I really like the second one.Its modern.Not too “over the top” like dress #4.The lace on dresses 1 and 3 are more traditional.

I really like the second one is the prettiest but the last one is a close second!

I would have a hard time choosing between Number 2 and 4. Both are so beautiful!

@Ashleigh24:  I love the second one… but I’m not so sure you have “plenty of time”… five months isn’t much time to order a dress!  Have you tried any on?  I had lots of dresses I liked in photos but they looked completely wrong when I put them on… it was often a major letdown 🙁  I’m not necessarily saying these won’t look great on you, just that I think you need to start looking now!

I too vote the second one. It’s stunning, plus the others look like winter wedding dresses.


also, you might wanna get a start on shopping and ordering. 5 months really isn’t that much time…

I really like the second one, high collar necklines always look very severe to me. I agree with you about the skirt of the third one not having as nice movement as the others.

Hi @Ashleigh24:  First and foremost as this is your DEBUT Post… a BIG Welcome to “the Hive”

You clearly have what I’d call Classic Taste… sort of timeless in styling.

I have to agree with you Grace Kelly was a GORGEOUS Bride, and I am sure you will be too.

Your Wedding in a Cathedral sounds AWESOME… so I can see why you also might be leaning towards these traditional looks.

I am an Older Bee… and altho some of these looks you’ve chosen have their roots in a timeframe older than myself, I can clearly see that there is a common thread here (whether you know it or not)

You are influenced / attracted to a Classic Hollywood look…

Dresses # 1, # 2 and # 3 all channel Grace Kelly’s Wedding (1956) for sure.  But I also see elements from Elizabeth Taylor to Nicky Hilton (1950) and this publicity shot of Doris Day in a Wedding Dress = http://hollywoodbride.tumblr.com/post/21265148430/doris-day-in-a-warner-brothers-studio-publicity

Dress # 4 with the bigger skirt certainly says 1950s & 60s Celebrity for me…

Of all of these…

My fave by far is # 1 and it comes down to 2 elements…

The Lace… which is FABULOUS and the flow of the dress.  It is an A-Line so will suit most body types, and looks indeed REGAL… this dress will have no problem meeting the challenge of having a Cathedral Wedding.  Add on a veil, and you have echoed Grace Kelly perfectly (with a touch of Duchess Kate as well)

Hope this helps,

Thanks for the UPDATE (while I was drafting my reply)

Your Mother’s vision and yours is quite similar… she’s just going for more of the “modern” princess look than the traditional one.

The bones are similar…

Same A-Line cut as Dress # 1… oodles of Lace etc.

But gone are the longer sleeves, replaced with “today’s version” as is the neckline.

It is a great dress too…

The truth is YOU have to find the dress that speaks to you…

And that can only be done by truly going on and trying dresses on… cause just like any other important clothing pruchase (think Bathing Suit or Jeans) what looks good on the hanger isn’t necessarily going to suit you OR be all that you wished for… until you actually see it on.

As your Wedding is such a short time away, I agree with the Other Bees here… you need to get on this asap.

Hope this helps,
