Torn Between 2 Dresses!

Hi everyone! I need some help. My wedding is next August and for the first time (even including last year) I finally found dresses that take my breath away.
It felt great to have that moment finally, but my dilemma is that I had it twice! LOL

Price is not an issue, they only have a $40 difference and my brother gave me the money to pay for it in full.
I’m torn because there are two major things that concern me but other than that, they are very similar dresses.
Here is dress #1:Torn Between 2 Dresses! 1
Torn Between 2 Dresses! 2
I love the ruching and the neck line, but I don’t like the no straps.
Dress #2:Torn Between 2 Dresses! 3
Torn Between 2 Dresses! 4

I love the straps and you can’t see it but the cut outs underneath the armpit.
I absolutely love the slit, the buttons down the back the shape, the train for both dresses.
I’m only have a rough time about the top. We’re getting married in Banff, we also booked an adventure session for golden hour in the mountains and I can envision myself in both of them, running in the mountains.
So I need your help! Which do you prefer and why?
Thanks

    Thanks! I love them both too. I’m going to try them on again this weekend. Talk to the bridal store about dress number one to see if it’s possible to add straps. It’s not for the entire night, but I will be doing a lot of walking and dancing and during that part I would love to just snap the straps on. Best thing is that the dress also has pockets and I can keep them in there

    Both are stunning!! You can’t make a wrong choice! In my opinion though I LOVE dress #1 on you but I’m the same, I don’t love wearing strapless. Make sure you feel comfortable to enjoy your big day!!

    Thank you very much Smiley smile I am going to try on dress number one and talk about getting straps and will go from there. If I am able to add straps, it will definitely be the dress I am going with

    You are absolutely gorgeous! Both dresses are stunning. If you are worried about comfort adventuring in a strapless, then go with straps, but otherwise both are incredible dresses. Also, covered buttons!!

    Yeah, that's what got me so torn. I think for the purpose of us doing a wedding strayed from traditional, I am starting to prefer dress #1. I want it to be different and fun with a hint of sexy!

    He does not have wedding wire, so I am not too worried.

    I may be the odd one out, but I actually really like the second one. I personally prefer a more sleek style, so I like how simple and elegant that one looks, with the ability to add some details if needed.

    For sure #1 hands down. Also, what if the future husband-to-be sees the dress on you before the wedding? Or is that not a tradition in your wedding?

    One all the way!! It just does it for you, it has that ba ba boom... Perhaps you can add straps if it's really bothersome?!
