    I think you could choose any level of formality and sparkle for this venue. However, since I have a similar figure, I would suggest that you may want to consider a dress that does not divide your body into thirds like the first dress does.

    It’s difficult to know for sure without seeing it on you, but I think that the second style may be very flattering on you.

    I think it depends on your museum/venue

    i got married in a museum historic home and it was a formal event, but I had a formal yet elegant dress. But I have also seen casual museums/museum homes. 

    Consider  you venue and if your dress is appropriate for it…..i think your backdrop has a lot going on so elegant yet simple would look lovely

    the second dress is absolutely stunning! that being said there is a lot of texture going on in the pic of the venueyou posted. all of the dresses are beautiful but the sleek satin dress would stick out the most. I would say go with the softer texture of the second dress

    I love the second dress and the third dress. The third dress (satin) is elegant andvsimple

    For me a museum is some what of a contemporary venue (unlike a barn, or historic manor with more of a vintage or rustic vibe) I like the idea of satin with emebellishment I think it will fit the contemporary feel. Also a museum is a pretty dramatic backdrop so I would not be afraid of a little sparkle and drama. I wouldn’t count out lace but I would do it in a modern way not too rustic. I am a bridal consultant so I thought I might make some suggestions keeping a classic and contemporary look in mind.

    How did everything turn out? We are thinking of this same venue for the ceremony! Did you have your reception there as well?
