I like #1258 the best (the second dress)

I dont like the first one because the tailored skirt (of heavy satin) does not fit with your dreamy ethereal feeling. It is more formal, like something you would wear in a hotel ballroom wedding.

I don’t like the third one because I think the straps make it look too much like a formal evening gown and not bridal enough. To me, strapless says bridal (even though I know it hasn’t always been this way throughout history, thats the way the industry is now).

 

I like the second one the best because it is soft and flowy. It is romantic. I love the beading also– it looks very Art Deco.

They are all very pretty. The only one I am really against is the first dress. I think the stiffness of the satin skirt doesn’t seem soft enough to me. The 2nd and 3rd dresses would both be pretty, but the second one is just unbelieveable.

I like the 3rd one the best and think its very glamorous. the skirt on the first dress definitely appears heavy. And I would be afraid the beading on the second dress that comes to a point on the lower stomach would be unflattering. 

Have you tried any of the dresses on?

WOW I had never heard of this line, these dresses are gorgeous! My alternate wedding universe would have me wearing these… (or Jenny Pakham). I kind of agree with Miss Leopard, the first one could be heavy. That satin skirt is probably photoshopped that smooth within an inch of the picture’s life haha.

Between the bottom two, I also agree that the middle picture looks more bridal… but I think I would choose the bottom one anyway!!!!!

@multinational:  

The last one is beautiful, much more unique than the others.

@multinational:  Oh lord no. It’s like car shopping. You go 20 different places and you only buy at one of them. Every place I have been to the consultants have been so nice, and not pressured me at all. A girl today was taking pictures for me and she said ‘Don’t worry! I do this all day!” when I apoligized for wanting so many.

I think the attendants know 95% of their customers aren’t buying that day.

I had my eye on the last dress and the bridal store said samples wont be in til March and that it is way out of my budget anyways.. My budget was $2k btw.. It is a gorgeous dress tho! Would love to see it in real brides

My though process went like this:

Dress #1 – Yuck. It looks like two different pieces stuck together. Incomplete to say the least.

Dress #2 – Pretty. Love the neckline and the buttons. Dislike the patterns the beads make.

Dress#3 – Wow, stunning. I love this dress, which is surprising as it is a lot different from anything I usually like.

I would choose dress #3, though dress #2 is beautiful too.

@multinational:  They are all gorgeous! & streamlined does not mean you lose any glamour if these dresses are any indication!

I love the 2nd one! It’s actually at the top of my list when we go try on dresses next month! I hope I like it in person as much as I love the picture.
