shinysheep :  As PPs have said, solid colors – particularly in a setting with lots of visual interest like flowers – are going to work best. When you put a pattern in the mix with all the other details, it can draw the eye in a way that isn’t ideal.

While I LOVE the green dress on you (that boat-neck is gorgeous) I would also say the blue will be a better contrast to your surroundings. 

Also, don’t be afraid to try more than one outfit. If there’s a place for you to change, I would do it. It’s nice to see a couple of differnt options. Particularly if there are places on the grounds where you can have a more simple backdrop; that would allow you to wear one of the patterns beautifully. In which case, that last floral dress is TO DIE FOR.

shinysheep :  Definitely #3. The green one works for you perfectly. I really like it!

#4 (pink floral off the shoulder) and #5 (navy/black v neckline and print dress) are really nice as well 🙂

Solids FTW. Timeless.  I think the green solid is particularly lovely with your skin tone!

shinysheep :  I love the green one on you, the cut just suits you so well. It’s cute and sophisticated! I am not sure if it will blend in too much with the color scheme (maybe in the fields) but for gazebos and flower backgrounds it should be nice.

I would use the last dress for more of the greenery background shots 🙂

I would def. do two outfits if time permits!

Aww, yay! They turned out great! And you had the best of both worlds with the coat.

Absolute beautiful, Bee!  Lovely setting!  And the dress, the coat, the shoes; all perfect!

Of course, you could not have made a wrong choice.  But, I did really favor the pink floral.
