I set out to find really simple dresses (like the BCBG Carly Tiered dress with darker sash and the JCREW Arabelle dress with the mummy kind of gauzy fabric). They are sweet dresses and in my normal comfort zone. Then I went to a discount bridal salon and found the other two, which are so flattering, but fancier than I had intended. They are outside of my usual comfort zone, which is great! I never had a “crying” moment, but I love them all and just can’t decide! The women in my life have varying opinions. The men love the Mikaella (strapless, ruched top, lace middle, and gathered bottom). The Pronovias Heraldo chiffon dress (with sweetheart neckline) is really sleek and elegant. My wedding is coming up and I need to just choose one! By The Way – it’s a pretty diy wedding in my parent’s big backyard with southern style bbq. I had intended for it to be low key. Do I need to scale the dress to that?
The dresses are posted in this order:
1. Pronovias Heraldo
3. JCREW Arabelle
4. BCBG Carly Tiered
Thank you very much for your opinions!

@tkdtkdtkd: Do you have photos of you in the dresses?
That would help us advise you.

Somehow I voted for the wrong one. I MEANT to vote for the one I assume is Pronovius…the flowy chiffon one that isn’t the Jcrew…Jcrew would be my next choice…but that might just be my personal taste. I don’t generally care for pick-ups.

I’m not sure which one it is, but I think the first one would be perfect and it looks so good on you 🙂

I voted for the one in the first picture which I assumed was the Pronovias….

I really love the Jcrew Arabelle. The top is gorgeous, and it looks amazing on you.

I love, love, love the second and third ones. The second is a bit dressier, the third is a bit whimsical. Both are so, so beautiful on you! I’d say you couldn’t go wrong with either one.
By the way, your wedding sounds like what my wedding is going to be like, too! Yay for daytime, backyard weddings and southern barbecue! : ) I’m wearing a simple dress from The Limited:

I like all of them except the Mikaella because I’m not a fan of pick up skirts. And I think it’s a too fancy for a daytime backyard wedding.
Of the 3 I actually like the BCBG one the best. I think it’s the most flattering, it’s a little unique and it’s definitely bridal imo.

I voted for the 3rd picture but I’m biased b/c it’s similar to my dress AND I am getting married outside as well.

I LOVE the third dress (JCrew?) – like alot!!! You look awesome in it!!

I think they all look fantastic and would be all be perfect. But for a daytime wedding, I’m partial to the first and last ones.
If you’re having vintage touches, the last one for sure.

I like the J. Crew the best.
I like the fit of #2 the best but I really don’t care for the pickups in the skirt.
All the dresses look great on you though.

Is the poll in the same order as the pictures? I like the 3rd one and then the 2nd one in that order.

I think you look fabulous in all of them and they would all work for your backyard wedding except #2. I honestly dont like the dress. I voted #3 its my fav! good luck!
