Can’t you try them all on?  It really helped me to see different styles on myself.  Dresses look completely different on your body versus a size 0 model.

Have you looked at the Allure Women’s collection? I see that most of what you’re picking are pretty busy with plenty of ruffles…..maybe too much dress? I always think less is more,especially when it comes to wedding gowns. Have a look at the Allure line…many of those would be really flattering.

those all look more dropped waist/fit and flare to me rather than a-line. and i agree that you really need to try them on to see what will look best! i am a street size 16 and was thinking i’d get something with an empire waist that wasn’t fitted at all around my hips bc i thought that wouldn’t look good. i ended up with a corsetted dress that is fitted all the way down to my hips and it looks AWESOME. gives me such a great shape. love corsets hardcore 🙂

What I found, as a “full figured” girl is that dresses that were more cohesive rather than top/skirt looked better on me. More like #3 above rather than #4. For me it was because having a seam/drastic change in style right around the midsection was really not flattering and i really DIDN’T need any extra fabric there haha. However, my stomach is my problem area so if you have a comparatively thin waist, that might be something you’d want to draw attention to!
