    #1 would be absolutely perfect for a beach wedding!  I like dress #2, but the first one definitely got my vote 🙂  Very beautiful!

    Dress #1! I don’t think it’s too simple at all! The flower detail/draping makes it interesting, and you can always accessorize with a great necklace, bracelet, and simple stud earrings. Or, get a fantastic veil with some flowers on it.

    Dress number 2 got my vote.. Im getting married on the beach too and my final two dress choices where so similar to yours, and in the end i chose the mermaid style. Like a pp said, you only get one chance to wear a dress like this, so if thats the style you love, go for it 🙂

    I vote #2! Dress #1 is pretty and was similar to my first dress choice (Im beach as well), but chiffon didnt do anything to my figure. Dress #2 is lace and so is mine – but I love it because it looks like light natural lace and looks super romantic and light weight. The bottom has beautiful flowy layers too which I think makes it look gorgeous and unique and gets my vote! Like the other posters said, you only get one day to wear a dress like this – may as well make it the one that stands out to you!

    One!!! Imagine that gorgeous material fluttering in the slight breeze!

    I like them both. I think #1 is just too stereotypically “beach appropriate”. It is exactly what I would expect for a beach wedding and nothing more (don’t get me wrong, it is very pretty). However, #2, especially with loose hair like the model and the right accessories would be phenomenal!!

    I’m a beach wedding photographer, and for the love of all things wedding, I just don’t understand chiffon for a beach wedding. I say this with love, but people always seem to forget that there is a breeze on the beach. I know Chiffon is light, flowy, and feels “beachy” – but it also makes people look pregnant when the wind blows the dress up against them. Just sayin’. 

    I can tell you that out of all the beach weddings I shoot (which is pretty much 99% of all my weddings) I’ve only had 2 chiffon dresses (thankfully!!!) in the past 4 years. 

    Obviously, my pick is for #2. It’s gorgeous. The organza will still be lightweight for the beach, but the dress actually has structure as well.

    @MrsD2Be:  thanks! Im such a sucker for lace so Im obviously biased. Do you have photos of you in both dresses?

    @MrsD2Be:  I really love dress #1. I’m also having a destination wedding but I chose a very structured dress and I am now realizing how damn hot I’m going to be!!!! I think I would have chosen a flowy type one if I were to do it over again!!
