    The Milano is of course nice, but my least favorite compared to the other two. I’m torn between the Hearst and the Lange. The Hearst looks a little more mature, while the Lange seems a bit more whimsical/fairytale-ish, if that makes sense. But both seem to fit with your theme, and you look great in them!

    nattywed :  I love the Hearst – I think it’s perfect on you. As a non-US bride, I had no idea what you meant by ‘overdone’, but even if it is popular in your part of the world, I don’t think that needs to be a dealbreaker. 

    I don’t love the proportions of the top part of the Lange. It just looks a bit wide at the top of the straps, but I see loads of other bees love it.  

    You 100% can’t go wrong with anything. You look stunning and will be a goooorgeous bride!

    nattywed :  I want to like the Hearst.  It has garden elements that are beautiful and fun.  However, the translucent bodice with the visible floating cups is a major killjoy.  I’m going to be blunt. Those floating cups remind me up the stuffing we pull out of the toe of shoes fresh out of the box before we can try them on.  It cheapens the look to the point that I don’t think it meets the classy standards of “wedding gown” as is.  I would get a seamstress to line the entire upper portion of the dress to cut back on the extreme translucency and remove those floating cups.  Wear stick on cups for breast support and use fabric tape on the inside of the bodice to tape it to your skin to keep it in place.  With those alterations done it would be lovely.  But as is, it’s a definite no from me.  I would go with dress number three instead.  That is a gorgeous dress as is.
