    Dress 1 isn’t showing anymore 🙁 , but I do love dress 2 and personally I would probably wear it at the ceremony – but I’m very untraditional.

    If they’re $165 then buy them all 😂. #3 for bachelorette, #1 for ceremony, #3 for reception!

    Your wedding sounds like so much fun, I love it! I voted dress 1, not because it’s the most traditional-bridal, but because it just looks like a more flattering cut and a little more high-quality than the others. Style-wise I think all three choices are super!

    I agree with PP’s! Where the white for your ceremony and then floral for the reception! I love both and it will give you so much variety in photos 🙂

    The white dress you ordered definitely doesn’t scream bridal. I think you could wear that white dress anywhere, except, of course, to someone else’s wedding.

    I am pretty traditional, so I think it’s amazing that I’m going to say this, but I think you should make this decision based on how you want to feel that day and what you want to see in your wedding pictures for the rest of your life.

    I would have had to choose a white or ivory dress to have felt like a bride. But, if you don’t need to do that, I LOVE dress #2, the first floral dress. It’s amazing!

    Well I like no 1 best even though it is white , The other two don’t   look special enough for a wedding( and you are having a traditional wedding , NOT an  elopement  if you are having a reception and guests and  bachelorette and all that)

    I totally agree, wear both! For whatever it’s worth, I almost went for a VERY non-traditional dress. In the end I opted for a pretty unique wedding dress (it’s actually pretty similar to yours!). And you know what? Looking back, I’m glad I did it. You can wear pretty non-traditional dresses whenever you want, but this is really the only time you can wear a wedding dress.

    Go for hair, makeup, and accessories that are very “you,” and you won’t worry about looking like you’re wearing a costume.

    I could NEVER choose my favorite from the three. I agree – wear them all!
