So after much family drama my sister narrowed her choices down to these three dress styles. All of these are at David’s Bridal….her first experience trying on wedding dresses.
1. She loved but didn’t like the fact that it didn’t have a train
2. I absolutely loved and she said her FI would love but her BF and our mommy said no…it was too sexy…LOL
3. I like everything but the waistline…I think it makes her look pregnant.
Which style do you guys think looks the best? I told her I would do a people poll…LOL. She wants to be able to narrow her search at the next salon now that she has an idea of what looks good on her figure.
EDIT: Her face looks like that on the 3rd pick b/c I was telling her she looked pregnant…LOL

The second one! Your sister has some great curves and the other two make her look thick (she’s not, but that design isn’t flattering on hardly ANYONE who isn’t a size -12).

first – your sister is gorgeous!
second – i would say, i am so jealous! she has the shape for all three of those dresses. she cannot go wrong! i’d say the way she’ll have to pick is what kind of wedding she’s gonna have…my fave is the first as well. maybe she can find another one like that WITH a train?

I like the last one! Didn’t get the “she looks pregnant thought”. lol The 2 one is very sexy! The 1 is really pretty, but it doens’t look like a wedding gown to me for some reason.. but the last one she looks really pretty in!

🙁 sorry but i dont think shes rocking any of them and shes such a gorgeous lady who should rock her wedding dress
#1 is my fav but there is not train so the bride no like
#2 im a bit meh on
#3 beautiful dress but her figure is hiding in all that fabric
did she picked the dresses or did the assistant pick? i think she should ask them to pick out a dress to see what they think would look great on her

I like the first one the best. She has to decide how important having a train is though.

I think the 2nd one is the best. She has a great figure and it looks fabulous on her. The runner up is #1. #3 is not flattering at all. It totally makes her looks bigger than she is.

@msmonicka…my other sisters wanted to stage a revold in David’s Bridal when I said I didn’t like dress #3. My sister has been following me around her whole life so I know what she likes and what looks good on her…and #3 wasn’t it. They tried pressuring her into buying it but I convinced her to wait until I uploaded the pics onto my laptop so she could see for herself.
@KM….my vote was #2 as well but she doesn’t want to offend anybody by wearing something too sexy. I think she looks fabulous. She is almost 6ft tall and wears a size 8 in clothes…although she plans on being a 6 by September. She is taller than her FI but he doesn’t care a bit…LOL. That last dress especially made her look chunky to me.
@krissycake…I will pass along the compliment. She certainly hit the jackpot in the shape/size dept. Curvy AND thin…damn her…LOL

I have to say — your sister is the first person I’ve seen in that second dress who I think can really pull it off! I have seen it on other brides to be on other forums, and I think you really need that tiny tiny waist for it!
If that one is definitely out, then I prefer the first to the third. I love the detailing on three, but I think the fullness does give her a pouch where she obviously does not have one!

Well, I think the second one is the most flattering on her, but I am IN LOVE with the first one – it looks similar to Mrs. Cowboy Boot’s dress!

@mimosa…I think the reason why I don’t really like #3 is because my sister has a long torso and the dress is cutting it in half. To me it makes her look stumpy. The fabric was beautiful though. She is going to another bridal shop to see if she can find something made with the same fabric but with the waist lower.
@eva…she skipped out of the dressing room in #1. Of course it will be longer than what is shown on the picture b/c my sister is very tall and they have to special order the dress for her. NONE of my sisters like it though. It was just her and me loving #1.
@zippy…I told her that maybe she can find something that outlines the shape of her upper body and maybe is poufy with a train at the bottom.
Our next stop is Alfred Angelo….

@Amaryllis…I said pretty much the same thing…I had to call her a heffah on principle b/c she looked so good in the dress…LOL. I like #1 as well. She said she would have bought it if it had a train. She doesn’t think that she will feel like a bride without one.
@Amanda…it’s so girly…she came out and said…”I feel like a girl in this one”…LOL.

I agree with mostly everyone, #3 doesn’t look as good on her!
I actually like #1 the best!

I love, love, love the first one. So sad she didn’t like the no-train. The second one is just kind of meh to me. I don’t think she looks pregnant in the third one, but it just doesn’t give me a “WOW” vibe. I say keep looking!
