Hello again bees,
Yesterday I posted some photos from one store I went to and today I went to a Maggie Sottero bridal salon. At this point I’m just trying to get a feel for what I like and what looks best on my figure. At the suggestion of many people who commented yesterday, I tried on some more fitted dresses (pictures 4 & 5 are two of them). While I will admit that they look quite nice and I’m glad I tried them on, I did not feel comfortable at all in that style. I feel like the dresses put a bulls eye on my hips! I like picture 4 dress better than 5 but I could hardly walk and so that won’t work. My favorite was the Karena Royale (dress 1) but I think it would look better if it was altered to have a sweetheart neckline. Dress three I didn’t get the name of it so if anyone could ID it that would be awesome! I also wanted to let you guys know that we might end up getting married next summer instead of 2014. The longer we are engaged the more eloping appeals to both of us.

I really like the second one!

Spotlight on your hips? You have a nice figure. I’m not voting because the last one looks amazing on you.

3 options but looks like 5 different dresses?

I think the last one looks amazing on you. There’s nothing wrong with your hips – you have a great figure. If that style makes you uncomfortable, the second dress gets my vote!

@KateByDesign I put the last two pictures up to show what the more fitted dresses look like since so many people commented previously that I should try that style. I didn’t put them in the poll though, because I wouldn’t buy a dress like that. It might look nice on my body, but it doesn’t fit my personality.

I like the fourth pic – the mermaid!

You don’t need to worry a minute about your hips. I love the soft draping of the mystery Maggie — it really adds curves and emphasizes your small waist!

Love the mystery dress on you. And you do have an awesome figure.

I like the last one and the 3rd photo (dress 1 and 2 are the same).
You could pull off any gown with your figure honestly!

I think you look fabulous in the last two dresses (pics four and five), and I also love the first dress. However, I like dresses four and five the best on you.
I’m sorry to say that I do not care for the dress in the third picture. I do not like the organza overlay and how the ruching of it looks on the skirt. If you choose dress one, I would not alter it to have a sweetheart neckline. The lines of the dress are beautiful the way that they are, and I think a sweetheart neckline on that particular dress would compete with and detract from the long, satin sash on that gown.
If I had to choose FOR you, I would choose the last dress — #5.
ETA: I actually like dress #4 (the mermaid) the best on you, because it shows of your amazing figure; however, I didn’t select that one simply because you said you can’t really walk in it.

First or second dress- both different, but both lovely on you!

I like the way the 3rd dress fits you 🙂
