I think if it fits you better and you’re okay with wearing the same dress to both the ceremony and reception, go with the second option! I think it is a pretty dress. Good luck deciding! 🙂

I like the Reception dress best.  But that is just me.  Can you not use that dress for the ceremony too?

The first ceremony dress it rather bare for a Catholic Mass — will they let you wear it without something on your shoulders?

Wear the Claire Pettibone dress for everything.  It looks ridiculously beautiful and (in my humble opinion) much nicer than the other two dresses.  Good luck!

I like the third dress the best.

I like the dress with the Bolero and the sash….I think it would be pretty for a your wedding and then you could remove the Bolero and where a different sash or no sash for your reception. Or you could do a more glitzy sash that has rhinestones on it too…..to dress it up more.

I don’t much care for the third dress, but I like the other two quite a bit.  I am a little confused about your fit comment, though — would you be buying the sample, or would they be ordering one in your size?  If you can get the first two in your size, I’d definitely go that route (plus, it’s always fun to have 2 dresses!) — or even if they could do alterations on the sample to make it fit you better (don’t know how big it is on you).  But, if the first two are just never going to fit you properly, I would go for the third just so it wouldn’t be bagging off of you or anything.

I love all the dresses, it’s just they all sort of look alike with the exception of the first reception dress.  Usuallly bides who change dresses have a really heavy hot dress for the ceremony.  Your ceremony dress doesn’t look heavy or hot.  If you want to be a two dress bride… why not do something totally different for your reception?  I think most reception dresses are either short or they have a certain wow factor (color, beaded, etc…) 

 

   They are all beautiful, it just seems strange to change into another wedding dress just for the sake of having two.

The first dress is okay, I have seen many times before.  I LOVE the Claire pettibone dress.  GORGEOUS.  You could always just get a pretty shawl/bolero/cardigan for the ceremony, and remove for the reception, no?  The 3rd dress looks a lot like the first.  I don’t love it from the front, but the back is also beautiful.  But, most people will look at your front!  I honeslty think you can work with the 2nd dress!
