I love the shape of Gia, but satin might be a little heavy for a garden wedding in spring.  The other 2 are beautiful as well.  Can you post a pic of Gala from the front?

Out of the three dresses I prefer the tulle. I went with the fabric that looked good on me as I didn’t suit satin or tulle. So ut will depend on how it looks and feels on you. Good luck and enjoy 😉

For me fabric wasn’t the most important, as it was more the style of the dress. I like lace dresses, but they aren’t for me, b/c I didn’t want something that fitted. I also love dresses w/ tulle, but didn’t want a tulle dress for my wedding, mostly b/c tulle dresses are more “ballgownish.”

My dress was taffeta, lighter and not as heavy as other materials, which was perfect for my all outdoor wedding.

I don’t know what other brides’ experiences with taffeta have been, but the associate at J. Crew warned me that it sometimes photographs funny when I was deciding between silk tricotine (a lightweight, slinky fabric) or a silk taffeta gown. She said it sometimes looks almost metallic in photos.

Yeah, again, I didn’t take photos of myself in the gown and don’t know for sure, but that’s what she claimed. I really do like the look of the taffeta gown you posted here, though.

I like #2 the best by far.  I love lace and soft, flowy fabrics.

#2 is very pretty! I didn’t think I would like tulle, but the effect it creates at the bottom of a skirt is so ethereal and soft.

I agree with PP’s. The satin is lovely but probably too heavy for a garden wedding.

Taffeta always reminds me of my hideous choir dress from high school. Gives me an automatic aversion to the fabric.

I think #2 is very pretty and light and gardeny.

My dress is chiffon, which is also a light soft fabric. You might try some on in that fabric as well. I totally didn’t think I’d want that style but loved it as soon as I tried it on!

@kala_way: Tulle is stunning and always gives a very romantic soft vibe.
