All three are lovely.  My favorite is #2, with #1 as a close second.  Really, though, it’s all about the fit.  Choose the one that’s most flattering on!

What about thinking outside the box and doing a traditional Langha or sari?  They are so beautiful and textural.  (That’s what I would do!)  I wear saris to weddings whenever I get the opportunity.  (Nothing better than an Indian wedding!)

wow.  you have some beautiful choices for a beautiful location.  for me 1 and 2 are in a very close race with 1 winning out by the slightest margin.  I think the lace looks soft, romantic, flowy and unconstraining.  this is gonna be a hard choice for you. Good luck!

I personally like the Dessy dress the best, but go with whatever makes you feel best.

By The Way – My SIL is a Catholic Indian-American. Her mother and all her female, Catholic, Indian relatives wear saris. I don’t think it’s just a Hindu thing – but your Fiance would know best what is the norm in his family. They are also from southern India, not Napal, so maybe that makes a difference.

i really like the watters dress…i was trying to imagine these dresses in the flicker photos and i think the watters dress would look really elegant and clean.  it wouldn’t compete with the gorgeous scenery–just complement it!

I would wear a sari, mentioned by the other posters. They make white and ivory, I would think. It would be beautiful.

I think the Watters dress would be the best for your location…especially if it’s misty on your wedding day like it is in the pictures you posted, I think you’d look really ethereal.

Ditto on the Watters dress. After that, #1 because the beads on #2 look a bit formal for the location.

So I did a little research on Bengali, Catholic weddings.  Seems to me everyone wears saris.  Then, thinking about it, I realized that even Mother Theresa wore saris at her Catholic Mission in Bengal.  I saw some very beautiful cream colored ones with gold thread and bits of rich red trim.  I would love to get married in something that beautiful!

And if its anything like when I got to India, you feel a bit out of place if you are not wearing traditional dress.

What does his family think?

Another vote for the Watters dress.

As for the chain link fence, what about turning it into a lush green wall covered with fresh bamboo?    You could also add mini lights tucked in amongst the leaves.

I think the raw silk texture of the Watters dress would look wonderful at your location. But the other 2 are gorgeous as well, especially the Mori Lee. I am a firm believer that brides should wear whatever makes them feel the prettiest.

As far as veils and saris go, I think they certainly can go together. Like these examples:
