I like the second picture a lot with the embroidered flowers and flowy skirt.  The first one looks almost maternity to me.  The second one is gorgeous and perfect for a garden wedding.  But having them both in your possession, which one feels more flattering on?

I really like the second one! I think it’s really beautiful :]

I can only see the tiny DB pics – don’t have the plug in. 

But from what I can see I like the one with the unique skirt better, it’s really gorgeous but it sucks about the material.  I wonder if there’s anything that can be done about it or if steaming would help at all?

I prefer the first one with the flowery skirt. I think that dress is much better for one’s figure.

Second dress.  Very unique and beautiful.  It is important to feel comfortable though.  I like the DB gown, just not as much.  Gowns like the DB one sometimes remind me a bit of a nightgown/pajamas or something.

I agree with other posters – like the shape of the flowered one much better. The DB isn’t that flattering even on the model.

I think you could wear the DB one the next day with the right accessories. I’d pick a chunky bracelet or necklace and headband in coral or turqoise and fun sandles to make it a little more casual. I think if you wear anything too delicate with it – it’ll look like too bridal.

Maybe even think about replacing the center of the flowers with bright colored beads to make it more fun (this is just quick photoshop version).
