    I think dress #1 looks the most like what you would walk down the aisle in. I would definitely change the sash to add more color and perhaps bling. Perhaps you can have the bow tie in the back instead? Like a large, dramatic, long bow effect. 

    I definitely think you invest in a mermaid slip, but I also think you should have the dress altered to fit a little snugger if you want that fit and flare look. 

    I think that you could wear dress #2 or dress #3 as a reception dress. They look a little big on you so perhaps have them taken in a little too? You could also dye them a different color, or accessorize with sparkly belts. You could even alter the length of one of them, and wear all three. dress #1 down the aisle, dress #2 or #3 at the reception, and change into a shorter dress #2 or #3 when you’re being sent off into the car by family and friends.

    I picked dress 1, but definitely think it needs a slip.  I love the idea of the orange criniline that was sugested, not sure a orange sash would work but it may be amazing.

    Dress 1 definitely!   I love @mrsRinger’s suggestionof an orange petticoat!   Maybe that plus a blingy shoe instead of an orange shoe?? I think both together might be too much…maybe not though. Do you have a pic of an orang sash?

    Definitely number 1!  That dress is fabulous!  And only for $45!!! Wow!!!!  Awesome!!!!  I think an orange sash and orange shoes will be overkill.  I’d go with slip #1.

    I said dress 1 with orange sash, but I would go for a more peachy pale orange.  The detailing on it is beautiful.  I would try it with a mermaid petticoat to get maximum flare at the bottom.

    Rather than changing the sash why not just change the brooch to something orange? So you still match but subtly?

    I think the first looks great. I think it needs a little tailoring in the waist…which might be why people are telling you to get a new sash. I don’t think a new sash is totally necessary. 🙂

    I picked dress 1 with the white sash.  I think your flowers, shoes, etc. in orange will be enough, especially if your Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses are orange. 

    I wouldn’t choose satin for a beach wedding…satin doesn’t breath and I would be afraid of sweating.  The one shoulder dress is nice, but it doesn’t seem very bridal to me…it does look more like a Bridesmaid or Best Man dress.

    All the dresses are indeed lovely! But IMO, dress 1 is the best!  Good luck and congrats! I secretly wish I could have 5 dresses, LOL

    I voted for #1. I think that looks the best and is the most bridal of the 3.

    OMG…dress #1 ALL THE WAY!!!  I love it just the way that it is!  Maybe do an orange shoe.
