Hi Tammie,

Both dresses are beautiful.  However,  I probably wouldn't opt for sequins & feathers at a wedding (just my opinion) in case it ends up being more conservative.  

I went to a black tie wedding & most females weren't wearing full-length dresses (although I'm in California and we tend to be more casual here - even at a black tie wedding!) but no short-short dresses.

I think you can't go wrong with simple, classic designs.  Here are a few nice options I saw on the website you provided:





Take care,
