 I much prefer the first one over the other two.  It looks amazing on you and the other two are pretty, but I think #1 shines.

I also prefer dress 1. The other two look dated and matronly to me.

I think a belt with your current dress would look nice. I also think it flatters you, and more than the other two.

I also don’t find your current dress immodest at all, but you are the one who has to enjoy wearing it!

First one for SURE!  I bet a sparkley belt would look great with it too.

I love the first dress, but I get it when it comes to the venue.  You want your ceremony to reflect the more provencial feel of a ballgown.  So, in my opinion, the third dress is gorgeous — love the work, the fit and the beading is just divine.  With the right accessories you will shine. I would wear it until dinner is over and then change to the Rebeca.  It looks sensuous and you will be able to dance and have the time of your life.   So princess to diva.  That’s a winning combination!

sweetbee1616 :  The first one is much more flattering. Something about the second one seems very 80s to me. If you have your heart set on a ballgown perhaps try some more contemporary styles? 

You don’t need sleeves or a modesty panel, the dress you purchased looks beautiful on you as it is. Have you tried it with a crinoline? Remember–people should see you first and the dress second!

I like the first one best.

I feel like you really want a ballgown though, so out of the two you posted, I like the last one better (but I think you can find something better).

The first one is my favourite. The second and third seem kind of dated and matronly? Maybe cheap? Im not quite sure, I can’t put my finger on it. I really dont like them as much.

The first one is the nicest by a long shot. The other two I really dislike for the reasons everyone else has listed. The first one also looks way more expensive.

Have you tried something with a dropped waist? I feel like all of them are cutting you wrong.
