My wedding isn’t until next May but I have started looking and have found a few that i like. Unfortunately, I live far away from my sister and my mom so I have been doing a lot of wedding dress searching solo. I just want to get some opinions and see which one so far is best looking and also on my figure. The wedding will be outdoor, early evening at a very pretty but laid-back winery. I love the vintage look so that’s what I am going for vintage, classy and sexy. Obviously since i am new to this, i wasn’t wearing the right undergarments, etc…there is a front, and a back view of each dress. it is so hard to tell from the photos (angles, lighting, etc) but any opinions will be very much appreciated. thank you so much! Also I have never posted to this board so I added the poll feature, but I am not sure how that will work. You can write below in comments if you like more than one, and if there is a particular aspect of a dress you like/don’t like.
dress #1 Sue Wong, one of a kind so can’t be purchased anywhere else if I don’t go back to the same store and buy this one.
Dress #2 Pronovias Diemos, with the longer sleeves made into cap sleeves (here in the pic they’re just tucked under so it looks a bit weird). Lovely woman from shop said she would sell this one off the rack to me for 1/2 price, since it was my size. Obviously, i will need spanx and a slip and not black underwear.
Dress #3 Also Pronovias. This is called Laila, it is the 2014 verson of a dress called Urbina that I am obsessed with but can not find to try on! The dress was about 2 sizes small so the lace back wouldn’t button up, but this was some gorgeous lace.
Dress #4 WTOO Emerson. This dress was so lovely, it is hard to tell from the pics, but the lace and bead detail is amazing.
Let me know which you like best, and THANK YOU!

I think 2 is the best of these, but you could probably find some thatre more flattering than the ones you posted.

I’m going to say my first choice is number 2… especially because they offered it to you at 1/2 price!! What a deal!
If not, I think that with the right undergarments, number 1 is a solid option. The back is so, so flattering!

@Kissed_by_lightning: Hi, there. Thanks for the opinion! I have found varying prices for Pronovias. The Diemos is $2400, but the woman who owns the shop will sell it to me for $1100 becasue she is going to have a sample sale in august. The Laila is $1700 brand new, and the one I am obsessed with but can’t find anywhere to try on, is the Urbina at $2200. I would go into shops that carry a lot of pronovias, try them on, and ask them to sell you the sample at a discount (if it happens to fit you). Or, go on Preownedweddingdresses.com or Oncewed.com and get a used one.
