    Okay here is what I think =P 

    Dress 1) Unique, but I don’t really like the silver lines running down the top. I don’t know, just something about it is off.


    Dress 2) Love, Love, Love! The sleeves are so pretty and the dress is so whimsical and pretty.


    Dress 3) I don’t really understand why this is the favorite of the poll. I mean there is nothing wrong with it just seems like any other wedding dress. Like you can see that style of dress all over, by many diffrent designers on many diffrent brides. I guess what I am saying is while its pretty, its not very unique compared to others. Which may not be a problem to you ofcourse! I just like unique dresses.


    Dress 4) This is the one I voted for simply because you look adorable in it. It just seems to suit you =) I love tea length dresses and I think it will fit perfectly into your theme and venue.

    I think you shouldn’t be insecure about your body at all! I love both 3 and 4, I think you look the happiest in number 4, maybe that means something? Number 2 I think is not as flattering on you like the others. About number 1, I agree is not very bridal -y

    I’m so torn between the last two dresses!

    These gowns are all so refreshing! You have a tough choice to make. I love #1 because it so different from all the other bridal gowns out there, you look great it in, and it’s stunning, BUT if you want a more “bridal” option the other three are lovely! Out of the other three, I slightly prefer the lace fit and flare (#3) and then the tea length (#4); I think the structure of these gowns really works for you! You look great in them and they’re all beautiful.

    The last dress.

    I  am a little concerned with your poor body image. You have a great figure- I don’t get what there is to be insecure about.

    I actually gasped when I saw #4.  It’s darling!

    Edit – I looked at it again, and I would probably shorten it to just below knee length as it looks like it’s too long on you.  That could be the angle of the photo though.

    @NearlyWife:  Me too… why do we do that to ourselves?  The Jenny Packham is very unique and runs a close second, but my vote goes the tea-length.

    ETA:  I’m sorry if I sounded like a scolding parent… I was really surprised to read it.

    For your theme, either the second or the third would work. I’m not a fan of the shape of the last one- it makes you look like a little kid playing dress up.  The first one doesn’t look like a wedding dress, IMO- it might be workable for like a New Year’s Eve wedding, but not a garden party.  The second one is my hands-down favorite- it is so different and special, and you could always add a slightly wider belt situation (honestly, I’d consider that.  That one is SO thin it almost detracts from your waist because it makes the fabric billow funny. I’d consider something about an inch to two inches wide if you can).

    The lace dress is beautiful, and very, very traditional.  If that’s what you’re going for, that would be the right choice. If you’re going for different and off-beat, number 2 hands down.

    The neckline on that last dress is awesome. Kind of Audrey Hepburn-ish. I don’t think you can go wrong with any of the dresses you posted, as they all looked amazing on you, but the last one is definitely my favorite out of the four.

    Number 4 hands down!!! I love all these dresses, and you are gorgeous and look great in them all. But you look so comfortable in No 4. IMO 1 and 2 are beautiful but (even though you are really slim) are the kind of dresses that one needs to hold their tummy in all day. 3 is lovely but a bit like lots of other dresses. 4 is divine!! I want it!
