    I love the Astrid, but I think the Lyla is more wearable for other occasions.

    Neither of those are my favourite Packham dresses–I feel like the Astrid really comes off looking like barbed wire, hahah–so I’d go with the Lyla.

    All 3 dresses are definitely re wearable!  I wouldn’t wear the 3rd dress to someone else’s wedding,  but I’d wear it to anything else. The first 2 dresses I’d wear to someone’s wedding and to anything else. I don’t have a favorite out of the 3 without being able to see them on. I like all 3!

    Then I’d definitely wear it to someone else’s wedding.  It’s a really beautiful dress. I love the sleeves, they’re so girly & chic! I’m getting the vibe that you like this dress the most 🙂

    I just looked up that dress on Google….and it is amazing!  You have to get it!!! I’m in love.  And…..you have to post pictures of you in it so we can see!

    I totally plan to rewear my reception dress. I think you should get whatever you prefer. I voted for the Callie because I think it is beautiful and would be able to be reworn most. The sihoutte of the dress at knee length doesn’t scream bridal or reception.

    The Callie in champagne knee length would be killer at holiday parties or weddings!

    Not weird at all, just modify it so it no longer looks bridal! The dress I choose will also have that as a deciding factor. I want to turn it into a cocktail to dress for my anniversary, every year for as long as I can wear it.

    I probably wouldn’t wear champagne or blush to a wedding. I’ve seen a lot of wedding dresses that color. I’m sure no one would mistake me for the bride, I just like to play it safe when it comes to possibly offending someone.
