Definately beaded! Looks so much more flattering on you, and is much more glam. The lace one looks like a very standard style wedding dress that i’ve seen far too often.

team lace – it flatters your body more. It doesn’t need the belt. I find the beaded gown just a little less bridal.

I love the idea of wearing both: one for the ceremony (lace) & one for the party. The sparkly beads would be oh so beautiful dancing.

I prefer the lace one hands down! Looks more flattering, more bridal and I just like the soft look it gives over all. The second one is nice too but definitely more party vibes- I can’t picture it with a veil and walking down the aisle, more of a reception dress. I’d go with no belt if that’s the one you choose. 

ETA: could I have used the word “more” anymore?! 😂

Beaded, no belt, its stunning and so different to all the standard dresses you see!

The second one l think. The lace is pretty, but stock standard see-lt-all-the-time. If that matters. 

I wouldn’t try turning the sparkly one into a sheath though. Partly because you are short of time, but mostly because lts doubtful it would work.

I see you say your theme is ‘simple elegance ‘…. neither of these dresses say that to me, but perhaps the lace one more. Without the belt of course.

Beaded, no belt. Lace neckline is not as nice on you.
