    Your original dress is the real stunner and perfectly suits and compliments your body. I definitely vote for the first one.

    I like your original dress way more than the others. I think the ball gown looks plain and the fit and flare isn’t as flattering as your original dress.

    I suspect you know what you want, and I get the impression it is the ball gown; if you can afford another dress, I say go for it. Plus, since you already own the first dress, you could have it altered shorter and make a really comfy dancing dress for the reception. Just an idea. 🙂

    I think you look amazing in the dress you own that being said, since you now seem to want something totally different and white , i would go for the the fit and flare….

    LastGirlStanding:  Honestly the fit and flare doesn’t look good in my opinion;  i really like your champagne dress with the beading – it looks perfect on you. It’s very classy. The ballgown is okay (it’s a bit hard to tell with the put together photo, but it’s not as nice as your champagne one)

    I think a bride should always go with her heart when it comes to The Dress. Despite that, my thoughts are:

    – Out of the 3, the original dress looks best on you. Your figure looks phenomenal, and colour is gorgeous and I don’t think it’s plain at all. It gives you more flexibility to accessorise, like with a crystal-trim veil and bejewelled hair comb or pearl earrings. The fit is so good on you, and makes you look smaller than the third gown if I’m to be perfectly honest.

    – I don’t love the ballgown. I think the pleated sort of detail could be unflattering and awkward, and I kind of feel the style overall is a bit dated. I would bet also that it won’t show off your figure as well. 

    – As for the fit and flare, I think it’s a fun dress. I do think it makes you look shorter though, not as statuesque.

    LastGirlStanding:  Your dress is gorgeous!  I had a similar experience.  I bought my dress really early on and then throughout the planning process worried it wasn’t the perfect dress or that it wouldn’t “match” my wedding.  In the end, I sucked it up because I felt selfish wanting to spend that much money on a new dress.  On the day (and now looking back at photos) my dress was perfect.  Is there anyway you can try your dress on again?  That *really* helped me when I was having dress regret.  Good luck!

    You got it right first time.  Original dress is extermly flattering onyou.  The colour works very well for you.

    LastGirlStanding:  I am not normally one for ruching, but it has been done right with most of it on the top, so it does not detract in any way or add kilos.

    I gasped when I saw this dress. It was MADE for you. You can forget about the others, they all fade away into the land of insignificance…. sorry, what were those other dresses again? You mean you *actually* considered another dress after seeing this one on yourself???

    the fit and flare looks AMAZING on you! You have a fantastic figure for it!! In my opinion, you have to have REAL curves to pull off a fit and flare!! And you look a-ma-zing!!

    I vote for the fit and flare (obviously) and I bet your fiance’s jaw would DROP to the ground when he saw you!
