    You look gorgous in long sleeves!  I think you should go with that.  I also think you’d look lovely in something like this (one of my all-time favorite long sleeve dresses):

    I like 1, 4, and 5. Don’t care for 2 and 3 at all. PS on 5 it looks like part of the issue with is that the sleeves are too long so it results in a drop waist effect. If you altered this to hit at your natural waist I think it would be a lot more flattering.

    Dont feel bad about the solo trips! Honestly, my mom, gramma, Future Mother-In-Law, and all but one bridesmaid live nearby and I went to 4 of the 8 stores i went to solo… simply based on the timing i could get an appointment that matched my own schedule that didnt match any of theirs! (kids, work, life etc)…Honestly, in one way, the solo appointments were the easiest, because i got to look at myself in the dress and make my own mind up before i saw facial expressions or heard comments! I took photos of my faves and sent them all to my group….to be honest, there was tons of feedback that didnt match what i thought, so i took it all with a grain!

    Dress 1 – I LOVE THIS DRESS. I think i tried this one on, but i do not have your figure and i could not pull it off like you are! I love the lace detail, the sleeves (and the scallop lace at wrist) and the neckline. I think this would suit a beach wedding as well

    Dress 2 – Tie for second favorite. Once it is tailored i think it would fit you really nicely. And style would work for the beach.

    Dress 3 – Stunning fit on you! Suits your figure, not sure if it suits the wedding style as much (mind you, you could pull any dress off on a beach if you wanted!)

    Dress 4 – I think the not fitting is coming from it being wrong size is all, i think this would be a gorgous option for you. 

    Dress 5 – This is the other tie for 2nd. The upper half just needs tailored and its such a romantiv flowy beach option! PS – I dont see your “hip thing” you were concerned about, you have a stunning figure!

    Good luck!

    Number 5 is gorgeous! I’m assuming they would hem it for you so that there’s no train, but it’s really lovely. If you feel like the top is too empty, you can add a necklace. Don’t worry about people pleasing though, you have to get the gown that makes you feel most beautiful. Everyone’s taste is different (see: these comments), so pick the dress you like the most and then move on. I hated shopping for a gown, too, btw.

    Wow, I’ll be honest, I usually hate most wedding dresses but #1 and #5 are really beautiful!!! I too made the same mistake of sharing photos and it really confused me to have such differing opinions. But you’ll make the right choice for you and look beautiful!

    nordicbee :  I agree. Independent of the fact that they’re all too big, none really wow me. And the first 4 all manage to look really matronly in different ways :/

    Wow! I really love #1 on you. It’s that simple dress you want but still have beautiful detailing. My next favorite is #5 – completely different style but it flatters you.

    Also remember it’s your dress. Don’t worry about everyone’s opinions because you will not be able to please everyone, but you will able to please your own-self.

    I’m glad you had a such a positive experience!

    I think #4 looks far and away the best, followed by #1. Absolutely not #2, it is shapeless.

    1 and 5 are amazing on you. When altered, you would look stunning in both. I love these dresses!
