    So I thought I had my dress all picked out for our Mexico beach wedding. Here is the link David's Bridal - Chiffon A-line gown with side draped bodice, beaded lace, and lace up back. . I tried this on and it was awesome. I love it. I kicked around the idea of having something more beachy. That is initially what I wanted. I wanted something real flowy and short or floor length without a train. I saw this dress and loved it. Then for the AHR, I was thinking I could get a dress to change into to be more comfortable for later. I emailed my FI a picture of it and he was like, "THATS THE DRESS!" He loves it and thinks I should find something more like that. I honestly really like it but it only comes in a size 2 in white which is not my size. I'm a size 6 in dresses. HELP? Here is a picture of the one he loves. David's Bridal - Short Chiffon Dress with Strapless Sweetheart Neckline

      I agree - he will love whatever you choose...surprise him :) for a casual dress try try nordstroms or jcrew..they have really cute beach wedding dresses.

        I think whatever your FI sees you in he will love. Get the one you love, and then for your AHR you can get one similar to the DB dress if they don't have your size.

          Now you just made your life so much harder right now, cos i bet he wouldnt even remember in two weeks which one you showed him.Take some more time and throw a few more at him not even dresses in your lovveee pile and see his reaction.Dont rely on anyone else to pick otherwise youll be posting second and third dresses hehe x

              So..... I bought the more beachy dress today. Here is my thought..... When it arrives it is returnable. I will try it on and if I dont like it, I will go with the dress I know I love.

                I love the beachy dres, and I think your plan is perfect. I've been unexpectedly surprised with good customer service about returns lately!

                  I found my dress!!! I got the original one and didnt care for it too much. When I was online returning it, I saw another one for $199! It was my style so I ordered it and it arrived today. I love it!! David's Bridal - Side-Drape Embroidered Dress BR1009

                    It's beautiful - I'm glad you found your dress, are you still keeping the short one for the AHR?
