Good thing is it looks like you have the same shape in all the dresses so thats atleast something easy to take out of all of them, the next I would decide if your gonna do something similar to 2 & 3 with the soutache flowers (which is what i have on mine!) I would find some simple lace and beading for the sweatheart top so it still flows with the  dramatic bottom but doesnt take away, a great dress I think you would really like is this http://www.google.com/imgres?hl=en&sa=X&biw=1382&bih=749&tbm=isch&prmd=imvns&tbnid=nU5B3oJCFtBJAM:&imgrefurl=http://weddingtrendsfor.com/1709/maggie-sottero-spring-2012-wedding-dress.html&docid=-UZSOZpmneut8M&imgurl=http://weddingtrendsfor.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/09/Maggie-Sottero-Wedding-Dress-Abilene.jpg&w=600&h=523&ei=JfgaULmECo73qQGjiYC4Dw&zoom=1&iact=hc&vpx=413&vpy=255&dur=817&hovh=187&hovw=213&tx=123&ty=122&sig=108586724877975716877&page=1&tbnh=138&tbnw=156&start=0&ndsp=27&ved=1t:429,r:2,s:0,i:88

i think it combines the femininty of the dresses youve got here and the drama but not way to much or over the top! lol

Well, as a “soon to be” maggie bride myself, (hehehehe) I loved that maggie dress on you. I loved how the bodice is so different from the rest of the dress, HOWEVER, if you are not a fan of the bottom half DON’T GET IT because on your wedding day all your going to focus on is how much you hate the lower half instead of loving the ENTIRE dress.

I wouldn’t go with the out of budget dress, in fact, if you watch any wedding show (David Tutera, SYTOD…etc) They all say that the number 1 rule in dress shopping is to not go over budget. Think of it this way, the less you spend on your dress, the more you can slurge on things that the guest will really notice/enoy such as a wonderful venue or gorgeous centerpieces.

In the end its all just a dress in the grand scheme of things, but you still want to be happy with it. But also, don’t go with dress # 1 if you are not happy with it just because its under budget. When is your wedding?? Do you still have time to keep looking??

So what about the Maggie’s bodice extra sparkly with a textured skirt?  Can that not be done?

Hmm.. I like many of these dresses as well. I’d combine the sweetheart neckline, beaded bodice and flowered skirt of them to create your own dress

I feel like this allure C189 gown combines a lot of my favorite elements of the dresses you’ve shown:

 

I don’t want to hijack your post or anything, but this is my dress and I think it combines your dress #1 with a little bit of the dress #2, so maybe you’ll like some elements of it as well

@am.coletta:  It’s SO light! That was a big issue for me because we are also getting married in Mexico. It was the lightest dress I tried on, which definitely weighed into my decision.

 

@MissXray:  Oh how cool! I loved the wedding shoppe ha.
