    I like both dresses. I voted for the second one, for the versatility of the vest (love the frills on the back!), but honestly both dresses look beautiful and classy to me.

    I like the second one! I agree the front might look too plain with the lace dress in ivory.  With the second dress, maybe you can do the frill for the ceremony and then take it off later in the reception?  You should go with whichever you feel most beautiful in ๐Ÿ™‚

    I absolutely LOVE the keyhole one! I think it is absolutely gorgeous! And I know you like the simple stated dresses, but if you wanted to add a little bling a sash would look gorgeous too ๐Ÿ™‚

    I think if you cant try them on then #2 is the safest option. You could well end up needing alterations on #1 given the style.

    I love the second one! I’m not a fan of keyholes- I don’t know why. I see them on other people and think they look beautiful, but they don’t work for me. But you’re not buying for me! Love the versatility of the second dress. Holy options! You could even one look for the vows and another one or two for the reception!

    I think the frills would be too much on a larger bust.

    Both are really pretty! I’ve been thinking about doing a bridesmaid’s dress as a gown instead too—sooo much cheaper! I think the first is my favorite. If you wanted to dress it up a little you could always add a belt–something in champagne or blush would look nice and would tie in with your rustic theme.
