Hi, my wedding is in 10 days. I am having my second fitting tomorrow, and I’ve never been sure about the dress. First of all, it’s a small wedding at a beach restaurant. We won’t be directly on the sand, but it’s definately a beach wedding. The wedding will be very vintage-y and personal. The bridesmaids are my 4 daughters and are wearing short white drsses of their choice
(the youngest is 28, to give you an idea of my age). The groom is in a light grey suit.
The first fitting, I felt like the dress looks too low cut and maybe too formal. So at (obviously) the last minute I went to another bridal salon and found a dress I love that is a clean sample, but was in a sample sale. The salon will fix a couple of small seam issues and open the back a bit, making a bit moe of a “v”. They can have it done in time, but I have to tell them for sure tomorrow by 4pm.
So what do you think? should I switch or keep the first dress? Not terribly comfortable for me to put pictures here, but oh, well!! Any ideas would be appreciated.

i honestly like them both, but the 2nd one more.
its more airy and flowy. i think the ruching in the first one is pretty severe in the back.
can i also say that i’m refusing to believe you have a 28 y/o daughter? you are a hot mom!!

Put a poll.
I vote for the 2nd one! I like it better on you and with your theme!

I think you look great in both! I especially like the top-front of the first one, and the skirt and back of the second one… which helps you in no way… sry!

I think you look SO much more comfortable in the second dress. If you can swing it budget and time wise I think get the second one

You are definitely a HOT mom! I like the second one better…mainly because of the buttons down the back.

I love the first one but I agree the second may be more appropriate for your wedding. Either one looks fantastic on you!

Maybe the second one is better for beach, but I likey the 1st as well. Hot body – your youngest is 28?!?

I like them both but think the second one has more of a light,floaty, beachy feel to it.

I LOVE the first dress on you and I think it fits well with the vintage theme. However, I can see how it wouldn’t be very comfortable, especially for a beach wedding where there is sun, sand, and humidity. The first dress makes me sweat just thinking about wearing it on the beach (although I live in Florida so maybe it isn’t quite so hot and humid where you are!) The second dress definitely says beachy to me and it looks gorgeous on you as well. I think you should pick the one you would feel the most comfortable AND beautiful in. I can’t answer that for you because I don’t know exactly how the first one feels on.
