    I think they’re all very pretty, but the A-line is stunning on you! Good luck!

    I really love #2 and #3.

    I don’t like the fabric on the first, but maybe with good alterations (or a steam?) it would look nicer.

    You’re so pretty in all of them! I like the a line style on you but not this one specifically. You have the figure for the trumpet and mermaid too, but you look so bridal in the a line.

    You look like you might be a petite, so my one caveat if this is true is to make sure you take a picture standing on the ground with the skirt folded up to where it will hit you when you are judging the trumpet mermaid styles. The cutoff point can really change on non-model tall women and sometimes it doesn’t work as well.

    sparklegirl9:  I had the same problem with mermaids, but I guess everyone probably does. I thought for sure I’d get a mermaid/trumpet dress, but I realized that my hips were much bigger than my bust (so it didn’t look very good on me), and I could barely move! I don’t know how other brides do it!

    I absolutely love #3 and #4 on you!! You look STUNNING in a trumpet! The a line does look more “bridal” but only in the traditional way. So if you are more of a traditional girl, I’d go for that one. If not, #3 for sure!

    sparklegirl9:  I voted for the a-line but I think you should keep looking. Probably for something with the trumpet silhouette of dress 2, which would be easier to move in than a mermaid like dress 1, but that still has the interesting lace detail of 1.

    I like 3 a lot on you, but if your vision is more “sophisticated” than “princess”, it’s probably not what you’re after.

    sparklegirl9:  i like every one of them EXCEPT number 1. the proportions on number 1 are just not as flattering as the other 3….the flare is too low on you.

    #2 is my favourite on you. The satin panel on #1 might wrinkle and photography poorly.

    The aline is really pretty too, if you need major length removed due to your height, it will cost a bundle to cut the lace and reattach it. Just keep that in mind, I’m 4’11 and ruled out a gorgeous gown with a lacey hem because of this.

    Another   vote for the   A line, though the ones above  and below it are good too . Not keen  on the first , it’s that middle panel –  something  a bit off about it and the low flare is not terribly flattering.

    You have such good figure  though you would probably look good  in practically anything
