    Wow! You really look amazing in all of them. I really like how unique #3 is but I think #2 is my favorite because it looks more “bridal” if that makes sense. I love BHLDN, too bad they don’t do any alterations in house.

    My vote is for the 2nd one. The 1st one looks a little like lingerie. The 3rd one’s top is nice but the bottom is not flattering at all.

    I like #2 the most, but I would keep looking.

    Love 1 and 2. 2 is a bit more whimsical and perhaps more bridal. Wish it was available when I bought my dress. dream dress!

    I love the halter!! I don’t know why people are saying keep looking, I think that one is gorgeous. So soft and romantic. Not sure why you think it makes you look young, do you think that because of the high neck? Because that is completely balanced or by the open sexy back. Wear your hair up and there you go!

    Halter looks the best but I agree with pp that you should keep looking!

    You should keep looking. Especially since this was only your first dress experience. The three styles are fairly different. You should try to really get a feel of what you like before you buy a dress.

    #2 so far — I’d recommend keep looking as well. Something fit/style wise seems off on all three.

    If you like #1, I think it would like cuter with maybe a lace overlay? The way it is by itself is a tad lingerie-like.

    hannahthenurse :  I dont like the halter one at all (not cause it’s not pretty the fabrics are pretty, but I just never like halter anything).. the other 2 are very pretty but kinda have a “lingerie” vibe? Idk they are a bit too airy and light in my opinion. I say keep looking.

    I love the flowing, fuller skirt  of the halter one+ you have just the right sort of upper body for the halter look.

    The skirt on the bottom one just looks a bit too clingy. I know I’d be sucking in my tummmy all day but I do love the lacy flowers on the train.

    The bodice of the first one reminds me a lot of a long one bra. It’s pretty but a bit more “lingerie” look than bridal look to my eye.

    hannahthenurse :  I guess I’m in the minority- but I LOVE #1. It’s non-traditional, but it’s not like you’re getting married in a catering hall or a hotel ballroom- so I think non-traditional would work. I find #2 to be kind of boring and unmemorable compared to your other choices. It also hides your great figure. #3 is interesting, but there’s something about the fit/shape of the skirt that just seems off to me.
