    I love the red, it’s a very striking look. You’ll look fab! If you go with the black, I think you should wear brighter accessories (such as the purple shoes) to make the look more fun 🙂

    Or indeed the red shoes? With red lipstick? 🙂

    I LOVE the black dress! Either the purple shoes or the red shoes would look great with it.

    @chronicwhimsy:  I voted for red because I like the shawl. They both look nice, but the shawl is my favourite bit.

    @MrsBee2B:  +1 I love the shawl! Honestly, both dresses are beautiful, your arms are lovely, and if you decide to go with the black dress I vote for the more-comfortable shoes. 🙂

    I think you look stunning in the black dress.  It’s super flattering.  I’d love to know where you got it!  

    I’d do any of the coloured shoes.  The red or the purple, for a little punch of colour.  The red dress is nice, but I love the black one.

    I like the red one…I think black one looks a little gloomy..

    You look awesome in both! 

    Personally, I love the back, the sleeves are adorable and very appropriate for Nov. I’d also take any excuse to wear those purple shoes! Love ’em. 

    As for tradition about not wearing black – All the formal weddings I’ve been to have had about half the female guests in black. There are just too many cute LBDs to rule them out for wedding attire.

    I think both are great looks so it’s a bit hard to decide!  I chose the red because the shoes are comfier so you’ll be able to dance more.

    Have fun! 😀
