Ok so due to a horrible lengthy illness we had to push our wedding back a year. 🙁 Now I have to resume the dress hunt and I am no longer confident the dress I had chosen to have replicated is the best one for my figure. Unfortunately months on prednisone did not allow me to lose the weight like I had planned and because I want an offbeat vintage dress I can’t just go and try a ton on. My dress will have to be replicated. I need the help of people that can look at something and tell me if it will work on my figure.
My bridesmaids will wear something similar to this:
The groomsmen this:
The groom this:
Okay now on to dresses for me. Originally I had planned to wear this:
Now I am thinking about these dresses (I will not wear white or ivory.):
Dress #1 (only strapless maybe?)
me in similar style (ok so just as close as I could find)
maybe have it made in an aqua or purple?
Or this one on the left?
Nothing comes even close. These are the closest:
like I said not very close. Sorry!
There is this one:
Dress#4 and #5
Dress #7 and #8
(I am actually holding much of that skirt between my knees in order to fit in that room. LOL)
And this one is my favorite:
Not sure about it as a wedding dress but I think I will have one made as a Christmas present to myself :p
Other dress suggestions welcome.
Please oh please help me someone. I am horrible at this. 🙁 If nothing else tell me which ones will not work for me. Thanks!

I am seriously in love with dress 1. That’s ridiculously gorgeous.

i think dress two and 3 are the most flattering styles but love the impact of dress 1

Girl you are all over the place!
But Number one is my fave.

Omg I LOVE #9 on you. I think it definitely slims your waist while looking so so so flattering and elegant. I prefer it to the strapless dresses – the way the straps hit your shoulders is so flattering!! And it makes you look very tall and lean. Love it!

I LOVE the blue/purple dress!

A bride here on wedding bee had a replica of the purple/blue dress made. I thought it turned out really, really well! http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/the-progress-of-my-custom-wedding-dress

I LOVE the silhouette of dress #9 on you!! It’s super flattering!!
My other two favorites are your original dress and dress #1!

I actually gasped when I saw #1. It is to die for!

5,6, and 9 looked best on you in my opinion!

Dresses with sleeves that are cinched in at the waist seem to be the most flattering for you. I voted wrong, stick with your original pic. It’s STUNNING.
ETA: BTW, it’s very confusing. I think you should have had all the pictures of you trying on dresses at the top and then all the pictures of the dresses after. This way, we can see your body type first and then all the dresses to choose from all at once.
ETA2: While I think the first one is PRETTY, which is why everyone is picking it, I don’t think it will look best on you, sorry. 🙁

Yah this is kind of hard to follow lol.
But number 1 seems to be a nice flattering shape for you…so I don’t really know why your dream dress at the very top is out..the one you want replicated? It seems that if you did a similiar neckline as in dress 1 with the bottom skirt from your dream dress it would look gorgeous!
I don’t see a lot of similarity in the dresses you’re trying on and the inspiration dresses so it’s kind of hard to say which of the dresses you are thinking about would look best.
