Hello all –
Longtime reader first time poster! I’m having a destination wedding this fall and I need your help choosing the perfect lace dress! The wedding will take place in a gazebo, but we will be trashing the dress on the beach. I’m also pretty conservative, so I’d prefer not to show any cleavage (which is a concern with dress #2). One last consideration is that all of our guests will be wearing shades of white for the wedding. I will be changing into a turquoise dress for the reception, but would still like to make sure it’s clear I’m the bride during the ceremony. Thanks so much for all of your help!
Dress #1: The Sweetheart Neckline
Dress # 2: The V-Neck
Dress #3: The Keyhole Back

I really love #2 on you. The other two are fine, but that one just looks good on you. The first would be my second choice. Although it has a nice back, I am not a fan of 3 at all.

I like #1…especially if it’s going to be hot, i wouldn’t want fabric up around my neck/shoulders.

Thanks everyone! This has been so helpful!
@li612: What a good point. I have purposefully limited my choices to dresses that I didn’t think would be too hot, but I didn’t think about material around my shoulders.

#1 because I feel it would stand out as the bride more 🙂 And you look fabulous in it 🙂

#2, because I love different necklines and the whole dress looks really flattering on you. It’s a personal preference, but I’m so over strapless. As a wedding photographer, it’s what 99% of all my brides wear and the strapless dresses all start looking a like these days.

They’re all gorgeous! I voted for #1. I also love #2 on you, but I understand your concern about cleavage. I tried on that dress too and loved it, but I knew that I would feel uncomfortable.

I really like #2 on you. the v neck and wider straps really flatter your shoulders and shape. I also think showing a little cleavage on the beach is perfectly fine.

I vote for either #1 or #2. Both are really gorgeous!
