I like the shorter one because it's young and contemporary which is what I usually gravitate towards, especially for a destination wedding. The long one is more mature and elegant. Just depends what look you're going for and what your BMs prefer :) Good luck!

Oh my goodness! :o I see your dilemma in choosing.

I like the style of the first dress, young, short, beachy but dressy... but I see what you're saying about the color...possibly getting washed out. I think you'll be okay though! Your dress has more color to it than that washed out pic.

 

However, the second dress is nice also. It's more formal & elegant.

My friend had a beach wedding last May in Riviera Maya. She had very long BM dresses like #2. They were blowing in pictures but extremely HOT. All their pics have big sweat marks on the dresses under the girls' arms, on their backs, and under their boobs in the front. They were baking in the sun. I say go with dress #1.

 

Good Luck!

Yikes! I never thought of sweat marks! Another thing to worry about...

Thanks for your comments!!

I say long!! I think long dresses look so pretty on the beach and if the wind blows a little hard they don't have to worry about it flying up!

We have made a conclusion based on our friends, photographers and your votes: The long dress!

 

My fiance is totally rubbing it in about the fact that he "won" because he picked the long dress the moment he saw it.  :angry:

 

Thanks so much for all your help ladies! I really couldn't have been about to pick one over the other without all your opinions!

I want the first dress for myself!  It's gorgeous!  

 

If you can find it in another color, that would be better in my opinion.  But if the other is cheaper, doesn't need to be altered much AND they like it more...I'd honestly say go with that.  But then again, it's your wedding :)
