I’m not a huge fan of the first one and I don’t think it is worth the price. I like the second gray dress the best out of the ones you showed. Why not keep looking and find one that you really like?

I definitely do not like the silk satin separates for you, you need support on top to at least wear a bra, which the BHLDN might or might not provide (not a criticism at all, you have a great figure!).

For this reason, I would get the BHLD with the lace top so you can wear a bra with transparent straps, which are generally cooler than a bustier or strapless bras but that could be a personal thing.

I like the 3rd dress best.

I totally agree with PPs the first dress does not look like a $2,500.00 dress.

I was really surprised when I saw the pic of the expensive dress; I was expecting a big elaborate gown! I wouldnt pay $2500 for that dress, I feel like you could find that at a department store end of season sale for $50. It’s a pretty dress, just not worth the price they’re asking. 

I love dresses 2 & 3 though! Can you order one (or both) to try on before you commit to them? 

Congrats on your upcoming wedding!

jade31 :  if you are going to drop 2.5k on a dress it should at least have some inbuilt structure and some expensive fabric or details. That’s is basically an overpriced maxi dress that you yourself don’t even sound committed to. 

I’d keep looking.

Agreeing with the others, the first dress is not a $2500 dress.  Out of all of them, I like the second dress the best.

Be sure to find a dress that you truly love and that makes you feel beautiful.

The short gray one would look fabulous on you!

Congratulations on your wedding! We’re wedding twins! Fiancé and I are also getting married in Oahu in February! Although the white dress is pretty, the first grey/blue one is to die for. It’s so unique and will look beautiful with the white sand beach background

$2500 is way too much for a dress you’re not head over heels for. Try out the BHLDN ones!
