Hi Bees! I’m fairly new but I’ve been lurking for a while. I need help choosing a style of wedding dress. I’ve gone dress shopping four times and I am still not certain what style to go with, but I’m leaning towards mermaid 😉 Basically I’m looking for your ladies’ opinions about what looks best on me! I haven’t included an A-line but I think they don’t look so great on me. I’m 5’4 if this helps.
In addition: I love lace and I plan on getting my dress in ivory. I am not really into shiny dresses (satin, sequins) or blingy belts. I’m probably not choosing any of these dresses, just trying to figure out my options 🙂
Here we go! Haaaaaaalp….they are sideways 🙁
Fit and flare: sorry for my absurd face lol

Why would you go past that fit and flare? Beautiful!

It’s definitely between the ballgown and the fit and flare. I love that ethereal look you’ve got going in the ballgown.

I don’t see a lot of difference between the fit and flare and the mermaid except that the f and f seem to fit better.
I like you best in the ballgown, maybe not that actual one, but the shape looks great.

Ballgown or the fit and flare! Hmm…it’s hard to pick out of those two because they’re both pretty for different reasons! I think I’ll have to pick fit and flare by a little!

I love the fit and flare on you! It makes you look very elegant and shows off your figure while still having that little bit of volume at the bottom 🙂 I feel your pain though, I tried on every style out there and was so confused! xx

I’m with PPs. Ballgown or fit & flare. I’m leaning more toward the fit & flare because those straps and neckline look fantastic on you!

Either the fit and flare or mermaid… both look awesome on you!

I see the fit and flare is the clear leader ^^ I honestly really love the dress too. Its an Essence of Australia D1617. I’ve seen a few threads on here about it and it looks great on a lot of ladies! But it’s so hard to tell what it would actually look like on me because it’s enormously too big. (As are the pictures…I can’t seem to figure out how to upload things properly on my phone)
In this one you can see how much it is clipped
And in this one I’m standing on an 8 inch stool (mostly being not very serious with my Maid/Matron of Honor but it does showcase how long this is):
All your votes have me wondering if I should give this dress more thought…!
