I think you look gorgeous in dress B! Also I don’t get why some bees have said the dresses look cheap?! I don’t think any of them do! 

Youve got a great figure and look good in all of them, my personal fave is B and followed by A. There’s nothing wrong with C but I don’t think it has the wow factor of the other two dresses 🙂

milabeehappy :  B would be amazing it it had a sweetheart neckline.  I think it doesn’t flatter “the girls” as is and I think the sash is a little too cutesy but it has a ton of potential.  C is also beautiful.

I think you could do better than all of these. A is the best of the 3 in my opinion, B is awful (sorry).

You have plenty of time, so I say keep looking!

Out of the 3 you posted, I like B the best.  The mermaid style suits your figure very nicely and can see why you’re drawn to that style.

Please try not to stress about the budget.  I know it’s so easy to get caught up into wanting the perfect dress but you have lots of time to try dresses on and you hear so much dress regret from buying too early.  When I was engaged, I went over my budget by 50%.  I justified it by saying it was the one time I could wear a dress like that.  Well, my engagement ended and I wound up selling my dress at a consignement shop for less than half of what I paid.

My favorite is dress B for its simplicity. I do agree that the neckline would look more flattering if altered into a heart.  My second favorite is A.

A or C.  A is my first choice.  B does not flatter the figure as nicely as A does.  A also looks nicer…like it probably cost twice as much as B.

Torn between A and B.  You look great in the mermaid dresses!  Definitely though, before you buy see if you can try some of the dresses by designers

clairebeebear posted if it is within your budget.  I particularly love the first two she posted.  If you try those on in a store and fall in love, see if the store can give you a discount on the dress or accessories as best bridal prices does.

I LOVE B on you! And I don’t think you should change it to a sweetheart neckline because that neckline folded detail gives it polish. I would sew in gel cups to help the girls but keep that neckline!

i agree with PP, you can find something more beautiful and flattering elsewhere.

have you considered a pre-owned/sample dress? you can get a designer dress for under 1k used or as a sample. Look at allure, mori lee, or maggie… all can be found pre owned for under 1k.

I’m not wowed by any of them, but I like Dress C best. If you have a limited budget, do what I did. Try on all different types of dresses without even looking at the price tags. When you find something you really like, look for it on Tradesy or similar websites (not all dresses are preowned; mine was a sample dress that had just been sitting in a bridal shop since 2011). If you can’t find the exact dress, look for something similar. Good luck!

I don’t particularly like any one of the dresses. But if I had to choose…the last one. None of them really wow me.
