Hey Bees! I have narrowed my exhaustive dress search to 5 gowns I love. They are each special in their own way and I feel great and so happy in all of them. I think I’ve fallen in love 5 times! It’s hard for me to chose, so please help me. One sales lady advised me that they all look good and work for me, and that now it’s more of a matter of what I want to look like. Do I want to look romantic, classic, or sexy (my mom’s words lol). I just don’t know. My wedding is going to be at a botanical garden in May. I want a dress to be fitting for that type of setting with beautiful flowers and a romantic feeling. Dress #1 and #2 are more classic and romantic, and I could see myself looking back at it in 30 years and it not looking dated. Dress #3 is tight, sexy, but is it too trendy? I don’t know how it will look many years from now. #4 is very dramatic and literally perfect for a garden wedding. My personality isn’t dramatic and attention seeking, so I’m surprised I like this dress My boobs look wide in the pictures because the dress doesn’t fit. After alterations the width of the boobs will be the same as my waist. #5 looks a little sad in the picture, but in real life it sparkles and is soft and flowy – very sweet.
Now tell me about YOU, when you picked your dress did you choose to go with more classy or trendy? Did you go with what you liked on you at the moment or did you consider going a little safer for something that is timeless and would always look good? Thanks for helping! I know this was long, now onto the dresses…

You’ve found some lovely dresses here. My favourites are 1, 2 and 5. I don’t care much for 3 on you, I actually think your figure looks better and hotter in dress nr 1. Dress nr 4 is a little too big for my taste, both the volume of the skirt and the flower applications. Dresses 1, 2 and 5 are all of a similar style, classic cuts with lace/flower overlays and would be lovely for a garden wedding.
It’s so easy to get swept along when shopping for wedding dresses, there are so many gorgeous dresses out there and it is hard to pick just one of them and say No to all the other beautiful dresses. I think that’s why some brides wear several dresses because limiting yourself to just one is difficult!
For me, I was in the same situation as you with a selection of lovely dresses that would have all worked and I would have been happy to wear any of them. In the end I decided to go for a dress that had all the elements I had wanted before I went dress shopping (lace, not strapless, low cut back). The dress I chose has a fairly classic cut but it is different from a lot of dresses you see today and the fact that it is unique also contributed to my choice. But really, what made me chose my dress was that I loved the way I felt when wearing it!

Dresses 1 and 2 look the best on your figure…i’m more partial to #2, though!

I like 3, but I may be biased because that is my dress too!

Dress #2 definitely! I think it has the feel that you are looking for and it really looks great on you. You’re figure looks fantastic in it, definitely the best in that one out of the five! I also love the back and the detailing. #1 is a close runner-up because it also seems to fit your theme and looks great on you. I think #3 is not the right feel for your wedding. #4 is too much dress for me, lol, and #5 just looks too plain 🙁 #2!!!!

I love 1 and 2…. 3 is okay, and not a big fan of 4 and 5.

Thank you everyone for your honest opinions! Please keep them coming. 🙂
@sevogirl I normally wouldn’t have picked this dress but I loved how it looked on other bees here so I decided to try it on. I looked at your post with your dress on. It looks great on you!

I love #5, but it looks a bit like mine, so I’m biased! Is it Watters Desdemona? I really wanted to try it on, but the store didn’t have it in stock.
