@wlphilli:  I am super traditional and I usually don’t like the over-elaborate foo-foo dresses in vogue right now BUT my first thought upon looking at your dress was that it looks gorgeous on you.  Definitely bridal.  Wear it with confidence and ignores the old ladies.

The funky blush looks amazing on you. I love the blush and asymmetry but I’m not a fan of the bottom of the dress. It looks like wadded up tissues to me. Sorry.

The #3 dress you posted is seriously perfection. Especially once you said you’re having an outdoor, woodland-themed wedding.

You look really happy in the dress, so I say go for it. Did you try on Watters Jacinda? (#3 of the other ones.) I think that is the most beautiful on you, but I’m not a big glamour-girl type. Will the blush dress look dated? Probably, but so will most dresses — it’s just what happens. What’s important is that you feel happy and pretty and special in the dress. Wear what makes YOU happy.

I love the color. But, I really dislike the bottom. It looks stiff and heavy, and I dislike how the texture affects the draping. It would not matter if that dress was in ivory, I sitll would not like the bottom.

@wlphilli:  It’s your dress if you feel beautiful in it then it’s the one but be certain you don’t want dress regret.

All of your dress choices are beautiful, but I really do like your original!  I also went blush (ivory looked bad on me lol) and I love it!  Blush can actually look pretty light in different lighting but then really soft and romantic in low light (which I love :))  Definitely go with your gut and what YOU want to wear!

Please get the blush dress. Look at the smile on your face in that picture! The dress makes you glow! Go with your heart, because it isn’t lying to you. You look beautiful 🙂

@TLDR:  My thoughts exactly.

OP, that shade of blush looks stunning on you, and the dress is very flattering, but I’m not a fan of the bottom. It’s also not the kind of dress I would imagine a bride wearing in a wedding on a farm. It’s very modern and fashion-forward, I think (but it is definitely not too “out there”). 

I really like #3 too. I think it goes better with your theme and venue.

Gosh, it’s so pretty that it has tempted me to stop lurking and make my first post. The white ones are nice but you have the best smile in the blush. It’s also given me serious dress envy for the first time since I said yes to my dress back in September!

I love it! It’s the most flattering and most stunning of the dresses you showed. It’s interesting but not ‘out there’ enough that people will be shocked or anything.

I absolutely love your favorite and think you look beautiful in it!  I know it’s hard to go against the grain of what your loved ones think, but it’s your day, your gown and your memories.  Go for what makes you feel gorgeous and special!
