    None of those look very comfortable…. TBH, I think they all look like nightgowns. Sorry!

    @Barbiestylez:  I voted for 2 even though I also like one a lot.  It’s hard when you can’t try them on to see which will be best for you.  I also like the 3rd one, and while I’m totally into the puffy sleeves myself, I have a feeling they could end up going out of style eventually and leave you with some regrets in your photos 10-20 years from now.

    I think they are all lovely, bar number 3 as I’m not a fan of the sleeves. I would ask them to remove the train though. Then you can move about more easily. My dress has a train and at my alterations appointment stuff was getting knocked over by it! Haha!

    I like number 1 the most! I loved the detail on the off-the-shoulder sleeves of dress 2, but I’m not a fan of the lace near the thigh or the train. But I think all of them are good options!

    I think you should choose your ceremony dress first.  You may find something that you DON’T want to take off.  Personally, I like something like this that you posted:and then if you want something more comfortable, why not go with this other that you posted for your reception?

    I’m going to second picking out your ceremony gown first. You may find you won’t want to take it off! Don’t settle for something that you don’t love. You sound frustrated with your search for a ceremony gown, and are turning your sights on something else. Don’t pick something just to pick it, pick it because it’s right for you and makes you feel awesome.
