Which dress??

I am going to a wedding at the weekend, evening only. I've ordered two dresses and can't decide between them. Which looks best for a wedding? Lace one would be worn with nude heels, floral with black heels.

The floral one looks lovely, I'd definitely choose that one.

I'm swaying towards that one as I'd get some wear out of it.I'm dieting so (hopefully) it won't fit for long so something I can wear more than once would be better.

I think the floral one.

Floral, yes. Certainly.

Keep them both. The navy one looks like it might be great for work

The floral one.

another vote for floral

Floral it is, thanks for the help. DP was no help as usual, just said they were 'both lovely'.

I think navy only because you'd probably get more wear out if it. The floral one is lovely though.

Mmm. But that exact style of lace dress has been about for yonks and they're starting to verge on looking dated already. Particularly in navy. They're nice, flattering dresses which is why they've been SO popular. I think there's more longevity in the floral one.

The floral one is very similar to the style of dress I wear to work so I think I'd actually get more wear out of it. I see the point about the lace ones starting to look a bit dated.

The lace one does look dated and it also looks a bit off/poorly made. The proportions look a bit wrong.
