lmao yea exactly i still cannot figure out why i love COMPLETELY different dresses. i am leaning towards one over the other and have pretty much decided it is “it” i think lmao!! the thing that made me sort of decide more than another was i wanted to feel a certain way in my dress. and my front runner conveyed how i wanted to feel versus just being a pretty dress, if that makes sense.

Yeah…my favorites were totally different. None was a ballgown and none had much “bling” to them, but in terms of silhouettes and material there was a BIG difference.  

@legally – are you still choosing btwn the 3 you posted the other day, or have you thrown others into the mix???

@ crebe – You aren’t thinking of something besides the awesome mermaid you showed us before?  I think you need to post both so that we can have some input on this before you do anything rash!

I was stuck between 2- they were both very girlie, sweet and romantic.. but beyond that they were very different.  I loved them both so much, but in the back of my mind there was no question.  I had made up my mind the first time I put it on.  Just think about each dress and ask yourself “if I don’t wear this, will I be thinking what if when I look back at my wedding pictures?”

Or… just go the ol Weddingbee standard route and post a poll with pics of your favs and see what one wins! 🙂  But, even when I brought my mom and my sister to see my final 2 dresses I still went against my sister’s opinion- and I value her opinion A LOT.  When it comes down to it, you go with what you love more.

That’s actually a great position you’re in, consider yourself lucky to have several favorites you can choose from! I tried on 100+ and didn’t fall in love with any of them Undecided

Lol, I started what, like 8 dress threads or something, because I likes so many DIFFERENT dresses, dropped waists, natural waists, full ball gown, modified A, tulle, satin, plain, embellished. lol

I wound up with Pronivias’ Megan which is modified A/trumpet’ish, with the body and movement of a ball gown, with almost all my favorite elements combined 🙂

I know, I wonder the same thing. My two favorite styles are both at least fairly traditional in feel, but they look sooo different. I am hoping to try to picture myself actually walking down the aisle and getting married in the final contenders. With my last dress (I’m selling), I can’t picture that at all. I can picture me in the dress; I can picture me going to a fancy wedding somewhere else or whatever, but when I try to see myself standing next to Fiance in it on top of the hill where we’ll be married… I just can’t see it. It doesn’t fit together in my mind! Maybe that can help you?

you pick because you have to – you have better things to do than dwell over 3 perfectly good choices.  Just pick one and stick with it and focus on something else. Just do it, don’t think too much about it.  DO it!  Get out your credit/debit card… surf to your dress’s website… call them and give them money… do it.  Doooo ittttt.. you will look and feel great.

Or if WB hypnotism doesn’t work for you, do what i did – actually buy 3 dresses, hang them in your closet, get your Maid/Matron of Honor who is editor of a wedding mag to come over and tell you which one looks the best and promptly sell the rest / get a refund before you can think twice about it.  If you can’t do that, haha, Find someone close that isn’t afraid of decision making or truth telling and you’ll have your answer pretty quickly.
