Once I get over my envy of how tall you are … LOL…work IT! You can probably wear anything and look amazing! Pick what YOU feel the most comfortable in. I’m 5’4 (on a tall day) and the man is 5’6 and doesn’t like it when I wear my rockin heels and am taller than him….silly man! BUT, I really want a mermaid style dress, I love them, and they would show off my booty which he loves. I think with your height, you can really get away with whatever you like, mermaids are fab, fitted and then flared, so sexy but not overdone. But you could also rock a fitted A-line, try some on, see what feels good to you. Whatever you decide on, he’s going to be floored (you’re like me & don’t dress up much…when I do..he’s like Dang!). You’re going to look amazing, he’s going to love your dress! Choose a dress that’s you!!!

Why not try to find a dress that is mostly your vision with a splash of sexy?  Maybe that will be hard, but why not try looking and see what you can find…

But yes, I think your Fiance would also love to have you in some cute/sexy lingerie for the honeymoon!

Maybe he wants to see you all decked out because he was so floored the first time, and since you dont have many opportunities to dress up it seems, maybe that’s what he is most excited for for the wedding 🙂 There are a ton of pretty dresses out there

When I began looking for dresses, I particularly liked this one

You should consider trying on dresses similar to the ones he would love.  But you need to feel comfortable in a sexy dress to pull it off, so if it doesn’t feel right when you are trying it on you should pick a gown that you love.  But if it works for you, you should certainly go for it!

I think that until you start trying dresses on, it is really hard to determine which type of dress will be the one.  When you start going to bridal salons, tell the attendent that you want to try on both styles of dresses.  You may be suprised on which one feels like THE one.  I also think that regardless of which style you choose, once he sees you walking down the aisle, he is not going to be disappointed. My advice until then–keep dress choices to yourself. Let it be a surprise and he will definitely be excited–not matter what type of dress you wear!

I took my FI’s idea of a dress for me into consideration, but he said he pictured me in a big, poofy wedding dress, so I nixed that idea.

Being tall, the locations will recommend fitted mermaid dresses. They are considered the "best dress" for tall ladies! Personally I didn’t like them. I wanted the flare of an A-line but the drama of a mermaid.

I got a slim, dropped waist a-line. It has a corset lace up, so it hugs my curves all the way to the bottom of my hips then flares out softly. I consider it sexy and attractive but not boring. It’s flattering, and that’s what you want!

Can you show us with your Fiance showed you? You say "sexy wedding dress" and i automatically start thinking of ones that have sheer tops, LoL. When i’m sure you just mean fitted! =]

I am having the same issue with my Fiance. You should go try on gowns first, just to see what styles look good on you. Then you can really narrow down the search. What you had in mind originally may change. Personally, I think he will be pleased with anything you wear once you put it on. If you wear something you don’t feel comfortable in just because he suggested it, you will kick yourself later.

At least he didn’t suggest this…which was MY FI’s rebuttal to all of my ideas. UGH!

I’d say try a few dresses on in every style. you will get a better idea of what your body looks like. I, too, don’t want something very poofy, and when I went on my first dress shopping experience I tried on things of all styles.

I love JoesWifey’s 3rd suggestion! It looks bridal, but sexy, and also like it would fit in an outdoor "backyard" wedding! Definitely try on everything and then pick whatever makes you feel prettiest.

I’m impressed that many of your FI’s gave opinions on your dresses. Mine definitely could not have cared less!

Honestly, my first thought is that his idea of a dress fits the relaxed wedding you’re planning more than yours. What about something from JCrew? They have pretty, simple dresses that show a little bit of you. 🙂 Here are some that I think would be perfect for an outdoor, Oregon wedding for a hot, granola girl. 😉

i wish i could provide some suggestions but for sure my tastes are different from yours. i had a bit of the opposite problem when I went dress shopping. I first purchased a classic fitted a-line, but when it finally came in and I went for my first fitting, it was clear from the photos that the dress wasn’t me. I tend to dress in a more sexy, slinky (but still classic, not trashy) style when i get dolled up, but i was trying too hard to be "wedding classic" with the first dress if you know what i mean. as soon as my mom and fi saw my photos from the fitting they knew i didn’t feel like myself in the dress. we went out and bought another dress that was just more…"me." and you know what? I felt so beautiful and glowy and NOBODY thought my dress wasn’t classic enough or my look was too trendy.

long story short, you should pick what YOU feel comfortable in. However, you may be surprised to discover that the One isn’t exactly what you pictured at first, and that you feel beautiful in something that you consider "sexy." other bees’ suggestion that you try on both types of dresses as well as styles in between in order to gauge how YOU feel in different dresses is SUPER IMPORTANT. imho, if you have it and feel good about it, then flaunt it (as long as your are comfortable doing so)!!
