    Personally I love the third one with the straps on you.  The girls look gorgeous.  But if you love the first one that is the one for you too get.  Your friends don’t have wear the dress you do.  So get the one that makes you happy:)

    I like the first one and the last one.  I think the bottom of the cupcake looks good on you but the halter top on the last dress is much more flattering.  I vote:  Find a cupcake dress bottom with a halter top.  If you can’t, maybe try to find a seamstress who can make you a dress  with #1 bottom and #3 top.

    What about if you you made the cupcake dress into a sweetheart neckline and possibly add some cap sleeves? That way your chest doesn’t look as boxy, and your neck looks longer?

    I voted for the cupcake dress, too, but I agree with Miss Hunky that a sweetheart necklone would do a lot for it!

    I have to agree with your friends – the higher waist is a lot more flattering to your figure than the dropped waist of the “cupcake” dress (which is still really pretty, I just don’t think it makes the most of your figure!) – I also think ivory is more flattering to your skin tones (which are a lot like mine, yay for pink skin!) than the stark white of the “cupcake” dress.

    Sorry if putting cupcake in quotes is obnoxious, whether or not your friends like it, I don’t think it’s very polite of them to call it that!

    What do you love about that dress? Maybe we can help you find one with those same elements but more flattering to your figure. 🙂 Weddingbee is AWESOME at dress hunts!

    I think the second and third dress are more flattering on you.  However, that said, you are BEAMING while wearing the first one.  You need to choose what makes your heart happy.

    Though my vote was for one of the non “cupcake” dresses, I do ultimately agree that you should wear what YOU feel the most comfortable in.  It’ll be your day, and if you feel beautiful and radiant, it won’t matter what the dress looks like because that’ll be shining through.  🙂

    That being said, I think the longer and flowy-er skirts have a way of lenghtening your body, which looks really nice and flattering.  The skirt on the first dress sort of looks squished together, which doesn’t give the same illusion of length that the others do.  And something about the tops on the second two…they just look so nice on you!  Maybe it’s the simplicity of the dress…I think by being not SO detailed, it just really lets your natural beauty come out, and looks really nice that way.  Sorry, that lost some articulateness there, but yeah.

    Though my vote is for the 2nd or 3rd, as I said it’s your day, and you should ultimately wear whatever you love the most.  🙂

    Do you want the cupcake style/look?  It’s a great dress but if you don’t want the fluffy cupcake look than it may not be the right one. Personally I love how elegant and gorgeous the thrid one looks on you.  If you love the cupcake one though that is all that matters!

    I like the second one best on you, then the third.
