    Great choices!!! I would vote 1, 3, or 5! Never too early. If you like something now, get it! Might not be there three months from now. I got mine about 5 months in advance myself (before my actual wedding dress haha!)

    I was open to other colors but ended up getting a white Adrianna Papell dress with silver sequins. I’m pretty picky… so I’ve been looking for months for something beautiful, appropriate, and a reasonable cost. Found the Adrianna Papell on sale at 6pm.com 2 months before my wedding. If you love something I would suggest snapping it up

    I purchased mine already,  although I am actively trying to lose a few lbs. My dress is probably too formal for the restaurant we chose, but I saw it online and couldn’t stop thinking about it. It was a bit pricey too, so im feeling a bit guilty about that. But god, its gorgeous!

    I went to one of my favorite thrift stores 6 days before the wedding and found a dress I loved, it happened to be white with silver details. Wearing white or not is totally a personally choice, just find a dress (or other type of outfit) you love! If you love the idea of wearing white for your rehearsal dinner, do it, if you don’t, don’t worry about it. Honestly what I really wanted was sparkles, and I would have been sad if that didn’t happen, but I’m lucky I found something perfect. It doesn’t matter when you get your dress, just don’t pass up on the perfect one. 

    Personally I love the 1st and the 5th, and I think with the right accessories almost any dress can fit perfectly well with your venue.

    that pisarro nights gown is gorgeous! Where is it on sale at?

    shlobin:  

    I already found a possible rehearsal dress and it’s 11 mos away… but it was on clerance for $25 and i loved it.. We have to have rehearsal in the morning so i needed something more casual, so I went ahead and bought it now bc I loved it and it was so cheap.

    If i find something different in the mean time, fine. lol

    Also, I recently bought an adrianna papell dress on clearance for under $100 and got it yesterday. It is GORGEOUS in person and the beading is amazing. I was surprised at how heavy the package was, but once I got the dress on it didnt seem as heavy. just gorgeous. Now I need to find a reason to wear it!

    shlobin:  I have a very large collection of dresses, so wore a dress I already had. It was a sheer black lace dress with a champagne underlay that I paired with nude pumps. 

    I chose the navy blue dress, I think its stunning!!!! I don’t see anything wrong with the length at all

    “Modern” would be number 2. The others are a little dated even if in only one area of: pattern, material or style.

    In spite of it being Retro I like number 4 most because it says BRIDE !

    Hopefully only 2. This is my second marriage…

    However, I didn’t do alll this stuff the first time so maybe that’s why my first marriage didn’t last? (Just kidding, I take full responsibility for my poor life choices in my younger years)

    Anywho, I forgot to vote last time – I Love dress #3!

    To go with you venue I voted for #3, it’s gorgeous!  My sister tried on dress #2 when she was pregnant, she’s normally a size 10, and it was very flattering on her (it was the long version though but that souldn’t make a difference).  But I can’t see a blazer or shrug working with the first two dresses…the bead work is so amazing and well executed that wearing anything over it will take away from the dress and in my opinion not look right.  Number 4 and 5 are pretty but they seem better fits for a bridal shower to me…not fancy enough for the rehearsal dinner you are describing.
