Both sentences are "correct."

Would does indicate politeness/deference, & will can be used in "not certain" or "hypothetical" situations:

Will you wait for me if I asked you nice(ly)?

Would you wait for me if I asked you nice(ly)?

Here, would shows more deference ( ~= politeness). While, will, as usual when talking about future time, talks about the current resolve of the--in this case--the person being asked, lớn carry out a future action. It is neutral as far as deference/politeness.

As for your sentences, then, use would lớn be more polite/deferential.
