    Each dress has their own personality, so it really depends on your personal style and what you want your wedding to be like. My impressions:

    1. Style is quirky, fun, fairy tale wedding

    2. Simple, casual, outdoor wedding maybe

    3. Traditional, formal

    4. Elegant, formal, sexy

    5. Modern and sexy

    Which one fits your personality best?

    (I voted for #1)

    Dress 1 and 2 are achingly similar. I wouldn’t want to pick between them without seeing them in real life. But 1 sits much better on your body and seems slightly more interesting. For a more relaxed wedding, this dress is ideal. Don’t pick based on the thin straps as they could be added or removed whichever you picked.

    Dress 3 is a truly lovely dress. Which is why I have seen a variation of it on half the brides I ever see here recently in the UK. For me that would rule it out as I’ve seen it too many times, it’s just become repetitive to me. But if it’s not a common style in your area, I have to say it looks good on you.

    Dress 4 shows you off very nicely. Are you a showy girl though? This is a dress that needs to feel like ‘you’. It’s so very different to dresses 1 and 2- are you sure what you want yet? What would suit your wedding venue better? Flowy and boho, or lacy and sexy?

    I don’t like 5. It is probably my personal taste but I find these kind of long v-neck dresses only work on very tall skinny model types and even on them, they look boring to me. Sorry. It’s just not is just my taste.

    It’s between dress 3 and 4 for me. I think you’ll look better without the lace straps. The sweetheart neck line/bustline will be great!!! If I had to choose between dresses 3 and 4, it’ll have to be dress three. 😀 good luck on finding your final dress!!!

    I love number 3, but I gotta say…you’ll rock any one of them and there has to be a connection with one for you to say yes 🙂  I bought mine today and it took me by surprise….didn’t know I’d like it but I cried when I looked in the mirror….your opinion is the most important.

    JessRae:  Tulle is a relatively lightweight material. I had a huge tulle ballgown for my wedding with a long train. After my dress was bustled at the reception I danced all night long without any issues.

    JessRae:  It was just buttons that the seamstress had sewed on the dress (they were concealed so you couldn’t see them). You would have to have your maid of honor or your mom go with you to the final fitting so they can see how to attached the dress to the buttons (it’s not overly complicated, don’t worry). If you want it bustled in between the ceremony and reception, have someone bustle you in, and then when you are entering the reception (for your first dance) have the bustle removed and then reattached whenever you want. I think adding a bustle will be more cost effective to buying two dressses or settling on one that you aren’t crazy about.

    I think the asymmetrical tulle and straight across neckline on dress #1 don’t do you enough justice. I love #2! The bodice, the thin straps, the clean skirt… it’s like a more refined version of dress #1. Completely flattering and timeless!
