    I know you guys love photos, so I took alot when I went dress shopping on Saturday. I found a few that I love but have some concerns..I'll post my top 3. Please tell me what you think.

    Beautiful Casablanca with gorgeous beading. I felt like a princess with this dress on. Isn't it too much for the beach? Matt is planning on wearing a tan suit and the guys in kahki pants/white shirts. My girlfriends all said it didn't matter what anyone else looks like. I have more photos if necessary.

      Let me tell you.. these dresses fit like a glove. I'm a size 12 and felt like a 6 in this dress. Very light, taffeta. sash color can be changed. I liked the old romantic feel of this dress. Didn't like that I could see the seams down the front because of the light fabric.

        I think it's very pretty. Were you hot in the dress? what is the underside made of or is it just the skirt? I have to agree with your friends, it's your wedding and as long as you feel you won't die from a heat stroke wearing it then get it.. I do think it's flattering on you. (this is in response to the first dress)

        Second dress, LOVE it on you, but definitly with the sash..

          #3. Another Maggie Sottero. Martina is the name of the dress. Beautiful jewels with a full shirt. Chiffon so it's light. My only concern is the jewels reflecting too much light in photos.. I'll find an example of a "real bride" photo so you can see what I mean. (sorry about the back cleavage) lol

            OK after seeing all three.. My vote is #2.. I just really like the way you look in that dress.

              Here's the "real bride" photo of a girl in the Martina.. I would not want all my photos to be that sparkly...

                my favorite is #2 - hands down! that dress is just my style though, they're all beautiful. i love it with the sash - what color would you do? i love the color sash in the photo - but not sure that is your color theme.

                and i agree with Tammy and your friends - who cares what your dress looks like, as long and you love it and feel comfortable! i totally thought the same way about it (my dress) being "too much" for the beach at first - but in the end i wanted the dress that i wanted. done deal!

                anyway - tough choice - they're all great. but my favorite is #2

                  Ok.. one more.

                  #4. Casablanca very much like the first. I haven't tried this one on yet, but loved the romantic feel of the top front with the bottom being plain. The back has a little too much going on.. I think Casablancas can be customized easily so maybe they can take some of the stuff off.

                    I definitely vote for #2, with the sash. Looks awesome on you!

                      Wow you look amazing in all 3 dresses. Each dress makes you look super tiny! I like 3 but agree it looks very sparkly in the photos. I love the top of #1, I am a big fan of beading. I love #2. Its very simple, but very flattering. I like it with or without the sash. My vote os #2, but honestly you will look amazing in any of them, just go back and try them on again and you will know which dress in the "one"
