    The first one is perfect!! Do you have to add sleeves? I love it just the way it is… I’m actually having minor dress regret looking at this dress, it’s gorgeous! I’m having a morning wedding too ๐Ÿ™‚ welcome to the bee!

    Tiered lace or lace v-neck (esp. in your size and altered because you already look incredible svelte and lovely)! 

    #2 makes you look too boxy up top (and no one wants boxy boobs)!

    I see that a lot of people have voted the lace tiers. While I think it is extremely pretty I don’t think it is for you. I dislike horizontal tiers on skirts because they make girls look wider and shorter – and I think this dress also adds bulk to your lower stomach and hips, which is not flattering.

    It is also probably not the right style of you if you do want to look taller – which is think is an important factor when the groom is so much taller than you.

    My pick is dress #3 because it would be the best dress for making you look taller (the straps make the dress longer, the v-neck elongates your body, the a-line also makes you look taller). I also think it is the closest to the Art Nouveau vision you have in mind. But I see what you mean about the sparkles for a morning ceremony – I’d be looking for another version of this that was just lace. Like this one:

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    I do like #2 as well – but if you’re thinking of adding sleeves I would suggest going with a lace bolero – then you could jsut take it off for the reception.

     

     

     

    By the way, I don’t see any reason that you can’t have a bit of a train for a morning wedding. After all, Kate Middleton’s wedding was at 11am and you know the size of her train! I would agree that a train would be too much if you weren’t getting married in a church – but you are.

    My favorite is the second one. I think the tiers on dress 1 draw the eye out to make you look wide, which you clearly aren’t. 1 is still nice, but 2 is better for your figure. The v-neck one, IMP, is not at all flattering.

    #1 is so gorgeous on you, that’s my favorite!  I’m also having a morning wedding, outside on a farm.  I wouldn’t worry too much about suiting the dress to the venue—maybe a super-fitted satin ruched mermaid or something really glamorous would be an inappropriate choice, but it seems like all of your tastes in dresses lean to the intimate, soft, romantic side and would suit your vision perfectly.  ๐Ÿ™‚  

     

    Rock the dress you love and no one will go “oh, wow, that’s gorgeous, but it doesn’t suit a morning wedding.”  They’ll just be blown away by how beautiful and happy you look!

    I’m surprised at how many people like the tiered lace one – I think it’s because you kind seem to like it most and so the bees are following that (I find that they’ll almost always agree with the bride and tell her to pick the one she likes best).  The reason I don’t like it the best is because I think it makes you look bigger than you actually are.  The lace V-neck lace one looks the best on you, IMO.  You have a super tiny waist in it and it’s just really flattering and the lace is absolutely gorgeous.  The V-neck is very flattering on your chest, you won’t need to find a jacket or anything, and I’m sure you can do something in alterations for the cleavage, if necessary (it might not be too bad once you order it in your size).  So, I voted for the last one.

    I’m also going to post some more dresses that I think have Art Nouveau elements to them (I love Art Nouveau, and squeed a bit when you metnioned it). 

     

    Justin Alexander

    WToo

    Pronovias

    Benjamin Roberts

    Grace Loves Lace

    BHLDN

    Claire Pettinbone would be another obvious choice but I’m assuming she’s out of your budget, as she is for most people!

    @clairebbbear:  + 1 on why the third dress (or a dress of that style) is more flattering than the first dress.

    The dress with tiers is undeniably pretty, but I do think it makes you look somewhat wider than you are, given the horizontal lines and also the bulk that multiple tiers add. 

    Am not loving the second dress, it’s a bit formal and generic for me.

    Love the third dress on you. It elongates your figure and makes you look slimmer and taller. Really accentuates your little waist. I’m a sucker for a keyhole back too!
