    @NovaGrey:  Gorgeous dresses! They all are very flattering on you!! Lucky! Personally, my favorite is number 8, even though you aren’t overly excited about it. I did notice in alot of the cons you wrote “too short” or “too long” – remember, things like that can be fixed when ordering *your* dress – unless you’re buying a sample or off the rack.


    Happy dress hunting!!

    I love the last two, but that may just be because they really remind me of my dress. I thought 6 was lovely but I would not be ok with a dress that was uncomfortable. I think the style of 4 is beautiful, but I’m not a huge fan of the color. If you love 1 I would go with it. I don’t know why you don’t think it looks good in the photos; I think it’s beautiful on you!

    I really like 8 and it’s odd because i don’t like bubble hems… like at all! Looks so good on you and is very flattering. The selling point for me is the awesome (almost) butt bow!

    I voted for #5 and #7.  They are similar in cut, and I think that cut is very flattering on you.  You might want to only post the photos that you are deciding between because it seems like you definitely prefer some over others.  That will help you futher narrow down your choices.

    Number 5 is stunning, and number 8 is drop dead gorgeous!

    I may be biased, but I really love #7. I think the cut is flattering on you. You mentioned that the front is a little plain but you love the back…. what about something similar, like this? (this was my dress, but it reminds me a lot of that one):


    It comes in white, also (which is what I wore).

    I liked 1, 5, 7, 9

    • 1: looks amazing on you (MS Doreen is such a gorgeous dress), and I adore how sparkly the dress is; I do think you should try adding a crinoline/petticoat to give it a more fit-and-flare shape (because your figure is stunning, and you should show it off if you can); plus, I think you should consider that you’ll have professional photography at your wedding, so the photographs will turn out much differently
    • 5: very pretty on you; it is more of a cupcake dress, but natural waist gowns look very nice on your figure; although this dress is pretty “meh” from the back
    • 7: also very very pretty on you, and the detail at the bottom of the skirt is just lovely; I also adore the gorgeous train and further detailing
    • 9: this fit is very flattering on you, even from that awful, unflattering angle (were they on their knees?); but I would definitely not get it if it’s falling apart

    I did not care for 2, 3, 4, 6, 8 (all for various reasons)

    • 2’s unflattering dropped waist makes your legs look a foot long (and after seeing how tall you are, this just means this is a stupidly-constructed dress); plus the ruching in the back is lumpy (again, poor garment construction)
    • 3 would be perfect if you’re getting married on the beach…in 1993
    • 4 is just a hot mess of a dress: not enough flattering things going on with the bodice and way too much going on with the droopy skirt (as my sister says, “it looks like a sad, melty dress”)
    • 6 does have that cool open back that shows off your beautiful [unfinished] tattoo; but I HATE itchy/uncomfortable fabric so NOPE
    • 8 looks great on you, but it looks like one big comforter (I think it’s the bubble hem), so…no

    I really liked dress #5 – the bodice had vintage-style beading with a fun and whimsical bottom. I think a vintage head-piece will complete the vintage feel you’re going for.

    i voted for 7, but i really like the empire waist a-lines on you (5 as well)

    they’re both syuper flattering, i just happen to not be that into ruffles.

    i think you did a great job on your trip! good luck
