    I love the second dress and you could wear a higher heel and you would be more comfortable and able to dance more .  You can take bridal portraits in the first one then sell it.  That way you have pictures of yourself in both dresses.

    I say go with the dress you love. You will find shoes you like. I also would say go with a 2" heel - if the dress isn't flush against the floor, I don't know that it'll make that big of a difference.

     

    Are there any options for a skilled seamstress to add another layer to the bottom of your 1st dress for the extra length you want for heels? maybe a bit of tulle at the bottom, or even another layer of the pleats/ruffles?

      Allie, you are a genius.  I have raised this concern to my friends, family and even my Fi (who respond by saying "I thought you wanted your dress to cover your feet"...doesn't get it) and you're the first to suggest this. I didn't even consider this option and it's seemingly the easiest remedy and hopefully cost effective. My seamstress has quite the reputation so I feel confident that she should be able to pull this off.  And I'll be able to wear fantastic shoes! FYI...Wearing 1" heels, the dress is 1/4" off the ground .

        ok, this short chick has major envy of your height!

          Keep the one that makes you happiest, from the sounds of it that is dress #1.  Dress 2 might be less expensive but this is the one time you can throw that logic out the window and go for what you really want!

              Personally I like the second dress better and it will save you money - win/win :)
