    lol thanks girls. I was actually pretty happy in all the dresses that I posted. Dress #2 really was the 2nd dress I tried on and I was really excited at how thin I looked. I was making wierd/plain faces in the other ones because I was listening to the lady helping, talk about each dress and discuss options.

    The only ones I wasn't really happy about were the ones I tried at David's Bridal. I got into each dress myself and the lady helping us kept leaving to help other people (she had two brides!)... and to top it off, it was really warm in the store.

    #2 does have a broach on it, I'll be sure to get a close up. Very antique looking, which I did like alot.

    I have an appointment at another salon tomorrow.. I'll post results.

      Chiming in.....

      I vote number 2!!!!!

      I like it with or without the sash so you could totally wear it either way. You looked really good in all of them as far a fit was concerned.

      Number 2 gives you so many "look" options. Good luck with the final decision.

        All 3 look great! My favorite was #3. You might want to talk to your photographer and see what they can do about toning down the sparkle. They may have a filter that they can use on the lens to reduce the glare/star effect. I also loved #2, without the sash.

          i do want to say - don't be afraid of the bling! one think i liked about the dress I got is that it did have a little sparkle to it - i like a little bling, especially on my wedding day! if you're a sparkle girl - then go for it!

              I'm a little late, but I really like #3. The gathers at the waist are very flattering. However, I understanding your concerns about the "sparkles" in your pictures.

              #2 also lookd fantastic on you. #4 is beautiful and would love to see a picture of you in it.

              I agree with your friend, that you should get the dress that you WANT and that you LOVE. It's your wedding day and you can wear whatever dress you want to!

              My FI is wearing a tan suit and a Tommy Bahama style suit and I'm wearing a full on beaded wedding gown. ....and, I'm going to feel beautiful in it!

              Good luck! Looking forward to seeing which dress you choose!

                Can I just say I hate when salons won't let you take a picture of you in a dress!! I have the world's worst memory and after trying on 6 dresses, I can't remember what the first one looked or felt like. lol good thing my girlfriend was there to take notes. So to add to my dress collection. I tried on this one.. It's a Maggie Sottero, Calla Lily.. loved everything about it except the fabric underneath. It felt like a heavy drape. There was flowy organza on top so it was weird to have it sooo structured underneath. I'm going to back to the first salon on Saturday to discuss options for fixing.. my other idea was to combine the top of one Casablanca with the back of another and add a lace up back.. what do you think?

                  See that's why you "don't" ask and have a friend help you in and out of your dress.. bring a camera phone.. :-) What they don't know, won't hurt them. lol.. I say if your trying to make a dress work, this I don't think you found "the one" yet. Keep looking, there is one out there that will make you feel great and you won't want to take it off..
