ennie, meanie, mineie, moe

so we all know (or you may not) that I am Maid of Honor for my fabulous cousin miss jilly's wedding in May, in Punta Cana. I've tried well, several dresses that just aren't what i'm looking for, and alas most don't fit or flatter my "hour glass" figure.

so miss jilly and I have been scouring the Internet, Macy's, Sears, David's Bridal and Alfred Angelo, miss jilly has contacted a local Bridal shop that is closing and has Alfred Angelo's dresses at 50%, these are a few that she has in stock, in my size (and no i am not telling what size that is :P )

Dress #1, I have no idea if they have it in this color, but it's the color that I like most for a tropical wedding..
Dress #2, again not sure what color they have or even if this burnt orange would look good on me (i tend to be kinda pasty white), but I really luv this color for some reason....

Dress #3, again no clue what colors they have but this is more what I want or am looking for it's flowing, lose, and simple..

Dress #4 isn't really an option as the store doesn't have it in stock, but I just had to put it here because if i wasn't such a procrastinator this would be the dress. i absolutely love this dress, but sadly not an option, so instead I can look at it and wonder... and dream

so i need help, which one do you like most??
i won't know until next weekend as we aren't going to the shop until Saturday but any help or suggestions would be appreciated as i'm totally lost on this one

I like dress #1 personally. Though it looks like for these dresses you might have to buy a special bra. Don't know if that's an obstacle for you (it would be for me).

It is hard to tell from the pictures, you really have to try them on and see if you feel comfortable in them. I like 2 or 3 best, but that is because I think 1 is very clingy and I don't like clingy. Clingy doesn't work for me, it may look great on you. I think all of them, you'll need a special bra, but it shouldn't cost too much. Let us know what you pick. At least they are all pretty, and you can wear it again. Not the awful bridesmaid dresses I have had to wear, a one time deal.
XOXO

Just telling it like it is said...

Well, my Gay boyfriend says that I am not that fashionable and I would have to agree on his part...
How tall are you??
1# and 2# seem to state modern wedding...ya know...
I liked both colors for you though...
Oh shopping for wedding dresses are the pit...you never what to look better than the bride...but then again you don't want to be caught dead in Puffy yellow curtain like shoulder..Opps I hope that is now what the bride was leaning for...Don't tell her I said that if she does...you'll have to rock on the puffy yellow shoulders like a champ!!!
Thanks for stopping by

Hey sis,
I prefer #3 because it is the least clingy and, I think, could be the most casual for a beach wedding. #1 is too clingy and the material is not the most flattering. #2 is too dressy, I think. And, I think that #4 might actually be more difficult to wear than you think. Also, keep in mind that you are not very tall so don't go too long and that dresses with the crazy, jagged hems are not that easy to wear. Good luck. Just look for a fabulous colour!!

I say #3...especailly for a beach wedding. If it were indoors, I would say #1. It would be great if you could get #3 in the color of #1...But I also do LOVE the orange as well...

I was probably no help for you there...

I like #4 the best! And #2...I don't know if I like the color better or the dress! I think the color!

Beth said...
