The title says it – I’m getting married in less than 3 weeks and haven’t decided which dress I want to go with. I like both for different reasons. I haven’t had the elusive “wow” moment with either which is fine, I just want to feel beautiful on the day. Our wedding is very intimate, just 14 people at my sister’s house with a ceremony and sit down dinner. No dancing or reception.
So what do you think? Which dress? Thank you so much!

Love the second one on you! It’s absolutely stunning. The first is fine but kinda meh, in my opinion.

I think the second is more bridal. You can wear the first to a glitzy ball sometime.

Second all the way. Even though it’s a simple cut, it looks unmistakenly bridal (I had a VERY similar wedding to yours btw, at my sister’s house, 14 ppl us included and we went out for dinner later. No reception or anything like that). My dress was also a simple cut.
The second one looks so classic too, I feel like in 20 years when you look at your wedding pictures, you’ll still love it.
The first one is a pretty dress and looks good on you, but doesn’t really say “bride” to me. For me, even though my wedding was low key and small and my dress had a simple cut, I still wanted to look and feel totally like a bride.

The second one is my favorite! You wear the dress in that one <3

I have to go opposite the PPs… I think you can pull either off, but I prefer the first. The second one looks a bit too plain to me almost like a slip. If you wear the second I would add a belt or something to it. I think the first is lovely and the detail is beautiful and I feel like it fits your occassion.

That BHLDN dress is actually on my potentials list, but that second dress looks amazing on you! But I agree with the PP, maybe add a belt or sash.

Thank you all so much! I purchased this sash to try with the Jill Jill dress and think it’ll add a little something to it.
I loved the bhldn dress on the website and was so excited to receive it. I think it photographs beautifully but for whatever reason, in person, I feel like it’s not very flattering. Something about where it hits on my torso makes me look wider and shorter. I love the detailing on the top, though, and how romantic it is.

I normally don’t like plain dresses. But you kill the second dress!!! And it looks so classic.

The sash you chose is so pretty. I think it will add alittle pop to dress #2.

I’m a “the first one” fan, but you look killer in both of them…

I really like the first one honestly. A lot more than I thought I would.

The first one makes you look a little pudgy in the midsection which you clearly are not!! #2 is classic, classy, and gorgeous.

For the type of wedding you are having I think the first dress. It is fun and you will definitely stand out. While the second one may look more ‘bridal’ aka it is white, it is quite blah I think

Definitely the second one. The first one isn’t cut properly for your torso…it makes you look like you have a shorter torso than you do—it’s not UNflattering but when comparing the two, the second is definitely the right dress. I also love the sash idea.
