I’ve been to loaaaads of shops in the past few weeks and probably tried on too many dresses. I really want to order something within the next few weeks so there is enough time to get it in and altered before the wedding. I think I have a favourite in mind, but other friends have given views about other dresses so I’m not quite 100% sure yet.
I have 3 different style dresses below, which one do you think suits me best and looks the best in your opinion? There is a nice lace one with embellishment, a satin (which people say really suits me) and ‘other’ – lace mixed, again another favourite with friends.
Any feedback or comments welcome! Sorry for cutting my head off the pictures, i’m just a bit self-conscious.
Order of pics is Lace, then Other, then Silk

I like the 2 dresses that have lace on them best. I voted for the ‘other’ option over the all lace one, because I like the neckline, the back of the dress, and the flowy-ness of the skirt. You should pick the dress you feel best in, although I know when you have lots of people giving you opinion that can be hard to do. 🙂

The “other” dress is my favorite.

I personally like the third dress on you the best. I’m guessing this is the one you’re calling the silk dress in the post.
I just wanted to mention that you may receive some slightly confusing responses, since the pics of the dresses are not in the order of the poll options. Also, you mention satin in the poll, but you call the dress silk in the other parts of the post. Both certainly could be correct, since silk is a fabric, and satin is a finish, so it could be that you mean it’s a satin-faced, silk gown. However, this may be confusing to some.

@Brielle: oops sorry, i posted quite late at night and maybe got bit confused after a day of dress shopping! I’m also new to all this, i haven’t ever thought about dresses or what I might wear on my wedding day until I had to start looking. I don’t know what the satin fabric is, maybe it’s satin, or maybe it just looks ‘silky’.
The order of the pictures is lace, then ‘other’ then the satin/silky one, then I have a picture of the back of the lace dress, added later as I thought seeing the back might be helpful.
Got more dress shopping today and tomorrow, then I really want to stop and make a decision. Everyone’s feedback and voting is very helpful, thank you!! I’m feeling the lace, but also want to look elegant and classy, and maybe the silky dresses do that more. I forgot to add, the shop can add some sparkle to the ‘other’ dress, dress 3 which i would quite like

I like both the lace dresses. Actually the 2nd one really fits your body but perhaps it would be better if the neckline isn’t so high (maybe a V-neck or something?). The first dress is also really pretty though but maybe a bit more common compared to the 2nd dress.

@StrwbryBlnde: I agree, the ‘other’ dress is very different and elegant, not seen any dresses like this until I saw that one yesterday. I wouldn’t have guessed that I would consider something like that but it’s taken me by surprise due to it’s elegance. It’s in the sale as it’s from a 2010 collection so I would have to buy that dress sample as seen.

The first dress you posted is fantastic and looks super!
The second dress is amazing. I’ve never a dress like it, and not everyone could pull it off. I’d really love to see you wear the 2nd dress, only because I strive to be different. Its a great dress, but you truly look great in all of them!
