    I love dress number one!!!! I would wear that and I think it could be dressed up or dressed down so could be used again!

    The problem I have is that I dont want to spend a fortune on something that I wont wear again! These dresses are from Bravissimo, specially cut with more boobie space lol. I felt I should make an effort, but dont want to spend mega bucks!

    I definitely prefer dress number 2 - I think that's really nice. However - I think you'd probably get more wear out of dress number 1 as it's not quite so formal....

    So - not much help there, was I?!!! :D

    I'm sure either will look fab though, and you'll definitely be at the very LEAST a size smaller by then :)

    They are both lovely Mel!!! I like the straps on 2 but I think you will have more uses out of 1. And of course your's going to be that size!!

    I wish I had a Bravissimo nearer me!! Have fun at the wedding showing yourself off.

    I have also just ordered a dress for the 5th June. I'm going to a non-wedding (they aren't actually getting married but they are having a wedding reception to celebrate getting together). I have plumped for a 14 in the hope I will be a comfortable 14 by then.

    Mel, both are gorgeous... my preference would have been dress 2, but you are going to look stunning in either, cannot wait to see the pictures :) How is it going being back on packs?
