Anything else you'd like to tell us?: I have never dreamed about my wedding, so now that it's coming up I have no idea what I want! This includes the dress.

On one side, I love how the tighter fitting dresses look (va-va voom!) but they are uncomfortable to move around in and dancing would not be easy. The A-line/ball gown made of english net is so light and comfortable and romantic - but I can't help but think it doesn't look as good. My family is completely unhelpful so I am asking here for opinions. Or am I just over-thinking something that should be straight forward, haha.


This looks like a great community and I look forward to being a part of it!

I'm a fan of body-hugging ones on frames like yours, and you're no exception. I especially love the strapless mermaid you have on. :)

The second dress is perfect. I look for something the same :)

I'm not very helpful because they all look fantastic on you. I'd personally go with comfort if you want to dance.

I like the 3rd one. It's romantic and very flattering in your beautiful body.

While the third is very pretty and romantic, the second dress suits you the best in my opinion. It highlights your shape beautifully (the third hides it a bit) but is still soft, delicate and lovely. The strapless neckline works much better than the square neckline in the first, too!

On the other hand, do make sure you will be comfortable enough in it! Don't be afraid to spend a lot of time in the shop seeing how you feel wearing it around. You could even try having a little dance in it! From my perspective as someone who works in retail, sure the sales staff may not be thrilled with it, but at the end of the day it is a huge investment and I believe they will understand. I'd say I spent over an hour in the shop in my dress before I bought it on a few different occasions -- mainly because I did not want to take it off! -- and staff were nothing but sweet to me (probably because they could sense how attached I was growing to it!).

Then there's the fact that when it comes to wedding dresses, when you know, you know. The dress I ended up with was the third I tried on. I then tried on a million others after it in an attempt to find something else because it was just over my budget, it was only for one day, etc., etc. And then I went back and got it anyway. I have heard the same story from so many other brides, too! The fact is that what was important to me about the dress (that it looked right, felt right and was within the realm of affordability) came through and couldn't be ignored. I believe that if you give it some time and try to let yourself relax, maybe try on some other dresses, you will easily figure out which dress is *your* dress too.
