    tomatotoes :  So, I really like the simplicity of Dress #1 (Calla) and it’s very flattering on you. One thing to consider, that dress seems to have a gray tint to it.  Any dress would/will get dirty along the hem at an outdoor event, but this dress starts out looking kind of dirty. How will that look in-person and in photographs? Is it available in white? 

    Dress #2 is also lovely, but as a PP mentioned, the waist hits you too low. Shortening the straps a bit would quickly fix that. 

    I’m a sucker for a bit of lace on my tulle, so I vote for Dress #2 (with minor alterations). Good luck!

    #2 is very similar to #1 but with some added beading and work. It is your wedding day after all – bling it up! 🙂 1 and 3 I felt were nice, but too boring for a wedding.

    Love the Reagan on you!! I loved it in pics but tried it on but ended up not liking t on me, it looks great on you though! If you feel more “you” in one though that’s what you have to go with!

    They are all beautiful, but I voted for the Reagan. Like others said, Calla kind of has a bridesmaid vibe. I wore a very similar BHLDN dress as a bridesmaid last year. The Amanda is beautiful as well, but seemed a little more formal than the wedding you described. I think the Reagan would be perfect!

    I think number 1.  You can jazz it up with a statement necklace or long earrings and a nice hair do.

    Number 2 hits oddly on the waist and actually makes you look ‘hippy’ which you OBVIOUSLY are not.

    Number 3 is plain and I dont like the way you can see your tummy/belly button clearly through the fabric.

    tomatotoes :  

    Well, I voted Calla, but I could just as easily have  said Reagen , you look great in both. I think I like the classic Grecian lines of the Calla just a tad  more.  And I like the colour , as a fellow person with a similar pink/fair skin , I agree it is so much better than dead white or, conversely ,  blush

    ETA I just read what you added about impressing   his family a bit , and I think the  Reagen is a bit more noticeble that way,. It only needs the straps shortening I think , to make the waist right . And Calla needs hiking  up too, its sitting too low.

    I really like the first one on you! It won’t be bridesmaidy once you add the veil!

    In my opinion, I think it look better strapless. I’ll go for the first because it fits you  really nice like it was made for you. It looks more natural. This dress is like  a blank canevas and you can add a belt and wear awesome jewelry to make it more special.
