@alip0p: Have you tried any on yet? Sometimes what you think you want isn’t always what you really want, you know? plus, you’ll want to be comfortable as well, so maybe what you’re envisioning as fun and quirky could be also not fun for you. Also, your dress doesn’t have to match your theme, but generally if your theme speaks to who you are as a couple, then your dress will most likely match as well. Have you asked your mom what she wants to see you in? Sometimes that helps to give you somewhere to start when trying them on, and then you can decide if you like the style or not and go from there. A good consultant at a well-stocked salon should be able to go off of your likes and dislikes and find you the perfect dress. You still have a LOT of time before you need to place the order, so you can go have fun with trying them and get a feel for what works best on your body and in your heart. 

I know that’s probably not the answer you’re looking for, but really it’s what helped me- and my dress doesn’t match my venue or anything at all, but I feel like it’s totally me and I feel like a million bucks in it, and I know it’s going to put a smile on FI’s face, and that’s what sold me on it ๐Ÿ™‚

@alip0p: Hi there.. I just joined myself..I’ve worked in Key West tons and love the feel of the place and all the yummy food…I’m in a similar situation and need help with dresses, I really like this one from alfred angelo and think it would be great for a beach wedding: http://www.alfredangelo.com/collections/styles/1774NT

the high/lo hemline is non traditional and kinda quirky ๐Ÿ™‚

I had decided on a theme and look then went dress shopping. What looks good on me made me totally change my theme. I now say dress shop first! Try on something of every type of style and see what moves you. I love a dress I absolutely hated on the hanger. Like fingers down the throat hated LOL.
