    The only thing I'm worried about with the first choice is that because it has quite a fitted waist, it may 'balloon' around my hips and bottom from the waist rather than draping down softly. Such a hard decision

    If I were you I'd be ordering whichever one you decide on one to two sizes too big and then taking it to a good dressmaker for alterations 2 weeks before the wedding.

    That way any bits that don't look right can be fixed.

    Yeah that's what I'm planning on doing. Have no idea how much these boobies are going to expand!

    I was head bridesmaid a few weeks ago when DS2 was 7 weeks old. The dresses we wore were very similar to the first dress in your selection. My dress was ordered soooooo big it had to be taken in over 20cm. But it's easier to remove fabric than add it. The style is very forgiving for the tummy area

    Oh and the back was a lace up so we could tighten them even more or loosen them.

    The second one.
    Thicker waist band will make you look more slim and take the focus away from other body parts. It will give you a nice shape.

    They are all gorgeous dresses, but I believe the first one in the coral will be the best.
    It has the most draping on the bust so it will be the most flattering, as will the gathering of the skirt, making it that little bit more user friendly for your hips etc. Unfortunately though as they are quite structured dresses I wouldn't be surprised if there was some sort of boning through the bodice which would make it difficult to alter for breast feeding. You may want to express prior then you can have a glass of bubbles or two to join the festivities!
    Good luck... You will look gorgeous!
