Choosing a wedding dress is much more difficult that I thought — and so I’m “calling a friend” so to speak! After lots of effort, I’ve narrowed it down to my 5 fave styles. Then I had my bridesmaids give each of them a score from 1-5 and tell me what they thought! See if you agree with their comments, and tell me which one you would choose for me!
Each of my bridesmaids rated the dresses out of a possible 5 stars
♥ Dress 1
Mandy: Even though I’m a fan of lace, I I’ve never seen my sister wear lace in her life, so this just doesn’t seem like it could be “her dress”. Plus I’d want a little bit less lace. I do like the shape of the dress though.
Annalea: It’s a pretty dress, but too feminine for this basketball pro. Cut the lace.
Gaezelle: The Spanish lace style of this dress gives it a “romantic’ look to its overall quality, which fits her theme in mind for her big day. The deep V-neck line is flattering on Angel and really shows off her décolletage. Simplicity at its best!
Doris: Since Angel wants a Rustic Modern theme, this one is my favourite of the bunch! The delicate lace detailing, open back, and beautiful train brings to mind a romantic garden party hung with string lanterns and fireflies fluttering about.
♥ Dress 2
Mandy: I like the silkiness of the dress but it might not be suitable for the “rustic” theme of the wedding. Also, the draping and mesh flowers aren’t that flattering. But I do like the mini-train.
Annalea: I like the silky material and slim fit, but we would need to lose the feather on the shoulder.
Gaezelle: Heads will turn if this is the dress she chooses. I do however; find the feathers on the shoulder piece a bit distracting. Overall, the fit of the dress showcases Angels’ figure. But, I think this dress is better worn for a different occasion…definitely red carpet!
Doris: This one reminds me more of an evening gown than a wedding dress. Not a huge fan of the seam on the skirt but the feathers are cute!
♥ Dress 3
Mandy: Too haute couture for my taste. And the neck looks stuffy and itchy! But the sweetheart neckline looked nice, and my sister looked happy wearing it – just don’t know if she’d just like that style for one of her special occasion dresses, or for her ultimate wedding dress!
Annalea: This looks very regal. Something for the runway but with the theme of her wedding being rustic elegant I think it’s too haute couture.
Gaezelle: I think Victoria Beckham glam when I see this dress. The lacing on the halter I find gives the illusion that Angel’s shoulders are too broad. Angel likes unique/couture dresses, however, this dress may be too “off the runaway” for her wedding day.
Doris: Angel is swimming in this one but if it were fitted to her size, the high collar neckline is very pretty.
♥ Dress 4
Mandy: My favourite of the bunch! Absolutely love the lace bodice, and I told Angel immediately that I can really see her walking down the aisle in this dress! The material of the dress is a bit heavy, but I think it can totally be “the dress” if the dress material is abit more light and flowy.
Gaezelle: It has a whimsical feel to it – the sweetheart lace is absolutely gorgeous! The neckline gives her the look of a full bust (and who doesn’t want that! LOL) and this dress fits her like a glove. The only critique is that it’s too bottom-heavy; if the overall silhouette of the bottom half is altered, this is a WINNER in my eyes.
Annalea: If this dress was a different material I could see Angel walking down the runway in it. There’s some nice lace at the top, but then its simple yet elegant – a classic look.
Doris: I heart the sweetheart neckline on her! Not sold on the material though as it seems a little to stiff for the occasion.
♥ Dress 5
Mandy: I find the one shoulder-sweetheart neckline too trendy for a wedding dress. However, I love the low back, and also the lace. Annalea: I like the overall look and feel of this dress, the little feathers should be removed as they are a bit distracting but otherwise I like the swarovski accents and shape of the dress. The one shoulder is also a nice touch. Gaezelle: The one shoulder strap and deep V scoop on the back, gives this dress a glamorous look. The lace and beading detail is quite intricate throughout the train, that you do have to be careful while wearing this dress (CAUTION: fabric snagging will occur!). Aside from the one shoulder, this dress does not have a lot of character and WOW- factor so I don’t thinks it’s “the dress”! Doris: The one shoulder strap is special feature and looks great on Angel! I love how this dress flows…very magical 🙂
