    I don’t see pictures.  Edited: There they are.  I think the dress looks great on you, even though I am not a huge fan of what your mother called the unfinished look.  The style looks good.  

    How tall are you? <–ignore this… I think it will all depend on how dresses look on you once you start trying them on.  <–still this

    I think you look pretty fantastic! When it comes down to it, you’re the one wearing the dress. You need to love it, you need to feel like a bride in it, you need to be able to imagine walking down the aisle to your Fiance in it.

    ETA: The second set of pictures finally showed up for me. I do like both. But I still stand by what you love most.

    I still like the style of the first one over the second two.  I don’t think the mermaid/sheath style is flattering on anyone, though, so I’m not the best to ask!

    I think you look gorgeous in the Diana! Honestly, we only get one chance to be a bride. You should wear the dress that makes you feel most beautiful and bridal. Your mom might groan a little at first, but when she sees you all dressed up on your wedding day, she will love it, I’m sure. Don’t worry about what everybody else thinks. Go for the dress that fits your vision and makes you feel like a beautiful bride!

    I don’t like the bottom of the first one. It’s just not my style, the other 2 are better

    I think the Diana is much more “wow.”  The others look fairly typical to me.  However, can you do $5000 over your budget?  I think Diana costs around $7000, so that means you tried on a dress that was triple your budget.  While it pains me to say this because I love VW’s quality, you should check out the Vera Wang White collection at David’s Bridal.  There is a dress there that is very similiar to Diana but made overseas with cheaper fabric:

    I personally like the 3rd dress the more sheath like one….the bottom of the first dress i sjust too huge in my opinion, but if you love it go for it.

    @llgraham:  You look very good in all three.  Personally, I think that Vera Wang is yummy. And I am a fan of lace dresses (prefer your 2nd lace dress of the two.)

    I think I’d go for that soft, creamy full skirt of the Vera.
