first one):

I am smitten with your outdoor venue.  Wear what makes you happiest, they’ll both look good.  The first is definitely fancier but I can see why you like it, it’s so pretty.  The second would probably look better outdoors though – romantic, breezy, more natural looking.

I don’t like dress #1 at all. I think it’s a little outdated. Dress #2 is just more romantic and beautiful. By The Way, you’re venue is absolutely gorgeous.

I completely LOVE dress #1. Also you’re not getting married on a beach, you’re getting married at what looks like a castle. A princess gown is totally appropriate!

I personally prefer dress 2, I think it is much prettier and more modern looking but still gorgeous for an outdoor ceremony. Like you say you can always ‘jazz’ it up with jewellary and sparkles somehow! 🙂

estwedding:  I’m not even reading your post.  Why?  Because I’m wearing a SUPER glimmering WAY formal dress for our wedding in a beautiful historic city park (I’d anticipated wearing a pretty special occasion dress but tried on my Oleg Cassini and that was that) and I’ll echo what my  salesperson said when I said exactly what you did, “It’s never too formal/fancy if it’s what YOU want and what feels right.  It’s your wedding.”

FWIW:  I like the first dress a lot more.  But you’ll look beautiful in whatever you choose because it will exude you!

The second  dress by far ( I dont think venue should dictate your dress , unless really,  really formal or a theme maybe )   I love its flowy lines.  

If you add straps and/or a belt, have  them narrow  and delicate  in keeping with the ethereal quality of the dress.
