A little help: which dress to choose?

Recommended Posts

Ladies, I desperately need your opinion.


We are going to have a beach ceremony. Bare foot, private and small. I am starting to shop for dresses, and obviously getting rather torn apart.


First thing to mention: I am looking for a knock off dress, and I am going to do the TTD session right after the ceremony as we are not planning to have a reception. I already found a nice and simple chiffon dress for the evening that matches my needs and shoes. ;)


I am small (size 4-6), but pear-shaped, so I'm looking at a-line or empire dresses.


My choice number one is tea length a-line taffeta dress. Replica of Mon Cheri Destinations.


My concern here is that taffeta will look too heavy on the beach and it might look weird bare foot. Also since it's a knock off dress, the rouche may be not as nice and elegant...

I am also considering Justin Alexander 8465 replica instead.


I am also thinking about quite a different style. Ruffled floor length chiffon dress. Maybe not necessarily this one, but the style alike.


My FH and father-in-law as well as my father voted for the first one though. And floor length may be not as comfortable in the sand.


And recently I also thought of a simpler option. I can get it in white.




For any dress I come up with, there is transportation to keep in mind. I believe chiffon will take it better and will be easier to recover. Also to match my FH's attire: most likely he's gonna be wearing linen shorts and line. Rather casual, so I don't want to be a complete contrast to his look. I like all of them that's why I need your opinion.


Any thoughts?

    • Peach looks better on tan skin. Red is a nice contrast against fair skin. 
    • How about installing a home web cam? And hire a house sitter to check up every week?
    • You can hire a graphic designer on Fiverr to create the wedding cards then just print them yourself. Another option so you can save money is to create the card how you want it on Canva and have them printed at a printing shop.
    • My wedding is coming soon, and I would like to know where I can find best wedding cards at affordable prices. I only find one store known as Lavenderpaperie.com where the cards are lovely and unique, But I want to know the other option name so that I can choose best wedding card. Please, if you have any suggestion on where to go, let me know. Thanks & Regards,

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress!
