Help me pick what dress to wear

Clip to ScrapBook #1

I have a wedding to attend in a few weeks and it is my first time meeting that side of my boyfriend's family. I am in my mid 20s and plan on wearing my hair down with black pumps. I bought both of these dresses on sale but now can't decide which one to wear!


Choice Number One:

Choice Number Two:

They are both very cute, but I like #1 the best. I think it is more "springy."

Have fun!!!

First one for a family meeting.
Second one seems more like a friends night (not meeting the parents, grandma, uncle kind of dress)

The first one looks a little more conservative which would be good when meeting the "family" the first time.

I like choice 1. They're both pretty, but choice 2 looks more like something you would wear if you were IN the wedding.

I'm mid 30's here, but I think previous posters have a good point. I instantly thought the first dress looked like more of a meeting relatives/friends kind of dress, and still had the beautiful flattering neckline and length.

The second one would be great if you're going to a wedding, but I don't know that I would wear it if I was meeting friends/relatives for the first time at a wedding. But, hey...what do I know? I sometimes wear mismatched socks...no judging here.

Good luck. Either way, I think you'll look great. Both are super cute.

I love #2 for a wedding. I don't think it's too sexy to meet the relatives. I think it's beautiful. The first one is too casual for a wedding imo and if you didn't already purchase it, when I opened it , it said no longer available!

parents, relatives, dress, cute, sexy, yet conservative enough that no one will have a problem with it.
#2, shows a little too much skin, seems more appropriate for a more formal role in a wedding

I think if its an evening wedding, I'd go with choice number 2.

Where is the wedding taking place?


Can you tell that I like to shop and that every event requires multiple purchases just to make sure I have all my bases covered?

I'm in my mid 20s as well, and I would go with #2! I think it's formal, yet still fun and definitely age appropriate. It's more of a dress for a wedding in my opinion, whereas the first is a little less formal and "older."

Something to consider might be the age of the couple getting married. If it is a cousin, and the person is in his or her 20s, most people will probably be relatively young and #2 would be perfect! On the contrary, if it's an older couple, they are less likely to have young friends and you might fit in better in #1.

Number 1 is perfect-even for evening! t's elegant, pattern is gorgeous and the style is softer.

I'm not sure how this fits on you, but on me it would plunge a little bit, so I'd add a little black cami underneath just so Grandma didn't see any cleavage

I like the first one best. If the wedding is in a church also think about a cover up for either dress-cute cardigan sweater, little jacket, or shawl. Many churches would not appreciate the second dress at a religious service. If the wedding is not being held at a church I still like the first one best, but the second would work for a fancy evening wedding.

I like the first one. The second one seems like something the high school girls around here would wear to a school dance. It just shouts "young!" to me.

Thanks everyone! We are just attending the wedding reception and it is at a reception hall. I think I'll go with #1 and dress it up with some strappy black peep toe pumps and jewelry.
