    Hi BDWers,

    Thank you all for your thoughts and opinions on my wedding dress (Maggie Sottero Reese). While I do love the dress I just think that it may be too much for my tiny 5'1" height.

    I decided to go out and look at some new options and since my wedding is just two months away I need to go with something I can walk away with from the store (& the best part is that some of these dresses are already shortened to close to my size). Here are my favorites from the shopping trip that I can have immediately. Please let me know what you think and if one is the winner. Also, I hate the weird faces I was making- I always feel funny when they are taking photos at the shops- please ignore! Thanks!

    Dress #2-- Not as comfortable as dress 1 but better chest

    Dress #3-- This dress was way too big so the draping doesn't look like it would once it is altered. Also, b/c of the clamping on the back I'll attach a pic of how it looks when the size is right.

    Dress #4-- This dress is from a private seller so she didn't have clips to make the dress smaller for it to look like it fits in the picture. I'm also not wearing shoes so it is too long.

        I personally like dress #2...I think they all look gorgeous on you. But I love the cut on the front and the back. It also makes you look taller! Good luck!

              I agree with #2...once it's altered it'll look drop dead gorgeous!

                I have to agree with everyone so far and pick #2 as my favourite on you. I also think #3is really elegant and romantic and I especially love the way it drapes on the back. I would pick that if that's the look you were going for. Good luck!

                    I can't decide whether I like #2 or #4 better. They are both so beautiful!

                      While there is no denying the the back of #4 is breath taking, #2 was totally the Oh la la feeling!!

                      So #2!!!!
