    @Chunkyswifey143:  Definitely go with a heavier dress then south is so chilly! yup it will be spring :), but with nz it’s a different kind of spring lol. I live in australia so last time i went in november (even though it was spring) i was really cold lol, but for me 25 degree days are cold as i am used to the hot weather in aussie land :P. It didn’t rain for me when i was there in november, but i would say to expect anything as nz has it’s surprises :). It could possibly snow if the weather is cold enough though, just keep an eye on the weather getting closer to the date ^^. Oh! and daylight savings starts on the 29th of september this year and doesn’t end until april next year, so the days will be slightly longer 🙂

    @Chunkyswifey143:  I think she means 25 degrees celsius though. That’s 77 fahrenheit. Cool

    My friend got married on the top of a mountain in Queensland in winter, which I think is comparable to the South Island in spring (maybe a little warmer) It was certainly jacket weather. She wore a 1950s dress with a matching coat, kind of like this:

    I do love the cape idea though. Some designers, especially the European ones, have capes designed to go with dresses. Like these:

    If you go with the coat idea, Etsy has some interesting ones, e.g.

    I tried on the third dress myself and hated it. I think on the elongated model it looks great and the design looks evenly placed but on a my height it was just so overwhelming. i dont think your picture shows just how gold those details are 

     

    i love the second on you 

    love the back of the first but not the front 

     

    you could keep looking around

    Would you consider Anna Campbell dresses, something unique, bridal but ‘not so bridal’? Different and simple but still makes a statement.

    She’s based in Melbourne, Australia – where I’m from. 🙂

    @Chunkyswifey143:  For my personal taste, I like the look of #2 the best.  But that’s just my taste.  You should go with what makes you feel more “you”.. something you’re super comfortable wearing because all eyes will be on you..!  You don’t want to be playing the “what if” game later when you purchase something that doesn’t chime perfectly with your taste.

    I really like the first one, I think it looks great on you and will go with your desire to be un-bridal…you look great in all of them but I agree with you that the other two look typical.

    I like the second one on the model where the bottom doesn’t stick out so far.  I can’t tell if you are wearing a slip under it, but I would try it without a slip to see if it will drop down.  If so, that might be my favorite.  Otherwise, I think without question the third dress looks the best on you and flatters your body the best.
