    I am a fan of the 5108. Have you considered having a custom made dress? It may be easier to run around town and dance in something shorter. The 5108 style should be easy for a company to replicate and add a hidden zipper where the straight part can be removed.

    Love the Mori Lee, I could see you rocking that with a little birdcage and maybe a vintage brooch at the waist.

    I like the last one. And Rio is my FAVORITE city in the world. No lie! If you’re not getting married on the beach, then I don’t see anything particular that you should wear that you wouldn’t wear to any other urban oasis wedding. Brazilian girls (even rich ones) tend to rent dresses rather than buy them, so they all have a very similar right-this-minute on trend kinda look. For that reason, I’d want to stand out (rather than the standard fitted ruched bodice, flowy/poofy skirt that everyone seems to be wearing now). Especially so if I’d be going around town taking pics and whatnot.

    PS you could definitely get away with a slinkier more sparkly dress being in rio. Maybe more glamorous. I’ll try to find an example of what I’m talking about.

    @CocoClassic:  love, LOVE Rio. Was just there last month and it knocked Sydney out of the top spot for favorite city in the world. 

    When I say the dress everyone is wearing, I essentially mean the “pleated bodice with a sweetheart neckline, drop waist, seriously fitted to follow the curves”  that you described, lol. I certainly don’t think anything is wrong with this style, but were I going all the way to Rio to get married, I’d want to wear something daring, sexy, dramatic. Something that would make onlookers say “she must be a rockstar or a model or something. Where on EARTH did she get that dress?” as opposed to “my cousin, and my aunt and 2 of my sisters wore that very dress in weddings earlier this year.” 

    For example, the back of the dress Woodstock posted took my breath away. 

    I know it isn’t quite your style, but I’d look for fabrics, cuts and details that make a serious statement. Maybe these?:
