1) i think it is adorable and a beautiful color

2) very inappropriate to ask 50 ppl their opinions as opposed to just addressing any concerns she may have with you

3) so nice of your parents to cover the cost!

Those dresses are really pretty!  Maybe she’s just really indecisive?

I think they are very pretty – the waist line on all three look like the could be a *little* less flattering on a girl with hips, I would choose the strapless to balance out the look if it were me, BUT since you are paying they really should have no qualms about wearing whatever you choose.

Not hard to wear at all. I mean the last one is my go-to dress structure because I have curves!

Those are all beautiful and with the way the tops criscross on all of them, they should really flatter any figure quite nicely!

Dresses like that can sometimes make me look pregnant.  The neckline is very flattering.

I have some curves as well, and I would probably pick the 3rd one. I think that would flatter anyone!

Im about the same size as her and the style of the strapless dress is a style i often find flattering on me.

Those dresses are gorgeous and I would wear any of them, and I’m so jealous of your Austin!  That is one of my all-time favorite gowns.

Those dresses are beautiful!  One thing to consider (I’m coming from experience here)…

Anyone who is naturally busty may have issues finding the right fit for the first 2 styles (3rd should be okay).  I’m a 34 DD (very full) there isn’t a bra that can control these puppies without being totally visable.  I had to wear a strapless for my best friends wedding 2 years ago (which I did graciously).  Let’s just say I was told after the fact that somebodt commented as I was walking down the aisle “here comes big mama t*tties”.  Needless to say the dress could not hide a thing and the bra was useless, I had about 4″ of cleavage.  So Embarassing!

I think a curvy girl would look cute in the one with spaghetti straps.  They’re great dresses, they look like they would look good on anyone.  Nice choice you made there!  Plus…I adore your dress.  :Drool:

I don’t think they look hard to wear, but sometimes those flowy  materials can be super tricky unless you try them on.

Since I’m pear-shaped, I find it hard to find dresses sometimes, but all of those dresses are perfect, so I don’t get it. Plus, they’re free and being a bridesmaid is about being there for the bride and wearing something she likes. If I’m ever a Matron of Honor (never been a bridesmaid), I don’t care if I have to wear a tube dress in hunter’s orange which shows my cottage cheese, I’ll do it for my friend. I’m not trying to be mean about your friend; it just sounds weird.
