    @MrsVega2b:  the 2nd one is beautiful on you, but I also like the first. Im not a fan of ruffles so I dont like the 3rd. I feel like ruffles arent as forgiving as everyone thinks, it just adds more fabric and doesnt accentuate what you want.

    They all look fantastic on you! But if I had to pick, I’d go for either dress 1 (swirliness) or dress 3 (ruffles). The second dress seems quite wide at the bottom. I voted for the first one because I thought the lace-up in the back was more figure flattering than the one in number 3.

    That’s my 2 cents. But seriously, you can rock any one of those dresses! Let us know which one you pick!

    Hi @MrsVega2b:  Frist and foremost I see you are NEW to WBee… so a BIG Welcome to “the Hive”

    You look GORGEOUS… and are going to look STUNNING on your Wedding Day, no matter what dress you choose.

    Personally tho, I’d say go for the Fairy Tale Princess … and Dress # 2 (and that is how I VOTED) as it is the most figure flattering.

    The other two look great also (especially from the waist up… lol boobalicious AWESOMENESS)

    BUT in truth you are a girl with curvier hips (I am too) … anything that emphasizes that left to right lineage is going to make that area look wider than it truly is, and BOTH the other 2 dresses do that…

    # 1 with the rouching and # 3 with the ruffles (check out both the rear view pics)

    As your Guests are most likely going to see you from behind during the whole Ceremony… you really should look your best back there (as well as from the front)

    Hope this helps,

    The second one with the veil is the best I think.

    I voted for the first dress. You are one of those lucky girls who has a nice waist and hourglass figure, and I think this dress shows it off the best.

    Dress 2 is lovely too, but it doesn’t highlight your waist and curves as well. It is more a dress for someone without a waist, who has something to hide and wants to cover up more. But I think you should flaunt your figure!

    @MrsVega2b:  Welcome to weddingbee! I can see why you are having a tough time choosing!!

    My 2 cents:

    Dress 1 pulls you in, in all the right places. But I’m not fond of the layers at the back of the dress. (which is just my personal taste, if you love the layers, then I think you will look fantastic in this dress)

    Dress 2 is the silhouette I like the best, but the way the beading looks from a distance all I see is a smiley face (the eyes are on your boobs, the nose at the belly button)–sorry.

    Dress 3, has ruffles and I love ruffles.

    So I say either 1 or 3 (or if you keep looking then something with the silhouette of 2).

    The second one by a mile! It flatters your figure best, especially from the back.

    @MrsVega2b:   It was difficult to vote because I love the first two, but I do think the first dress is the most flattering to your figure.  You look great in all of them, but with a nice waistline like you have, why not show it off!!  🙂
