Ok, I’ve tried on several dresses, 2 of which I LOVE, and the other 2 are ones that friends/family love. What do you ladies think?
lol please ignore my face in this one. This is probably my second favorite. I love how small it makes me look, especially since I’m pant size 16 so was trying on dresses that were 18 and up. However, the top is HEAVILY beaded and was a little uncomfortable when I had my arms down at my sides. the consultant did say that they could probably remove some of the beading to make it more comfortable without it being obvious. Also, please note I’ve shown pics of all of these dresses (without me in them) to my fiance and this is probably his least favorite but he still “likes” it. But the photo I showed him of it was just a generic photo on the website. This is also within my budget.
This is probably my favorite. It’s comfortable and I love the material. It is however, at the top of my budget. It’s a little over $1000 and that’s before alterations. I really didn’t want to spend over $1000, at least not BEFORE alterations lol. But it really is my favorite.
This is my one that family and friends reallyyyyyy like. I’m just not sure about it? I do think it’s flattering, but I’m not crazy about the bust. I prefer a sweetheart neckline. This was in my budget.
This is another friend pick. I liked the dress, even though I tried it on in champagne and I will be wearing white. This was by far the most comfortable. But the bottom is a little plain for me. I do like the rouching (however you spell it) but I also would like some pick ups or just.. something! This was also in my budget.

Your favorite dress is the most flattering – splurge a little and go for it!

I like #2, your favorite, the best! It’s flattering, and I like the style.

I personally like the 2nd or last one best, but they all look great on you! If not going out of budget is really important, then I do like the 1st one a lot as well. I would lean more toward what you feel best in and not what fam/friends say. That often leads to dress regret!

I like number 2 best also, but number 4 is a close second!!

I like #2 the best (your favorite). The sweetheart neckline looks amazing.
You should add a poll!!

I am going to agree with your family on this one – the ruffle dress is very flattering!

Number 2 OR number 3 altered with a sweetheart neckline. I love ruffles but I am also not a fan of the bustline.

I think the one your friends and family picked is most flattering.

I like #2, maybe you can do some searching to see if you can find a sample or used or something…? I knwo if you put it in your cart online, and leave it there, davids bridal will email you a coupone code for 10% sometimes (i think the code is shopping)… kind of looks like that is where you are (spent lots of time there-ugh) but if not, maybe you can sign up for your salon’s newsletters or specials and get notified when sales come up 🙂

Dress 2 all the way!! Next is (based solely on personal taste): 4, then 3, and 1 is last place for me.
Good luck picking your gown!! You will be BEAUTIFUL no matter which one you choose 🙂
