Time is running out for me! I still haven’t found my dress and I’m getting married in July 2010. I went on Saturday with one of my bridesmaids, brother, and uncle (my mother passed away when I was 19). I tried on the Enzoani Bastia gown(pictures a bit barely as it was taken with my cell camera) and felt that it was flattering to my figure, but just not the one. I left the store with the idea that one fo these were it. I get home to show my FMIL and she isn’t thrilled about the gown . I have a wonderful relationship with her, but she’s stuck on one gown that I tried on Maggie Sottero’s Hunter ( don’t have a picture of me in gown). I have no idea what to do. I think I’ve tried on over 40+ dresses and still don’t feel like any of these are it. Please help! What have your dress shopping experiences been like?

I think the first gown is overwhelming. The second one looks amazing on your body!

The second picture looks amazing on you. I think it flatters your body! It shows curves without looking too curvy. I vote for the 2nd one!!!

I’m not really liking the first at all. I don’t think it flatters you and I don’t think it flatters itself either…
The 2nd though…. wow… it makes you look Amazing! I think I’d take the 2nd over all 3

There is a lot going on with that first dress but the second one looks gorgeous on you. The third one would probably look great as well but I love the detail on the second.

i like the first one, but honestly it depends on what you feel like a bride in…

I also love the second one on you, and I think the third one would look great on you too. The first one seems a little busy in all the wrong places; at least for me. You should go with what you want. Some girls don’t feel the “OMG, this is the dress!” I knew the gown that I picked out was “the one” but I didn’t cry or anything when I picked it out. I only cried when I got home and was looking at it by myself. I think it was because I didn’t really have anyone to go with me. My mom passes away 12 years ago, and I was missing that, but I do know that the dress I got is “the one”. I do love it. I know you will find “the one” for you too. Just go with what you feel is best for you. It is your day, and I am sure that once it is all put together on your day that your FMIL will love it too.

I like the 2nd dress!! Honestly, I think you have a lot of time left so don’t rush it if you haven’t found the one yet, I’m sure there’s a dress out there that you’ll fall in love with and well as your FMIL (if thats importatnt to you)!

I like #2 and #3 (though of course I’d love to see you in #3!)

I agree with many of the previous posters. I don’t like #1 very well…it’s got too much going on. I also agree that you need to pick something YOU feel beautiful on, and don’t worry about what your FMIL or anyone else says (including us). Confidence in your gown makes a huge difference. If YOU love how you look in it, it will show and you will look gorgeous!!!
Btw, I also felt the same way you did, about running out of time and not having found the dress yet. I probably tried on a good 70-100 dresses, no joke! (I’m getting married July 2010 too). I liked so many dresses but none of them felt like “the one.” What I eventually decided to do was to order my dress custom made by Milly Bridal, putting together all the best parts of the dresses I liked. Check out this thread if you’re interested…and good luck!

I like #2 better than #1. I would love to see you in the Sottero gown. I bet it looks amazing
