Finally, FINALLY, I’ve fallen in love with a dress. Now I want to know what the Bees think! There’s one that’s my fav, one that’s my MOH’s fav, and one that has an Evil Queen collar and a full back that I don’t love but I like the silhouette it gives me… so it’s still a contender. What do you guys think?! I’m so much happier that I’ve FINALLY found ones I love.
My MOH’s fav:
The ‘Evil Queen’ collared one that I like more now that I’m home:

I like your favorite and your MOH’s favorite the best. I found it helpful for me to think about not just how the dress looked, but also how it felt. So the fact that you didn’t like the evil queen one as much until you were just looking at it in pictures would probably rule it out for me.

I honestly really think the “evil queen collar” is the most flattering on you! Maybe it’s just because it looks like it fits you right now, so the others could be just as good with alterations. But I think the lack of ruching that the other two have makes your stomach look really flat!

I actually think your silhouette looks better in the first and second pics!

I prefer the first dress. I think it looks great on you 🙂

I like the way that the second one fits you best and I like the neckline. I think it is the most flattering. I like the detail on the first one the best, and the draped front on the third one. Sorry, I am not much help, but if I had to choose right now, I would choose the one your Maid/Matron of Honor chose.

I think the second one looks the best!

I like the second one. I think it flatters you best. I think i might’ve tried that one on too!

I think the “evil queen” dress is the most flattering from the front, but yikes, what’s going on with that racer back, lol! I would really keep considering that one though… Do you think they could convert it to a halter top and eliminate that extra fabric in the back?
I think the first one could be really pretty too, but I’m having a hard time picturing what it would look like when it’s all fitted. Right now, all the lines of the dress seem like they’re just an inch or two too high for your figure, but I think when it is the right size and fitted to you, that won’t be a problem. So yeah, I think that one could look amazing too.
For some reason I’m just not that into the second one. It’s like there is a lot of embellishment, but at the same time it isn’t really bold enough to make a statement, you know?

I agree with MissCastle…the third is the most slimming and flattering, from both the front and the back!

Greenleaf – I totally get what you’re saying! The 2nd one is sooo generic. It could be for any bride. I love the bling and the pleats of the first one. I’ve been on the phone with my mom and am leaning towards the 1st one. The racer back…. LOL. I could have it altered to cut the whole back panel out and the collar cut off, but I’m not sure I love it THAT much! Haha.

I love the first one! The appliques are gorgeous. The 3rd one is my least fav but I think that has a lot to do with the racer back. They all look great on you so I don’t think you can go wrong any way.

Wow, I’m really glad you went back! These are gorgeous, and are all much better. I really like dresses #1 and 2. The back of #3 doesn’t do it for me, and even if the dress looks slimming, it kills all the nice curves that you have in the others.
I understand that you feel like #2 is too generic; however I think that it’s the most flattering dress on you. It gives you a nice waist/hip ratio; and there’s something about #1, how it cuts in a diagonal line just below your stomach that makes is less flattering then #2.
Definitely not enough to go for that dress if it’s the one that you love, but something to consider.
One way or another, you look gorgeous in these and I’m glad that you can feel it now! 😉
