Which looks more suitable for an elopement/very small wedding in the mountains?  The wedding meal will be at a restaurant (imagine walking past patrons in this particular dress).  I am 36 years old, not sure if that matters.  Neither dress has been altered (Dress 1 would need to fit better at the top).



Stock photos of dresses:



My ceremony could be at either place - we are not sure yet (but will be outdoors in the mountains).  First idea requires 1/2 mile hiking to this spot.

I had a friend take some better photos of me in the dresses.  Dress 1 would need the shoulders taken up 2" and the seamstress told me to put on a better bra.  I went and bought a nice push up bra, but it doesn't quite come out the way I envisioned.  Still looks wrinkly in the bust and back.

Dress 2 - I am not crazy about the neckline actually.  If I can get it to look more like last two dresses then I think it would be OK.  As you can tell I'm not in love with either dress - just trying to figure which one will work the best!

Any more voters?

Ah, well having not really loved either gown, I found yet another.  This is my 5th dress total.  However, it's such a deal (like $25 plus shipping), that I can afford the risk.  I'll post back in a week or so when I get it!  I am a sucker for deals, which is how I ended up with the other gowns!

Looking forward to seeing photos of the new one! :-) I can see from the pictures above that the neckline on #2 wasn't quite what you were looking for. Hope you find your dream dress soon xxx
