    They look very similar but I really like the lace work on the first one

    I think both are STUNNING dresses…I am not sure if either are really a beach dress though. Just my opinion!

    They both are too similar. I think it will depend on which one you like more. The silhouette of both looks the same. Is one heavier than the other?

    I like the first one better but honestly, I don’t think lace works for a beach wedding.  It’s too heavy.

    I think that neither of those dresses are suitable for a beach wedding. Lace is too stiff and heavy for a ceremony on the beach. If you look at wedding dresses designed for beach weddings, they are often made of flowing fabric such as organza.

    I like the first dress but not for the type of wedding you are having.

    If you choose to follow some of the advice on this thread, maybe you can wear something less heavy for the ceremony and then change into your lace gown.

    Will you actually ON the beach (i.e. walking in sand) or NEAR a beach?  If it’s ON a beach, you might consider something lighter.  If it’s NEAR a beach, I vote for dress #1.

    @purplehibiscus:  I am wearing a lace gown for a beach wedding at the Ritz-Carlton, Kapalua in Maui.  I think an elegant venue calls for an elegant gown even if you are outdoors.  That said, if you love lace, wear lace!

    I think they are similar in terms of suitability for a beach wedding (i.e. neither are particularly beachy, but it’s your wedding so I’m all for wearing a gown that’s fancier than the venue/location) so on that basis, pick the one you like better. 🙂

    I love the bottom one. That lace is gorgeous. Wouldn’t say either is really suited for a beach wedding. Not that it would stop me from wearing my dream dress.

    Oh the first one is so pretty! I like how the skirt transitions on the bottom.
