I really like dress #10. The sweethear neckline looks great on you and I love all the detailing! The others are cute but I like to see sparkly detailingSmile

Of the two, I like 15 better (but then again, I tend to like a more understated look).  Really though, either one will look good on you when they're fitted properly, so go with your instincts!

Thanks girls! I'm still so tor, but I think I convinced my mom to come up at the end of October to dress shop! (So, hopefully, she'll help me pick one...or one will be discontinued by then and make my life easier.) 

I'll probably try at least one more store between now and then... and of course I'll post photos when it comes up. (I know it's fun to see actual pictures and I personally an enjoying seeing what people say).

well out of all of them i really liked number 9 on u... i thought it looked gorgeous on u... even tho it is plain... maybe you could have some custom beading done or if u found a dress like it with more sparkle if thats what u were wanting would look absolutely stunning on u... cant wait to see the ones from the next trip :)

 

i was meant for him and he was meant for me :)

13-- It makes you look thinner and shows off your curves.

KareBear- Sweetie, you're looking gorgeous in those gowns!  If dress 10 fits like dress 9, then that's a winner.  A couple of the other Maggie's in mind that have the detail under the bust that lifts up the eye are the Tuscana Vidal seen here http://www.maggiesottero.com/dress.aspx?pageSize=64&page=5&style=A614 and the Grace Lynette seen here http://www.maggiesottero.com/dress.aspx?keywordText=Grace+Lynette&keywordType=any&pageSize=8&page=1&style=J122  They are also both corset lace up backs. 

As if you need more dresses thrown at you!!!!

So, I went shopping again at David's Bridal in MA and had a MUCH better experience. I posted pictures up. There's one I really like, but I'm going to wait and see what other people think. (Don't take the existence or lack of style numbers as a hint -- I forgot to write them down and couldn't identify them all in pictures.)

So, what do you girls think? (Don't forget - feel free to be honest...I can take it!)

 P.S. Don't worry - I've got my mom on this too, and I'll end up going with the one I love, but I want to see if the one I think is most flattering on me is the one others think is too!

i like dress #2 because of the lace cut out and i think it looks really pretty on you. and i think it was dress #4...it had the belt like thing that came to a point under the bust, i think it's really a slimming effect and the back of that dress is so pretty. what one was your favorite?

I think dress 2 looks amazing on you...but I also love dress 4.

good luck on your dress hunt!  I swear I must have tried on at least 30 before I found mine (also a DB)

I think Dress 2 is the one. I wanted a little bit of lace without having it be overwhelming. Plus, it comes in petite, which is HUGE for me.

Kare- I'm very attracted to dress 2.  I love the lace overlay.  The great thing about lace is it looks very elegant without being to busy.  Sometimes, with a fully beaded dress, it can overdo you (if beading isn't your thing it's easy to get burnt out on). 

Dress 3 is nice and simple.  I remember you were wanting more simple, right?  I also makes your curves look very nice and the train doesn't seem to be as long.

I like what dress 4 is trying to do.  It's trying to draw the eye up to the bust and cinch in your waist.  However, I don't like the detail on the back of the dress for one thing.  Call me picky but it is driving me NUTS.  Look at photo number 8.  Follow the detail from the bottom of the zipper.  It looks like it has some giant arrow pointing to your butthole.  ODD?!  lol 

You're still looking lovely!  (And that's my honest opinion!) Laughing

Aww, karebear, I could tell just by looking at your smile that dress 2 is the one.  You look so radiant and happy!  The dress is gorgeous on you...congrats!
