    Default Please help me pick a wedding dress!

    I am going to be ordering my wedding dress online because I simply don't have the time or money to traipse around shops. The plan is that I will actually buy 2 dresses so I have a back up. I have my first choice dress picked out but I need help picking the 2nd choice.

    I'm tall but I won't be wearing super high heels (no more than 1.5 inches). I also have a *cough* tummy and, well, I'm about a size 18 but I look about a size 16. I'm still a classic pear shape. I would prefer straps and/or sleeves to:
    a. hide the bra straps as I'm big up top and would prefer to wear a strapped bra rather than a strapless
    b. the tops of my arms are disproportionately large compared to the rest of me so I would like to hide them.
    However, I would sacrifice this if the dress gave a more flattering style overall.

    What dress should I go for? (Which ever dress I pick it will be in ivory.)

    This is the First Choice dress - in ivory.

    Second choice options:

    What kind of atmosphere do you plan on having for your wedding? Formal, smart casual?...

    Venue. Beach, church or garden?...

    I think your first choice would look the best

    When I went shopping I am fairly pear shaped and the style of the bottom two dress I don't think would suit at all as the fitted section ends too high.

    The others end lower so I think one of those would be a better second choice 3 or 4 would be my pick

    Cliff top - to represent marriage.

    It's a deck on a cliff top high up with a spectacular view of vast areas of rain forest with a quiet dinner afterwards with just family.
