    I love love love that tea length dress. You look so amazing in it and it would fit your theme perfectly! If you want full length though, my vote would be #3

    AHH, I love the Jenny Packham! It’s absolutely gorgeous, but I voted for the Blue Summer tea-length dress because of your vintage garden party theme/vision/vibe. I think it fits better, and I love the eyelash-edge lace boatneck! So elegant!

    Omg, YOU ARE SO PRETTY!

    I voted #1 just because it is different and I “wow”ed when I saw the pic, but I really wanted to vote for every single gowns. You can’t go wrong. But it obviously will depend on your venue choice and final feel of your wedding.

    I actually love #2 on you.  It’s so modern vintage (if that even makes sense) and you pull it off so well.

    You could wear any of those dresses and be a knockout. I’m sad to read that you have been struggling so much with your body image when you look beautiful and healthy and let’s face it––hot!–

    You have a great body. I liked all of the dresses, but especially numbers 2 and 3.

    I think 4 works the best for your theme but 3 is simply stunning on you!

    OMG you are so adorable! Your bangs!! <3

    Anywho, I really love #4 on you, it looks like it really suits your style. You look very “at home” in it if that makes sense!!

    3 and 4 are both fantastic, just depends on the feel you want. 4 is fun and whimsical and classic with charm! 3 is sexy and classy and lovely.

    I think I’d have to go with 4 though because it’s just so interesting and fun.

    I LOVE the second and third dress.

    It depends on what direction you’re trying to go. The second one looks SUPER cute and unique, the third one looks sexier and more clasically wedding-ish.

    I guess I’ll vote for the third one, because it looks very bridal and you look HOT in it. I’m not sure where the body issues are coming from. You look BEAUTIFUL.

    You have a great figure, but IMO the first two dresses do NOTHING for it whatsoever. The third is pretty, but yeah, fairly run-of-the-mill as others have pointed out. Could be gorgeous with the right accessories. However it is very, very flattering on you. The fourth is my favorite, hands down. It has that something different I think you’re going for, and is also very flattering and looks great on you. The fact that it will fit the theme is also a major plus.

    You look amazing in all dresses but my absolute favorite on you is the last one. So classy and fun at the same time! It reminds me of Audrey Hepburn.I also think it suits your theme best.
