I went to try on more dresses today and now Im not sure what I want, I wasnt allowed to take photos so I know its difficult.
First is Tia, Ive always wanted a fitted lace dress but I love this one, esp the pockets! it has lace on the bust incase you cant see
Next is Jacqueline, I love this dress also, it seems so much prettier than in the picture.. but its everything I love! this one is most expensive but its still under my budget of 2000
And next is my first love that I would plan to get made with a local seamstress as a designer dress like this would cost a bomb in NZ! I have a quote for it and its quite cheap. I havent tried this on thats why I think im still unsure, just one similar that was an a line skirt, this is an allure 9004. so getting it made I feel like I might be dissapointed that the belt would look different and it might not look the same
And finally a picture of us so you know what body shape I am 🙂

I voted for the Jacqueline, because I’m a sucker for a lace back.
But the other two styles are likely to be more figure-flattering to a wide range of shapes – it’s hard for me to say what would suit your body-type, even with the photo, as the dress you’re wearing appears to be quite loose-fitting.

I’m in Wellington. I purchased my dress a couple of months ago from brides on thorndon. They had 30% off all shop stock so my $2400 dress became 1900. Still have to pay for alterations.
Omg the maggie I wanted from astra I was quoted 4k. Ummmm no thanks!! Ive been past some of the bridal shops in Christchurch some of them are amazing!
Here is my dress, it’s essense of Australia:

I just bought this Allure 9004!!!
It’s just PERFECT!! But I am brazilian and I went all the way to Miami just to buy it. The price was good ($1,600).
But this Jacqueline looks really beautiful. I think you should go with this! 🙂

I tried on the Allure 9004, and it’s a beautiful dress. It didn’t fit me as well as some of the other gowns I had tried on, and it was a little baggy through my hips. The problems I had probably could have been resolved by a good seamstress, but without knowing for sure, I didn’t want to risk it.
