They’re both lovely. Agree that number 2 looks more comfortable though.

DP and I are engaged but no wedding planned as yet because too much organising required. I want a coloured wedding dress. I’m paranoid I’ll try dresses on and end up with a traditional white gown!

I know someone who got married in a red bridal gown. it was stunning. sure it freaked out the traditionalists, but it suited her so perfectly.

The first one is absolutely stunning but I really think that the second one would be more suited to your shape and still looks fantastic.

I also wore a coloured dress. It was much more "me".

I LOVE them both.  The first is just stunning and I wouldn't call it simple at all.  The second is also gorgeous.  If you can, I would 100% do a costume change and wear both.

Years ago I ordered a wedding dress from an online bridal store that was having a closing down sale.  It wasn't exactly cheap, about $590 or so.  Anyway, no refunds allowed as it was on sale etc etc - it arrived in an A4 size paper envelope - I knew I was screwed.

I would have a wedding (if someone else would organise and pay for it) annually haha

I prefer the second one. To me the first is 'fussier'.

I seriously considered starting a wedding planning business. I loved it so much. All the brides would just have to do what I say, though.

My friend wore a hot pink gown for her wedding - it was perfectly her.

But the second one is absolutely gorgeous and you are most definitely not too old for it! Go for the second one. You adore it, you look good in it and you won’t regret it!

So smart! People say they barely eat their own wedding meal because of all the chatting but I can’t see that being me

I’m a bottom heavy size 14 so second is more flattering, I can see that

I didn't get to drink much but I definitely ate the meal and the cake! My wedding dress was a gorgeous 1910s-inspired affair complete with boning and a lace up back. Didn't need to wear a bra even though DD boobs. The more I ate at the reception the bigger my cleavage got because there was nowhere for it to go! DH cheekily suggested I just keep eating :D This was my dress, I wore it with the lace cap sleeves and a tiara instead of a veil, I was 35 and a size 14-16 and felt like a princess:

Go the second one, it's beautiful and much more comfortable, you can eat and drink to your heart's content.

No one will think you’re trying to be a 20 year old bride! They will think,”she looks so happy today! I’m so glad I was invited to celebrate with them”.

This.
