You look great in both, but I prefer the lace one more. Since you have already bought both dresses, why not have a change of dress mid-wedding? Wear both!

the beaded… I don’t care for the lace bodice design at all, kinda matronly IMO. And agree with above, do not belt the beaded dress – it’ll cut off the design in a weird way.

I actually prefer the lace one. I think it is far more flattering on you from both the front and the back, it also sounds like it suits your venue perfectly.
But like PPs said, if you go with the beaded one definitely no belt.

Beaded, no belt. They are both lovely dresses but if I had to nitpick then the beaded one is just more unique. I see so many of these lace type dresses at the moment.
But, seeing that you already bought both you could just wear both. One for the ceremony and one for the party ^_^

I prefer the lace, but I feel the other fits your venue better. Lace for the ceremony, the other for the reception? Or whichever one has the shorter train so you don’t have to bustle it.

I like the beaded but with no belt

You can’t really go wrong with either. But I wouldn’t wear them both… too similar.

They are very similar but I prefer the beaded as the lace is a bit matronly on you possibly…

Before seeing the dresses I was going to suggest wearing them both, but they are honestly so similar I think that would actually be kind of pointless. I also vote beaded (I love lace but don’t like that neckline) and definitely no belt.

Lace for ceremony, beaded fun one for reception 🙂
