So I’ve been lurking a while, and love reading all the posts on the dresses board whilst I am looking for my dress. I have found three (all from DB) that I like, but I’m finding it really hard to choose! So I’d love some opinions from others please.
Dresses 1 and 2 I would have an underskirt I think to make them a bit more poofey, although not by much. Dress 2 is also 2 sizes too big in the pic.
Dress 1 is a lovely champagne under ivory, which a lot of people have said really compliments my skin tone (I.e. Pale!) I like the beading and I liked the idea of adding spaghetti straps (bottom pic).
I loved the casual look of dress 2 (and the pockets!) as I wanted something a bit different, but I showed my Mum a pic and she said it looked like a table cloth! I would probably wear with a statement necklace.
I love the colour of dress 3 (light grey) and the buttoned back, but I’m a bit concerned about the poofiness! (Not what I thought I wanted) They did say I could take a layer or two out though, although I love the shape in the pictures.
So confused, I think I’ve decided but I would love to hear your thoughts! 🙂

I am usually not a huge fan of different colored wedding gowns, but something about the grey one totally suits you. It’s so dreamy! I love the buttons too. I think it was made for you! My runner up is dress 1. But I’m a firm vote for dress 3!

Sorry but I agree with your Mum, I think a lot of all lace dresses like that tend to look a bit like tablecloths. I can’t choose between the other 2 because I prefer the colour of 1 and the style of 3!

I really love dress 3 (i wouldn’t take any layers out!). But I think dress 1 is also a strong contender with a little umph in the skirt if you want something more traditional (white). ps. don’t add straps!

Same here! I never go for colored dresses, but that one is AMAZING! Can I ask who the desgner is (I already bought my dress, but I have a coworker getting married I’d love to show that one to!)

Skyis2high: The first two are just alright on you – although I think the overskirt on dress 1 doesn’t look great. But dress 3 looks amazing on you! The way the bodice is fitted gives you a wonderful shape, and the skirt has a nice bit of drama without overwhelming you and makes you look so slim. Your figure looks amazing in it, particularly from the back and side! (although that might be unfair to the front, but that picture is from further away so it’s harder to tell)

All look lovely but no. 3 is just stunning!

Also I love the way you’ve disguised your face. You look extremely surprised to find yourself wearing a wedding dress and it’s really very funny.

I’m usually not really a poofy dress type, but I think the poof of dress 3 really gives you a gorgeous silhouette. Plus the color looks really great on you too! 🙂

Thank you so much everyone! I really appreciate the input 🙂
NOTLBride -The grey dress is Vera Wang @Davids Bridal (VW351178) and I think is great value. It also comes in white and ivory which I considered, but I think the grey colour is what makes it for me.
Chronicwhimsy -haha, I was very surprised to find myself in a wedding dress! The first time I saw myself in one felt surreal!

#3 looks beautiful! The first two dont do anything for you and the lace on the second does remind me a bit of my grandmother’s tablecloth (Sorry!)

Just threw in a vote for 3. I really like #1 as well, I like the tulle (or organza?) layer, but #3 blew it away. It’s a great combination of fit, colour (ivory might not be as dramatic) and overall “wow”. Good luck with your decision!

The grey dress looks amazing on you as is. I wouldn’t take any layers off.
