    Out of those options I voted number one. Although they all look beautiful. Normally I would have voted for the mermaid except that this very weekend I tried on one similar to that one (full ruffled skirt) which made me teeter between two mermaids (the other was a lace). I decided (with help from FI) that the mermaids with an exceptionally full skirt r not exactly as beautiful as one with a more balanced flow. That’s my opinion but something to consider about those particular types of mermaids. But seriously, u make all of those dresses look amazing.

    1! Your venue looks dreamy and I think 1 will be awesome! But you could add a little more poof with a crinoline!! Looks absolutely gorgeous!

    I’m torn between #1 and #2, although what’s making it difficult is that your fabulously slim figure would look amazing in pretty much anything! I think the only thing I don’t like about the second dress is the straps, I’d probably prefer a more simple strapless silhouette up top.

    You look great in all of them.  I think I like 2 a tiny more than the rest.

    I voted custom. I really like dress 3 on you but think it is a little busy for the look you’re going for (judging by your venue). I love the shape of dress 2 but think the bust/straps aren’t the most flattering on you – the other two dresses look better in that area. And I think the problem is that you’re like me and have slim shoulders and really need either no material or a little bit more material to make them look proportional.

    But really, and I know how useless this advice is, you’re very beautiful and have a great figure so you’re going to rock whatever dress you put on.

    The last one, definitely. Firstly, having a dress custom-made is an opportunity not many brides have, so if it’s an option for you, I think you should grab it.

    Secondly I think the design you’ve chosen is just about perfect for your figure. The bateau neckline would really suit your delicate neck/collarbones/chest area. The trumpet silhouette would also suit you (but so would the mermaid of dress #2).

    I don’t think a strapless style would suit your narrow shoulders and slim figure – the dress #1 is pretty unflattering to you on top for that reason – it actually makes you look hunched over and your boobs are all squashed up in it. You could still have a sweetheart neckline with an illusion bateau or jewel neckline over the top of it, though.

    The only problem I have with the custom dress is that your ceremony venue is modern and I don’t think suits a full lace dress. You can still have the illusion layer, but maybe go with a smaller amount of lace, less busy lace, applique over sheer, or not the sleeves. Here are some examples (ignore the rest of the dresses, this is just for the illusion bit).

    I love love love #3 and #4! Even though you can’t try on #4, I think it would be absolutely perfect for you- that style is made for your body type!

    Custom dress all the way! The style is gorgeous and I think if you have the option to have a one of a kind dress for your wedding day? No brainer, to me.
