    Choose the more comfortable one for sure! You want to feel beautiful AND comfortable so you can actually enjoy your wedding day.

    Maybe it’s just because it hasn’t been properly fitted yet, but the second dress doesn’t flatter your gorgeous figure at all!

    I love them both!  But the second just speaks to me more.  You can’t go wrong.

    2nd dress fits the romantic bohemian look best but the 1st dress fits your body better…if you can get the 2nd altered somehow…or find a similar dress that shows off your beautiful figure more I would go with that!

    I voted before reading because the first dress looks a LOT better on you.  If you can get the second fitted, it may well be quite nice too though.  I’d 100% pick comfort over looks. You have to lug your heavy dress around all day long.  You don’t get to eat or drink as much as you think you will. You’re constantly running around for the ceremony, pictures, greeting guests, dancing.  You will be miserable and exhausted if you wear something heavy on top of all that.  That said, I really don’t like dress 2 as-is, so if that’s how you’d leave it, I’d go find something else.

    Comfort. Plus when fitted properly that dress will be a knockout. 

    If you are sweating and uncomfy in the first dress now, picture you with all the stress of the day and HOURS and HOURS of posing, greeting, dancing etc. Don’t do it to yourself!

    I like the first dress a bit more, but I also think the second one would look really beautiful when it fits properly! Is there one that makes you more excited? At the end of the day, if you really are torn and love them equally but for different reasons, I would go with the second one! If just trying it on made you uncomfortable, I think day of when you’re probably nervous and are wearing it for hours upon hours, you’ll be too focused on the heavy dress. I think the second one is really beautiful and looks like it would fit your venue and the look you’re going for perfectly, and if its comfortable than you’ll be beautiful day of and not even have to think about it!

    Though both are lovely, it seems to me the dresses that you posted somehow lack the bohemian look you want. You could always consider other options. I think a style such as the dress below has that soft, romantic and bohemian touch, and comfortable too:

    I prefer the second , with the proviso  of getting it fitted better of course . I’m  not altogether sold  on the nude  iillusion at the  neckline though. 

    They are completely different looks , so I wonder if you need to  think a bit more about what you really want maybe ?  I mean neither of  them are Bohemian -style , especially  the first.

    I’m normally a believer that comfort is paramount but number one has spades more wow factor. Looks great on you

    buenavrm :  

    I normally prefer fitted dresses on girls like you who have the body to wear them, but in this instance I’m not so much of a fan. Dress 1 actually LOOKS heavy on you – like it’s really thick and all that beading is weighing you down as well. Even though the second dress is not a great fit, it somehow manages to make you look smaller. I think it might be because the first dress is adding bulk with all that extra weight of it.

    Also, I don’t think either dress is particularly boho, not that that really matters if you like it.
