So I went back to the store and retried the dresses and had a couple pinned for how it would look if I had them altered.
Well, it turns out that some will alter better than others. Sadly the favorite Laura will not look well with the general hemline alteration.
Thus, I wanted to start another poll based on what the dress will look like after alterations.
Here is the Laura if we were to alter it to my length. The triangle inset panel gets cut off unless I spend hundreds more to get it moved up. I think this is helpful if any of you girls need to consider alterations.
The LESSEPS will need the bottom chopped off and reattached.
The LEYRE – some layers will get chopped off.
Daylice – length is already adjusted – no need for alteration.
Please include comments to explain why you picked the dress. I am down to the wire and desperate for help to make the right decision. 🙁 Thanks everyone!

The Lesseps is definitely my favorite! Very classic and unique – and I love the lace detail at the top!

Lesseps is what I voted for yesterday and will again today! I think it looks so elegant and gorgeous on you! Timeless.

Daylice is my fav. I heart taffeta! And no major alterations is a total score. Which one do you like best??

LESSEPS LOVE this dress on you.

Are you able to order your dress against your hollow to hem measurements? That way nothing will get cut off and all flair outs and/or details will start at the right place on your dress (against your body.) I really really like that last 3 dresses you have posted: Lesseps, Leyre, Daylice. My favorite on you is Lesseps
I ordered my dress against my hollow to hem – in addition the flair out is being raised 1.5 inches because I am short, lol.

All of the dresses look amazing on you, but I gasped (in a good way) when I saw the Daylice. 🙂

You really look just wonderful in all of them. But i have to agree with the others that the Lesseps just looks fantastic on you, a style that won’t go out of date, and honestly a dress that not many people can pull off and have it look good. i know your friends were commenting on the mummified look, do you agree wtih them or do you like it?

Daylice again but without the bows. Given the alterations issues with the others, it just makes me like it more!

It’s crazy last time I voted for the Laura on you but now I love the Lesseps. It’s stunning.

It’s sad that I love each dress for different reasons. The Daylice is so unique and I love the sparkle tulle. It’s totally something I’d wear to a party or when I’m being trendy. 🙂
Lesseps just seems like the shape of my favorite black and white gown that I usually wear to other ppl’s wedding. I get tons of compliments on that. I love the lace detail but not sure about so many horizontal lines. Maybe I should just think about the overall look and not worry about the lines?
I love the soft layers on the Leyre and the ethereal look of the train.
Well the train on the Lesseps is good too:

Well the Leyre has always been my favorite, but considering the alteration to the bottom, I would go with the Lesseps – I think it will look most like how it’s supposed to look once the alterations are finished.
I’ve mentioned before that I don’t like the Daylice, and the need for no alterations doesn’t really sway me.

I voted for Daylice. I like how different it looks and it looks awesome on you!! :]

The shape of Lesseps—but the tiers remind me of a pillbug, or rolly polly…. 🙁 So I choose the Daylice (without the bow, and with a sweetheart neckline!)
