So, my wedding is in less than six months (OMG!) and I still haven’t decided on a dress (OMG!!). At least I’m down to three options, and I hope to be able to decide by the end of the day. However, I need some help. I honestly think they’re equally beautiful, but I guess I’m biased, so external opinions would be highly appreciated.
Possibly useful information: Please note that all dresses were way too big. I’m getting married in a library – not a church. I will probably not be wearing a veil. My hair is long and curly, and I will probably have it down or have a half-do on my wedding day. And I’m sorry the photos are such bad quality 🙁
First up is a San Patrick dress. This is the first I fell in love with. What stopped be from ordering it immediately was that it is a little bit above my budget (but only a little), and it does not feel as light and flowy as I was hoping it would feel. Nevertheless, I think it is absolutely stunning.
Second one is Ella Rosa, and although I originally didn’t want strapless, I loved this one. It’s super light, and I love the lace under the see-through layer. What’s holding me back here is exactly the fact that it is “all I never wanted”, plus that my friends who were with me didn’t like it as much as my other two options.
Number three is another Ella Rosa, and the least expensive one of these. I loved how light it felt, and I love its simplicity – at the same time, however, I’m worried it will be too simple. Unfortunately no pic of me in this dress, but for large model pics go here.
Thank you in advance!

@nordicbride2014: As the dresses are now I prefer the second one.
I want to love the first one but I think the waistline is too low on you and it sorts of looks a bit shapeless as a result. But I think it could really work if you altered it so that the waistline hits you at the narrowest part of your waist – which is about 2 inches up from where the waistline is now – and if you poofed out the skirt a little more.
Not a fan of the third one – it looks a bit dated to me.
Did you try this Allure one – it’s similar to your first, though it does have a feature back.

Love, love, LOVE the San Patrick on you! I think it’s delicate, feminine and flows beautifully! It makes you look tall and model-esque!
i can say from experience that the quality of a San Patrick is fabulous and well made, my dress was a SP too! My seamstress raved about the fabric!

@nordicbride2014: In your size I think #1 would hit in the perfect spot! If not, it needs to be altered a tiny bit to bring the waistline up to your smallest point 🙂

The first dress is STUNNING on you!

@nordicbride2014: number 1 for sure. It’s the most flattering on you (apart from not seeing the 3rd on you) it’s romantic, elegant and feminine.
however pick the dress you truly love, doesn’t matter what anyone else thinks. I put up a poll and the dress I purchased was actually everyone’s least fave but I couldn’t be happier.
trust your heart 🙂

Dress one. It’s beautiful and romantic. I’m not a fan of dress two. The bodice seems a bit too short.

@Happy Hopeful Bee:
Thank you so much for your help. I just wanted to let you know that I decided to buy the San Patrick. I agree that the waistline is too low on me in that particular sample dress, but the one I ordered was 4 sizes smaller – so hopefully that won’t be a problem with the real deal. Can’t help being a little worried that I made the wrong choice though, but hopefully it all works out!

@nordicbride2014: Four sizes should make ALL the difference in how that top fits, good luck! You will be amazing no matter what though 😛
