    Dress #2 followed by #4, both are gorgeous on you and I think would suit your venue perfectly. I think #2 could be altered to a sweetheart, even taking into account the beading.

    I picked 4 because it screams beach wedding to me and it was actually one I looked at when I was picking out a dress!

    #2 or #4. I don’t like slits, especially on a wedding dress, and #3 looks heavy and more like something you’d see in a ballroom.

    @SleepyBee: 4 because it’s my favourite on you, it doesn’t look too heavy for your DW and think the one shoulder look also goes great with a DW

    #1 is actually my favorite, minus the slit. I think it’s a little va va voom in a not so good way for a wedding.

    I love #1 because it has the unexpected slit, but you’re right, it doesn’t “hug” your shape as much as the others. I like the DB on you already own! 🙂

    I love the last one, but if you want a little more WOW try on this one from DB; sweeheart neckline, fitted bodice and blingy wow factor! It’s also $750!  I almost bought it, but thought it was a bit too much for an elopement http://www.davidsbridal.com/Product_Satin-Fit-and-Flare-with-Sweetheart-Neckline-WG3477_Bridal-Gowns-Shop-By-Designer-Davids-Bridal-Collection

    I hate dramatic model pics, so here’s some normal girls…the first is from the bee

    I actually feel that the slit isn’t very….elegant. The rest of the dress doesn’t have the wow factor. Number 3 looks nice on you but if its uncomfortable do not do it-you will regret that. Think about the many hours you will be in that dress. I love 2 and 4. I voted two but after looking at the pictures a few times I actually like 4 the best. I know you don’t think it’s “wow” but sometimes simple and understated is a lot more “wow” than ornate dresses. It’s your wedding day and you are going to be glowing and radiant. Your dress should accessorize your beauty, not overpower it. You want people to think “she looks so beautiful” over “what a beautiful dress.” I wish you luck!

    I think both 2 and 3 are actually pretty heavy for the setting of your ceremony (especially 3!). I really like both 1 and 4. I love the slit on 1, and I don’t think it’s too “sexy” for a wedding at all. I do think that 4 compliments your shape better than 1, and I think the detailing along the side matches your venue. Bonus: you already own it!

    @SleepyBee: I say wear what you feel best in regardless of your ceremony setting! Although, I am wearing a satin dress for my park ceremony so clearly I don’t follow the rules Tongue Out I’d have to say 2 and 4 give you the WOW factor.

    Prefer the last dress, both on you and for your setting. It’s the most flattering. The first dress – I don’t think thigh-high splits belong on a wedding gown, personally. It’s also not as flattering. The second has a lot going on, especially with the pick-ups. The third looks good but too heavy for a destination wedding.

    I like the last one.  The first one is very “Angelina Jolie 2 years ago” 😛  The slit trend has kind of come and gone IMO.
