    I love the third one. The top and bottom are so beautiful and look great on you!  I live I SF too!  Which restaurant are you having your reception at?  Is it Le Colonial or Slanted Door?

    Berkeley redwoods is a gorgeous place for a wedding!

    hannahthenurse :  I love the last one and LOVE your wedding plan! I have slowly convinced my fiancée to go for a 20 person max wedding on a mountain somewhere (I’m not even picky about which mountain, although we are leaning toward Asheville) followed by dinner. I just emailed a bunch of wedding planners in the area and I’m hoping all will work out!

    As a fellow small chested bee, I dont think the first one is doing you any favours. Its my least favourite.

    I really like #2, an #3 would be my next!

    You’re gorgeous in all! I actually really like number 1 and I believe with your body type you pull it off well without looking toooooo sexy and slinky. 

    I ended up finding my dress when I was shopping alone! I really found that I preferred the alone experience cus it took my focus off of others reactions and back to what I really loved the most. 

    Best of luck with the decision, I know how hard it is!

    I love them all, but have to go with the halter #2!

    I like #2 if you had to go with one of these, but I’d probably do more shopping and see if you find something you like better!

    hannahthenurse :  LOVE the 2nd one! Mostly love the 3rd one! The top one I agree with a PP, looks a little night gown-y. I think 2 and 3 are perfect for your wedding (especially 2)!

    #1 is actually my favorite here because I think it’s the most flattering on you — though it looks like the straps could be shortened a bit to make it slightly less low-cut. I also like #3. #2 doesn’t do anything for me. I think at an outdoor Berkeley wedding no one would think this was too “lingerie.” But it can’t hurt to try on more stuff as others have suggested.

    I love the 3rd one on you. The other two are very pretty, but they almost look like nightwear. The 3rd one looks like a wedding gown.

    hannahthenurse :  you have an AMAZING shape and they all look so gorgeous on you but i vote number one all the way!! That is so classic and elegant, yet subtly sexy. Not many people can pull that look off and you are rocking it!
