Wedding dresses: where to start?

I should mention, I hate shopping and would rather not go to more than 1 or 2 stores (or spend more than a couple of hours doing this), and do NOT want to spend a fortune
Will a sequin lace wedding dress look out of place in a low key daytime wedding?
We're planning a low-key daytime wedding with a very small number of people followed with a lunchtime party at home to celebrate. I had been leaning towards a slim fitting sheath style dress with sequin lace for a shimmer all over. My friend has advised me to drop the sparkle and go for a more flowing dress, as she thinks that for the sparkly dress I'd need a more formal "black tie" dress code. Although both dresses look good on me, I associate more flowing dresses with feeling "pretty" and I'm after an elegant look which I associate more with the sheath dress. Our dress code for party guests is "cocktail attire (ties optional)". It's not too late to change the dress code for guests to something more formal and we could push the party timing back to late afternoon / early evening but with the party being at home (on our deck) she thinks black tie will probably look out of place. How formal / later in the day would I need to make the party for the sparkly dress to look appropriate?

What to wear for my second wedding

Help! I have an issue with my dress fitting. What do I do?
My wedding dress is a strapless sweetheart neckline design that fits like a glove but I am quite concerned about the gapping at top bust area, especially when I team it up with a strapless push up bra. I am thin on top and god has given me very little in terms of cleavage.
I have tried wearing the dress without a bra and the gapping is less as I'm able to tie the corset back tighter. However I look flat with no cleavage. What to do?
