    I like dress #2 and #4, but all of the dresses are so different that it’s difficult to understand what look you are going for.

    Personally I think dress 2 is by far the most flattering on you. Maybe a hoop or petticoat could help the fullness of the skirt? And I don’t like dress 1 at all, so I guess our opinions are on the opposite spectrum, haha.

    You look great in #1. I don’t think any of the others are even close.

    I am in love with dress 2 & 5, but honestly all the dresses look beautiful on you. My least favorite one is 6. It looks more like a prom dress. I wish you luck. I am looking at dresses now as well (:

    If you want a less beady alternative to the last Maggie Sottero ballgown I would encourage you to seek out a dress by Mori Lee. I work in a shop that carries it and it is by far one of our best sellers, and most popular ballgown. The photo on the model is the light gold however I prefer the ivory which we have in the shop.

    Mori Lee 5276 (retails around $950)

    I might also recommend:

    Essense of Australia D1751 (looks like it might be less busy than the Allure-dress #3 )

    Stella York 5859

    Pronovias ‘Mayumi’ (a fancier alternative to the Allure 2716-dress #2)

    My jaw dropped at #4 and I also like it without the poof too.  I just don’t particularly fancy #1 just because I don’t fancy the textured skirt but if you love it then you should go for it.  I also would not worry about what your fiance “pictures” you in.  You look fabulous in all of them and have a great figure.  Anytime a bride on here mentions what their fiance wants or envisions I feel like 90% of them forget they ever said that when they see their bride on their wedding day.  My fiance predicts that I chose a non-lace ballgown.  I am wearing a lacy mermaid  Pretty sure he is still going to marry me and think I look beautiful.

    I voted for dress #3 but I also love you in dress #2 and dress #6. However, you don’t seem convinced by any of these dresses so maybe you should take some time off from the shopping to sleep on it and think about what you really want and then keep looking.
