    My favorites are dress 2 and dress 4, they show off your figure beautifully ! However, my safe choice would be dress 2. The alterations (since you’re 5’2) won’t really change the overall look of the dress ; but I’m afraid it might unbalance your silhouette when they cut dress 4 to your height (and especially if you’re going to wear flats). It might look like you are shorter than you actually are. 

    Honestly these are all beautiful choices, but both for how flattering it looks on you and for the practical aspect of it (what it will look like after alteration) my heart is set on dress 2. 🙂

    I REALLY like number 2, it looks like it fits you perfectly and is  stunning but not over the top. 

     

    Would you consider a cathedral length veil as a substitute for a longer train? Out of all the dresses I tried on, I felt like it was the train that made dresses heavy And harder to move in.

    I voted #6 but on second thought, love #2 more.  I think you have all terrific dresses to choose from, and they seem to fit well with your “wants” list!

    #2 makes your figure look divine – and you said it is light. I have health issues that affect my dress choice, too, so I get how important that is. You want to feel good on that day!

    Have you tried any that are a true mermaid style? I think you have the figure for it and it would really show off your curves.

    @justnaturallyme:  2 is my fave, but 3 is a fairly close second.  Although, the hi/lo dress is cute, it’s not as classic/yet modern as the others, it’s more trendy.  I’d say narrow it down to two and make a t-chart with th pros and cons.  You don’t have much time so I know you must be excited yet a little stressed.  Get this off your plate so you’ll have it in time.  Good luck and Congrats!

    I love the Maggie Soterro Divina on you, so I voted for that one. It’s really an amazing dress. However, I also love the second dress — the WToo — and it’s lighter and more comfortable given your health issues.  If you can get beyond the fact that you wish it had a longer train, this would be a wonderful choice for you.

    I don’t care for 3,5, or 6.  I do love the train on 1 and 4 but if you’re uncomfortable I wouldn’t go with them – they would make great pictures though.  I think 2 is a good choice for comfort, and it’s super cute too.  Also, your train is going to be bustled 90% of the time anyway right?  So why not go with the cute one that’s comfortable too?  Final word: 2 and 4 are my favorite.  Good luck!

    I think the Dulconee is most flattering you, followed by the Divina. It sounds like the Dulconee will be easier for you to wear. Honestly I don’t like the ombre one at all, I’m sure it’s pretty in real life but in photos it just tends to look kind of dirty.
