    They’re both good. I like the dark blue one best! Also, does it really matter how well it matches your coat? You won’t be wearing your coat for long when you arrive, I imagine.

    I like the last one with the scarf.

    If you’re going to wear it with a jacket most of the time, I like the light blue and dark jacket combo.

    I’m surprised that jacket doesn’t go with the dark blue dress.

    The light blue dress looks fine on its own as well! I just like the dark blue dress best. But I’m just not really into the jacket you paired with it.

    @peachacid: I like the light blue with the long dark coat. You don’t look pregnant, dresses of that cut fit everyone that way. Also wanted to mention that my fiance and his friends would LOVE your legs. They’re always talking about how they can’t stand a woman with skinny chicken legs and they’ll “take some meat anyday!” lol. Boys.

    Oh, I didn’t reailze they were navy and black. Sorry, the photos look a bit dark on my screen.

    I guess I would go for the light blue dress and black jacket. It’s a flattering combo and the black jacket looks warm so you’ll be comfortable. The light blue dress may not be as figure-flattering as the dark blue, but it’s still a good look without the jacket, too. 🙂

    You could always add a scarf similar in length to the one in last pic, but a lighter weight, indoor scarf (the silky kind) and then when you take off the jacket you could keep the scarf… the scarf will streamline your torso in the way the light blue dress doesn’t do the best job of on its own.

    Is the wedding outdoors? (god, I hope not, if it’s as chilly in PA right now as I suspect it is). If you’re only wearing your coat for going in between venues/the car, I would wear the dark blue dress (I love it, and it looks great on you) and the long dark coat, even if it’s black on navy. Then again, I wear the same coat everywhere, so I’m perhaps not the best judge of outerwear.

    Even though I think you look pretty (and not pregnant, by the way) in the light blue, it’s so clear you’re really uncomfortable in it, and you don’t want to be sitting feeling like you don’t look nice all day. Even if it’s a bit irrational (and it is, because it looks really cute), you won’t feel great, so I would skip the light blue altogether.
