    Lol I thought all those backgrounds looked familiar and then I noticed you were in Omaha. Nice to see someone else here. 🙂

    I really feel like the second dress is the best but I’m completely biased towards fitted lace dresses. The watters dress is beautiful but I don’t think it looks as good on you as the first two. Of course, if it’s the dress that speaks to you then that’s all you should listen to. I had a couple of false positives in my dress search but I could never put down the cash until I put on my dress and then I felt done looking completely.

     I completely feel you on the price thing, unless it was completely beyond budget I didn’t want to pass up my dress but at the same time the difference between my final top two was about 2k. I ended up going with the more expensive one because it was my dream dress but got it secondhand (but new with tags) for almost 1k less than buying it new which made it a little easier to deal with the price gap.

    I really like #3 on you, and I’m not surprised you love it because the quality is obvious.

    But my problem with it is that it looks good on you now, unaltered. And since you said you are 5 foot 1, I’m assuming that you’re standing on a block in that photo and quite a lot of the bottom of that skirt is going to be coming off.

    If I try and imagine what it would look like the actual length it would be when you wear it (by my highly scientific method of putting my hand over the bottom of the dress on the screen) it doesn’t look as good. 

    Ballgowns don’t generally suit petite women because they break up the line of the dress and make them look shorter. That is not something you want if you’re also convinced that you’re fat – god knows why – you’re freaking gorgeous!- since one of the ways you can make yourself look slimmer is by lengthening the line of your dress. I’d therefore be nervous about spending that much on a dress that might not be as flattering as you think it is.  

    The first two are more A-line, which is probably a better choice for you given your height and ridiculous insecurities. I like the first one too but the boobs are so much out on display in it that I think your groom is going to be busy fighting off all the other guys at hte reception!

    So ultimately, I’m leaning towards 2.

    @angelinthesnowxo:  I like the second one best.  It hugs in all the right places.  The first one I don’t know, but I can’t really see how it fits on the whole front of you.  Number three is a nice dress, but I agree it makes you look boxy.  Number two looks really good on your large bust.  

    Thanks for posting.  You have a shape similiar to mine, gives me a little bit more confidence that I can pull of a strapless with my 38D bust.

    My favorite is 2 (with a different belt). I personally don’t like the hem on 3 but it sounds like your dress.

    I can see why you’re having a hard time deciding, they’re all beautiful! I voted for #2, #3 is amazing but that’s a big price difference. If you can afford it though, get the dress you felt happiest in…#3 : )

    I looked at the pics without reading anything first. Without reading about your feelings, I like #2 the best. After reading what your feelings are, I think you should go with #3!!!
