    I think the original dress style looks fantastic on you! Of all of your 3 pictures, your original dress is the most flattering on your figure.  If you are insistent on changing the style of the dress, than I vote for #3 – drop waist.

    I think it looks amazing as is (the second isn’t that great, it just looks kinds frumpy with the lack of structure, and the third is okay but I think where it comes in and flares hits you in a bad place and makes your hips look bigger than they are).. And I’m not much of a mermaid/fit-flare fan at all, but this particular one looks banging on you!!! This makes me wish I had tried one on!!!

    First of all, you look gorgeous! Second of all, I honestly don’t see a big difference between the three styles… but I think number 2 is my favorite, followed very closely by number 1.  Bottom line is you look great and shouldn’t worry!

    amf9201:  Keep the original style. It looks incredible on you…don’t mess with it. And don’t fret over what your FI says. Guys make these offhand comments about what they do and don’t like in wedding dresses but the reality is that his jaw will hit the floor when he see YOU in it. Put what he said out of your mind, girl. You look beautiful in this gown.

    I think your dress is so gorgeous!! I prefer #1, but if you arent crazy about it, i dont see a huge difference between 2 or 3, so whichever you’re more comfortable in. Your FI’s comment about not liking that style shouldnt bve a huge deal though, because TRUST ME, he wont even notice its that style, or will forget he even said that. My DH hates ‘messy’ things and i was positive he’d hate my dress because it was quite busy in the skirt, but he loved it (whether he’s just saying that to make me feel good doesnt really matter to me lol)

    Your body looks amazing in the fit and flare. Don’t change it.  The other styles aren’t as figure flattering
