The first one! I love the neckline and the dress looks fabulous on you. #2 is way over the top IMO. Three is okay, but not as striking as #1

I love dress number 1 on you!! I also think it will very much fit your outdoors, country wedding.  So beautiful!

Dress 3 was my wedding dress, and I did remove the tassels!! I think it works best on very straight body types; I don’t have a lot in the cleavage or hips department, so it was really flattering, and accencuated the few curves I have.  I can see that if you do have curves, it would feel like you’re popping out of the dress.

@mademoisellesacha:  Welcome to the Hive! 🙂 

I adore dress #1 on you, you look great and it’s definitely not a “mature” dress so that’s definitely not something you need to be worried about. You’ll be a beautiful bride.

Dress number 1! It looks great on you, and sounds like it will fit with your venue and wedding style perfectly! My second choice would be dress 3, but it seems more garden party than country-chic to me. It also looks like it has some kind of dianond shape pattern on the stomach?

I don’t really like dress 2, it’s nice enough but one-shoulder doesn’t do it for me, and you sound like you’re fairly non-plused on it too.

They all look WONDERFUL on you! You have a great shape for sure 😉
I would say I like the 1st one the best only because it is so classic. I just always think about, “Will I still love this dress in 10/20/30+ years when I look at my wedding photos.”

Congrats!

I love # 1 and #2!

I do love the particular elegance of #1 though, so it might win by a teensiest of margins.

@mademoisellesacha:  Congratulations on your engagement and (quickly approaching! yay!) wedding!! I loved reading your post about what a great experience you had shopping for dresses. Maybe it sounds weird of me to say (type?), but reading about it made me feel more cheerful and happy. I always think it’s a wonderful thing for a bride-to-be to get that amazingly fantastic “dress experience”. It definitely doesn’t happen for everyone. (Didn’t happen for me — probably why I love reading about them! Ha, ha!)

I think you look beautiful in each dress you posted. BUT, Dress #1 is absolutely my favorite of the three. It is stunning on you. It looks like it was made for you, and, from reading your post, it sounds like this is the dress that gave you “the magical moment”. I wouldn’t worry about looking too mature in the style. On your wedding day, you are going to look like a gorgeous, young bride. Everyone will be thinking about how beautiful you are, and nothing else!

Good luck with the rest of your wedding planning adventure. I love the sound of your venue. It sounds amazing and fun!

you look great in every dress, but WOW dress 1 on you is divine. i can just see it working so perfectly with your venue. 🙂 it looks soo romantic and elegant. dress number 2 looks great on you as well.  i understand wanting a bigger dress (my dress is somewhere between those two, also tulle and lace) but after getting a bigger dress i’m having regret that i didn’t get something closer to your first choice.
