I like the idea of #2, but honestly, it’s not very flattering, like you said . . . especially the flower placement below your vajajay. Could you find something else in a ’30s style? If you are only choosing between these exact gowns, I would go with #1.

I like the last one–the satin mermaid/trumpet. They are all beautiful, but you have a beautiful figure, and I don’t think the other two show it off as much!

I like the second one. It doesn’t show your figure as much, but it would be hard to make your figure look bad. Get it and get a reception dress that’s tighter! Or the other way around, wear a flapper dress for your reception! Ohhh how I love spending other people’s money…

The last one by far! I agree that the second one doesn’t flatter your figure–in fact, I think you look bigger in it. The last one shows of your gorgeous figure and makes you look amazing!

I love the first one!  It has a goddess look about it.  (I hope that is the look you were going for : )

I think this isn’t what you want to hear, but you look amazing in the last one.  It blows the other two out of the water, especially the second one, which I think makes you look bigger than you actually are.  The last one really shows off your figure – I think people will still be talking about your dress ten years from now, just because you looked so good in it!  That being said, you’re clearly in love with the style of the other two dresses.  Go with what your heart tells you, and what makes you happy.
