I have tried on A LOT of dresses and like too many of them. I seriously need help with a few things. I am a newbie so bare with me. 🙂 I am getting married in a barn and don’t want something extremely formal but I don’t want to look like a bridesmaid either. I like the “romantic look”. I like tulle, organza, and lace. I like strapless A-lines and ballgowns the most. I love dropped and natural waists. Other than that its in the air on style.
Number one: Should I buy a dress in the store or risk a place like Dressilyme.com or Jasminesbridal?
I found SO many dresses I LOVE at dressilyme but I have read some reviews that the more intricate the higher the risk of the dress turining out not the way you want it. And have heard so many success stories. Here are a few that I am considering. Some are mock dresses of Mori Lee, Wtoo, Rosa Clara and I believe Allure.

Can you see I am conflicted!? Haha.
Number two: What are your guys favorite dresses of these ones below. These ones I have tried on. I will put designer pictures with as well since my camera on some kinda sucks. Excuse my awkard faces. :p
David Bridal- Galina
Mori Lee Blu-4808
Mori Lee Blu- 4604
These pictures are pretty terrible but from what you can see what is your favorite?
Do you think the online dresses would be better then these ones I have tried on? Any opinons I would appreciate. 🙂 PLEASE help this bride out????

I love the silhouette of dresses 2 and 4 on you! I don’t have any experience with the replica makers, though. Sorry!

I love the silhouette of #2 or #4 on you, and #2 seems to fit your venue better.
You should add a poll! You will get more feedback that way.

I love #1. Have you considered buying used? Its usually about half the price of retail and most people sell them after they have been professionally cleaned. Thats how I bought my dress. I saved a lot in alterations that way too because it was already hemmed (seller is same height as me).

First off, we have the exact same name(if your sn is your real name)! I saw this topic and was like “I don’t remember posting this!” lol. Secondly, I love the second one! Sooo pretty!

if you are having your wedding in a barn have you considered how dust, dirt, straw, and tule will go together? I would hate to have you walking around your wedding with a dress full of straw. Also I don’t know how tall your shoes are but it looks like dres 3 has a bit of a trane behind it.
My vote is for number 1 for its simple elegant not super formal look, but those flowers are so adorable they might be distracting me from everythign else.

I like the Galina the best on you. #4 might be nice too but its hard to tell in that picture.

I personally think youshould buy the dress in the store- peace of mind = happy bride.
I think #3 works best on your slight frame, plus is better for your venue. To me, the slimmer silhouette is better suited to a barn wedding than the poufier dresses.

You should add a poll 🙂 I love the last one on you! It’s princess-like!

The Mori Lee Blu dress looks AH-MAZING on you. It makes your body look insane!
(I’m talking about the 2nd picture. Your post was a little confusing.)
