Beautiful moments, looking forward for 2017
Congrats on your engagement! I’m getting married in April and my BIGGEST tip going into your dress appointment is to have an open mind. I had something totally different in mind but was open to suggestions from the stylist and she picked my dress (I didn’t even want to try it on). It was the very first dress I put on and absolutely fell in LOVE! These are all SO gorgeous–love the cap sleeves!
The first one with the sheer floral back is definitely my favorite, so beautiful!!

They are all beautiful. I guess I do lean towards a leaner silhouette though. I don’t like the fuller ones like in picture 2 or 4. I would also stay away from the spaghetti strapped ones as in picture 4.
Wow! So exciting! Your ring is gorgeous. I love all these dresses sans #4…you are going to be a gorgeous bride
I had to link up my wedding photos that I was showing yesterday on the blog! It’s such a great time and part of the fun is the planning!!
Congrats!!! And your ring is beyond beautiful!! I love 1 and 5 wedding style dresses, those are right up my alley. For my wedding I wore a mermaid dress, being only 4’10 I felt like it honestly was the best shape for me. I wish you all the luck planning your wedding and dress shopping. I’m sure you have heard it everywhere, but you will truly know which dress is the “one” right away, you will like many, but only love that one!
Thanks for hosting,
Looks like a fun NYE! You would look beautiful in any of those dresses!!! Happy New Year and thanks for hosting 🙂
Trendy & Tidy
You would look great even in a rubbish sack! I love no.1 or no.5 I can see you in either of those. Thank you for hosting x
Congratulations, again!! I love that you are getting married in March and not putting it off for such a long time. I did the same thing and never regretted it. I still love my dress- a sheath- to this day.
While I think all the styles would look gorgeous on you, I see you in the first- the sheer back with floral design.
I love the first one, but the last one is really great as well!
Oh they are all gorgeous! But I LOVE the first one!! My wedding was 15 years ago (those flew by), but mine was all lace. And it was a sheath dress. Simple but elegant. Perfect for our backyard wedding!
#5! That’s my favorite 🙂 Best Wishes!
