I like the first one with the dramatic back. That is SO elegant (and i’m a sucker for dramatic backless dresses!) and yet great for a destination wedding. I’m not feeling the second one…I know that model is skinny but she looks swamped in that material and it adds extra weight where no woman wants it…=]

The first one is really elegant. The second it pretty, but kind of trendy. It would help to see you in the dresses. As I approach 30 my weight has shifted to certain places that would make the first one less flattering. 🙁

Hi Cakegal! I’m in a similar situation as you (destination elopment, wanting a simple dress). Where did you find these?

I also vote for the first dress but mainly b/c the second just isn’t my taste. But I think both are nice.

Haha, Rachelss – I am right there with ya! I’d in good shape but I’d need some major spanx to go with dress 1. But since cakegal is a size 0, I’m betting that won’t be a problem. 🙂

I love the first one…it’s simple and elegant. The second one has too much going on for my taste.

Cakegal, I love both but I’m in the minority in that I would go for the second one.  For a woman your size (I’m about the same) I think the second one would be lovely and it looks really comfy!  All I can think when I see that extra fabric is no spanx needed and you can eat an extra piece of cake!  

But again, I’m sure you’ll be gorgeous in either.

I am in the minority and will say dress 2.  For me personally, I am not a fan of the nightgown/lingerie look of wedding dresses; while dress 2 is still simple, it also has a unique element to it and it seems like you have the figure to pull it off.
