    The third one is may absolute choice. I really love it. It's so simple but elegant-looking!

      I actually went to the store yesterday and tried it on and loved it.  I have one more bridal shop to hit tomorrow and then its decision time but I am leaning towards that 3rd one above.  The others were not in the store.  For me its a ceremony and reception dress so it has to fit both bills.  I was surprised how well it fit and how comfortable it was - I can definitely see myself in it all night!

        I absolutely fell in love with this dress, but it didn't feel quite "bridal" enough for me: http://www.oscardelarenta.com/?folderId=/collections/bridal/spring2011#lookId=5&

          I love these two dresses below!  The bottom one looks like it may have pockets which really goes with my laid back beach wedding.  I will have to add this to the growing list of things to try on.

              Is this BCBG? I have been watching a similiar one on Ebay.  How does it look in person?

                  Is anyone wearing their wedding dress again for their AHR? My mother is adamant that I wear it again so people can see it. lol. I would love to wear it again, but I don't want to feel silly.

                   

                  I am looking for a short white dress for the rehearsal dinner. There are so many amazing dresses in this thread!

                      Yes I am wearing my dress again for the AHR. I don't think you should feel silly. You are the bride whether it is your actually wedding day or not! :)
