|Dress 1||Dress 2||Dress 3|
But it was helpful anyway, because every time someone voted for Dress 1, I figured it was a wasted vote. It looked great on, but it's not the style that I want and I think I'd regret choosing it if I did (which I won't, so no regrets!). And that leaves two.
I was surprised at how much people online seemed to like Dress 3 (my mom doesn't even refer to it when we talk about dresses I like, but it's for sure in my Top 2), but I found myself concerned that everyone was disagreeing with me... and when I realized that it felt like a disagreement, I realized that there couldn't be one (a disagreement) unless I had already made my choice, which is Dress 2. :) See how much you all helped me?
But I'm really not totally certain between 2 and 3admittedly, Dress 2 was the least flattering of the three (but it was still very pretty, I thought, and no one at my wedding will be doing a side-by-side comparison!), and Dress 3 is exactly the shape that I thought would look best on me. But the beading in Dress 2 has always really appealed to me (it reminds me of the Pakistani "dress" that I'd get if I (1) could afford it, and (2) weren't such a chicken!), while the bling on Dress 3 is kind of... eh.
The price difference between the two is only $80, so I can't really make my decision that way. Arg, I don't know yet. More thinking to be done! (By the way, anyone with an opinion can certainly still vote. I haven't made up my mind yet, and I enjoy your input. Even if I might not ultimately follow it. :)
