    Wear both! Wear the white one to your ceremony and the floral one that you bought yesterday to your reception!

    Agree with wear both. 🤗 Those are some lovely dresses. Although I love #2 most and think whatever dress you pick is your wedding dress regardless of how it looks. But I’m biased, traditional isn’t my cup of tea. I’d be walking down the aisle in black if Fiance wasn’t against that particular color. 😏

    I’m all for a non traditional dress, but I think number1 is just much nicer than the others in this case.  Number 2 and 3 almost look like something from 5-10 years ago to me, and the bright/fluoro flowers on number 2 just aren’t nice IMO (sorry I don’t mean to be harsh).

    Number one. 

    The one you bought yesterday will be perfect to pop on for your party afterwards.

    if you’re looking for non-traditional, what about a wedding jumpsuit…that would be the ultimate in cool.

    Definitely wear dress #1 and then change into dress #2 for the party after!

    Number one and three are beautiful, number one is the most bridal obviously but it’s still a summery simple look so suits your personality. Wear it and have simple fun accessories that suit you then you will feel like you are getting married but still being you. Either number 2 or 3 (I love 3 although 2 is gorgeously colourful) are perfect for your fun back yard reception! HELL WEAR ALL THREE!!! Wear number 2 for a couple of hours whilst you are celebrating , eating having more a formal time and then slip into number 2 more some real party action

    sarahparkview :  White 😔 Had a lot of hiccups finding a dress. Realized I didn’t even wear white/ivory much in regular life, would prefer color and traditional dresses simply don’t work for me. Ended up loving a dress that only comes in three colors. Black was my preference until Fiance said “Anything but black dear, its a wedding not a funeral.” lol He’s no fun. Tan version was lovely on the rack but looked kind of icky on me (to my eye anyway) so white is whats left. A few bees helped me pick out some really pretty, colorful block heel sandals and suggested a flower crown for more color so I’m satisfied. Not over the moon thrilled but it’ll do. 😉

    sarahparkview :  I LOVE #2, but I think I am in the minority. I am all for wearing what makes you feel best on your day. And I dont know about you, but everyone saying wear both one for ceremony and one for reception, by the time I got home I would be throwing on some shorts or capris and tank top and ditching any dress all together.
