Help me Bees! I am stuck– an indecisive bee needs your help! I will be having a less-formal beach wedding in August and need to take one of these dresses home very soon! Please tell me what you think! 🙂
Dress 1: The Classic Lace Up
Pros: The material feels light and I feel like I can immediately have a good time in this dress. The beading is pretty and the lace up back is pretty. This is the dress that under my first impression I thought would be the one.
Cons: The dress looks very tight and might make me look a little boxy rather than elegant. It is not flowy– rather stiff, which makes it seem less beachy. The waist on the back is horizontal which is a tiny bit less flattering than straight.
Dress 2: The Classic Button Up
This dress is by the same designer as the lace up one, and only slightly different. It has a zipper in the back that is hidden by fake buttons all the way up.
Pros: Again, this one has light material and is already short enough so that I can walk which makes me able to envision myself dancing and having a good time in it. The way the cut is on the dress it makes me look a little more curvy and more feminine.
Cons: The rousing on the tummy is a bit loose and could look like I have more of a tummy than I do. It is a very simple plain dress with no frills. Maybe that is a pro and a con.
Dress 3: The Flowy Dress
Pros: It is flowy and feminine and pretty. Another pro is that most people like this dress on me (when I have asked people to vote) and it is only $199. This is the dress that I feel I look prettiest in when I look at the pictures (but less so in person).
Cons: The material dress is heavy (which might keep me warmer in the fog) and it is so long that it is hard for me to imagine myself moving in it. It’s hard for me to imagine my self having fun and dancing cuz I’m kinda bogged down. It is a white dress and I would have preferred ivory or off white (too late to order). The broach is a bit much but pretty from a far.

I like the first one on you best and based on your descriptions, it sounds like you like this dress. The flowy one is also pretty, but if you aren’t comfortable in the dress, it will make for a less pleasant wedding day. Just my 2 cents.

I voted for number one, but I love number three the best…but if you are not comfortable and it is too heavy, you will be HOT and humid in that dress. It HAS to be one of those three…lol…

I still love 3 – and there are over 100 people who agree! (from your other poll)

I really loved the first one when I saw it because i just love lace ups. But you’re having a beach wedding and it seems a bit stiff. The flowy one is so graceful and beautiful. I voted for flowy, I love it.

You look beautiful in all 3, but I think the first dress is most flattering on you! Your waist looks very tiny in it!

I think the first one looks stunning on you – I would never have said you looked boxy in it. #1 is my first pick, followed by #3. You will look amazing in any of them!

Opps.. Change one vote from button to flowy.

OMG – Number 3 is my dress! I’m wearing it on the beach in just a couple weeks 🙂
EDIT: On second glance it’s not, but damn close! What did you end up with?
