I was lucky enough to attend a BHLDN trunk show and just LOVED their dresses. Excellent quality, great fit. Really fabulous dresses.
I have become very picky about quality a little late in the game, mostly because I was so dismayed by the quality of my dress… Long story, post to come later.
But I digress. This post is not to talk about that dress. It’s to talk about the fun reception dress! 🙂
Would love your input on these 5 dresses and which one you think looks best on me.
(I actually dislike one of the 5 quite a bit but I won’t mention which one. I have faith in the hive not to pick that one as the favorite. :))
– Ceremony 3:30pm. Cocktail 5:30pm. Dinner/dancing 9:00-3am. (This dress would be for the dinner/dancing part.)
– Venue = chateau
– My other dress is a lace fit and flare.
– My ideal reception dress would be a colored sheath or column dress (blush/pink/cream/honey/oyster/beige) in satin or silk charmeuse but I have yet to find it. If anyone has any good inspiration for something like this, please share!

Love the long beaded BHLDN, it’s gorgeous on your figure and the back is stunning.

@chateau2013: I love the second dress (the Pippa knockoff). If I had the figure for something like that, you better believe I’d be rockin’ it! It’s so classy and elegant (and still bridal), and it looks amazing on you.

The long sparkly one highlights your body, but it’s really elegant

I love the 3rd and 4th dress. I can see why you’re having trouble choosing.

I like the two long dresses. Sorry, but the short ones don’t seem very “bride” to me. The first long dress (second pic) is my favorite.

I love that third dress. They’re all beautiful, I think the first is very sweet which doesn’t sound like a fun reception dress so maybe not what you’re looking for. But I think the 3rd is the perfect reception dress, and it is making me want a reception dress…

@jennmariee: i could definitely go for “sweet”. in general, i gravitate to “sweet” rather than “sexy” so that first dress is totally my speed. but i think the 3rd dress is definitely out of character for me which makes it special. i really liked it, and i kind of feel like going a little bold… thanks for the input!!! 🙂

I really love that 3rd one!!! I dislike the first dress. I think #2 looks great on you also and not many people can pull that silhouette off. The last 2 look like regular party dresses And I wouldnt want to change out of my wedding dress for them.

Isolde gets my vote. I have a couple of dresses from BHLDN and they are extremely good quality. I think you should go long, and the Isolde has more wow factor than the Pippa dress. Plus…I’m a little tired of the McQueen knock-offs, maybe. The Isolde doesn’t look like it’s trying to be anything except itself.

I love 3 and 4. I like 2 a lot as well. 1 is boring and very typical and 5 is too busy.
