    i voted the 2nd one, because that was my personal preference out of the 4. BUT based  on what you said about each dress, i say go for #1! you said you loved it the most, that’s all that you need to know!

    Dress #1 definitely! I am having serious dress envy right now… it’s gorgeous! It’s soft, romantic, and formal enough for your Catholic wedding. But the purple sash is fun and cute for your destination wedding! Maybe do a white sash (to match the dress) for your formal wedding and then change the sash for the destination? Two different looks for your two weddings! (Lucky girl!)

    I personally think there is no real “dress for body type” its all about the bride’s preference.  Some brides like poofy, some like fitted, some like alittle of both, some like lace, some like the bling, some like revealing, some dont…

    It’s all about what makes YOU feel like a bride, what makes YOU feel beautiful, what makes YOU glow with excitement picturing yourself on your wedding day in that dress

    I think they are all beautiful on you.  I like #1 the best.  It flatters you the most I find, from the cute top with the fun but beautiful bottom that is like nothing I have seen recently.  And since you said you love it the most, that’s the front runner πŸ™‚

    Congrats and good luck on choosing!

    I’m the same height as you and personally I think a ballgown on our figure will drown us out. the heels will definitely help but a ballgown just hides your awesome sexy body!

    I vote for #3 and agree with your BM that it offers drama but still elongates without drowning. Though ultimately you have to make your own choice and wear what you love!

    i think dress number 2 has the wow factor for me, im 5’6 and 89 pounds in usa standard , i couldnt find a ballroom dress that fitted me right they all swamped me and weighed me down, you look AMAZING in each dress , body shape is hard just go with what makes you go WOW

    I voted for #1. it looks great on you, and YOU love it! that’s all that matters!  I think the material is still light and airy enough for a beach wedding too!

    I voted for number three. I’m also petite [5’3″ and 90lbs], and honestly, it’s the closest to my dress, haha. I tried on a ballgown type like your first, which is stunning, but I felt it made my torso look very short. I ended up getting one VERY similar to the third. This is mine:

    Girl, I’m a Harlow bride so naturally I’m drawn to it, HOWEVER you look amazing in Hayley!! And I think that given your smaller frame, it does a little more for you (since harlow has a more irigid seperation between bodice and skirt)! 

    Let us know what you choose!

    ps: Are you buying your veil at VW?
