I know you probably don’t want to hear this, but I would go with #3 if I were you. I get the wanting to have a unique dress point for sure, but on the day of the wedding I think it would feel best to have something you feel gorgeous in… Where you wear the dress and it doesn’t wear you.

Number 3 definitely shows off YOU.

Number 3 is the winner, by far, in my opinion. I also think that cut is absolutely stunning on you. Maybe you can keep looking for a dress in the cut of #3 but with a little more vintagey detail like @kala_way: suggested.

NUmber 3 is stunning!!! I dont think number 2 does you any favors, it does have nice details but the overall shape of the dress is just not as nice as number 3

The last one. Hands down! Not many people can pull off that dress shape, and the other two were just kinda “eh” in my opinion. You look amazing in the last one!

My heart skipped a beat when I saw #2.  I love vintage 20s looks, its so rich and elegant.  Not a popular answer here, but my pick.

The last one looks like amazing on you.  I have a good friend who did costuming for years in Chicago for fashion and stage and I trust his opinion so much, he has wonderful taste.  He told me when I started looking for a gown: “a wedding gown should not be an evening gown or a prom gown.”  He was just giving general advice, and I see now what he meant.  He is a fan of the shoulders and / or decorative straps.

#2 is my pick.

OMG!! I would so go with the mermaid style.  It is a very few women that have the figure to pull it  off but you can!  I agree with the coment about the placement of the flower in the vintage look- you don’t want to walk down the aisle with all on eyes on the vajajay.

I LOVE the last dress you just posted, it will be all the elements you want plus figure flattering and not overwhelm your petite figure.  LOVE IT for you! 🙂

Ohhhh, I love #3 on you, so darn pretty! It seems elegant and vintage to me (like glam vintage).  I really like your style and appreciate it!  Vintage looks great on you no matter which dress you pick, you just have to feel like a million bucks in it!

The third one is gorgeous on you.  The other two do nothing for your figure.  The first ones just dont suit you, but the last one..wow! You look stunning!
