    I voted for dress 1, but I also really like dress 2 a lot! All of them look amazing on you, you’ve got a awesome body for any of these dresses. I love the detail of dress one as it goes towards the bottom and the train…but then, I love the simplicity and modern vintage look of dress 2. I think what it will come down to is what look fits your vision for the wedding best.

     

    Sorry if I made it more difficult! Good Luck and let us know what you decide!

    I really like #1– it is so pretty and delicate and fits you beautifully. That’s the one I voted for. I also really like the vintage one– I think it might be possible to modify it so it’s longer in front (by adding a layer of lace) and you could even take off the sleeves and maybe make little flutter sleeves, or have it be sleeveless.

    I love #1 but I actually really like the vintage one too! If it feels a little old-fashioned, you could have the neckline altered a bit. The story of that last one would be pretty special, and the price is right for sure.

    Surprisingly, I really love the vintage dress!  I would remove the sleeves – I think it would look really modern that way.  I might also make it a v-shape neckline and more of a keyhole back, and use a different sash.

    I am totally torn but ultimately voted for number 2.  It is so elegant.  I even like the lace bolero, and I do not usually like lace.  It seriously made you look like a royal bride.  I also like number one but I think the combo on number two is more interesting.  I LOVE the vintage dress but its REALLY REALLY REALLY vintage so I did not vote for it because you said that you are not really going for that theme.

    @mrsgroomzilla:  Wow…this is hard. You look amazing in almost everything. Thebests are 2, 3, and the vintage.

    1. NOPE, this one is doing nothing to flatter or enhance your figure. I like the delicacy of the lace, but the dress itself just…hangs.
    2. A beautiful choice. You look like royalty in this dress, esp. with the bolero added. And for what it’s worth, in these photos, the color looks lovely against your skin.
    3. Another “wow” dress, for certain. I adore the bold lace pattern, and fit is just amazing. You can always take in the straps if you think they’re too wide, but I can honestly say that “boxy” is the last thing I’d think of when I see you in this dress.
    4. I despise this one. It’s doing absolutely nothing for your figure, the varied directions of the fabric is bad 90s Homecoming, all of the ties are too messy, and it gives the bias cut a terrible name. You can do much better. Don’t let low prices sway you into buying an unflattering, poorly-constructed dress. There are tons of affordable gowns out there that are even more lovely than the super expensive ones.
    5. I was suprised by how much I adore this dress! The fit is wonderful, and I think it is just an overall gorgeous dress. Really, the only things I’d change is 1) streamline the sleeves, 2) lower the neckline to a bateau, 3) add lace to the train to make it a rounded shape. Though, I can see your point about the alterations cost if you want to keep spending to a minimum.

    #3  The shape of it, coupled with the shape of the bust part, with your slim figure really makes you look like you walked out of a bridal magazine.

    Love love love #3 on you, but gotta say dress #5 just seems to a certain something about it too. Can see why you are stuck.

    2! OMG definitely #2! with the bolero for the church, and without at the cafe, it’s beautiful! It’s expensive because it’s simplicity done well and it’s stunning
