I really like the Watters dress because of the material and the shape. Raw silk seems to be more in keeping with the area than lace or the tulle (?) of the other two gowns, though they’re both gorgeous.

Siri has some great gowns that can be done in shantung:

So does Jenny Yoo:

I’m also a fan of Nicole Miller:

Best of luck to you– it looks like a fantastic setting! So dramatic and lush.

Watters, definitely!  The raw silk fits that location so much more than lace and beading (and I love me some lace, so I think thats a pretty objective opinion!).  But you can totally rock a veil and sari combo too 🙂

I love dress#1…I think it would suit you quite nicely…without seeing your picture…by your measurements, I think it would look very nice on you…I love lace but am not able to wear it do to my frame, but on your tall and slim figure, I bet it would be a stunner!

i really love #2… the beading is beautiful and i think it would really suit a wedding in india….#1 is a close second, but honestly, all 3 dresses are gorgeous 🙂 your wedding location looks amazing too… can’t wait to see pictures of your wedding!

I’d say the Watter’s but I’m partial to the raw silk anyway.

But DayDremer33’s 3rd link is so beautiful!  I’d think about something like that…

I saw a Platinum Wedding episode a couple of weeks ago where the bride (they got married in Las Vegas and had an elephant!) where the bride wore a dress that looked like a sari top and and skirt but more modern looking and she wore a veil. It was stunning. Does anybody know how to find a picture?

There is a slideshow from their episode on wetv.com under Sara and Deepak. You can’t really see the sari, but the picture that she’s wearing a veil, she also has a sari type dress on. She looks very bride-y.

One of my girlfriends, who is Indian-American, had a Western wedding dress made from white and gold sari fabric. It was gorgeous and was a fantastic way to meld her culture with that of her southern in-laws.

Dress 1 or 2 is my vote!!  Though you should wear what you feel the most beautiful in.  All 3 of them are gorgeous and would look fantastic in the location.  The dress may dictate how you decorate- whether it’s a more formal wedding if you wear #2 or more simple/elegant like #3.

Glad you liked my bamboo idea! 🙂

As for photographers, maybe ask the hotel in Darjeeling to recommend someone?

Looks to me like Dress #1 wins, based on your pros and cons list.  And, looking back at the pictures of the dresses and venue, I think Dress #1 will be a stunner.  I hereby change my favorite vote from #2 to #1.

I see you’ve started another thread on the same topic; maybe a consensus will develop…..

First I was going to say a sari too, but I think you don’t want to, so I think dress 3.  My girls wore watter dupioni silk dresses, and it is completely non-reflective.  So, no minuses!
