    Love the new photos – thanks for adding. So outdoors in Carmel Valley……not super formal not super casual………..here’s my gut (and yes, I always have more than 2 cents).

    based on the photo w/the woman’s hands at your waist, it appears you have a tiny figure. I’d accentuate your waist even more – maybe with a ribbon or an even larger belt (if you decide on # 3). Every figure can find a beautiful gown but a beautiful figure can really work the wow factor. You’ve got that so work it girl! πŸ™‚

    I’d still like to see you in ivory to at least compare. Or maybe a white dress w/gold jewelry to warm it up. The white looks really cool on your skin and it I think a champagne, ivory or even better -a blush dres would really rock on you.

    the #2 dress is darling on you and if you really want to go short, go short. Remember that you can always wear a short dress to someone else’s wedding but you can only wearing a wedding dress on your own wedding day.

    The #2 dress has a vintage late 40’s or early 50’s look to it. I’d like to see you try on some more modern dresses just to see how they might work with your location and venue.If you’re going for modern California, try some other gowns.

    look at Elizabeth Dye’s site from Portland (models are a tad on the too thin side but her gowns are very feminine.) http://www.elizabethdye.com

    anthropologie’s wedding site goes up on 2/14

    If you love #2, go for it. I’m guessing you don’t and that’s why you posted a poll w/other dresses. Try out some other designers and styles and you’ll start getting a feel for what works with your figure. If after that, you are still thinking about #2, then that is the dress that is for you. Focus on that tiny waist and post more photos for us πŸ™‚

    #2 looks so beautiful but you have a great figure so they are all very flattering. πŸ˜€

    I voted for no.1 cause it seemed the most bridal to me, though all these dresses are so gorgeous!!

    I think you should take another picture of dress two and show him again… the lighting in that picture isn’t very good and i think the shadows of the fabric could be what he doesn’t like the look of.  try getting a picture in good lighting and see what he thinks… see if he even knows it is the same dress!!!

    I don’t really like the belt. If it were me I’d do the dress plain and wear some big gorgeous jewelry.

    @Entangled: I’m going to have to say that I agree with one of the bees above. I don’t think men know what they really like, and showing him a picture out of context isn’t really the BIG picture. I’m only saying this because I fully believe that dress #2 looks AMAZING on you!

    But I understand where you’re coming from. Have you had any luck finding maybe something similar he might be more into?

    @Entangled: Yes the belt makes it more bridal, more special, AND it accentuates your waist more.

    @Entangled: And don’t go with whether you think the belt is YOU or not, just get it if you like it. πŸ™‚
